Soon after the purchase of Samsung refrigerator (counter-dept) in 2011, the freezer would not close due to ice build up. We initially thought perhaps we did not close the door tight enough. A tech from Sears came out on October 2011, fixed the problem. So we thought.

In Sept. 2014, Same problem. Sear's tech came out (thank goodness I purchased extended warrantee at the time of purchase). Tech applied silicon (I think that's what he said) to back of refrigerator, where it was broken. Dec. 2014, a tech was called again for same issue. Tech did same again. I am currently having problem where now it leaks from the bottom. My kitchen floor is wet. A tech is scheduled to come back out on May 9, 2015.

When I called Sears, I was told that same issue had to repeat at least 4 times in one year for them to consider other options. I am extremely frustrated.

On Jan 2, 2015 a Sears repairman replaced a part on the range in my home (3625 Lake Hill Ln Hurst, TX 76053). The range stopped functioning on April 23, 2015. This repair/part barely lasted thru the 90 day warranty period + 21 days. I called the repair # requesting some type of price break on a service call to apparently replace the same part.

After 25 minutes on the phone, I was offered a chance to print a 20% off coupon. Given this performance and service, I have no confidence that a second repair/replace would yield better results. I will now begin shopping for a new range (IT WON'T BE PURCHASED A SEARS). I decline to rate the service since you don't have a rating lower than one star.

I have been a loyal customer of Sears due to your public image (treatment of Military Employees and contributions to causes such as Extreme Makeover). I must however make the decision to cease patronage of sears due to a loss of faith in your products and service.

I purchased a Sears riding lawn mower with extended warranty. When the transmission failed, I called for a service appt. I was given a date 3 weeks out for 1:00 to 5:00 PM. At 2:30, the day of the service call, a call informed my wife the appointment could not be kept. No follow-up appointment was offered. A call to the Federal Way, Wa., store was no help. The manager has said he would check service and call back, but no call came. As of today, my lawn is over a foot tall and Sears still has not responded to our attempts to have the $2,000 mower serviced under warranty.

On Monday April 13, 2015, I contacted Sears repair section to look at my Wash Machine which was having issues. I was informed that the only opening was Thursday 23 April, and I needed to be home from 0800 to 1700. On Wednesday 22 April, I called and confirmed my appointment. Sometime after that A phone message was left, and I received it on Thursday morning advising that I had to reschedule my appointment.

When I called I spoke to an individual who told me I had to reschedule. I informed him that I had taken the day off, and I needed to have someone come to look at my wash machine. He refused, and I then asked to speak to a supervisor, and the Supervisor told me I had to reschedule because they did not have a repairmen in my area that day. I asked for his name and he refused. I asked where he was and again he refused. Both men sounded not to be American but a mid eastern origin.

I had to wait till Sears opened to speak to a Manager who referred me to a corporate number which ended with me back to this same Call Center. I ended up reschedule for an appointment two (2) week later because they did not have an opening on a day I could be available. It was the most aggravating experience I have ever had and has left a bad taste in my mouth with any future dealing with Sears.

I had a problem with the micro wave oven. Sears were there 5 times to replace and remove broken parts. Then they wanted to sell me a new display board. I said fine, and they said that there is no warrantee and I will have to eat it if it does not work. Also, the last attempt to repair it, they broke the lower oven also. The tech is very rude and has no idea what he is doing. I will never used Sears again and never buy anything from them. I was loyal with Sears for over 25 years. I filed a complaint and called the next day. All the info I gave was deleted. Wow! Sears what happened to you. You became a rip off and liar. So far, they charged me $635.00 and never fixed the problem. And they took off every single part they put on. Shame on you! I am telling everyone how bad of a co. Sears is. Bye and good luck.

I recently spent 2 months in the hospital recovering from a heart attack and missed a payment on my credit account. I was treated rudely when I tried to resolve the issue with the employee who called. I just received my statement for April and found my account cancelled, a late fee of $35.00 was assessed, and the missed payment of $233.17 was added to the current payment bringing my monthly payment to $459.17 which I cannot pay as I was unpaid during my hospital stay. This also is different than other companies who when a payment is missed you pay a late charge only. Not only did they close my account but insisted on calling for the payment on Saturdays and Sundays at all hours even when I was semiconscious and in the hospital. It is bad enough that the account interest rate is 25.24% but the charges that accrued were the result of fraud on my account.

