No help from Dometic 3 weeks out of warranty

I have a CFX375DZ. Three weeks out of warranty it has leaked all its gas somewhere in the wall of the fridge. Can’t be repaired and Dometic don’t want anything to do with it. Absolutely rubbish for a $2000 fridge. Show details

Poor product support, poor service

Pity I cant give negative stars. Totally disappointed that after 7 years simple parts are no longer available and I have to write off a $1000 fridge. Dometic Australia totally unhelpful. No more Dometic products for me.

WOULDN'T BUY..SHORT TIME ITS LASTED

Brought from new in November 2019, so have had just over 4 years, well looked after, not bashed around, elderly owner and now it has lost its gas, electrical problems and have been told it will be approximatly $500/$600 to re-gas and fix electrical. Surely being a DOMETIC PRODUCT should have lasted longer than this. Show details

Works great. So far, so good

Have done 4 trips now and worked well. It is a big beast but holds everything. Prob uses a little more power than advised. Show details

Just over 3 years old. FREEZES everything!

Purchased January 2020. Used it on a few trips, but mainly as a shed fridge for drinks. No issues until recently started freezing regardless of temp set. The switch is on NORMAL USE, not EMERGENCY. Obviously the thermistor is not working correctly. For such as expensive piece of equipment I thought it would have lasted longer.

Just out of warranty and the control panel quits

It's been used daily for just over three years. It's had an easy life not abused, several of the control panel buttons are not working now. Pretty disappointing for the cost of these things.Edit on the plus side I got the WI-FI going and got it going again. Show details

If I could give 0 stars I would

We bought it. It did not work on 12V. We got a warranty repair - the 12V cord was faulty. It worked for 2 days. It stopped working again on 12V. Won’t even turn on. We are on a road trip without a fridge. I’m going to go buy an Engel. I need a reliable fridge and know they work. Might even leave this one on the side of the road at a rubbish bin. It’s that bad. Not fit for purpose. Show details

No customer warranty care

Our 10. Month old fridge stopped working. We took it to the Dometic repair agent but we needed another fridge to continue on with. Oh NO that’s customer service. We were treated like it was our fault the computer board died. Even with our continued persistence and harassment it took 5 1/2 months to return the fridge fixed. JUST DONT BUY A DOMETIC THEY DONT CARE WHEN IT FAILS Show details

Pathetic customer service

Emailed support as my new cfx 75dz does not work on dc power. I advised I was going off grid camping after Christmas. They did not have the courtesy to tell me that they were finishing for the year. I was asked to try a few things (none of which fixed the problem) I emailed advising this. When I got no response I rang the help line to hear a recording they had finished for the year. Boxing Day I’m going to buy an Engle.

Very reliable great fridge

Three years in and this fridge has performed great. It has not been switched off in this time frame and has been running on 12v and sometimes 24volt permanently mounted in a vehicle. The fridge has been exposed to very cold climates and also very hot climates at the top of Australia and has done a great job. It has mainly been used as a freezer over the last 12 months and has no problem keeping temperatures at minus 15 degrees in both compartments.
I have had two upright 12/24 fridges(other brands) to compare this chest too and I would say that the Dometic Waeco has been by far the better fridge freezer. I would certainly recommend and would buy another if needed.
Fridge is kept out of direct sunlight and I also use the insulated bag. Show details

lack of response and extensive delay on repairs

I sent my Dometic portable fridge to Atlanta Refrigeration in Adelaide for a warranty repair more than three weeks ago. I was told the repairer has been waiting for a part and the supplier has not advised ETA. I had to ring up Dometic directly to find out the status of the part. Not a happy experience and the customer service is poor. Show details

Fridge cannot hold temp required, shuts down food all defrosted

We purchased our fridge a few months ago we are in our first trip, we cooled it down with 240 v prior to leaving home, once connected to our vehicle it struggled to maintain temp all the frozen food defrosted we arrived at site and connected it to the camper batteries still unable to bring temp down to correct levels , we then connect to 240v mains seemed to lower temp for an hour or so then shut down, not a happy camper I will be calling Anaconda today and asking for a refund should have chosen the old reliable Ingle Show details

The large compartment is set to 2 deg and the smaller one set to -15. The compressor seems to run all the time and large compartment measures-18 with a separate thermometer but showing 11 on the readout on the fridge.
