Complaints & Reviews

American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]ac unit

Our AC & heating unit is 20 plus years old. We have had service requests for the unit 5 or 6 times. They keep putting a band aid on it but it's like pulling teeth. Currently we have been waiting on most recent service request decisions and keep getting put it off. He accused my husband of putting a fan in the unit upside down but my husband hasn't touched it only the contractors sent out by the warranty company. Each request we get a different service repair company.

    American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]Refrigerator

    I submitted a service request about my not working refrigerator back in January 17, I requested a rush service since I have a newborn, the technician came over & said he ordered the parts to get it fixed, I was told it shouldn't take more than January to get it fixed working, well they don't have the parts and they don't even have answers as of when they estimated to get it fixed. it is now March 6th, Teo months after and I still don't have my refrigerator working, neither the parts & they always refuse to transfer me over to a supervisor. I have called several times and have asked to speak to a supervisor but they always refused to transfer me over.
    W hat is the point of having a warranty company if they all are procrastinating to get my refrigerator fixed, and I honestly don't understand why it's been almost two months and nothing, how can a family survive without a refrigerator, a warranty service shouldn't take this long as I mentioned this is completely unacceptable.

        American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]Customer service

        Today I called to request service because of a clogged toilet and tub. I was given all the information to file the claim but it took me over 18 minutes and 49 seconds. I had to ask the person, Moren, to please speak up. I had to asked her to repeat information because she did not seem to understand my words or spelling. I asked her if she would please note that we (my son and I) are disabled. She said to call the assigned company and tell them. She said I would get a call for an appointment. I called the plumbing company that was assigned and left a message.

        After an hour I called American Home Shield back. The first person hung up once I explained my reason for calling (2 minutes and 26 seconds). I called back. I explained to Abby my concerns and our need to have contact and service today. She said she would check. I was on hold for 14 minutes and 22 seconds. Ela came on the line and asked why I was calling. I asked what happened to Abby. She could not give me an acceptable response. I then had to repeat all the information again to get assistance. She said the plumbing company would get back to me and do the work today. During the call I had trouble understanding what she was saying. My daughter was in the room with me and she also could not understand the woman. I asked to speak with a supervisor. She advised that the supervisor would say the same thing she had. I said I still wanted to speak with a supervisor.

        After waiting for a supervisor I was disconnected. I spent 47 minutes 1 second on the phone and nothing was accomplished. The customer service at American Home Shield is non existent. You would think for such a large company they would want to do a better job.

        It is over two hours and I still don't know if and when I will get service.

          American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]Leaking pipes

          To whom this may concern,

          I have been in my home since 2016 and I inherit American Home and Shield from the buyer so I kept the insurance however I have had to use it a few times, but over the summer of 2018 one day I was at work and the rain was fall very heavy and my basement got flooded. My home is equipped with a sunk pump but at this time for some odd reason it didn't work anyhow my family and I clean up the basement right after that I got on the phone with AHS. The representative that took my call was very apologetic anyhow a plumber was assigned (Gregory Rossi) and a phone number of (215) 67+66-3650. Mr. Rossi was not friendly he then enter into my basement stood over my pump and said to me it broken, it's not sitting in the proper pit properly and that AHS will not fix or replace my pump. He then took some pictures and said that he will submit the pictures and his written statement and they will call me, well they did and told me that my pit or my pump was not covered and I told them that I was not too pleased with Mr. Gregory and I did not pay him or AHS.

          Moving on to December 27, 2018 I was home for the holidays and I was selling urine so I call my husband just to make sure I wasn't crazy so my husband conformed the smell. I then call AHS for this new problem again and the reprehensive was very apologetic as always but it went downhill very fast because if you remember during the summer, I did NOT PAY for the service that I was not satisfied with. The representative told me that I had to make that payment plus the $75.00 it would cost for this visit totaling &150.00 and I was infuriated over that. I refresh the person that I was on the phone with about me terrible encounter with Mr. Rossi, I needed service in my home so you can bet that smoke was coming out my ears and nose I make the payment and receive conformation, I was once again assigned Mr. Rossi I do believed in giving people second chances. Mr. Rossi give me a call soon after he receive the assignment which was just a few minutes after my call ended and said to me "miss Bing I'm in the neighborhood do you mind if I stop by now so we can get the ball rolling before the new" and I said sure. I told my husband and we waited for Mr. Rossi arrive the same unfriendly (my honest opinion it that he was RACES) person. He enter my residents look at me disintegrating sewer pipes and he did not follow AHS protocol which I believe is to take pictures and write up an report about the job and submit it to you AHS and he did not do that.