The delivery staff did not bring the vent/filters for my microwave. I reported the missing items to the Sears’ customer service representative in Newport News, Virginia and I was advised that I had to call the folks who delivered my microwave. She gave me the number, but did not make the call. Poor customer services, the sale clerk should have made that called since the microwave and stove was purchased and not charged and this writer paid for the product and had nothing to do with missing items; However, I called the Delivery Department @ 1-800-732-7747 and was advised that I would have to wait for 7 to 10 days for the delivery of the missing parts. I explained that the stove and microwave were for my rental property and that one of the reasons that the inspector failed the inspection was because the vent/filters were missing from the microwave.

I asked was there anyway that they can have the parts deliver to the store in Newport News and the staff said no and that I can call the part store and see what they can do to obtain the parts earlier. Again, poor customer service; why do I have to make all the calls? I paid for a product that was not delivered. The next day, I was able to get the inspector to allow a letter or something showing that the parts are on order; however, the staff at the delivery department stated that they are unable to give me a letter or email me anything showing that the missing items have been ordered. I am very dissatisfied and this is not the first time that Sears have showed me very poor customer services. The inspector will be at my rental property on April 24, 2015 and I still need something showing that the missing items have been ordered. This has caused an hardship on me because every day my rental property is vacant, I am losing money and a perspective tenant who is homeless is not allowed to move in until the house passes the inspection.

Bought a Kenmore Elite refrigerator $ 2600.00. Less than 3 years ago, it stopped working. Called Sears for repairs and was told it would take almost a month before they could get a repairman out for service. If they can not service item in certain areas why sell to customers. CALLED for service April 6, 2015 and was told repairs could not be made until maybe May 1, 2015. This is the worst service I have EVER experienced. Will never buy ANOTHER SEARS PRODUCT !!!!! This is just ONE of the problems I have had with their products. PRODUCE BETTER PRODUCTS OR GET A BETTER SERVICE DEPARTMENT !!!

Today we had a new dryer delivered and installed at my mothers house. My mother is elderly. I was not present at this time but when I arrived later today to see how it went I was told that they replaced the washing machine hoses. They told my mother the hoses were old and needed replacing and that they would do it for $25. My mother agreed and paid them cash and was not giving a receipt. The hoses were replaced. The problem is I replaced the hoses two days ago. I have the receipt for the hoses and the date they were purchased. It upsets me that these installers took advantage of a elderly women {my mother}. How many times do these installers do this?

Wow! Where do I begin? This is not the Sears that I grew up knowing. The dependable, USA owned Sears, whose appliances were made in America and reliable. On January 17, 2015 I bought a Sears Elite 250 refrigerator. We paid $1,115.78 including hoses etc. This appliance was purchased for a rental condo that we own. A month after installing the refrigerator a guest called to say that the refrigerator was leaking when the filtered water dispenser was used. Since then we have had three appointments with Sears contractors to come and fix the problem. The first time they called a few days prior to reschedule the appointment. The guests could not accommodate the times available. I called to schedule a new appointment after those guests left. The appointment was to occur with-in a four hour period on February 17, 2015. When I scheduled the appointment I confirmed my phone # and the address of service several times. On the service day I went to the condo, arriving before the scheduled 4 hour period. 6 hours after I arrived my phone rang. It was the service company. They were not at the service address....instead they were at my home address. Once again no service to my brand new refrigerator. About a week later we received a call saying that the refrigerator was leaking badly. I had to get a private company to come in and turn the water off to the refrigerator. This company told me that a valve was missing from the back of the refrigerator. They put the valve on but recommended, since the refrigerator was under warranty, the water continue to be off until Sears could get out and look at it. Since this is a rental unit, they were worried that if the water continued to leak the whole condo would flood. I called Sears again. Explained the problem and scheduled a repair appointment. This time I made sure the address and phone number were correct. This appointment was supposed to happen on April 13, 2015 from 8 to 12. I was given the name of the contracted company by Sears so I could call and confirm the day of. The morning of April 13th I called and left a message on the answering machine of the contracted company. At 2:00 I called Sears again....they explained that the contractor would not be coming because they didn't fix refrigerators. WHAT! Why did I have to call them? Could someone not call me to tell me? Once again, this is a brand new refrigerator. I now have another appointment. I am not confident that they will show. What happened to the SEARS I knew? No wonder they are almost in bankruptcy. Does anyone care? I have been a loyal customer. When we bought this appliance we had choices, but decided that Sears deserved our business because of it's history. Big mistake. I will not make it again. The water is still off and my guests are still inconvenienced. This is service at it's worst.

