Parents purchased Samsung refrigerator from Sears. The ice maker malfunctioned, sending water streaming from unit & flooding the kitchen. We turned off water & called Sears Home Repair. A technician came out Monday, replaced the ice maker, charged $376 for parts & labor and left. The ice maker did not make any ice by Tuesday, so we called back to Sears Home Repair. They said they could not come out until Friday. I spoke with 3 different representatives and a supervisor. None of them seemed concerned or interested in getting a sooner repair. I called another number (after an hour getting transferred) and got a rep who was able to schedule an appointment that afternoon. The different technician tested the original ice maker & determined it was not broken. He diagnosed the problem as a faulty circuit board and water valve. He ordered the parts, but had to spend almost 20 minutes on "hold" with his own parts department to order the proper parts.
I sent an email to Sears Customer Service detailing my dissatisfaction with the service. This is the reply I got:
"Thank you for contacting Sears. We are always interested in hearing

What an insult. They did nothing to address my complaint or the specific situation I brought to their attention. I will not be shopping at any Sears store!
