  • kitchenaid oven repair

    My oven had uneven heat distribution, so we called Sears home services since they claim to be knowledgeable in Kitchenaid repair. The technician arrived, said we needed a new motherboard, ordered it, charged me $400 for part and labor, then said a real repairman would have to come out in 10 days to fix it. When second person came, he asked us if we knew where the repair part went since he wasn't familiar with Kitchenaid stoves. He couldn't fix it so scheduled another repairman to come a week later. That person said the part wasn't needed and could find nothing wrong with the... More...

  • replacement windows

    We odered replacement windows for our home in florida. We were told it would take 3-5 weeks for windows to come in. We waited 3 months and after numerous calls and excuses we finally had someone show up to install. It was suppose to be a man showed up and it took him 8 hours to do one window and messed it up. After several more calls we finally got 2 men to show up and finish the install. They had to come back again to caulk and finish the outside work and replace 2 broken screens. The installer that caulked the outside used non paintable caulking and made a mess and it... More...

  • horrible scheduling

    I have a Sears extended warranty service for almost every appliance in my home. My Kenmore washing machine was over filling and flooding so scheduled a repair service (order #000822840578030). They were supposed to be at my home between 10:00 am & 2:00 pm. They didn't come and didn't call. I tried to use the "real time tracking" they send a link for in the scheduling email, but all it does is say they are coming between 10:00 and 2:00. Finally at 3:00 the tech called to say he would be there in the next 30 min. At almost 5:00 he called again and said he... More...

  • Poor service experience

    I purchased a service agreement when I purchased my DGS 6500 Craftsman garden/lawn tractor. I%u2019ve even renewed the agreement several times. Big mistake. Originally Craftsman was the gold standard in Sears tools, but ever since Sears was bought out by K-Mart the quality and timeliness of the service has declined. I give my last encounter as an example. The first week of May 2017 I had a mower belt brake. I called to make an appointment and was told the earliest I could get one was on the 25th. I wanted to go take the mower to a local Sears shop, but was told it wouldn%u2019t be... More...

  • Lawn tractor repair

    This is a Craftsman tractor purchased late in 2013. My husband used it twice before he died. Every time we have used this mower the drive belt becomes disengaged. We have had it repaired about 3 times prior to this. We waited 2-1/2 weeks for an appointment. The repair person charged us $337.14 to fix the mower. First time we used it the blade assembly dropped exactly like it did before the repair. I called Sears and the person said it would be another 3 weeks before the repair person could come again. I stayed on hold so long that the line hung up on me. Today I renewed my... More...

I made the appointment and then the day before they called and canceled and wanted to know if I needed to reschedule (pretty sure HVAC doesn't fix itself so stupid question).

    We called in to Sears Home Services initially in July 2015 to have our washing machine fixed. It leaked water causing rotted floors, that we are still trying to get done, but our insurance company has been waiting on a quote from the technician. At first, we paid the fee for a technician to come and paid about $90 for a 2 years warranty. The technician placed an order on a part that took two weeks to get fixed. We called a day later, just to find out our service call was cancelled. They had to put in a new service call. The next booking we had was on August 11, to which a new technician... More...

  • No Response, No Refund

    I had a technician come out, diagnose a need for expensive parts, order them, and they arrived in a few days. So far, so good. But it would be weeks before they could come back to repair our refrigerator. Meanwhile we found a local man who fixed it without needing the parts. We returned the parts and were promised a refund. That was months ago and still no refund. Repeated calls result in repeated promises to either call me (first few promises) or email with a resolution. Within 24 hours. No calls or emails have come in. What does it take to get action from these people? More...

  • Sears Broken Washing Machine

    I am extremely disappointed with Sears Home Repair services! I am demanding a full refund of the money I spent on my service call. On April 6 we had a service call concerning our GE washer, purchased from Sears. The service tech misdiagnosed the problem and gave an estimate of over $750 for the repair which I naturally refused. I had an independent service repair service come out and confirm that the problem was a broken mount on the inner basket and that it was covered 100% by warranty. He could not do the job since he was not GE certified. I called you guys back and had another... More...

  • GE fridge, ice maker leaking, ice dispenser broken by repairman

    I'd always had good luck with repairmen from Sears in the past, so I bought their Home Warranty. In late January I called because I had ice dripping down the inside wall of my freezer. A repairman came five days later and said the ice chute wasn't working properly. I doubted this was the cause for all that dripping but the part was ordered and installed a week later. The new ice chute door stuck open. The contractor came out three days later and lubed it. It worked for a while. Meanwhile I still had water dripping inside my freezer. I let it continue to do so for a while... More...

  • Pathetic Service

    I recently purchased a riding lawnmower for Sears...and was assured that it would be fully operational when delivered (and that any questions I might have about its operation would be answered). The delivery team basically dumped it on my doorstep. Parts were not properly installed, etc. When the delivery service called 30 minutes later to ensure my satisfaction, I told them I was quite dissatisfied. Their response: "I'm sorry...goodbye." I've just spent 45 minutes on the phone talking to different people within Sears Customer Service -- none of whom seemed capable... More...

  • Sears Replacement Window Warranty

    In 1991 Sears replaced the windows in my house with energy efficient "lifetime" warranty windows. We have recently encountered some problems with some of the windows. I have the original paperwork which states the warranty documentation will be mailed after installation. I cannot locate the documentation and think it likely I never received it. Sears refuses to honor the warranty and will not even send a representative to look at the problem unless I agree to pay a $100 fee. More...

  • Washer Repair and Service Very Very Bad

    I purchased an LG WT1101CW from sears in March of 2013 with an extended warranty (till 2018). After getting an error message on the machine, I called the service line who tried to trouble shoot it over the phone to no avail. They then scheduled a service appoint for approximately a week and a half out (which was this morning). The technician came out, replaced a part, said it was working and left. The very first load of laundry I started after he left I received the same error message. I promptly called the service tech at the number he called from this morning and left a message, and then...

  • Furnace Extortion

    Our heating broke down a few days before Christmas, I was having trouble getting an engineer to come but Sears had an appointment. The Engineer came the next day, he identified the problem as the inducer motor and said the part was $1300 so it would be around $1500 with labor. He tried to get me to pay $1400 for an appointment 2 weeks later. I declined as it seemed high and was a long wait. When he left I googled the part - it was around $200. Either he made a mistake or he was trying to con me. I've since had it fixed for $400 including Labor (& didn't wait 2 weeks).... More...

    Sears has been completely disappointing in their repair services of late. I have now wasted three Saturday's for them to "diagnose" the problem with my icemaker not producing ice.
