Purchased a Craftsman Snow Thrower from the Maplewood, MN Sears store in Oct. 2007.
Used it twice that season and noticed a distinct miss in it. The following season, the unit was not used. This season, replaced the plug and drained the gas. Ran for about ten minutes and died.
Will no longer start and has less than 2 hours of operation. Sears Consumer Services will do nothing to remedy the situation because it is out of warranty.
Take my advise; do not buy snow and lawn equipment from Sears. Their units are garbage and do not represent what Craftsman used to stand for - Quality!
Monetary Loss: $700.
