Hitachi, Ltd — hitachi a/c 1.5 ton defect product delivered
We have purchased Hitachi split a/c 1.5 ton on 24th April
2017 from vasanth & co Asaripallam branch, Nagercoil. The installation was completed on 26th april 2017. From the day A/C connected it is not cooling enough to room and keep on running without cut off. I called and informed next day of installation to the dealer Vasanth & Co and got a phone number of Hitachi service head, Nagercoil. He told it will take some time to cool entire room. so please wait like that...
As i am working in out of station, i moved to Bangalore with in 3 days of purchase. But my family used it for 15 days and we got an electricity bill around 4000 RS and our parents stopped using it. I could raise complaint immediately at that time. But unfortunately i am not able to do it as i am in Bangalore location. I made a mistake there. As we are in out of station, we are not able to use it for last 3 months.
Further to the problem identified on Sep 30'th 2017, we have raised complaint on 1st and 2nd of Oct 2017 to Hitachi service head and hitachi customer care directly. A/c service technician (who installed) visited and informed:
1) Gas leaked, so other person will come to fix the leak and refill the gas for 15 days used product - on day 1 (On Oct 3'rd)
2) Gas is leaking and not able to identify the leakage area. So we need to take it to service office and then they removed both indoor and out door unit and keep it in outside of our home to take it to their office - day 2 (On Oct 4'th)
3) No one come and collect it till now which removed by Hitachi service team a day ago. Still it is in outside of our house where they keep it. As they requested we are ready to pay Transport expense. But no luck and no response from Hitachi service head Nagercoil. As i raised an complaint to National Service Center - Mr Vishal Marar - Manager, National Service Center, they are not interested to collect the product to fix the issue.

I am not able to raise the escalate to second level of Hitachi Management. Still it is showing "Please wait for 24 hour/'s.Our Hitachi Support team will contact you shortly.Please note if your issue not resolved within 24 hrs.you can escalate your issue to next level.!" I have raised this first level of complaint more than 24 hrs back.
For all these communications no proper response from both Hitachi service and Vasanth & co dealer. I am trying to connect Manager of Vasanth & Co dealer, every-time new person attend the call and fed up with explaining above details.
We have purchased a/c and still we are suffering in hot and watching it in outside of our home that when Hitachi service team come and collect the product which removed from our room.
Our money and time is not valued for both Hitachi and Vasanth & co.
We are highly disappointed with the Hitachi service.
We request you to replace the complete unit with new air conditioner without any complaints as soon as possible. We are ready to pay extra money if needed for exchange or replacement.
Please help & suggest on this issue.