          You can check my call log into American Home Shield from January 2019 to maybe June 2019 and review the conversation some of them were very heated. I'm not going to apologize because NO ONE FROM AHS DIDN'T CALL ME NOT EVEN TO SAY HELLO but they had the nerve to send me a COMPLETE Survey form for a work order that was never produced by MR. Rossi and the work that was never done. December 27, 2019 will be here soon once again and my pipes are still the same way (disintegrating) and most of all my family and I are breading in some form of asbestos because my house was built way back when also every month AHS takes my MONEY from my account.

          I was never send a denial letter from AHS but by not full filling or keeping up their end of our contract that, I was discriminated against just because I'M A BLACK WOMAN and that is why Mr. Rossi did not file my claim.

            American Home ShieldHeat pump system

            In May of 2019 I started having air conditioning problems. AHS sent out someone. The reaction was out of Freon. Freon was put in at most of my expense only for it to happen again shortly. A different service company was sent out by AHS with same issue. Then I was told AHS was going to get a second opinion when I suggested maybe I needed a new ac. To backtrack AhC had replaced the system in 2015. So I called one of the companies that had already been out to be told that a 3 ton was too small for a 4300 sq ft home. I thought I had a five ton unit. So I decided to replace the unit myself because by now it was already June. I called AHS and during my conversation was told that I did have a 5 ton unit back in 2015 but somehow it had accidentally been replaced with a 3 ton unit. I was told by Jamie that if I sent in the bill($17, 678.00) (dispatch #[protected]) they would agree to pay me a cash out settlement for $1804.33. As you will agree that was an insult because the whole heat pump system had to be converted to 5 ton. I sent all the info in June and again in August each time being told that it was approved and I should be getting a check for the $1804.33. It is now October, numerous calls stating the same agreement but no money has been sent. I have used AHS many years and cannot believe that they acknowledged the mistake and have avoided doing anything to correct, it. I am 76 years old and feel I have been taken advantage of. Each time I have had to call and be on the phone close to an hour each time. I demand action at this point. When you call there is no customer complaint department. Please someone help me

              American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]ahs warranty

              On 9/19/19 we had a call for our Saltwater Pool pump. When the tech came out he stated that the Electrolysis Cell / Board was bad and needed to be replaced. That night AHS called and told us if we buy the upgraded saltwater equipment coverage it would be covered. So we added it.
              On 9/24/2019 we submitted another claim for this (the Salt Water Cell). When the tech came out he said that this is due to lack of maintenance. We had just bought the house Labor Day weekend. When we did the inspection it was never reported that the salt water cell was bad. The first company (South Tampa Pools & Spa) that came out said it's not working due to poor or lack of maintenance. Since we moved in we have hired Pool Guardians to come out and take care of our pool. The pool not working is due to previous owners. We also have our weekly reporting sent by our maintenance company to provide the proof of our maintenance.
              We asked for a 2nd opinion on the pool since the company was not helping. The 2nd company came out and said the salt is too low to perform any tests and left. So again AHS refused to cover anything. The reason the salt is low is because the Salt Water Cell will not produce and keep the salt water levels up.
              According to our contract it states:
              C. BASIC COVERAGE
              1. Coverage under your Agreement is for your owned or rented residential property as it has been represented to AHS. Coverage under your Agreement does not include commercial property or premises converted into a business or to which the general public is invited for business purposes.
              2. except as otherwise specified by your Agreement, Covered Items under your Agreement must be:
              a. Installed under the roof, within the confines of the structural walls, and on or above the main foundation of the home (excluding porches, patios,
              and other adjacent or detached structures unless specifically covered by your Agreement), within an attached or detached fully enclosed garage capable of parking one or more motor vehicles, or within a guest unit as separately defined by AHS (if guest unit coverage has been elected).
              Note: a detached garage or other building may qualify as a guest unit; and
              b. Manufactured for non-commercial residential application.
              3. The following also may be Covered Items (if included in your Agreement) if they are installed and manufactured for outside use or located in a structure which fully protects them from the elements: air conditioning, heating, electrical panel, water heater, cleanout, pressure regulator, exterior well pump, septic tank, sewage ejector pumps, or pool and/or spa equipment.
              4. Coverage under your Agreement is for a Covered Item malfunction occurring during your Agreement Term caused by:
              a. Normal wear and tear of the Covered Item;
              b. Rust or corrosion of the Covered Item;
              c. Improper good faith installation, repair, or modification of the Covered Item (such good faith efforts shall not be subject to the exclusion provided for in Section D.6.a. Below);
              d. System installation where component units of the Covered Item were not properly matched to each other for proper operation; or
              e. Insufficient maintenance of the Covered Item.
              5. A Covered Item malfunction that predates your Agreement Term is not covered under your Agreement unless the malfunction(1) was revealed during
              a home or other inspection that predated your Agreement Term and subsequent proof of repair is provided to AHS' reasonable satisfaction; or (2) is undetectable by ordinary visual inspection of the Covered Item. For example, a visual inspection that reveals damage or a missing component or part (e.g. a missing dishwasher door) indicating inoperability would not be covered under your Agreement.
              6.When addressing a Covered Item malfunction, unless an alternative procedure or other provision under your Agreement applies, AHS will make
              arrangements in accordance with your Agreement to:
              a. Repair or replace the Covered item,
              b. Dismantle and remove associated defective equipment, as reasonably performable by the dispatched Service Contractor, and
              c. Recapture, reclaim, and/or dispose of refrigerant, as applicable.

