"Broan & Nordyne is all"
This is another situation I have here. I own Repair Air. I just want you to know this is another piece of sh*t manufactured and sold. They leak refrigerant in the outdoor units. Cheaply made equipment, they all rattle. I was under the impression, according to your warranty, that you guarantee the equipment to be free from defects? The issue I am having here is no one seems to want to make this right for me as the contractor and my customers. I am reaching out to you in my last attempt for a qp replacement. I want to resolve this. You offer a 1 year replacement pledge but I think it's a lie. You don't seem to stand by your product or your so called "dealers". I have a few units that need to be replaced. They all leak refrigerant in the od units! What kind of company is this seriously? This is a joke! In case you're not getting the hint... This is below low grade equipment. If you are a contractor thinking about selling Nordyne equipment, don't! And if you're thinking about purchasing this for your home, do yourself a huge favor! Take it from me, please don't do it either! Read the other reviews. I read them before I wrote this! The people are telling the truth and if you don't believe this then find out for yourself! Good luck! I hope I can help someone here choose reliable comfort!

Had work done to it for 5 years, now need to replace a coil. Now it's going to cost $1500 to fix.

"Failure to stand behind their product"
Hi, I purchased a unit from ******* *** in Rockledge, Florida. They also installed it. I purchased this a little over a year ago. Since day one, there have been numerous problems with the unit causing numerous days and nights without having heat or air conditioning. The most recent was the compressor going bad and having to be replaced. I decided to get a second opinion when I kept having problems after the compressor was replaced and even more problems were uncovered and not resolved. It is costing me $1600.00 this time for the repairs on a practically new unit. I called and was given the runaround and told I would be called back, which has not happened yet. This is such incredibly poor service from both Nordyne and ******* ***. However, Nordyne authorized ******* *** to sell their products, so they bear the ultimate responsibility.

Had Comfort Masters of Poplar Bluff, Mo install a brand new unit in 2006, in my rental home. Every year there has been a problem and now I was just told the compressor is out at a cost to install of $1700. Never buy any of their products, they are worthless and a money pit.

You know some of these units were good but a few years ago, they had some terrible condensers. One in particular we replaced the entire unit 3 times and changed the compressor once. They had a harmonic problem that caused a leak at the condenser coil distributor. A recurring problem in other units. The local distributor quit handling them. It is a Nordyne, going by the name Philco, Frigidaire, Tappan, Maytag and Gibson. We will never purchase them again. Went simply with Ruud which we almost never have problems. Ended up putting a Ruud in the house we replaced the Nordyne in repeatedly. No problems since.

"Says Model FS4BI-O36K, Piece of Feces, Misery to Get Anybody Who Knows/Wants to Service Them, Thermostat Nightmare, Quiet!"
Have Q drive 23 seer, Nordyne brags about quiet. Yes, since it often does not work, local dealer of Frigidaire will not sell them. Reluctant to service, 7 out of 8 reports saying they are crap. Beware, getting thru Frigidaire and Nordyne people is difficult. I can talk to the pope easier than getting Frigidaire or Nordyne manager to return call. This am after 22-minute hold, back to me by tomorrow company droll said, useless. Thermostat too confusing, definitely an overpriced "quiet" piece of feces. Lousy support, difficult, expensive to fix. Even if you find someone without manufacturer help. Crap! Crap! Crap! Ask me what I really think. BEWARE. Recommend to your enemies!

Got this AC with my new home. Worked fine for 6 years and now it has quit. Such a shame that a person pays so much for something to just last 6 years. We didn't even use it that much. Never ran it at night. Shame on the company for making a piece of junk.

Came with my new home as a 16 seer unit, at first did its job well. However at almost 2 years, its freon accumulator failed bringing the compressor to quit. Found a great service company to replace compressor, then found reason that it failed (Accumulator). They fixed that and replaced compressor under warranty (if you call it that, had to pay labor). Come to find out Ironwood Homes never registered unit so I only have a 5 year warranty. Shame on Ironwood and Nordyne. I will not put another dime in this brand. Further, I am telling everyone I know to stay away from Nordyne.

"Don't buy Nordyne..."
These systems are garbage so if you are determined to buy one make sure you get an extended labor warranty because if not you're going to spend a lot of your money on service calls for the replacement of components that have design defects. I've got two units and after the 2 year mark they've begun falling apart. The contractor that installed them for me has admitted that many of his other customers where he installed Nordynes are experiencing similar problems as well.
