[Resolved] Sears / warranty scam!

1 United States Review updated:

I purchased a ge washer from sears with a 5 year warranty. It broke 6 months later took the 3 weeks to repair. it then broke 7 weeks later, technician came out and said we must have abused the washer, it will cost me $2500 to fix it!!?? this when there is a 5 year warranty! Bottom line if you need a major repair they will just void the contract with some kind of bogus lie! Spent hrs on the phone, final judgment voided contract! sears salesman can't believe it, never in 16 years has he seen an abuse claim on a washer. Sears must be getting desperate to save money!

Will be contacting my attorney, there is no way they are getting away with screwing me over.

    Hi understand what you're going through. I got a a master protection plan for my TV. I told them if I could purchase this warranty since my TV had a PROBLEM. They told me yes I could and sold it to me. The technician came to my house 2 weeks later and told me that the TV was not fixable, I called Sears and they said that they would then replace it. I called 2 days later wondering when they would replace it and was told that they had canceled my warranty as they had no right to sell it to me in the first place because they aren't supposed to sell warranties on items with problems. I was never told of the cancellation and furthermore that's not my problem because I told them before hand that my TV had a problem and that's why I was purchasing the warranty, and since that's what I signed up for I should get my TV replaced. Well all they said is that they are sorry for the inconvenience. Are you kidding me!!! So I'm going to do everything I can to let others know that Sears screws over their customers!

    Sears is the absolute worst for customer service and satisfaction. We bought a washing machine from them which started leaking brownish transmission fluid after 2 months. They said it was under warranty, but the LABOR would cost husband is a master electrician and master plumber, licensed and bonded..he told sears to just send him the part since it was under warranty and he would put it on himself. They said that under no circumstances could they send him the warrantied part unless their service tech installed it for 275.00. My husband has probably repaired well in excess of 200 washing machines in his 30 years of business.
    I would NEVER purchase a Sears appliance, and tell all of our customers the same thing!!!!

    Hi there, our fridge(an expensive model) purchased in '2000 on our Sears card account, broke just before this Easter 2008.

    We called a technician from Sears, and he came out and told us that the freon(which keeps the heat out) had evaporated through a small hole somewhere, and that this particular problem was covered by warranty for 10 years. He left, and was going to file a report, and then we would hear from the company about replacing it etc.
    We waited until the end of the week, and after not hearing anything from them we contacted the company about the situation, and we were told that we would need to produce the "purchase order number" in order for something to be done, even though they had the purchase date of December 9, 2000, and even the delivery date of December 15, 2000.

    We are a military family and have moved since we purchased the fridge, and have such misplaced the original purchase order, and since we are unable to produce it, Sears will not honor the warranty for the freon of 10 years. My husband and I have been calling non-stop to different branches trying to locate the purchase number, or to trying to trace the number through the credit card, but have been unsuccessful, as the company is unable to pull-up the records because of the length of time. However, we as consumers are expected to keep a purchase order from 7+ years ago, but a big company like Sears is me this is asking alot of consumers if Sears is not required to!!

    So we made a last ditch attempt today and called Corporate Customer Service, and we were told that Sears would not be able to do anything about our situation unless we produced the original purchase order number. So after receiving no satisfaction, we are going to pay off our Sears card account and boycott Sears. We realize that we are only a drop in the pan for a huge corporation like Sears, but we also intend to tell others about what they have done, and let's face it word of mouth can be very powerful!!

    Sears is a scam. I also have a washer and from day one it danced around the floor. They came out time and time again to adjust the belt. I called and told them to keep the junk they sold me and then Sears sent out two repair men who were jerks. Attempted to tell me this is the way we wash our clothes. Then started to show me the "proper way to load a machine." I got so upset I told them funny may last washer had no problems with how it was loaded and no matter how you load this junk MAYTAG now made by WHIRLPOOL it dances and I have washed clothes for over 30 years and done more laundry than they could ever begin to and to take loading lessons from two jerks was not going to continue. Even after I proved to them loading it makes no difference they adjusted the belt and said nothing was wrong with my washer. Now a year later it still dances I have no warranty and it is worse than ever. So I call Sears and told them hey your machine you sold me still has the problem from day one from when I bought it could you please help and send someone out again. You can guess the reply. No not for free. JERKS!!! SO I have a pile of junk I wash with and can't afford another. I think we should all take our junk appliances to the local Sears and drop it on the steps of Sears with junk wrote all over it and SOLD BY SEARS! Sears can't stay open with this way of doing things. Between bad credit card ways and repair ways everyone is finding out STAY AWAY FROM SEARS!!!

