Sears in Ocala, Florida - Junk is what sear's sell, 27hp.kohler engine on mower ***

Purchased a 27 HP kohler mower tractor and had it replaced once for tearing up spindles and belt and know less than 80hrs.on it and starter took a ***. Starter rebuilders state that starter is a problem on these engines due to guality of materials used for the gear on the starter. This machine is less than 2 yrs. old when it broke down. Kohler stinks and so does Sears for their poor customer service. A whopping $100 for the gear alone the starter over $200. Shame on you Kohler you will be another Company going down the line like Car manufacturers and banks. shame shame shame

Scott @ Sears care I am still waiting for the starter and lift motor, I spoke to some lady after making a complaint with the insurance commissioner at Sears over a year ago and she asked me to send bills which totaled approx.$360. I sent the bills and up till today I have received nothing. Obviously Sears was not willing to make good on this complaint.

I called twice and received no response back, the motor that lifts the deck up and down went bad and the starter also which already has been replaced. I know for a fact that this is a problem with these mowers, why is Sears so hesitant to make good on it? I do not think I will get a call back but the # is 863-228-2382

Sears Service No Show

Like so many other customers, I took the day off work to meet the Sears repairman. After waiting 3-1/2 hours, a scheduler called to say he wouldn't make it and offered nothing other than "I'm sorry". Well, I'm sorry that sears will not get any more business from me. I recommend calling a reputable company who will keep its word. Sears used to be a good company and I bought appliances and lawn & garden equipment there and had the service policies. In the last few years (read KMart acquisition) the quality of products and services has plummeted. Find another retailer and let Sears go under unless it can make improvements.

They are blaming us not themselves(Sears and the Medic)

We spent $5,000 on Natuzzi leather furniture at Sears and the colour is coming off as well as the customer I just read about. They use a so called leather Medic as they call it to come out and inspect. He too wears leather. He blames the oils is our hands and the lotions we so call use as to why the colour is coming off. I said why do Bibles and saddles of 50 to 100 years old do not lose their colour? My furniture is not even a year old and we are so sorry....and guess what....no one will help us...they will take their money and have fun with it...HOW SAD.

Sears in Deerfield, Illinois - No estimated delivery time

I purchased two large appliances from my local store, in Chicago. As it turns out, I have to upgrade my breaker box to accommodate the new appliances, so fine, I consulted an electrician. The electrician needs the appliances to be present to finish his work, but I can't schedule him to come in and work because Sears cannot tell me when they will deliver the appliances. They are telling me it will be on Monday, sometime after 8:00 am, but before 6:30 pm. I cannot reasonably expect a professional tradesman to just hang out at my home all day long waiting for this delivery. Sears response, I'm just out of luck. On Sunday, between 6:00 - 9:00 PM, the night before the delivery, they can give me a narrower window, but again, the electrician needs to schedule his clients and other projects and cannot just drop everything to accommodate me. A four hour window, that's all I'm asking for! Also, the service is questionable. I bought the appliances from a local store, and they will be delivered by a third party delivery service, that I assume is local as well, but I have to deal with call center employees in Texas to schedule or ask questions about the delivery. With all the competition and price matching available, I feel like I would be much better off purchasing the identical appliances from a local company. I mean, you never know, but it seems like I should be able to get more accurate information before a Sunday night at 9:00 pm, and I believe a local company would be able to do that for me. But then, Sears was offering 12 mos. no interest, which is hard for a smaller company to offer.

Don't buy Sears appliances or repair service

Long story short: Sears charged us up-front for refrigerator repair, arrived, said the problem was coldness setting, they left, same problem existed. My husband fixed the problem himself after researching on internet. I went through a long process to get our $130 for non-repair refunded. Bought a dishwasher from Sears and paid an additional $149 for installation. Installer damaged it while installing. Called the store and they told us the only way to handle was we had to buy a SECOND dishwasher, schedule another installation, they'd take back damaged dishwasher and credit us for the double-charge. It's been weeks, and we're still waiting for the credit for returned dishwasher. BOTTOM LINE - Sears has TERRIBLE customer service, and it's getting worse. Do yourself a big favor and don't buy appliances at Sears or use their repair service. We've had nothing but grief and will never buy there again.

i am curious as to how you got the repair service fee refunded. i just posted about my very poor sears experience, which involved 3 separate tech visits over the past 6 weeks for the same problem.

