First instance - Repair of a Gas Range: A little over a year ago we purchases a higher end gas range from Sears. Unfortunately, it had a defect and needed to be repaired. (Basically, the ignitor for the oven didn't work, and would cause small [e.g. firecracker loudness] gas explosions once the over abundance of gas got concentrated enough for the failing ignitor to set off the gas. This was VERY dangerous.) We contacted Sears Home Services to have the item repaired. In short, the first technician arrived to diagnose the problem. He ordered a new ignitor and told us to call when the part arrived to have it installed. We received the wrong part, getting the part for the broiler ignitor, for not the oven. So we called Sears Home Services, and they ordered the part again. ...and we got the WRONG PART AGAIN. (So now we have two broiler ignitors and no working oven.) So I then called the manufacturer, since the unit was still under warranty, and THEY sent me the right part overnight via FedEx. SEARS WAS NEVER ABLE TO ORDER THE PART CORRECTLY. A technition was dispatched to install the part, and he arrived FOUR HOURS LATE; our appointment was from 1 to 4PM, he arrived at 8PM. I hoped that this was a fluke, but, unfortunately, it was not. Second / Third instance - Repair of Refrigerator and Washing Machine: I called Sears Home Services, in early April 2011, to request that we get a technician to repair our broken refrigerator and failing washing machine. The refrigerator is a low priority, but having a one week old baby puts the washing machine at a HIGH priority. During the service request call I played a recording of the washing machine noise and the service consultant ("level 2") indicated that it was indeed broken and would need to be repaired. We also reported that the ice maker door on the refrigerator was broken and would not close, and he indicated that would be handled on the same visit. On the day of the repair visit the technician was 1 hour late from the given time of 8AM to 12PM. He informed me that he was there ONLY to perform a preventive maintanence inspection (aka tune up) of the washer, and not to repair it! I then mentioned the refrigerator and he indicated that he wasn't scheduled for that, and, after a call to the Sears mother-ship, found out that someone was coming between 2PM and 6PM to work on the broken refrigerator. (We were never told someone was coming in the afternoon.) THE TECHNICIAN LEFT WITHOUT TOUCHING OR INSPECTING A SINGLE PIECE OF EITHER OF THE BROKEN WARRANTIED APPLIANCES. The second ("afternoon") technician, that I had no idea was scheduled or coming, showed up in the late afternoon. I described the problem to him in detail, and he ignored me. After about 5 minutes he indicated that the issue was fixed. I used the ice maker and it failed to work immeadiately. At which point I told him that we would not have called if it was an easy problem, and that he needed to actually disassemble the door for the freezer to diagnose the issue. He refused to do so, started ordering parts, and told me to call back when they arrived. The following day a part arrived from the manufacturer that was not even related to the freezer door, so I called Sears Home Services to ask what the heck was going on. I carefully explained everything to a, surprisingly, wonderful woman on the phone, and she indicated three things: 1) That the first technician had been dishonest when he told me that he had scheduled someone to come to repair the washing machine. He gave me a date and time, and it was not in the system. (I did mentioned that it could be a mistake, and the Sears Home Services customer service representative was emphatic that this was NOT the case.) 2) That the records she was looking at were consistant with the refrigerator technician deciding that "he did not want to do his job"; in other words, she indicated, that didn't want to be bothered to take the door apart to determine the issue. 3) That I was the third customer call of the day (and it was 10AM) of a similar nature! She told me that she could schedule an appointment two weeks from the date of my call... 4/15/2011. So, at this point it's been nothing but a nightmare and we still don't have anything repaired that is currently broken. Also, that it will take two weeks for the technician to come and diagnose the problem, and then two or more weeks for someone to come and FIX the problems once they have the parts. All in all: We'll be lucky if we get either of our appliances repaired within a MONTH, if not six weeks! I can NOT recommend Sears or Sears Home Services for warranty or extended warranty repairs at this time.