    I see why Sears is in trouble. REPEAT CUSTOMERS are what keeps any business going strong. In 1996 we made the mistake of buying furniture and a fridge from them. They delivered my sofa with a BIG RIP in the back. Then I had to wait for the guy to come to my house to fix it. Set up appointment for the first day, had to take off work. Waited all day, no call, no nothing. Called them and oh, service man had an emergency and couldn't come. A simple phone call would have been nice. Had to take off work a second day for them to fix it. Complained about missing TWO days of work for THEIR mistake and was just given the "sorry ". Oh and the fridge, had it just one and a half years before the ice maker broke. DO NOT BUY ANY BIG ITEMS FROM SEARS!!!

    We bought a Sears Kenmore side by side refridgerator with the filtered water & ice a little over two years ago. That feature is one of the main reasons we purchased a new fridge. We live in an area that has high minerals so without a filter the ice-maker eventually stops working. We had this fridge about two years when first it stopped dispensing water and next ice right before Thanksgiving 08. We loved this refridgerator because we now had ice! Lucky for us we had renewed the service contract. When the repair tech came to fix it, he told us it was going to require an entire new door because a small platic part that cost around $4.00 had broken inside the mechanism but the cost of the replacement door would be over $800.00 not including all which was under warranty. We originally paid abt $1300.00 for it new. So he ordered us a replacement door. Several days later we get a phone call asking had the door arrived to which my husband said 'no, why?' and then the Sears rep said 'well we don't know if we are going to be able to find you a replacement door but we are still looking, it could take at least six weeks if we can find one." The thing is, the color of the fridge (bisque) is being discontinued so that makes it harder to find the door. This is just the start of a long story that I'm going to try and condense to the best of my ability while retaining what happened. This all started in November 2008. Sears never could assure us that they were going to be able to find us a door but that we could get another of the same fridge. Now think, why would we want the same model that requires a whole door for a simple little plastic part that is prone to break? Our former fridge that we replaced with the side by side was 17 years old and was still working when we got rid of it and it did for another two years. My husband argued this point with Sears for weeks finally convincing them that we were NOT going to take the same fridge with a defective design and that we wanted something different instead. Finally, they did agree to it, so another one was ordered in December of 2008 but we would not be able to get it until January 2009. My husband spent numerous hours on the phone with Sears and had to speak with people in several different departments in order to solve this disaster. They told him they would transfere the renewed service agreement to the new fridge and charged it to our Sears credit card which we had not even authorized once the prior one expired so that took two months to correct trying to get it posted to our Discover. Sears credit card rep said the card did not have to be authorized as long as the account was open. The nightmare never seems to end. My husband was under the impression that the Sears charged had been removed and placed on the Discover card but yesterday we got another billing from Sears with an additional late fee. Also another chapter of this story is that after we finally got the replacement fridge, a Whirlpool, the door for the broken fridge arrives via Fed-ex which just dropped it off onto our front porch never ringing the doorbell. We called Sears to inform them that we were now in possession of the door. Somehow we learn that we now have two service plans on two fridges neither of which we own since one belonged to the broken one and the other policy to another one we did not own. So last night my husband spent another two hours on the phone trying to correct the billing problem, the service agreement and the $800. door that is still sitting on our front porch awaiting pick-up 3 wks later. Well now it seems Sears voided the warranty of the brand new Whirlpool cause we didn't pay for it since it was a traded replacement for the broken model. I don't know how they can legally do that since this is a new model out-of-the-box but they said they did so we were forced to buy another service agreement so our brand new Whirlpool would have a warranty. Now I hear that Sears may be closing soon. I live in a small rural town. We have to travel over 60 miles to get to a Sears department store and 30 miles to a catalog store. We have dealth with Sears for 30+ years. It use to be that they back their products and treated customers with respect but this is no longer the case. My husband handled all the phone conversation with Sears and he was only treated with respect by a few Sears employess but many were rude and nasty. I like dealing with Sears because of their repair service but now I'm beginning to wonder if it is worth it anymore.

