Had mower motor go bad within the two year warrantee period. Through a rod.
I changed the oil, plug, and filter and stored for winter. When I started it up in the spring the mower through a rod. Sears says it had no oil in it. When I took it in, the store manager checked the oil and saw that it was clean and as I said.
The mower was under warrantee, yet the repair dept. said it failed because of lubrication.
The mower was a low budget model, ($199.00 new) however to repair the mower they wanted $362.00. Never again will I buy from Sears.

Monetary Loss: $199.