On April 4,2015 I bought a wash machine. I made this purchase at Sears in Florence, South Carolina. Unfortunately, your worker bought out the wash machine without the hose that was paid for at the time of the purchase. Though this seems like a quick fix (by getting the hose), and didn't act that way! To resolve the problem, I would appreciate your worker come and pick up the wash machine and sears return my money back. I don't even want to consider the washer anymore.
I look forward to your reply and a resolution to my problem. I will wait until Friday 10,2015 by 5:00pm before seeking third-party assistance.

This is a copy of the email I sent to them... I bought my first new washer, dryer, fridge and stove from your store at Coquitlam Centre. Here’s my experience: I received the delivery date & was excited as it was my first new appliances ever. I was told before 5 p.m. on that day. I had everything ready for them. I had unhooked and pulled out the old washer, dryer, fridge and stove and taped them so they wouldn’t open. I was charged a fee for their removal. The delivery guys came right at 5 p.m.. Fine. I tried to show the elder of the two the best place to park and unload. There is a slope so I knew where the best place was. He wouldn’t listen. Instead he spoke(I think Italian) to his younger partner. I told them to speak English(didn’t take). They parked the truck facing down on the slope and I thought...this is not good and told them so.

They came up and took away the old ones and that went well. The older guy kept complaining about how he had all these other deliveries after mine that evening. How tired they were. My intercom went off and I was told that there was a “scratch” on the dryer. I went down to look and the “scratch” turned out to be the top of the dryer was completely buckled. It fell off the back of the truck. The guy tried to tell me it was no big deal and Sears would give me a discount. I was very angry at this point. I refused delivery of this. The guys are still speaking Non-English to each other and I am getting really pissed. They brought up the new washer & the old dryer. No offer of connecting even one of them. I had to drag them-on carpet- into my closet and hook them up myself. That’s fine-but a little customer service would have been nice. Not Finished. The older guy kept trying to get me to sign the okay on the delivery without bothering to check any walls etc. I told them how mad I was and got no apologies from them.

As soon as I could I phoned your customer service and told them what happened. I was really upset. A new delivery was set up to receive a undamaged dryer. I told her that I did not want the same delivery people. I had to wait a few weeks which was annoying. The new delivery was as it should have been. The two guys even hooked the the dryer for me. I was surprised that your customer service didn’t bother to call me to see if everything went all right. That would have been nice. The first delivery guys represent your company. Their bad service is on Sears. Is it worth saving money in this way? THAT WAS THE DELIVERY EXPERIENCE.

Now, the product experience. The Samsung washer and dryer work quite well. I am happy with them. Your store product Kenmore-is garbage. The Range: First time I used the oven cleaning operation it burnt the top of the open door . It cleans the oven very, very poorly. the burner coils burn unevenly and poorly. Difficult to clean over-all. I dropped a spoon on the top and it chipped the coating. My fault-but should that have happened so easily?! Other-all a major disappointment. Now, The Kenmore fridge-is disappointing
the plastic border around the shelves cracked. I had to duct-tape it. There should be something supporting the shelves-obviously poor construction. My fault-for not noticing-the drawers were too small. I had had many old appliances in my past and the majority of them worked a lot better than your new Kenmores. Am I careless with them-no I’m not.

Why am I complaining now? I look at these appliances daily. I know it won’t make any difference to you-Sears-but it may help me feel a little better. Of course I will never step foot in a Sears store as long as I live. Or recommend. Sounds dramatic but there it is. Would you? I lived in BC all my long life and, in the past, always heard and experienced good things from Sears-until this. I didn’t think I could lose by buying Kenmore products. I was wrong and now I have no trust in Sears. If it was just the delivery issue then I would have simply a bad taste in my mouth- but wouldn’t be anti-Sears now. Maybe-which I doubt-this email will make a sliver of a difference. I do not expect a response also, I looked at the BBB and various forums regarding Sears Canada. If I would of done that first I wouldn’t have wasted my time on this email. Lots of horror stories worse than mine. I had no idea. Again, this is to make me feel better...

