Sears in Livonia, Michigan - Wrong order shipped

1.6
Details
Sears shipped me the wrong part. when i called to complaint the sears employee was so rude and refused to refund what i paid for the battery. When i told him i will be calling the main office he laughed, It seem to me they know that sears main office will not do a thing about it, he was right no one cared when i called. Sears does not appear to care about their custome rs. That is really too bad. I was a very loyal customer.I can see why the company is struggling with keeping up a profitable business, i saw their stocks tumbled from $140 to the forties, that's a shame

Sears screwed me out of replacing my fridge under warranty

Sears screwed me out of replacing my refrigerator which was under warranty. I recently returned to my home in Florida to a refrigerator covered in mold, infested with bugs, and with a stench that smelled like a dead body. Horrified, I called Sears and they sent a technician to come take a look. The technician verified that the compressor (the thing that keeps the fridge cold) had broken. So naturally, the food went bad. He then went on to explain that even if the compressor was repaired, the refrigerator would not be safe to use due to the poor condition it was in. He called Sears and told them that the fridge was unrepairable. They told him that due to "protocol" he had to order the parts and do the repair before it could be approved for a replacement. A week went by and the parts finally came in. (Meanwhile I am using a beach cooler and replacing it with ice each day to keep my food cold.) A second technician came to repair the fridge and immediately determined that there was no use in repairing the part because the fridge was unrepairable. In order to repair the part, he would be putting his own health and my health at risk. He would have to gut the entire fridge which meant the entire house would then be infested with the bugs and smell of the rotting food. He called Sears and told them he would not repair it and he contacted the District Manager's office to let them know that the fridge would have to be replaced. He sent pictures to the District Manager's office documenting the severity of the condition, as well. He then collected the parts that had been sent and left. He told me to wait another 24 hours and then to call back to see if the report was approved for a replacement. I called back again the next day. What do you know! Still- they refused to replace the fridge. They said the reason the fridge was unrepairable was "customer neglect". They completely ignored the fact that the reason the food was moldy was because their product was faulty. I spoke with probably 15 different Sears representatives across all different departments and including several managers- None of them were helpful. They all kept repeating the same thing: "Mold is not covered under your warranty". It has been 2 weeks since I initially called Sears. I am still eating out of a beach cooler filled with ice. Two Sears technicians came to my home and verified that a replacement is needed. The second technician even told me that it would be uneconomical to repair the fridge (meaning it would cost Sears less to replace it than to repair it.) But Sears still would not budge. All I have to say is: Sears, you lost a valued customer. We own 3 homes - all of which are furnished with appliances from Sears and insured with Sears. Today I canceled all of my insurance contracts with you. I will no longer purchase appliances, or anything for that matter, from you. And I will continue to share this story with everyone so that they do not become another victim of your thievery.

I would recommend only getting help from people at the store location they are very nice and will go above and beyond to help you. If you have to call their delivery service they don't know whether they are on foot or horseback. They will transfer you to a bunch of...

Scammed out of money but because I was having medical problems and disc disease I didn't really pay attention to the bill until the bed collapsed. The asst manager came up with several reasons but was rude/arrogant and refused to help me. He lied about submitting a report to some unknown place that he said would get back to me the following day.

Sears in Omaha, Nebraska - Kenmore elite double oven

I brought a Kenmore elite double ven in AUgust of this year and it continuously burns my food in the bake mode. I have set the temp at 350 and 325 and placed the items on the second shelf and everything from cakes, biscuits, and roasts burn on top and are not cooked in the middle. A couple of weeks ago my food actually caught on fire and the oven after 10 mins at 350. the cake on top caught fire and the oven stayed on I put the fire out and the repair man came today. He said that the relays in the oven are working, We are not satisfied with this it is dangerous and we are not sure what to do I have followed the instructions from the manual to the tee, and still I cannot bake in this ovn it burns every item on top and and actually causes a fire. Please help

Buy an oven thermometer at most any store and then turn the oven on, set the temp for 350, wait till it beeps that it is at 350 and see what the oven thermometer reads as the temp. A variance of 10 or so degrees is normal as these oven thermometers are not precise.

If the oven, as you suspect is way over 350, you have identified the problem. Have the repairman proceed from there. I am surprised, tho that the guy didn't check this out while he was there. It should still be under warranty, so demand Sears fix it or give you a new one.

Good luck. And, of course you know Sears is no longer the Sears, Roebuck & Co. we all grew up with, don't you?

Best to not buy appliances from them anymore. Good luck.

UPDATE: Emailed Sears corp. but never got a reply.

Bye-Bye Sears! Will never shop there again............

