We bought a Sears Craftsman Dual Stage Snowblower from sears in Nov. 29/03 we paid 1799.99 + tax totalling...
To whom this may concern
I'm Jim Turner and i purchased a craftsman snow thrower back in 2007 from sears hardware located on Dorothy ln in Dayton Ohio, since i've had this thrower it has been back to the repair center this will be the fourth time for the same problem throwing oil wont stay running.
I used it twice this season on my g-friends and a friends moms concrete driveways, it throw oil all over these two driveways i didn't notice that is was leaking and throwing fluid until after the fact, i don't know how i'm going to get the oil out of these two driveways the driveways are not that old.
All i'm asking is for someone on a corprate level to please help me with this problem they won't replace the thrower they just want to send it out for repair again, i have only ever used craftsman products and am a long time customer of the sears stores.
The manager at the store was very helpful but her hands are tied, can someone please help me with this problem i don't feel comfortable using the same thrower anymore, i would like for it to be replaced and help with cleaning the two driveways. Please help me.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. Jim Turner p.s. i don't have pictures the only proof i would have would be the repair centers records.
Hello, I have a Craftsman 10" Table Saw model number 137.248830. This saw cost me about $180. I bought it to...
I purchased a Craftsman Model#[protected] Serial# 754712521268C approx. 2 years ago. It worked for 1/2 the first winter. Mechanically it was fine. The outside of this snowblower is made of hard plastic and the scapper blade has broken twice which requires the entire housing that incases the motor to be replaced. Sears repair says they have had this problem on lots of these snowblowers but there has been no recall issued so they want to charge $232.00 each time it breaks. I have paid for this to be fixed twice so I could have bought a new snow blower already. This is not acceptable. This is a defective product and I want a new all steel unit or my$ 400.00 back. I will keep after Sears management untill they do something to make this right. I am in sales and this kind of thing is what I do om a daley basis. I am going to bring my defective snowblower back to Sears Oakbrook and tell everyone in the store not to buy thier defective crap. It will be on full display so everyone can see just what Sears is trying to get away with. I have purchased quite a few appliances from Sears over the years and now that all comes to an end because of the crappy service I have recieved.
I broke a craftsman "professional" magnetic screw guide. It costs all of about 6 dollars brand new. I tried to return it under the Craftsman lifetime unlimited hand tool warranty. Sears hardware tried telling me it is not a hand tool??? Well it certainly is not a power tool! Left in disgust went to another Sears. Was told oh that is a high impact item so that has no warranty??? That was the whole reason I went to Craftsman in the first place and didnt spend more on a Dewalt was for the warranty! Drive to Sears number 3 and was told "Craftsman lifetime warranty is no longer honored like it was before. Since KMart has bought them out they have become really cheap." So basically from what I get is really Craftsamn is KMart now? Wow wasnt there a reason they went bankrupt??? Anybody want to buy a huge load of Craftsman tools? They have a lifetime warranty of convenience! So mad I ever bought ANY of their tools now. Im sure I will be back when I try to replace my broken craftsman shovel.
We had a contract to complete our wood fence that they did not honor. Craftsman Fence and Deck Dallas took...
