Sears in Chandler, Arizona - Total RIP OFF

TOTAL RIP OFF... I've had my Kenmore washer now repaired twice due to the same problem. The part in question is a "lid switch", and based on feedback in the web, other people have had the same problem with this part breaking. So it first broke in 2003 -- and my total repair bill (with parts) was about $103. Then it broke again in 2012, and the repair bill jumped to about $200 . Okay, I know there is such a thing as inflation, but for prices to nearly double in nine years is a joke. The part in question was about $16 in 2003 (supplied by Sears) but in 2012, they charge me about $58 for the same part -- it tripled?. So I Google for the part, and nowI find it for under $10 in year 2012! It is even sold for about that low price on Sear.com's web site. Unbelievable. Oh, the the guy was done with the work in under 20 minutes to give you an idea of how simple the job was. So I called Sear to complain, and they said they'd have someone call me back. They never returned the call. Sears violated my trust with them.

I had the same issue. A repair guy came and order all the parts to repair it, then another repair guy was sent to fix it when the parts came.

He immediately said it was not repairable. I told him that I was going to get a second pinion and next thing, he yank the refrigerator line of the refrigerator.

I cannot afford another refrigerator right now and Sears is only giving $500. according to my protection agreement.

After talking to searscares my problem was resolved, all I wanted was a little customer service and that's exactly what I got! I'm happy with my lawnmower and in the next few days I will be shopping around for a craftsman cordless drill, thank you sears for hearing m out!

Sears in Winter Park, Florida - Hostile work environment, working with freaks, unethical corrupt

working in the sears winter park call center is like being in jail or something...its full of freaks low lifes and weirdos. most of the idiots that work there are not only obese, *** weird and dumb they are very rude and mean to others. the management at sears is horrible and corrupt and will abuse employees and esp good employees while praising losers and low lifes. the management is really bad and will even physically hurt employees. There is a lot of unethical practices and corruptness there. These people will screw over good employees and keep doing it without care. They unethically fire people and break their own policies then lie about it. the managers lie and even bully and abuse employees for no reason. the entire place is a joke...If you try to ask to be treated fairly they won't do it. The managers are 20 something year old immature jerks who lie, and even sleep with half the women there. beware of this place its unethical corrupt and run in a messed up way...

Ordered a gift for my grandson, but saw it on Amazon for 3x less, so I tried to cancel the order online, but the web page said there was an error in processing my request and I called Sears and the call center told me they would email the company and they would cancel the order within 24 hours. No such luck.

I received an email from Outletzon that the order was already shipped by FedEx.

They are a fraudulent company and I told them when they inquired about my purchase that I would never recommend nor will I ever purchase from them again.

As for Sears, GO OUT OF BUSINESS ALREADY! YOU'RE USELESS!

Sears Kenmore Dryer a lemon

Update by user Oct 14, 2013

Sears had promised me a $100 refund; however, they backed out and gave me NOTHING since I hired another contractor to look at my dryer. Sears repair could not fix it after 3 attempts so I tried another route.

That repairman could not fix the problem as well. Needless to say, the Sears Kenmore dryer is now a hunk of metal in a junkyard somewhere by now and I am very happy with the dryer I purchased from Lowes.

Update by user Sep 19, 2013

I thought I would have a nice ending to this story but I do not. Sears refused to reimburse me any money for my loss of time at work or for the improper parts they ordered that never fixed the problem.

Because I hired another licensed contractor to look at my dryer since Sears repairmen could not fix the problem after 3 attempts, Sears decided to discontinue any reimbursement to me.

What a shame for what once was a very fine company. So long Sears, its been nice knowing you!

Original review posted by user Sep 11, 2013

I purchased a Sears Kenmore "Elite Smartheat" dryer in July 2009. In July of 2013 the dryer would no longer start. Sears came to repair three times and another company (by my request) came once. Sears repair changed a circuit board then realized it wasn't that so ordered another board and it wasn't that either The dryer is still not working and it is September 2013. Doesn't anyone there know how to fix your own product!!! I have giving up on getting this repaired as I need a dryer NOW, so I just purchased a new Whirlpool dryer at Lowe's. This has been an awful experience dealing with Sears and I will discontinue shopping for anything there in the future.
