Sears in Grawn, Michigan - Craftsman mower piece of junk.

I purchased a craftsman riding lawnmower in April of 2011. We used the lawnmower for two months before the end I summer. Due to the extreme drought we used the mower for the first time last week and the mower stopped working in the middle of mowing. When sears came out to repair it we were told the transmission was completely out ofI the mower. This is a product that Should last more than two months and carries the craftsman name. I have recently researched this mower and found the mowers themselves have lots of issues and will undergo multiple repair. I have spoke to multiple representatives whom all refer me to send a letter to a mail stop in Chicago. I see this as a way of blowin me off. I spent $1000.00 on this mower and expect the quality I paid for. The quality of a craftsman. If this situation is not rectified I will never purchase anything from sears again. No one can make the decision to give me in store credit so I can purchase a rider with better reviews. Tired of the run arounds!!

I have to agree with you! I have a zero turn bought in March this year, now the spindle has blown up, I am lucky I did not get seriously injured.

I have had to call Sears warranty 3 times and am not sure if they will get the parts shipped out to me. The first two calls they assured me they would get shipped but it didn't happen.

I too will NEVER buy anything from Sears again. Spent over $3000.00 for this machine and warranty.

Sears in Seattle, Washington - No replacement for damaged merchandise

Ordered outdoor furniture, received 4 of 5 pieces, 5th piece returned due to damaged while shipping. When speaking with customer for SEARS I was told that I would have to place the order AGAIN because of their inadequate billing. I do not understand that if the warehouse receives a returned item that has been damanged, then why won't they issue the item again. But noooooo they want me to place the order again. If I did this to my customers they would not return to me for other services. Therefore, I will not do any business with Sears again or any other entities owned by them. I will be disassembling the items that were received because their customer service is inadequate!!! Looks like the new CEO cannot fulfill his promise to FIX Sears.

I am seeing a lot of complaints about Sears. I too have found that their Warranty Service is useless!

I have paid over $3000.00 for a zero turn mower that is now being used as a lawn ornament! Let's get a movement going against Sears and their less than useless Service.

I just saw this online and wanted to let the above commenter know that the leakage problem has forced Sears into redesigning the part. Please contact them and they will replace it for free.

My warranty was expired, my floor was wet and I thought the kids had been leaving the freezer open.

Turns out it is a badly designed drainage tube issue. Call 1.800.253.1301 and schedule an appt!

Hey, This is nothing new for Sears Warranty service. I have had to call three times to get parts for my zero turn mower and spent long periods of time on the phone.

They say they feel bad, but they don't have the problems, WE DO! Let's start a movement ......

Will never buy from Sears again.

I ordered a new washer and dryer online from Sears for my mother. Their website says they go above and beyond by running the washer and dryer to make sure everything is working properly. My mom telephoned me after delivery upset because her washer was making a horrible noise. I asked her if they had run the washer, and she said no, they were in a hurry and hadn't run it. She had called Sears to ask if someone could come and take a look at it, and she was given an appointment time for 5 days later. After I talked to Sears customer service (I use that term loosely) and all the run around and hassle, my mom decided to just return the appliances and take our business to a local company.

Sears in Warner Robins, Georgia - Craftsman mower less than 2 years old in shop again

I purchased a craftsman lawn mower form sears in May 2011. Since March of this year I have had to take it back to Sears for repair 3 times. 3 times in 7 months. They sent it to their repair shop (3 week round trip each time) and I get it back not working any better than it did before. I have asked for a replacement but they just want to keep "repairing" it. They have had my mower for over 2 months total of the last 7 months. I do not recommend purchasing a Craftsman product of any kind as their quality and customers service is non existant

Melismad,

I wish your story was uncommon yet for Sears it seems ALL To COMMON.

I took my electric Craftsman mower into the service center to be repaired. It was only 18 months old and was under a 2 year parts and labor warranty. I got a call from their service center employee today after I brought it in yesterday who starts the conversation by saying they no longer make this product and cant get parts (AFTER 18 MONTHS and its something Craftsman makes?). Then he proceeds to tell me that since they cant get parts they wont repair the unit and I can either come pick it up or they will destroy the mower for me.