I own a smooth top slide in stove purchased from Sears some years ago. I have kept this range in perfect condition through-out this time. We have had maintenance insurance with all the products purchased from Sears. Recently their was an incident with smooth top glass creating a crack damage. The sears technician arrived on a second trip and examined product, took a photo and displayed to his authorized personnel, and stated that nothing could be done as repair or replacement of top because it was not due to manufacture default. Why do we pay insurance on these products? We have been Card holders with Sears for approximately twenty years plus, Sears has always shown loyalty to their customers, and pride in reference to their products. In speaking with your representatives by phone they gave us no satisfaction. Also please not that of-course this particular smooth-top part has been discontinued or not available, we wonder why? We like Sears products but your insurance coverage does not make sense. Is their any possibility of us purchasing another stove with a reasonable discount. Please respond, Thank You.

I have been a customer with the Sears automotive for a few years. This morning I drove to the Sears at University Mall (half hour from my house) for my oil change and was told I would have to have an appointment before I could get one (I have never had to call before - so I didn't think about calling this time). I was told that they have been doing this since last November which isn't true because I had an oil change in December and nothing was said. I then went to the Elkhart Sears and was told the same thing - they will do one as soon as I make an appointment. I don't have that much time off during the week so it's always worked out really well and I really trusted the mechanics at Sears. I guess I will be looking for a new place to do business since I feel a big let down from Sears but I do want you to know that your service was always great up until now. thanks.

Tried to order a replacement power washer hose for a unit that is less than two years old according to date on the decal on the sprayer. Thisbhose is "obsolete" now. Sears parts people swore they had the right hose, lady taking order, so they shipped it. Turned out to be the wrong hose. Now "I" have to waste my Damn time going to ups and send back to get my money. No other recourse apparently. The lady taking my order must get paid by the parts she moves. So, I got on line and found the correct hose ate parts.com in Utah. They had some in inventory. I guess, with Sears having trouble I will just quit buying from them. Went the same BS trying to get an axle seal kit for my Sears riding lawn mower. Took them three attempts before they finally sent the right part after me giving the the part kit number. That's why I think their people get paid by the parts orders they fill. Any way, I done with Sears and craftsman.

I ordered a portable air conditioner on line from Sears.. The unit was the wrong size for my needs. Took unit back to local sears store, and was told ,it was not their item and they would not take it back. They said it was a third party order. The third party company wants me to pay to ship it back and pay a huge re-stocking fee. All of which adds up to more than a hundred dollars. I bought this unit from Sears, because I thought I could trust their name. The third party company was not helpful at all.( Living Direct). I am a very disappointed Sears customer, Help.

Refrigerator went out in the evening of 3/17, call early on 3/18 for repaid. Technician came out on that day but would not look at the refrigerator because we had unplugged it. When on the phone with my husband I could hear the technician yelling in the background. Called again late 3/18 and got appt for 3/19. Technician came out, diagnosed the problem and said he would order part. The part apparently was not ordered right away because was not prepared for shipment until 3/23 at 9:56 PM, was not picked up by UPS until 3/25 !:00 AM. for delivery 3/26. Was involved in an accident at 4:00 AM which delayed delivery to 3/27 and was received too late for appt on 3/27. Now cant get confirmed appt until Thursday, April 2. which be over 2 wks without refrigerator. Seems due to the circumstances that our appt could be prioritized but I guess not. Have never had this issue with Sears in the past . It has become very frustrating and stressful plus the inconvenience and expense of having to keep 3 ice chests full of ice daily. I have been in customer service for 50 years and know that there is always a way to take care of the customer if you card.

Tried calling your Manitowoc Wi. store on 03/28/2015 numerous times during store hours and nobody picked up the phone.

