Sears Elite Refrigerator / faulty refrigerator & washer
Purchased new home with Kenmore Elite refrigerator model number 106-[protected] in Sept 01. Every appliance in our home came from Sears. We have had nothing but problems since them. A condenser motor went totally out after about 6 - 12 mos of leaking on the kitchen floor. It could not be determined that was the problem until it went out totally. This resulted in ruining a $500 rug in the kitchen. The door handle broke off when the repairman came in and ask what the problem was. We have since replaced 2 more door handles.
The ice maker flap will not close completely letting air into the basket and causing the ice to melt in it which caused a problem and what is caught int he shoot melt into the tray on front door. The ice maker will dispense fairly slow until you get the glass almost full - then it dumps 4-5 cubes at once- guess where they go? One the floor. It is almost like this thing is possessed.
We also purchased a washer and dryer from Sears. The washer motor went out 13 months after delivery. Of course, warranty was for 12 months!
We have owned many, many Sears appliances in the past, I would say for 35 yrs. I cannot begin to tell you how unhappy I am with Sears now. I will NEVER buy a Sears appliance again!
We have called to try to talk to a factory rep. Instead we are told that we should have bought the extended warranty on refrigerator. When you pay $1, 800 at builders cost for a product you should not have to pay extra to make sure it works. Our alternative now is to pay $65 to have a technician come out to look at their defective product!!!
