I had bought a 1.5 ton ONIDA Split AC model number SZ18GLS from Vijay Sales Opera House branch making 100% fullpayment through my credit card on 14th April 2008. My AC was installed on 23rd April 2008 after chasing the company installation team several times. The AC was wrongly installed resulting in a huge rattling sound, after several complaints and phone calls another technician was sent who tweaked the AC vents and now the AC vents dont open and operate properly and there is huge amount of wated which pours out of the AC, so much so that I need to keep a bucket to collect the water.

I have tried reaching the ONIDA service centre numbers, the people who installed Mr. Ahmed, and another service head Mr. Pawan, they have continuously ignored my phone and kept their phone switched off. I have even tried calling the ONIDA customer Service number and filed several complaints which has resulted in no action. I tried calling their corporate office but could not get through and now have just gotten fed up with the whole thing.

My request is to please help me with my AC, have someone attend it and fix it so that I can use it or else replace it with a new AC, same brand same AC

I am writing hoping that you will be able to reach to the company and so something about it. I have very litle faith in service standards of Indian companies and the whole customer service levels of Indian businesses in general

thanking you.
We bought ONIDA Make Split A/C . The quality is very inferior as compared to other A/C Machine. Within one year we got three problems and A/C remains off during our requirement. Attitude of the dealer as well as company's is not resolving the issues/problems in the A/C but blaming on Customers like passing to the installation person. We really got surprised seeing the attitude of the person and finally we need to arrange from the outsiders to get it repaired within one year.
What is the use of going with ONIDA (Branded Product) when we are not getting after sales services.

Onida — no post sale service

unfortunately i purchased one power convection 20 dlx of your company about 7 months ago just to land up in a mesh . now i find all details of consumers help lines are bogus and those numbers does not exists neither i could get any update on the net. henceforth i will strongly recomend others not to buy any onida products to ruin your hard earned money.

Samsung — Create rattle sound problem

The after sales service is very very poor. I bought a Split A/c (1.5 T) just in April 2008 and water drips inside the room. When called on the service personnel, they first of all do not attend to our calls. On the other hand, if they land on our call, they charge for the service and it is really surprising how could they charge when it is under WARRANTY. I now feel that ONIDA products are not worthy going in for. SAMSUNG products are the best and after sales service is excellent.

onida air conditioner-1.5 tonnes (two) — not cooling

the airconditioner was purchased two three years back and since then it has given trouble time and again.
at present it again is not cooling.
i am just planning to buy a AC, i decide go for ONIDA AC when i search through net i saw this article.now i changed my mind i will buy samsung ac
i think this is the worst after service company in the world. thanks to this forum
Worst... I would never recommed ONIDA brand AC for anyone...My complains sums up with all the above said complaints...I am thoroughly disappointed for the worth of my money is wasted
Every word rings true ..they have one of the worst customer service ...i am at hyderabad and their local customer care adonis at abids, is one such example of that..have to litrally beg them to get my ac serviced..though i have an onida tv too.. ihave sweared never to touch an onida product in my lifetime..and will never recommend others to make the same mistake.
I fully agree with the complaints registered above. I bought 2 Onida ACs about a week back. Poor installation and I have made more than 50 calls to the service people to attend to it and so far the response is very bad. The worst after sales service. Registering our complaints on this page alone will not work. I wish the service department is pulled up. PLEASE DON'T EVER GO IN FOR ONIDA ACs.
I too bought a 1.5 ton ONIDA Split AC model number SZ18GLS in the month of April 2008. I face cooling problems with this AC.Some of my friends and some other AC technicians recommended ONIDA and hence I opted for ONIDA . I opted for a different model Deco Glass but the sales person recommended this model and i paid the full amount for this AC and now i am not at all satisfied with the cooling and its very worst.If i call the service people, they attend the issue and tell some reasons and finally they say its working fine and they leave but still its very bad and it makes noise in the indoor Unit.Can Any one suggest me what to do with this Issue ?? I do work for night shift and i need to sleep in day time in this Hot condition in chennai. Just because of this i spent the money which i earned out of working hard and got this AC and im not satisfied with it. Some one Please help how to proceed.my Email : killivalavanm@gmail.com
I brought 1.5 ton split a/c from local dealer 2 years ago. Every year when summer comes we are facing low cooling problem. This year also starting this trouble. I am not at all satisfied with the cooling and its very worst.If i call the service people, they will attend the issue after lot's of complain calls and tell some reasons and finally they say its working fine and they leave. Also some technicians of the company told me that I made a mistake by buying ONIDA SPLIT A/C they also are fade up to solve this same problems. FINALLY I HAVE DECIDED TO NOT TO SUGGEST ANY OF MY FRIENDS / RELATIVES TO BUY THIS "BAKVAS" A/C.
I am planning to buy AC machine. One of my collegue recommed to buy ONIDA Brand. So I searched a good onida dealer in chennai through internet. After reading this complaints I am decided to change my attitude. Thanks to all for saving my hardest earned money.
