Sears Home Warranty Reviews Page 54
After my Kenmore fridge stopped cooling with only a little over 5 years old I was talked into this warranty plan with them. First visit I was told they had to come back fridge needed to be on two days. He believed it was the compressor. Next visit it was the compressor. He ordered the part, said he d be back before 8pm. No show. Next day showed fridge stopped working after two days. Two more weeks finally another servicemen had to order parts and another delay into second month another Delay. They extended service appointment again 12-5 no show no call. Three calls to warranty company. Said minor delay and I'll get call. They'll be here 7:30 pm. No call, no service. Just about two months without working fridge and they won't replace fridge until multiple visits which I was never told. Worst warranty service. Not worth it! Also Kenmore is terrible product. Stay as far away from Sears and their products as possible.Pauline E.
While having the warranty, it took several l phone calls and technicians to come out and service our washer and dryer... very frustrating experience. So once our year was up, I decided to cancel my contract. Unfortunately, it wasn’t cancelled on their end, so I had to go through hoops to get my refund, which was approved, but they only gave me a partial refund from what they originally told me. Now I’m on my 5th phone call to them on getting the rest of my refund... EVERY week so far I’ve been told it’s been approved and it should take 3 to 5 business days. I asked to speak to a supervisor or manager, they said there isn’t anyone I can speak with... REALLY!!! So now I guess I’ll wait for ANOTHER 3 - 5 business days, if nothing, I will be calling my bank.Grace S.
I pay $70.00 a month for the Sears Home Warranty (DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY). My AC unit stopped working, I called in a claim with Sears, below is the timeline relative to trying to get resolution to the claim - which is still pending. 7/20/18 - Called Sears - AC stopped working. 7/23/18 - GSSN LLC came to house to check unit - determined compressor needed to be replaced and technician said he would submit paperwork ASAP (he did not). 7/24/18 - I called Sears to find out status - they said they did not receive the paperwork from GSSN.
I called GSSN and they said they have 48 hours in which to turn paperwork around - explained that tech said he would submit right away and that they would call me back with status - no call back 7/25/18 - Received text message from GSSN that they submitted paperwork 7/27/18 - Called GSSN to find out if they had received approval for ordering part/repair. They had not.
Called Sears who stated that they sent claim to their claim review dept. and it would take 7 days before determination was made as to next course of action (replacement part to be ordered or if other options would need to be considered, of which would include me paying additional money). In the meantime I had to go to Home Depot and buy a free standing AC unit for $399.00 in order to at least cool down the living room in my house since this is taking so long.
I still can't get a straight answer from Sears and they are not in any hurry to remedy the issue. I will be canceling the home warranty and furthermore will never - ever buy anything from Sears again; they just lost me as a dedicated customer - and I will be telling everyone I know about this awful experience.Faith M.
If there is zero star I will choose it. Take care... take care... take care... They are spam and such liar company. I have signed up and after about 35 days I decide to check on their service if it is true or not so I can stop with them and not pay full contract payments. I made very easy claim for my cook top which has issue with ignition, the provider visits us and said we will contact company to buy parts and repair it. I told him it is need just open it and fix it then he told me no it is require parts. I wait for 6 week every day I called. Eventually they told me your claim declined because it is old appliance. I told them your terms said there is no age restrictions then I request to contact manager or supervisor. After that they do not answer my call or emails and no call back for 2 months now. I have disputed all the charge and stop paying them.Dunya A.
If there is an option to give a rating less than 1 I would have done that. I'm an existing customer for Sears Home Warranty. I took sears warranty this year, by just going by brand and higher expectation of service. 1. I was told that they provide proactive maintenance for AC till end of April. I created a request, waited and waited. This never happened. 2. Come July I created a service request for my faulty air conditioner. I quoted the prior service request.
The representative was good enough to put the blame of me that I should have called the service provider and confirmed the appointment. Point taken. This time I called the service provider assigned and confirmed the appointment. I was given a time - 8AM- 12 Noon.
Waited and called the provider. Provider mentioned that sears has pulled out the service request from it's work queue. That's weird !! Called sears with the concern. I was told that the dispatch team will provide me with the details of service provider, no time frame. I had to stay home to take this appointment and I still don't see any urgency from Sears to get it resolved asap. With the previous warranty I never faced this back and forth, it was just one call away. Looking forward for finishing the contract term and moving on.RAJEEV R.