2/24/15 refrigerator started to leak from the front. Service man came and said it was the drip pan and ordered one mean while he shut off ice maker. After 2 weeks the drip pan came and another service man came saying it was not the drip pan but a valve. Her replaced the valve on 3/5/15 and the minute he left it started to leak again. I called service and issued a complaint on 3/6/15 made another service for 3/19/15 Service man called and said he could not come make another appointment. Service man came on 3/24/15 with his hands in his pockets no tools. Hr refused to move the refrigerator unless I signed some kind of release form. Which I AGREED UNDER DERESS. He comes with a blank piece of paper and wants me to signed it. I said to him you think I'm STUPID. He ran out of the house. I called sears complaints while on the phone he comes returns with the same paper but filled in with damages to my floor or cabinets. At this point he started to go to work. He wasted forty-five minutes creating havoc instead of working. Refrigerator is working after replaced another valve. Please I contracts for all appliances with Sears, please do not send this man back in my house.

After contacting Sears helpline (on 3 occasions) requesting guidance/assistance on how to purge the air from the water system connecting the factory installed icemaker in our new Kenmore refrigerator/freezer it was determined that Sears would need to dispatch a technician to resolve the issue. The first appointment was scheduled to occur on 3/14/15 between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. After waiting around for 8 hours I contacted the helpline only to be informed that the technician may not be able to make it before 5:00 PM at which point I canceled the appointment and indicated I would need to reschedule. On Monday 3/16/15 I called to reschedule a service appointment specifically requesting a morning service call so as to minimize the impact it would have on my work schedule.

I was assured by the helpline technician that a morning appointment had been requested and that service would occur between the hours of 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM. At 11:30 AM I called the helpline to check the status only to be informed that the technician got a late start and my not be able to arrive before 4:00 PM. This is some of the worst customer service I have ever had the displeasure of enduring. Not only did I waste an entire Saturday waiting for a technician who did not have the decency to even call to inform me they would not be arriving within the 9 hour time slot, but now after taking off work to specifically be here to meet the technician today (3/17/16), I am again being informed by the helpline that my second appointment will likely not occur within a timely manner (if at all) again today. I sincerely hope that Sears management looks into the poor customer service being granted to their customers living in the 15542 zip code.

I ordered a circuit board for my Kenmore refrigerator. Sears took my money and promised delivery. On delivery date I called because I didn't have the part. I was told my order was cancelled and the only way I could Et the part was to have a Sears come to my home to do the service. They refused to sell me the part.

Appointment was set to repair my washer. The appointment date was set for 3/14/15 with a window from 3pm-6pm. At 6:03 pm, I called Sears customer service because the technician had not yet arrived. I was told not to worry as the tech ran late on a prior appointment. At 6:56pm, I called Sears customer service again as the tech still had not arrived. I was yet again told that the tech would be arriving soon and a call would be placed to the tech to call me to provide a status. At 7:47pm. I called Sears yet again to check and was surprisingly informed that the technician took it upon himself to RESCHEDULE my appointment without so much as a courtesy call to me. After being on the phone with Sears for over an hour, the only constellation given was an "apology" and and offer to keep the appt set by tech. This was my 1st experience with Sears..horrible is putting it mildly.

This grill -Kenmore Gas Fired Grill. Model# 148.16154211l was purchased New June 2013 at Sears--KCMO. I paid almost $500.00 for the grill. We pulled out to use this past week and the metal under the burners, above the propane tank rusted, fell spart. This is a large peice of metal goes the length of the grill. The outside of the grill and other parts are all fine. The drip pan is fine, but the sheet of metal that protects and sits under the burner rusted. It is breaking into a million rusted pieces. I can't even move it without pirces falling wverywhere. I can't use my grill for fear of the propane tank exploidiing. There is no reason why a grill that is only 2 years old would rust like this and only 1 part of the entire grill. I called Sears was told to call toll free # 1-800-469-4663. They told me I would have to pay for any repairs and or service call. This is a manafuture defect. The rest of the grill is OK and not sure if the part can even be ordered. If so at what cost to me.? I paid a large sum of money for a grill I can't use and just proves things made in China are sub standard. I have always had confidence in Sears and no problems before. This time it is provong very difficult. I want my grill repaid at no charge or replaced at no charge.

