I bought this freezer for the sole purpose to store 100 lbs of halibut and salmon caught in Alaska. It failed within a year and I lost at least 60 lbs of fish. After escalating through customer service at Sears, all they were willing to offer was a $100 dollar gift card. (Great, just what I want to do right now: spend more money at Sears.)
The above was in addition to a failed water pump on a Kenmore washer that is only 3 years old that cost me $200 dollars for a service call. The tech for that call, who was great, complained that the Samsung part was known for frequent failures.
Both of the above failures were within a few months of each other. I am very unhappy with the quality of appliances I have bought from Sears lately.
I have hundreds of dollars in Craftsman tools. Sears used to be known for quality; obviously, the bean counters have taken over from the engineers.
Monetary Loss: $1000.