The end result was basically that they still were not sure of what was wrong with my high efficiency front loader. These techs each time had to call tech support for assistance....pointing out their obvious lack of technical skill! each time they came with different parts (which i was charged for).... none of which remedied the problem.....

The 3rd time they came, they "thought" it might be the motor-- a $500 part!!!! By this time we were fed up with their guesswork and lack of customer service. I did calls sears and asked for a refund on the service charge...since nothing was repaired!!! They have began a "dispute" with a case number for me but were very upfront in stating that they doubted I would get the fee refunded since someone did attempt to fix the issue.....

I am filing a complaint a better business bureau as well. Any pointers to what you went through would be appreciated!

thank you

Sears Front Load Washer Elite

Purchased in April 2010 the very expensive Sears top of the line Front Load Washer elite. Already has broken down. Repairman tried to step out of fixing it. Said it was a power surge. SURPRISE to the Sears repairman. Hubby works for power company in the area that monitors power surge. Not true. Sad -- Spent 1000's worked 12 weeks and sears tried not telling the truth until -- they found out who my husband worked for. What a dishonest company. Sears uses the name Kenmore -- but washer was made by lg. Computer board going out after 12 weeks is not OK. Then to make this even more laughable -- the repairman showed me the built in power surge protector. Wow... how smart was that? Blame it on a electrical surge as you tell me their is a built in surge protector??????? *** is not fun to deal with when you are out 1000's

Dear Jethro,

My name is Scott; I'm with Sears Cares Escalations within corporate. I found your post and wanted to offer help. I'm sorry your new Kenmore washer has caused you so much trouble and frustration. I'm sure the misdiagnosis of the problem by the repair technician only amplified these feelings. Please understand it is not the motive of the repair department, nor the technician, to deliberately mislead a customer. Diagnostic checks on an appliance are no different than a car; the first attempt to find the problem may not always lead to the solution. We'd like to help. At your convenience please contact my office via email at searscares@searshc.com so that we can assist with resolving this issue. Please provide us a contact number and the phone number the washer was purchased under and we will call you at your convenience. In addition, include your screen name (Jethro) in the email so we can reference to your case.

Thank you,

Scott J.

Sears in Overland Park, Kansas - Screwed

We bought a fridge from Sears and after 3-4 days I called to say that the refrigerator made a lot of noise and I wanted to return the fridge. They gave me the run-a-round and then told me it would be 25%. My mother-in law bought a new dryer from Sears 18 months ago and the heating element and the timer are broke and they are telling her that it is going to be around $2350 to fi both problems on a 18 month old machine that cost $449. Sears is selling inferior products with a bait and switch mentality. Use the sears good name And SELL MCRAP. DOES ANYONE WANT TO START A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST SEARS?

Sears refused to honor their match pricing guarantee

Went to Sears with a price match for a LCD TV. Sears called the competitor and found out the competitor's price over the phone and that the TV was in stock. Sears asked to see the ad. I did not bring the ad with me. They then refused to honor their price match guarantee...and the manager, John Hernandez, threatened to call store secutiry when I requested they match the price as they claim in all the ads they put out. Sears is a sham outfit...the manager was a complete *** in how he handled me and I refuse to go back there for any product ever again.

:cry :cry I'd purchased a 5 year in home warranty on a $2,400.00 tv, it went blank no sound no picture,called sears for my home,and instead of coming to check my tv,they said they would mail me a part and i could put it in my self and if that didn't fix it,then we would try something else.They said i should receive my part in 3- 5 days, i paid $600.00 for a in home warranty not a mail you the part and fix it your self!! What the *** is this all about?

i want my money back!!! my tv is 2 years old.

The more i think about it the worse i get.Now here i sit with no tv waiting 3-5 days for a part i have to put in myself that may or may not fix my tv..

Buyers beware of paying for a in home warranty... Thank you...Ronnie Miller, KY.

The same thing has happened here to me on 2 seperate trips to Sears. They do not honor their ads.

We no longer purchase anything from them because of this. And like so many other places they have NO ONE who knows anything about the products they sell.

They hire high school kids who stand around visiting, talking about their weekends and act like it is a real problem to move so you can walk around them. GOD forbid you ask them something.