On 10-13-09 my boyfriend and I went to the Westgate Mall in Amarillo, TX to Sears in order to purchase a brand new 18 in gas powered Craftsman chainsaw. I did just that, verify salescheck # [protected]. We traveled the 20 miles home only to find that the new saw leaked oil bar oil like a sieve and would not remain running. We made the 20 mile trip back to town to exchange the saw, a disappointing and frustrating incident for the time wasted and the gas used in making a 40 mile round trip. We went to exchange the saw BUT I also wanted a replacement for the $4.99 can of premix fuel we had put into the defective chainsaw...apparently there was a problem with that since the cashier said an opened item could not be exchanged or replaced...the ITEM was open because it was IN the product we had to bring back. The cashier attempted twice to get a manager to make an appearance in order to ok this procedure...the manager never showed up. The cashier did an exchange on the saw verify salescheck #[protected] and also a replacement for the premix gas verify salescheck #[protected]. As you might guess, I was not about to drive 20 miles to the boyfriends house only to find a problem with THIS saw so we went to your automotive garage where the gentlemen working there were EXTREMELY nice and helpful...apparently they understand customer service? Anyhow, once again the saw leaked oil everywhere and not only did it not remain running well but TWICE the chain actually came off the bar...if you have ANY clue as to how chainsaws work, you will realize this is a safety issue? Being totally disgusted with Craftsman at this point, we took the saw back and got a cancellation on my credit card for the purchase of the saw, verify salescheck # [protected]. I did not even ATTEMPT to retrieve the $4.99 for the can of premix fuel in the SECOND saw since it took an act of Congress to get the first one replaced. I filled out the feedback form, and not in a positive way which was on one of the receipts and got a call from someone saying he was a manager at the Amarillo store, although not the department (Home and Garden) where this incident occured. He called me on 10-17-09 and I told him what I am writing you. He apologized but that was about it. Being a "follow-up" kind of gal, I went back to Sears last week, 10-19 or 10-20 to see what, if anything had happened. There were two big signs on the doors to the bays of the automotive shop warning non-employees not to enter. Apparently the chat with the manager got those automotive employees in trouble for trying to assist me? We went to the gentleman who had sold us the original saw and my boyfriend asked him, "I suppose you heard about the problems with the chainsaw we bought here last week"? and the cashier looked perplexed and had not heard a word. I am assuming no investigation or follow up was done there either? Seeing as someone, myself or my boyfriend, could have been seriously injured, and for sure we were not thrilled with the product, I was just expecting a little more other than chastizing the few employees who attempted to help us.
I received a Stainless Tool Box brand new from Sears on July 3, 2017. I sent an email about this issue the same day and have not heard back fron Sears. On the Craftsman website it says that they will respond in 24 hours. It's been almost 1 month with no response.
There are many issues with the tool box I received.
Bad Quality Control.
1. There is a ding on top of the box.
2. The Craftsman logo was broken on the left side. It was hanging.
3. There is a noticeable spot weld showing on the right side towards the bottom.
4. There is a big dent above the handle on the right side top left.
5. The sticker on the front left is the wrong sticker. It should say " Ball Bearing" not Ball Bearing, Grip Latch". This is not the "Grip Latch" model.
This should have been sold as a "seconds" or "slighty damaged". I paid for a new tool box. This looks like a "C Conditon Model".
It took me about 26 days to receive this tool box. I do not want to return this box. It would be to much of a hassle to return the box. This item does show out of stock on the website. I do not want to wait another 26 days plus how ever long it will take to receive another tool box.
Year befor last I purched their elect trimmer and the warranty. The trimmer would not hold a charge, so I took it back the next summer and was told they were having lots of problems with them...so they exchanged it, but the warranty would be used to get a New One! This summer got it out(haven't used it but about a dozen times altogether), charged it up and it was dead in 15 minutes! So I thought it was in need of a longer over night and next day charge...wrong! Charge lasted maybe 15 minutes and it just gave up. I called the store 9 times before I got "The Store Manager" who assured me he'd call me back in 30 minutes. That was over 3 hours ago and no call! All they have to do is pull up my information and check it to see which one I have etc. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I WILL NOT BE BUYING ANOTHER FROM THEM~~! They have gone to a "fully" automated system and it's like pulling hen's teeth to talk to a person. I have never been so frustrated...Sears has really been a disappointment the past few years with purchasing their Craftsman items. And the Service is NO longer there. Customer Service is a thing in the past for these guys! ...STILL WAITING FOR A CALL~
I bought a 22 inch Craftsman Pushmower with a Briggs & Stratton 5.5 horse motor. I have had it in the shop...
I have had my lawnmower in the repair store for three weeks. I call after 1 week and the store replied that the tech was reviewing. The repair store then said it has a crack crank shaft, I told them a wanted to make sure they are goning to repair the wire that broke off, and that is why the mower was in there and I will pay for the other repairs. No tech call me back. I called the store another week and they said the mower was not in the store. I spook with karen in the port jeff store and she said the trucks come in on tues and thurs and said my mower was not in the store. I spoke with john 5 days later he said he had call, on thursday that my mower was done. I did not receive a call on thurs from john and I had been on the phone with karen on thurs and she informed me that my mower was not in the store, but if I wanted to go pick it up in melville, I can do that. I am a very unsatistfied customer, I will no longer ever shop in sears and I will also make sure I tell every one I know of the very bad treatment I received as a customer.
