Ok, I bought this air con remote for the school I work at since they all went missing and nobody could turn them on. Since the school has several different brands of air conditioner, I thought this would be a perfect remote since you can preset up to 4 different air conditioners. Since it didn't have Kelvinator listed, I decided to auto-scan. It couldn't find a matching code using the auto search, but after manually inputting different code, I finally found a code that turned it on. Hoorah, I thought, but the only function that worked was on/off and it set the temp to 30 degree!! Few other buttons seem to work but could not adjust the temperature...
Pros: easy to use
Cons: doesn't work as well as the manufacture remote

After hunting around for a replacement remote to an "Emailair" brand split system air conditioner and finding out their remotes cost over $200 I thought I'd try a universal remote. When I bought this one DS offered to refund my money if it didn't work even before I could ask which was nice.
When I got it home Emailair wasn't listed as a known brand in the instructions, but using the auto search it did manage to find a code that worked and I now have a working air conditioner again just in time for winter!
If anyone else has an Emailair, I used Whirlpool code "175".
Pros: easy to setup, worked for a non-listed brand

I have two units that are missing controls, tried one and it works but the other one didn't and was not listed and in turn didn't function.
Purchased another product online - Chunghop K-1028E which worked on both air conditioners, only drawback was that I needed to buy two as they only had one air con memory per control. But at $17AUD fully delivered in 3 days, you cannot go wrong! Over 1,000 brands.

I have purchased this, and as per the second review it doesnt work for me. I havent given up although and not about to write a nasty review ... ultimately I have a cheap low end airconditioner and like the previous review it isn't on the listing for codes. There is an auto setup option as well, and I have run this to no joy at this stage. There is an email address in the packaging and they state response within 3 days, so I shall be patient. Basically, if you have a 'name brand' airconditioner you will be set completely. Then there is a list of lessor known brands also showing on this listing. My suggestion is that when you purchase in store, ask the staff to open the packaging. If your make/model is showing in the list then you're probably in with a chance and LUCKY YOU!! If its not, well be prepared to muck about with it a bit at home and also be prepared to return it to the store (which DS are really great about!!!). End of the day, if you don't have a remote that is working, then guess what .... this is a better option than nothing. Good luck :)
Pros: easy to work out and program
Cons: the instructions are really brief

Purchased two units. Neither work. They are not listed on the OneForAll website as a supported product. Complete waste of time. Strong letter following.