February 22, 2015, I purchased a Nordic Track Treadmill...total cost $2063.72. The Sears Associate, Janet Houston, gets a rating of 110....she was awesome!!!!! Delivery and setup is another world...a troubled world! I have made 13 calls in the past two days trying to make sure my delivery was coming on 2-26-15. I rearranged my entire life for that delivery........as of this minute (11:00 a.m. CST) I still have not spoken to anyone that knows where my order is and if it is going to be delivered....ever!!!! Salescheck # is 0138610611333.

I also purchased an IFIT WIFI Module and membership to go with the treadmill ( cost: $109.24). I would have rated zero stars above but the star was already lit and I could not turn it off! If Sears expects to be successful and stay successful, Customer Service MUST be 110% across the board......especially Delivery and setup....Being courteous to your customers is so simple. However, it pays big rewards to Sears. I am so very unhappy and disappointed with this Sears' Delivery!!!!!!!!! This will be my last purchase from Sears. I pray I get my treadmill today!!!!!!!!! I made this purchase at the Sears in Rivergate Mall in Goodlettsville, TN 37072. I wait for your reply.

On Friday, February 20 I was at your Robinson Town Center loacation in Pittsburgh, PA. I was buying 2 pairs of gloves. When I got to the checkout, the swipe machine was not really working properly and I had to keep reswiping. Eventually it worked but it also gave me $40.00 cash back. I told the cashier I did not ask for that and did not want it....I wanted it to remain in my account. He said that he couldn't do that and I had to take the cash. Again, I told him I did not want cash back. He called his manager over and that man was extremely rude ! He said there was no way to void the transaction and redo it and I had to take the $40.00.

AGAIN, I told him I wanted the cash put back into my account and wanted to pay only for the gloves. If I had wanted cash back, I would have asked for it. He rudely said to me that if I didn't want the cash taken out of my account I could go into the4 mall and find a MAC machine and put it back in the account. It was the way he said it that really ticked me off. He was rude and nasty and felt it was my responsibility to take care of the situation. If your machine was not working properly, it should not have been in service, but the cashier told me it always does that. So why was this still active? What if that money wasn't in my account and it made my account have a negative balance? This should not be happening and I can assure you I will not shop in your store again. RUDE AND DISCOURTEOUS

I ordered snow-blower parts from sears parts dept. three weeks ago. I was told it should have been delivered in 5 to 7 days. I haven't received them yet, the parts dept. keeps telling me that they will forward the UPS tracking number via my email address. Every time I call they keep telling that they the order has been filled and they will forward the the UPS tracking via email. I called a few minutes ago and got the same response. The order has been completed and they'll let me know when the tracking number is available.Apparently the order was completed on February 6 but I'm still waiting for the tracking. Every week they keep telling me that I should get it on Friday but the days pass without receiving the parts. For the last three weeks they keep telling me I should get it by Friday. So that's three Fridays in a row.

If the parts were forwarded near February 6th there is no reason that the UPS tracking number shouldn't be available. Also the cost of the parts have probably already been charged to my sears credit card and I would like to have a refund issued and charged when I actually received the parts. Please be assured that I will be cutting my sears credit card when this ordeal is finally over. It is no wonder that sears is heading for bankruptcy. A disappointed customer who will no longer be shopping at sears.

I was not informed there would be $154 labor to install two tires. This is outrageous. I can take the same tires and have them installed at a local tire store for $18. I'll buy the other two tires, but I will not have Sears put them on my car. We have bought appliances, bedding, clothes, lawn mowers, tools and more. Never again. I now know why Sears is going out of business.

60

In September of 2010 I purchased four tires from a Sears Auto Center. The installation went fine and the service was great (at least I thought so at the time). Fast forward to January 2012...I have now had the tires on my Lexus IS250 for 15 months. I drive in to a Sears Auto Center in Chicago to have a flat repaired. The technician reviews the information they have for my car in their system and proceeds to tell me that the Auto Center that innitally installed these tires put the wrong size tires on my car.

He proceeds to tell me that I have to replace them immediatly because it may cause damage to the car and may even be unsafe to drive. The sales associate tells me that they will replace the tires at a minimal cost to me since it was their mistake. This story changes and I am then told that I need to "drive back to Indiana" to have this issue resolved. Concerned that I am driving an unsafe car due to the wrong size tires being installed I tell tehm to replace the tires with the correct size thinking that I will simply call their corporate office for resollution. Simple enough, right??? Wrong.