A few weeks ago, my new father-in-law graciously gave me his Craftsman 6.75 Lawn mower to help manage my new lawn. The mower was shed-kept, and stored 2 seasons ago. While it looked to be in great condition, and he assured me it would fire up right away, it would not initially start for me so I took it into the Sears repair facility in Springfield. I was informed they were running a “special” on tune-ups ($40.00). I explained that it likely needed some cleaning and a spark plug etc., and asked if they would install a new blade as well.
I received a call a week later stating the estimate was $135.00 and it would be ready for pick-up on or before the 12th. A few days later I received a second message stating the estimate was now $385.00 – for a lawnmower that costs $369.00 right off the show-room floor!(?)
I declined the estimate, and being a life-long devotee to Craftsman equipment and tools, bought a new craftsman 6.75 mower from the local Sears. I picked up the ‘un-repairable’ mower and brought it home. I’m new to my neighborhood, but I noticed that my next-door neighbor seemed to be working on mowers or weed-eaters often. I called him over and explained that the mower was likely shot, but gave it to him to use for parts and went about cutting my grass with my new mower. 15 minutes later, my neighbor rolls my “un-repairable” mower back over and it’s running like a top. He explains that the fuel line was simply clogged and demonstrates how it starts on the first pull every time. He insisted I take the lawn mower back and would not accept compensation for the effort.
Now, all of my colleagues at work strongly suggested that I register a complaint with Sears regarding this matter. I balked at this suggestion and decided I would store the new mower and use the old one. LAST EVENING, WHILE CUTTING MY FRONT LAWN, THE NEW BLADE (THE ONLY PORTION OF MY ORIGINAL REQUEST FOR SERVICE PERFORMED BY SEARS) FLEW OFF THE MOWER AND WAS LEFT EXTENDING APPROXIMATELY 8 INCHES OUT OF THE BACK OF THE MOWER!
Having just purchased our first home, it’s unfortunate to think of how much patronage, business, equipment and tool purchases Sears and Craftsman will now forfeit as a result of this COMPLETELY FAILED CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE!
The complaint has been investigated and resolved to the customer's satisfaction.
Chain saw was bought for christmas present and used one day and quit working, looked in manual then removed...

Below is a reply to my complaint I emailed to customer service. I was referred back to the source that was unable to help me originally. It made me wonder if the guy even read my email. What has happened to customer service??

Comments: To Whom It May Concern,
I recently purchased replacement parts for my Craftsman Lawn Tractor
Order # here. I made the order over the phone and spoke with an
associate. The parts I ordered were replacement part I thought I had
lost or may have been removed during a warranty repair. At any rate
after making the order I was out cleaning my shed and found the missing
part. I immediately called back to cancel the order but no one could
help me. I can understand in this day of technology how easily they
could enter my info on a pc and order it but could not cancel it in the
same day. I've cancelled orders with less established businesses with no
problems whatsoever. I realize if I had received the order and wanted to
return it the cost of shipping etc. but I would think if I called back
the same day it would be possible to cancel it. So now I have $63.00
worth of brand new parts in the box that have been shipped to me with
the only option being returning one $20.00 item (only item returnable)
and pay the shipping say $10.00 and recoup $10.00 of my $62.00. Needless
to say I am not a satisfied customer.
I have a set of stack-able Quiet Glide Craftsman Toolboxes. I had them for about a year and really only put them through light use. They sit in my utility room and store all my tools. Well the other day I go to turn the key on the largest box and the lock assembly fell apart. The part the key inserts into came right off the box, and the rest fell inside the box. Now all my tools are locked inside the box with no way of opening it.
The store first said to bring the whole box in. Do you know how heavy that thing is full of tools? Then they say there is no warranty on the unit. Now I'm stuck trying to figure out how to get my tools out without completely destroying the box. Once I do that, I doubt I will be able to repair the lock.
Great stuff from a brand that is supposed to mean "quality" huh?
In august 2007 we purchased a craftsman 4 ton low profile service jack.In march 08 we returned the jack...
On October 4, 2007 I purchased a Craftsman Lawnmower from Sears/Oxmoor Center. This was a returned and...
On April 13th, I dropped off my Craftsman model weedeater to have the trigger replaced. It took me almost 10 minutes before anyone even came over to help me, which should have been my first sign to run out the door. Once someone finally came to help me I told them what was wrong with the weedeater and the work I wanted done. They could not find my name in the system until they looked me up at an old address (from 3 years ago) and did not update my new information. I was told I would have to pay a $30 service charge because the unit was no longer under warranty but that the $30 would be applied to any services. I asked the associate if he knew how much it would cost to replace the trigger and he told me they had no way of knowing but that I could set a limit on how much the service would cost so they couldn't do work without my authorization. I told him I wanted a $30 limit since I had already paid $30. He again said they would call me to get authorization and I asked him to make sure they call my new number so he put a note in the system. He told me the weedeater would be ready on 4/28/08 and they would call me when it was ready to pick up.