    My son purchased a Kenmore freezer from Sears. The sides of the freezer gets really hot at times and has scorched my floor where it is setting. Callled an had a technician look at it and he said it was natural for the sides to get hot. I have had a service technician out here five times. I also talked to the new manager of the store it was purchased and he said it was not natural for he was a technician. I have missed two days of work waiting for the tech to come and was called late in the day to say that the technician was not coming. I was told after five complaintes that the freezer would be replaced, but that did not happen. Was offered a hundred off of a four hundred dollar fan, that means that I would be paying the same price for the fan as what the freezer cost. The warrenty is not worth the paper it is written on. Sears does not stand behind their products. Mary Balser 3 years ago.

    We bought 2 Kenmore elite units from Sears, a matching freezer and fridge. After 4 years the compressors on both failed, the freezer went first and then the fridge. 4 years on a freezer or fridge is ridiculous, normal use expectancy on items like these is 10 to 15 years. Both units had a "Full 5 year warranty on sealed cooling units", this was declared very visibly on page 3 of the information packets. However Sears won't honor their warranty, they wanted us to pay for the repairs, and similar to another comment they wanted us to buy additional warranty protection on our already defective unit. Totally ridiculous!! We have been lifetime Sears/Kenmore users, the Sears of today is not the Sears of the past. I remember when they actually honored warranties without arguing, one phone call and quite often a repairman would be out within hours. Bottom line is we'll NEVER buy anything from Sears again, we're boycotting them. We had to throw out the defective units as they weren't worth repairing, we purchased a nice Whirlpool Gold refrigerator/freezer from a competitor that actually stands behind their sold products. I recommend that anyone considering buying from Sears go elsewhere, they have all the signs of a company in decline.

    Well don't ever buy a central heat and air unit from Sears. I chose Sears thinking that "SEARS" techs were going to do the install and it would be done through a reputable company that I could go back to if there were problems. I was mistaken. Instead they sent a contracting crew from 4hrs away. In the first hour they were there they cut the return vent to large for the vent they brought, dropped a carpet blower through the roof, marked up my walls were they were going to cut with a sharpie then cut elsewhere. By the time they were done, they installed the drain from the unit in the ceiling incorrectly so water filled the pan, and installed the emergency shut-off float wrong so the pan over-flowed ruining a portion of the ceiling. They completely tore up the walls that they had to go through and half of the vents were uneven to the walls. It took a confrontation on the phone to get the project manager out to see the problems. Finally he saw what had happened and made them return to fix it. I promise it wasn't next day service. This was in 06. In August it will be 3 years old. Since then I had to replace the thermostat (wouldn't cover it under warranty) and somthing in the control board in the main unit messed up. ( They didn't want to warranty that last year either, but the service tech talked them into it...). Now the coolant is leaking and they want $100.00 to send out a tech to fix it claiming no labor warranty remains. I tried to find who actually manuf. the unit (as it is a KENMORE) and was given the number to a company that doesn't have anything to do with Kenmore. No one in customer service can do anything but ask you for you telephone number and verify your address. That is if you can make your way through the automated operating system which seems to take you through the galaxy and back. I don't mind pushing a number to get me to the right department, but spending 15 mins through automated operating system is asking a bit much. Then once you get to talk to someone, they get your information and say "please hold" only to disconnect you. SEARS SUCKS. NO Satisfaction. Maybe they should stop building houses in a week and start taking care of customers.

    Sears won't honor their warranty on my water heater. I purchased it four years ago and it came with a 12 year warranty on parts. Two years ago the Thermo coupler broke. The guy didn't come for a week and when he did, told me that he was replacing them on all their units. Seems their cheap china parts all broke. Same damn thing broke again. And again, they can't come out for a week. It's freaking cold now. My local plumbing/heating guy came out and told me he would put the part on but Sears won't sell it to him. They won't sell it to me either and honor my warranty. If if came with a warranty, what's the problem with them? Seems a little illegal, don't you think?