After four weeks of being put through a ridiculously complicated complaint process I am stuck with a $600 bill for replacing tires due to their error. I had been a Sears customer for nearly 20 years. This rellationship is now over. It's no wonder why this company has been performing as badly as it has been.

We bought our refrigerator from Sears about 2-1/2 years ago and loved it until recently. Our kitchen laminate floor has been ruined because of a leaking water valve from the icemaker which we were unaware of until a floor inspector came to our home and told us the floor was lumping up because of a leak, probably from our refrigerator. When we pulled out out refrigerator, there was a puddle of water which had never shown up to the front of our refrigerator. Our floor had a 20 year warranty which they would not cover because of the leaking refrigerator. To add to our dismay, a Sears repair man said the part to be replaced was a water valve costing $90.00 and the installation would cost a total of $279.00. For a refrigerator only 2-1/2 years old causing such an excessive repair plus replacing the kitchen floor, I am quite disappointed with my LG . In addition to our kitchen floor we will have to add a new floor to our dining room floor since they no longer have the same laminate pattern any longer and our dining room is connected to our kitchen with the same laminate pattern. I was thinking of purchasing a new LG washer soon. However, I will think twice about making another LG purchase. Sincerely. Rosemary Osborne

Sears has been a trusted company to my family for years and I'm disappointed and heart broken over the horrible customer service I received during the time I needed experts. I was apprehensive about allowing Sears to install my garage after an earlier experiencing with the horrible communications between the technician and customer service staff approximately two months ago. I decided to use Sears again because I have a credit card with them and felt it would be easier; FAR from being TRUE!!! The Technician came out on TuesdayApril 30, 2013 and stated he couldn't fix the garage at that time because he needed additional materials (my car remained stuck in my garage for the fourth day, plus I missed half of a day work). I assumed because the technician did the estimation and assessment on Tuesday, Wednesday work would be done without any issues. I was advised that the technician would be at my residence from 10-12; the technician got to my house at approximately 1:30 on wednesday April 22, 2013. Prior to the late arrival of the technician, I called the Sears 5-6 times speaking to manager Tim who was very rude, accusatory and unprofessional. Per Tim, I should have known it would be around 12 because of the two hour window that guarantees that. After 12 and speaking to Tim again, I was very irate because he proceeded to telling me that the technician had a job in Austell and was stuck on Interstate 285; in addition to the technician picking up the door from Norcross that morning. At that point I knew Tim was lying to me and patronizing me because manage Sally informed me on one my calls that the door was picked up on Tuesday evening (managers lying to customers just to shut them up....the integrity and faith I have in Sears has diminished to nothing). I called back again before the arrival of the technician and was informed by Sally that she was about to put her sneakers on and walk to Tim's office to advise him of my displeasure with him (another lie). I called to obtain the number from customer service representative in another department the president of Sears number...I will be sending the CEO and all the board members a letter of dissatisfaction, in addition to Louis. When the work was compled the technician advised me the price was $852.00 which was the incorrect price because Sally told me on Tuesday the total was $623.00...I am appalled on how Sears is now in the business of deceiving and ripping innocent customers off. I feel so violated and hurt...I don't have the time or money to be taken for granted and taken advantage of. I will also send the Better Business Bureau and Clarke Howard, customer advocate a letter regarding these issues so no other customer would feel like me.

I ordered a refrigerator online on Nov 19th. To make sure that the order was processed correctly, I phoned and spoke to a gentleman to make sure that the model I had chosen would come with an ice maker and a right hand door, and that my old fridge would be removed. A few days later, the fridge was delivered, without an ice maker and with a left hand door.

Also, I was never told that a fridge with an ice maker requires a plumber to disconnect it, so as a result my old fridge was left in my kitchen along with the new one. I managed to get a plumber to come in 20 minutes to disconnect my old fridge; however it took over 10 phone calls and 4 full days of waiting for the old fridge to actually be picked up!!

It took a total of 8 phone calls to get the door reversed on the new fridge. And, three service calls!!

The first time a service person came I was told that it would cost me $125.00 to make the change. I had been told by a sales rep that the change would only cost $25.00. So, in desperation to get the thing done, I told the service technician that I would pay that amount if necessary and argue about it later. At that point, the technician advised me that he could not do it anyway as there was a part missing!!