4/28/08 came by and I heard nothing from Sears. I called the Customer service number to check on the status of the repair and an Indian woman who I could barely understand could not find my information in the system. I finally gave her my phone number from 3 years and she was able to pull it up but she said it was still not in and could give me no explanation why.
On 5/1/08 I had to go to the Mall for another reason so I stopped into the store and asked about the status of my repair. The associate told me that it was still being worked on and would not be ready until 5/4/08. I again verified that they had my correct phone number in the system and talked to the manager to see if they could update the info since the lady on the phone had been unable to find me in the system. She said there was no way they could do that while the work order was open but assured me that they would call me at my current number and explained the weedeater was out because they had had to order the trigger. She told me it looked like it would be back to the store on 5/4/08 and gave me the number of the store to call to speak to someone who could tell me the status of my weedeater.
I still had not heard from Sears by 5/6/08 so I called the store to see if it was back. They associate who answered the phone said it was there and had been there since Sunday. I asked her why I had not been called and she said she didn't know. I told her I would be in that evening to pick it up.
When I arrived at the store an associate came out and told me I had a balance to pay before I could get my weedeater. I asked him how much and he told me $60!!! I asked him how it could be so much, it was a broken trigger that should have cost, max, $40. I expressed my frustration that I had NEVER been called to authorize them to fix the weedeater at that price. He apologized and said he wasn't sure if they could do anything. My boyfriend and I told him we wanted to speak to the manager and he said he would get her. We waited for about 5 minutes and the associate came back and said the manager had told him that we had no choice, we could either pay the $60 and get our weedeater back or be out our $30 deposit and they would keep it. I again said I wanted to speak to the Manager as both choices were unacceptable and he said he would have her come over. When she came over we asked if she had remembered us from last time and she said she did. We explained how poor our customer service had been throughout the service period and the fact that noone had called us to authroize the repairs. All she would say is that we had the two above choices and there was nothing we could do about it. She kept telling us that either way we were out the $30, which we said we understood, but I kept trying to explain to her that I didn't think I should have to pay the $60 since it had not been authorized by me. She kept interrupting and saying either she couldn't do anything about it or that either way we were out the $30. I explained to her that I could get a brand new weedeater for $90, which is the same price as what I would be paying for my old one for the so-called service. I asked what had cost so much and she would not explain the charges, she would only say that the service was $60/hour. My boyfriend asked her if that was the standard rate and she said it was. I asked why I had not been told that when I had dropped it off, as I had asked the associate, and she said she didn't know why. I told her I was extremely unhappy and that I would never be a customer at sears again. She shrugged her shoulders at me! I asked for phone numbers of her manager so i could talk to them and she gave me a number so i could complain to the service but would not give me any numbers for Sears. My boyfriend suggested to her as a fellow retail employee that she should have her employees tell people the rates, especially when the know them, if they wanted to avoid these kinds of problems. She looked at him like he had a horn growing out of his head, said she there was nothing else she could do, and started to walk away. My boyfriend asked her if she would wait a minute so we could decide if we were going to pay the $60 or get a new one. She said she would and walked into the office.
After we walked over and looked at the weedeater's (and verifying that, in, fact, a new one does cost $90) I told him I had been insulted, by both the process and the manager, that I was not giving Sears one more cent of mine again. He agreed and we went over to let the manager know that we would not be taking the weedeater back but she would not come out of the office (we waited for another 5 minutes). We were so disgusted at that point that we left.

Since Oct the tech has rebuilt this blower 3 Times Oct Feb and again in March. Feb it ran for 20 Minutes March we had it a whole 5 minutes. Tech says we put straight gas in it. My husband works for the county and uses mix gas every day he knows what kind of gas it uses. We have owned a blower for 20 years and I think we know by now what kind of gas to use. WE NEVER USED STRAIGHT GAS. He said this to save his own behind cause he could not fix it and broke it himself. We are very upset about this that he would lie over a 100.00 blower. Every time I pass Sears I will probably keep going to some one who cares