    I agree with all the complaints and add one million to them. Our appliances are covered by Sears warranties but God forbid if one of the appliances stops working. Sears tries everything they can not to replace with a new product. They will tell you that a certain part is needed and when it doesn't arrive, it's always on back order and they are trying to locate one from another vendor. LIES LIES LIES--When the part finally arrives and is installed, the appliance stops working again and they are forced to replace with a new product. They even have the nerve to offer you a measly 10.00 gift card after they get tired of hearing complaints to get you off the phone. Come on now Sears--It looks like you will be the next company that will be closing.

    I am a senior citizen with Diabetes, heart condition. I cannot get service repair for my Upright Bissell vacuum Cleaner.
    Model 2143950; Serial 06297011755. Bought this machine at Sears store at 1900 W. Lawrence Avenue in Chicago in 2007. Purchased Master Protection Agreement for this item every year.Certificate # 0866571507 00030, expiration date: 03/19/2011.Product is faulty was under repair during 9/08. Then September 2010. vacuum wouldn't suction and handle at the back was loose. Brought for repair to 1900 West Lawrence Sears, Chicago store on 9/3/2010, the vacuum cleaner was shipped for repair to Sears Repair center at 2063 George Street, Melrose, IL 60160. Was shipped back to Sears at 1900 W. Lawrence, Chicago on 9/14/2010. Picked it up the same evening. 9/15/10 vacuumed my 2-bedroom apartment, and then tried to empty dirt canister, which couldn't be open because gray funnel (inner Cyclone) part of in the upper track collapsed and blocked dirt canister from opening. On 9/16/10, brought machine back to Sears at 1900 W. Lawrence, spoke to a Manager, Dean Prjansky. He somehow was able to release dirt canister, and when he did, Grey Funnel (inner Cyclone), not sure of the name of the part, fall off. The louvers located in the upper portion of of inner cyclone were loose, sliding them straight down on the top of the inner cyclone couldn't be possible because they were not holding.So, 9/16/10, vacuum Cleaner was sent for a second time this year, 2010 for repair at the Sears Repair shop from 1900 W. Lawrence Chicago to 2063 George Street, Melrose Park Repair center. I received call on 9/24/2010 from Sears at 1900 W. Lawrence in Chicago that according to Sears Repair center at Melrose park, IL that I have abused or misused vacuum Cleaner that they found "Dry Wall" particles inside of it?? The status of my Vacuum Cleaner is "Waiting for Approval", so they can charge me $208.00 to repair it, while disregarding my Master protection Agreement. To your attention please-This is OUTRAGEOUS LIE! I use " Nature's Choice Carpet and Room Deodorizer powder, which, I gently sprinkle in moderate portion on carpet, wait 15 minutes, and then vacuum. So, the particles they found was not a dry wall but a carpet deodorizer powder. I also use Arm and hammer brand, both are legitimate products designed to make carpet fresh. Vacuum cleaner should not be breaking because of that, What does the gray funnel collapse has to do with carpet deodorizing powder? I have 2-bedroom apartment, and I vacuum once, sometimes, twice per week. Your Repair shop representatives are taking advantage of ill Senior Citizens who live on a fixed income and are alone. They don't want to do their job, so they come up with outrageous excuses just to sack up the last money person got on Social Security fixed income.
    Please note that I asked to get new machine or get gift certificate and I was told that it is up to Sears repair shop to determine what is the right course of action. They gave me 2 phone numbers, I keep calling to Sears Repair shop, Melrose, IL, and I get busy signal. besides, it is a long distance from call, I cannot afford calling there. (708) 216-3076, and (708) 216-3033
    I also called to sears corporate to allege complaints, all befallen on a deaf ear. They say they got my complain, but nothing is happening.

    Everyone needs to read the fine print, like I did, and realize that if you decide that you don't need the protection agreement within one year of it's purchase, you can get the money you spent on it refunded.