I ask him how the mower credit will be applied since what I paid for had a warranty and if it will be credited toward another purchase. He said no as he will just mark it up as I must have done something to make the mower motor assembly break. That he will say it is not any defect so the warranty wouldnt apply and Sears was not responsible. The mower bolts holding the blade and motor housing together snapped while mowing. Luckily the blade did not hit me, as it dug into the ground or else it could have caused major injuries!

I asked him how I could have caused the bolts to snap? According to Sears Repair Center Rep it's not their problem and I need to come get my useless $250 Electric Craftsman Mower. Then he proceeds to tell me they have specials on new mowers and to talk with the manager to see if he might help me out finding as new one.

Sears Warranties are worthless!!!!!

Sears, this is the second time you have played this warranty game with me. The frst I blew off as a bad ordeal because it was a $50 item. NEVER Again though will I be ripped off by your company and i am reviewing what actions I will take to mitigate this issue. I also posted my ordeal earlier although the location came up wrong as to where this took place. Hey SearsCares, I realize your company locations profit from negating warranty claims and minimizing the loss to profits from pay outs yet this is ridiculous. You blame consumers and refuse to honor YOUR Warranties and that is a pathetic and immoral way of handling customer service.

Sears Deliv ery

After dealing with Sears for over fourty years , I must write to complain about your delivery system. I purchased a washer from your store in the City of Orange. The delivery department was completely unflexable with their delivery times. I live by myself and work nine to eleven hours a day and six hours on Saturday. The delivery people said ther were no times available after 3:00 P.M. during the week. I chose a time on Saturady September 8th and lost six hours of pay at time and one half. The gave me a delivery time between 1:15 and 3:15 P.M. At 4:00 P.M. I called Sears home delivery and asked , when are they going to deliver the washer? They responed , that they were running late and they probably wouldn't be here until 8:00 or 8:30 P.M. That's unaccepiable! I have purchased a number of large appliances from sears in the past , and I have never experenced anything as bad as this! I will now take all my new business to another retailer. I sure Home Depot or Lowels would appreciate a loyal customer! Pat Calabrano, 50 Monroe Irvine Ca. 714-4730713.

SEARS IS A JOKE NEVER BUY ANY APPLIANCES FROM THEM

We bought a new fridge at sears in Maui Hawaii. It was for a new tenant moving in that week on a tuesday Fridge was paid for and on tuesday no fridge, We called and they said sorry it was out of stock but did take our money in full the week before. But they did have a floor model a few scratches though, What were we to do tenant is already there. Now two years later its dead dead and not even repairable. Thats probably because its junk form God knows what country. So now Sears just says too bad you should have go a warranty. Please Please Please reconsider any other place in the USA to buy appliances from Costco Home Depot or Lowes but never go to Sears Lets get rid of these terrible rip of stores in the USA

I have to agree with the entire sentiment regarding SEARS. We started using them 12 years ago and they were by far the best.

They delivered on time, repaired things on time, serviced things like clockwork. Then the rot set in. Now they have lost all credibility with everyone I know. What comes first?

the decline in public opinion or the decline in service levels? It has to be the later. Then things get worse and stores close and the rot gets ever more to be a part of the whole organization. Sales slump, people are cut, repair shops close, and reputation declines even further.

You do not have to be a rocket scientist to work it out. The people on the inside push for lower prices from their suppliers and the quality declines. Our last purchase was a $700 BBQ, that is now looking like a 15 year old wreck, yet its only 3 years old! Thin metal, cheap controls, fails to light, paint finish failing.

This was when we decided never ever to buy from them again. The BBQ before that lasted 10 years, but was not from SEARS - lesson learned, once bitten twice shy!

I purchased anew fridger from Sears (Langley BC Canada) 1st fridge came defeative, 2nd fridge came defective, 3rd fridge, same ***.taking it with the manager and repairs, treated like a piece of dirt, infact the manager attempted to bar me from the store and (SEARS) to buy. Told them to stick everything politely where. Challenged the manager of the store. He backed down. Never bought ever again at this Sears Store/Sears again. I have documents,pictures and letters of complaint to back up. SEARS your reputition/service, plus in my view is gone. I do not shop there now. (FT)