If I could give it -5 stars I would. I have had a tech out 10 times and have called about 20 times and still keep getting the run around. The only consistent thing about the customer service rep is that each one tells me the last one provided me incorrect information. STAY AWAY!! Would have been cheaper for me to buy a whole new fridge.Mairobi G.
I called Sears for four problems during the year. One refrigerator (two problems) was completely fixed. One refrigerator was partially fixed. One stove they weren't given permission to repair but told us what to do to partially repair ourselves. Some of the repairmen were top notch and some were borderline incompetent. One had driven from three hours away because of a shortage of repairmen.
I think I probably broke even on what it would have cost to not have the warranty but Sears is the only person who would service my Samsung and LG refrigerators anyway so I had to use them. Between the warranty cost and repair costs, I probably spent $1000. A significant problem I had was cancelling the warranty after a year. It started with an email that said the warranty would auto renew. I called and cancelled.
The emails and letters kept calling so I called again and was told they had no record that I had cancelled (person was rude about it) and I was transferred three times before someone again cancelled me. Today I received a letter saying I was cancelled and the tone of the letter was definitely not friendly. Even if I liked their service, I wouldn't use them again because of the difficulty cancelling.Susan G.
By calling Sears, I found out my new dishwasher was to be delivered June 26th. It wasn’t! I tried calling Sears many, many times and IF I talked to a live person the connection was so bad that it was mostly a conversation saying “what” or Huh” or “I can’t understand you”. Only most recent call, yesterday, I found out that it was supposed to have been delivered on July 10th. I wasn’t notified nor did it come. I did receive a check for the installation of the dishwasher. However, I’m afraid that I will never get it.Barbara F.
I have had the Sears Home Warranty for over two years. I purchased the plan when my refrigerator broke. After three months of different repairmen arriving and not understanding what the last person did, I purchased a new refrigerator but kept the plan. That was a huge mistake. The week before Memorial Day I called to report that my dishwasher would not start the wash cycle. The dishwasher is 15 years old.
The first repairman said it should be replaced but his company refused. Two months and many repair visits later the dishwasher still does not work. The repairmen replace parts with “refurbished” parts. The lights on the front panel all came on before the first visit. The electric control board was replaced, door switches which worked prior to repair had to be replaced, and the list goes on.
Today the repairman found another part that did work is now broken so he is ordering another “refurbished” part. The repair has been outsourced by Sears and that company will have to pay for a new appliance. It is a shell game where the technicians cannot fix the dishwasher so they keep replacing parts until the customer cannot take the stress of a broken appliance any longer. Sears representatives are not helpful and have no desire to make the customers happy. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS WARRANTY PROGRAM! If a zero rating were possible, that would be my choice.Dickie H.
So disappointed about my AC/washer on Saturday 7/7/2018 the whole day believing that Sears's technician would show up between the hours 1-5. At 3:45 pm. I received a email saying my appointment had been canceled with no reason why! So my husband called the Customer service for an explanation why! Naol was unable to answer. My husband request a supervisor. "Naol" took his information and said a supervisor will call you back before night's up. Then offered a new appointment day for Thursday 7/12/2018 between the hours of 8-12am. NO supervisor returned our call.
On Wednesday morning my husband called back Sears and spoke with a Supervisor by the name of Lita. She in turn offered an apology for the appointment being canceled on Saturday to him and Lita then offered a $30 gift card for the Inconvenience and re-scheldule a new appointment for Friday7 /13/2018 and assured him that the tech would come 8am-12.pm. That same morning we scheduled another appointment for the washer which was on the blink it was for same day for 1-5pm.
On Friday the Tech that showed up for the AC wasn't knowledgeable about the AC unit so he requests assistance from another technician. Upon his leaving he was sure that he would be back before 4 o'clock that day with help to fix the unit. At 3:54 we called customer service once again to see if the Tech was on his way for the washer. They assured us that the Tech was running late and they would be there between 5-7 o'clock. Meanwhile the AC Tech called to advise us that he was unable return and that we would need to re-scheldule AC service call. We once again called customer service and they said that they were close. We would have to call and reschedule again. Unresolve as even now.VeronicaVeI m L.