    Sorry to break this news to people, but Sears is one of the best retailers in the country, as far as customer service is concerned. Nobody else offers a warranty that will cover your product indefinately, and then renfund your money within the year if you're not satisfied. That's even if you get it repaired during that time.

    Only Sears can give it's customers that kind or customer service and peace of mind.

    DO NOT BUY ELECTRONIC WARRANTIES FROM SEARS... VERY ANGRY CUSTOMER... In 2008 my mother-in-law went with me to pusrchase a tv. The salesman told me that the warranty covered evertything INCLUDING ACCIDENTS. So being my husband and I had 1 year old twins, I called him to see if we should purchase the 5 year warranty instead of the 3 even though it was more money it was safer with the kids. So being that I trusted the associate. I purshed the 5 year warranty for our 40 inch sony. Well now that our tv is broken from an accident and it is almost as much as the tv. I am getting told I shoud of read the warranty contract and cancelled it. I guess basically it is ok that there sales people can lie to make there comissons but not ok for the customer to get statifaction when something happens. well they have just lost alot of customers that spend alot of money there because they have no idea how to make mistakes from there assicoates right... so be very careful of sneaky sears ways... not only that my friend paid a lot of money in intrest because they go by there billing date not the date of purchase... BECAREFUL. I can't believe that the still have people shop there...

    Purchased a new top of the line Maytag double oven at Sears in Canton, Ohio. Purchased the extended warranty. Oven smells of gas and the racks fall through. Sears will not replace even though I have the warranty. i have spend hours and hours AND HOURS on the phone with the warranty department only to be given the run around consistently. I do not know what to do next, the stove is only 8 months old, but I told SEARS shortly after it was delivered that it leaked gas, was told Sears would not do anything until after 30 days. It turns out that after 30 days SEARS will not return the item and you have to deal with the warranty department which will give you the run around, transfer you to department after department, will not return phone calls, I am at my wits end. I paid over $1, 700.00 for this stove and I have been cheated like I have never been cheated in my entire life. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM SEARS, DO NOT PURCHASE THE WARRANTY--IT IS A FRAUD. SEARS IS CORRUPT. SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH SEARS. I AM TOTALLY AGHAST AT THIS SITUATION. i WAS TOLD A MANAGER WOULD CALL ME BACK SUNDAY AND THEY NEVER DID. A REPAIRMAN WAS HERE FRIDAY AND SAID THE STOVE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED and that this is the sixth Maytag stove of this type he has been out to repair with the same complaint AND SEARS DENIES THE REPAIRMAN'S FINDINGS. HELP ME PLEASE. WHY IS SEARS CHEATING THEIR LONG TIME CUSTOMERS? WHAT IS GOING ON HERE.

    I bought carpet and wilsonart flooring in 2000. when they pulled up my dinning room carpet, there was a half inch difference with the kitchen, and since they had miscalculated sears had to put additional flooring down to make it level with the kitchen. the installers used pergo glue and not wilsonart. the carpet had a dye shift down the middle. 5 months later they had to replace my carpet and kitchen flooring.I had purchased the Sears Premium heavy padding for under the carpet and I heard one of the installers comment to the other installer why I was replacing my old pad for "this". I didn't give it much thought until later. My wilsonart flooring started to curl up on the edges and sears replaced it. the new carpet they brought was not even sears carpet but some Brillo pad junk that was terrible. The manager came out and agreed that the 2ND carpet was not sears, so they came out a 3rd time to replace carpet. I had to sign off on the new carpet before they installed. Now in 2009 there was a seam in the carpet that needed to be re-glued, sears said that they would pay for the cost of repair, but I would have to sign with witnesses, to cancel my "lifetime" warranty. I did not fix the 6 inch unglued section yet. The premium pad that was to last 20 or more years is hard as a brick completely disintegrated. when I called and asked about the premium padding, the service person said they no longer had information about the specifics on the premium padding sold back then. They replaced my carpet 2 times, and my wilsonart 1 time, I am glad that they didn't make any money on my sale. However, I think to compensate for their cost for the dinning room floor they switched the premium padding with the lowest grade padding. The parts of my house that has 18yr old carpet has more padding then my 12 year carpet. I never shop at Sears now.
