Kenmore Fridge / sears kenmore fridge had delivery problems

United States Review updated:

I recently purchased, for Company use, a Sears Kenmore fridge from the Sears Richmond Hill Furniture and Appliance Store. Delivery was scheduled for the following Tuesday between 7am-noon. At the time of purchase I specified and paid $25.00 extra to have the handles placed for a right side door opening. Unfortunately neither happened. The delivery crew left a mumbled message which I could not decipher on my voice mail, and shortly thereafter a Sears representative called to reschedule as, I was advised, noone was there to accept the delivery, this is a business address and I along with 30 others are in the office all day.

It was rescheduled for Thursday between noon and 6pm, and did arrive at 4pm, although I now have to call customer service and have someone come in and reverse the handles. This whole procedure was a royal pain. Sears pay more attention to your employees, and I would suggest your outsourced delivery company B & N Delivery Service do the same.

Approx. 3 weeks ago the door locked on the Kenmore range that was purchased in March of 2011 and under warranty. I contacted my local store where I bought the range and they tryed to get a repairman out quickly but they were told it would be Dec.5 before a service tech could come out. It was the week of Thanksgiving and my family was looking forward to our traditional dinner. This didn’t happen and we had to change our plans. Dec. 5 has come and gone and we are now scheduled for Dec 12. I have purchased many appliances from Sears in the past but do not intend to do so in the future.

This type service is unacceptable and especially on a product that is still under warranty. My dissatisfaction is not with my local store. They did what they could.

    Kenmore Fridge - Repair service
    3701 E National Road
    United States

    I bought a fridge 4 years ago, recently the fridge was not staying cool. A Sears repair man was to come out (he didn't even get out of his truck because the contractor was here to let him in not the homeowner). Had to reschedule. The second appointment he was over three hours late. In the process of attempting to fix the fridge he broke two parts in the freezer and my electrical outlet cover (only one part he offered to repair at no charge). He then told me it was fixed and it cost me $112.50. Two days later the fridge was still not cold and food spoiled again. Sears sent another repair man out. This gentleman also claimed he fixed it. Now almost a week later the fridge is still not cold at all. Called Sears to voice my complaint and request my money back for the repairs. I got hung up on the first time and after a long wait the second time only to be told they couldn't refund my money and would not transfer me to a supervisor.

    Kenmore Fridge - broken for the seventh time
    United States

    I purchased a Kenmore refrigerator from Sears in 2011, it has not been plugged in for 1 year and i am on my seventh breakdown!!! The service people either do not show up or the parts do not arrive!!! My door even broke off, the inside liner fell down, the fan was replaced three times, last time they said it was a control for the cooling and heating unit, guess not because its broke again. The best part is that the parts were to arrive today, they never showed up, imagine that? Oh. I called and they said the parts just shipped but they have no tracking number, hummm, how can that be ?They said they will have to get back to me tomorrow. I would guess my fridge has been down for a total of at least 4-5 months in total due to the fact that they never send service or call back for days or parts dont arrive. They also said they would replace the unit but then called back and said they need to try to fix it one more time.That is what they said last time, they even gave me the info for the replacement fridge. Drove all the way to Sears to pick out a new one for nothing, not to mention all the food .i threw away (hundreds of dollars worth every time it broke). I will NEVER buy another thing from Sears!!!