              Even discussing this with them and waiting for 30+ mins for my account to be reviewed and 40+ to speak to a supervisor being hung up on; they just say over and over they will not cover maintenance and its not it is a bad part that is covered under warranty that needs to be replaced. I need assistance with getting this resolved its now almost a month later and just having head aches.

                American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]home warranty protection

                I submitted a home warranty claim for a leaking toilet on May 13, 2019 to AHS. Even NB after numerous complaints, the tools has not been fixed as of October 7, 2019. I paid this company a monthly fee of $40 for at year plus a $100 service fee. In addition, I have incurred high water bills and lost rental income because of their constant delays and excuses in procuring a special order toilet handle from Kohler. The company is too cheap to replace the toilet. Worst customer service I have ever encountered in my life!

                  American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]non compliance with contract

                  I have the same problem as many others have. The differences are that mine cost me over $3000.00. AHS has given zero toward any repairs. When they were contacted my wife had to argue with them as I was in bad shape as my Asma was high and I could hardly breathe. They finely got some out there, it was two dates later. We were told that the unit was built in the 1990s. They could fix it, but the cost would be over 500.00 to me, also that the freon could not and would not be used after December 2019 per government orders. This meant that the money spent would be gone with no benefit. I then decided and talked to AHS and ask them to just give the money that the parts they would have to get would cost. Their reply was we will get the parts and you pay the excess. That did not make sense to me, I then explained again that this was a bad idea. My answer back was that are rules state if the contractor says it can be fixed, we do it. This makes no sense as this unit is over 13 years old and after 12/31/2019 the unit could not be fixed if freon had to be used. They just keep telling me that they could not do anything else no progress. It was over 90 degrees my Asma was to a point that my wife was threating to call the ambulance. We finally had to call and get easements on a new unit. All I ask was that AHS just give me the money it was going to pay the contractor to work on the old unit. They said no. I am out $75.00 for the service call and over $3000.00 for the cost of a new unit.

                    American Home Shield Corporation [AHS]billing

                    I started with AHS on 9/3/17, up until May 2019 everything was fine, I had to deal with horrible contractors and a lot of out of pocket but I dealt with it. In May 2019 your company billed me( auto pay) from my checking account 3 times 54.99. After weeks I finally got credit back for 2 of those payments. Then again in June you took 2 payments
                    At this time I stopped auto pay since it seemed to be a problem and I was never given credit for the second payment withdrawn from my checking account.I just figured it would go for July payment. I kept getting calls from telemarketers that said they were from billing but could never actually pull up my payment history and they kept telling me I owed over 160.00. I tried to ask where they could possibly think I owed anything but never got an answer or they would say they were sending it to accounting and I would receive another call a day later. I made my last payment on 8/1/19 and called to let your company know it would be my last that I would be changing companies since it was feeling like harrasment at this point with call after call of a bill that I have no idea what I was being charged for.Now I received a letter from a collection agency for 163.16. I have all my bank statements and payment history from your company and I don't owe you anything. You just lost a good customer over very bad customer service and wrongfully billing me for who knows what.I will be contacting better buisness bureau, and the credit agencies. You need to take a look at my account and fix this error. Thank You, Rosemary Quinonez

                      American Home Shieldsears kenmore elite refrigerator

                      I notified AHS on August 16, 2019 that my refrigerator was not working. AHS sent a company called Sunrise to Sunset to check it on August 27. the first repairman said orally that he could not repair it because it needed a compressor and someone else from his company needed to handle that. (No paper was given to me) About a week or so later when I finally heard from them, I was told that the compressor had to be ordered. It took two weeks for the compressor to come. No one ever called me to say anything, neither AHS nor Sunrise to Sunset. I called every few days. No one could give me any information. Another visit was made and I was told the compressor was installed, but it would not work because the compressor needed to be updated. About a week later, the owner of Sunrise and Sunset came and updated the compressor and promised me that it was working properly, but it was not. I tried to contact him the following day, but he would not answer his phone and AHS said my work order would be recalled. As of today, September 30, 2019, I have not heard anything from anybody. So I called a number that I hope is Headquarters . I hope I can get some HELP>