Original review posted by user Nov 18, 2015

Bought an item for hubby for Christmas. (on-line) The price went down but since it is past the 7-days of purchase they will not refund the difference. I can however, take it back to the store (it is a LARGE item) and re-buy it at the lower price ~ crazy!! Just give me the difference. I won't shop there early again if at all. Not right! It is marked on my invoice that it is a gift item - should nix the 7-day policy for refunds, ESPECIALLY around the holidays. No wonder Sears has a problem staying in the black. I could of and will next time go Home Depot or Lowe's.

The last purchase I will ever make from Sears

1.0
Details
Our Sear's water heater died 9-24-15. It was guaranteed for 12 years but only lasted 6. Called their warranty department and was told they would replace it and that I only had one year warranty left from the third previous water heater. A 12-years warranty on the new one would cost $399, which I paid over the phone and Eric in Iowa informed me I should receive a copy of my receipt and warranty within a month. They gave me a number to take to Sears to pick up the new one. 11-2-15 I called and spoke with Vanessa in Florida who promised to mail me a copy of my warranty. 11-9-15 I spoke with Gail who said she would mail me a copy. Had to call another number to request a copy of my receipt. 11-18-15 Spoke with at least 6 different employees of Sears and was given more promises to send what I requested. Obviously, the copies I requested at the time of my purchase were never sent. They should have been mailed automatically, even without a request. Was informed by more than one person that Sears waits until they have what they determine to be a sufficient number of warranty requests before they will mail any of them. This is not customer service. I have spent hours of my life in addition to all the aggravation of being shuffled from one employee to another and hearing promises they have no intention of keeping. One of the phone transfers was to a person in the Philippines who said her department was not the correct one to help me. Between the policies of Sears and too many of their incompetent employees, I will never purchase from them or K-Mart again. I did speak with a few intelligent people but they are seriously out numbered by the others.

Their surprise rewards points are just that. A big surprise they are or maybe a better word would be invisible because they email you to pull you in and tell you that you have all theses extra points and when you get to checkout - surprise they are not there. What a scam!

Sears - Kenmore Washing Machine Review from Bellflower, California
I am so angry at Sears customer service and company. I have trying to get a $600+ refund back from them for over a year now. No matter how many hours or time I spend on the phone trying to get help from their customer service. No one was helpful at all. Till this day I have yet to receive a phone call back from them no matter how many time they transferred me to someone else and promise to call me back. This company is a scam and fraud. At first my sister and brother went to Sears to buy a kenmore washer for $449.99 but it wouldn't drain no matter how many time we got it service. So I called in to exchange it for a Samsung washer for the amount of $615.99 and paid the difference of $186. But here is the catch. The day of delivery and pick up I decided to cancel my order on the Samsung. Cause I got so frustrated with Sears customer service. The two guy ended up keeping my Samsung and also grabbed my broken kenmore too. They never ever reported that I canceled my order. So now showing on the second receipt. It states that I returned the Samsung for 615 and exchanged it for the broken kenmore that was sitting in my house for $450 and they credited me back 186. Which was not true at all. Cause they took the broken kenmore away and never delivered the Samsung at all. My sister and mother have been going to their store and waited hours to have this case settled. But no matter how many time they promise to investigate on it. No one ever calls us back. I promise to never ever shop at this company ever again. And I encourage other people not to get fooled by them either! If I still don't get a phone call back from them by this Wednesday. I will finally take this to court. I rather put out some money to sue this fraudulent company then to have them walk away with my hard earn money like that!

I advise that you NEVER order anything from the Sears vendor "FastMedia." I ordered something online through Sears via "FastMedia" on November 3 for a November 13 delivery. It didn't arrive. I received an update on November 11 that FastMedia had shipped the product...

Maybe Sears should own the fact that fast media is taking artists and others website products, marking them up and offering for sale an item they don't have to sell.

Sears in Newburgh, New York - Bad customer service

2.3
Details
Since I can recall this store has the worst customer service. It has happened on numerous occasion time and time again. One time was when an associate answered her personal cell phone while cashing me out. She had the audacity to make me wait while she finished her call. Second was when they wouldn't replace my tablet that just stopped working (it had only been 21 days since purchase) they told me I had to call another company and that company was telling me to take it up with the store. I had a warranty on it. They still didn't do anything. Last and final straw was when my pregnant sister bought a stroller set from them and they didn't help her take it to her car. It was heavy and they didn't even ask if she needed help. She even had to take it apart in the parking lot so it would fit in the car. I will add that "Michelle" is a sweetheart. Very polite friendly and amazing customer service skills. She WAS the only reason I visited the store. I feel bad she is stuck in such a horrible store.
