I bought a microwave oven at Kmart 6 months ago, it just stopped working. I got out the book, spent an hour on the phone with Sears/Kmart customer service, got transferred 3 times, and ultimately ended up with "D. J." from Kmart Customer Service. I told him the microwave was 6 months old and I had the box. I told him I did not have the receipt, I said if I take it back to Kmart, will they exchange it for me? He said yes, just take it back and they will exchange it. My car is a long walk from where I live, I lug this huge box back to my car, up to Kmart (Streetsboro, OH) and in to the store, for them to just tell me sorry, we have a 90-day return policy. Then, why after I spent an hour on the phone would the customer service guy tell me to take it there? I never would of gone through all that trouble otherwise! The store manager; Chris Flood, was quite a little twerp. Went back home called customer service and all I got was I don't know why he told you that, but you'll have to call the manufacturer (Kenmore, I don't recommend them) and get it serviced! It supposedly had a 1-year warranty when I bought it I canÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t believe they wonÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t exchange it Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ Microwaves should last longer than 6 months! I donÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t want to know where I am going to have to drag this thing next and how long it will take. I am so pissed! I use it everyday.
Do yourselves a favor people; shop Wal-mart, the customer service is much better. No wonder Kmart was going under until Sears bought them, now I hope they still do.