I waiting a few more days and finally got another visit from the same technician who then asked me if UPS had delivered a part. I asked him what part was he talking about as other people had told me that there was no part required to switch the door. He refused to elaborate. I asked him to please just switch the door so it opened on the right side. He told me he could not do it without this mysterious part. He left again.

He phoned me twice in that afternoon to inquire if UPS had arrived with the part he needed. At 4 p.m. he stopped calling and I had to again phone and talk to several people to attempt to get another appointment!! After being hung up on a few times, I finally reached a person who advised me that the whole problem could be blamed on the french speaking Montreal office!! No explanation what had actually occurred etc. but I have always been polite to innocent people just doing their jobs.

In total, I have had to spend hours contacting Sears and had to wait 3 days for service calls without getting the problem solved. Today, another technician arrived in a Sears truck (the other guy was sub contracted as the truck did not say Sears0 and he changed the doors with no problem and no mysterious part that never arrived and was never needed in the first place!!! About the ice maker, I could not tolerate trying to get that delivered!!

I have been a loyal Sears customer for over 40 year. I have purchased appliances for my rental properties, relatives, my own cottage and all my Xmas gifts. If this is not settled to my satisfaction, I never intend to deal with Sears again,. I would like to have at least $200. taken off the price of this fridge as my time and the amount of irritation caused by this ridiculous situation is worth much more than that. i would appreciate a response. This is the second complaint that I have written to Sears about this situation. No reply came from my first complaint.

Sears wanted to be like Amazon, however they are falling short. Recently placed an order online when in the store to one of the market vendors on their web site. They have not delivered, Sears do not have their company information and Sears do not want to give me my money back even though I placed the order on their web site. Sears has a lot to learn in customer service when it comes to web based business. I will still continue the fight to get my money back but no one is like amazon out there... I am going to stick to amazon forget about Sears.

I ordered a new washing machine (mine went kaput) on and was confirmed for next-day delivery. No call, no email, no delivery. I called and was told there was a delay in the warehouse and it would absolutely be delivered on (today). This morning at 9:00 AM we received a call that the washer would be delivered between 12-2:00 PM. Again, no call, no email, no delivery. I am on the phone right now being told that there is no inventory in the warehouse at all and the next available delivery date will "possibly" be this Saturday. Unbelievable!

And now I've been on hold waiting for a supervisor for over 15 minutes. On their website under Customer Service they actually have the nerve to say "Sears is dedicated to providing our customers with a superior level of service." That is a joke!!

I bought a pair of dress shoes at Sears about 5 months ago I wear these shoes about once a week. So the shoes have been worn about 20 times the sole of one of the shoes fell completely off . I brought into a Sears store and was told that there was nothing they could do after 90 days.

I asked to speak with a Manager and even after showing her there was absolutely no wear to the soles or to the shoe itself she said there was nothing she could do. I could understand if the shoe appeared to be worn but this was not the case.

After 20 plus years as a Sears customer and card holder and most likely having spent at least $10,000 or more over that period, I will cut up my Sears credit card and take my business elsewhere in the future to a store that will stand behind their products they sell.

We bought a Samsung high end washer and dryer from Sears two years ago. The dryer is fine, but the $1800 washer is a dud. We are on our second water pump because the machine would not drain the water in the washer. It also gives a signal to the computer if the water is not filled to the normal use for a cycle, yet the machine tries to start, but then plays the music recorded for the washer computer, that drives you crazy. It is always singing in error. So, our computer had problems and needed replacement also. Other parts were installed by the Sear's technician as well. One of the technicians who serviced our washer said his wife did not like the top loader; two complicated and breaks down often.

They went back to the old style washing machines, which are hard to find, but do exist in a reconditioned machine. We have a warranty until sometime in 2012, but we would like to Craiglist these machines now, but if you have a conscience, you would not want your worst enemy to own a top loader Sear's machine, no matter what the brand. That is it for me with Sears, unless they replace the machine with a new one, because ours could have been a lemon, maybe. Now I hear Sear's is going to file Chapter 11 in the next year or so," so goodbye yellow brick road top loader, the dogs of society are howling. You can't put me in your top loader, I going back to my plow."

As I know with all american businesses, this complaint will fall on deaf ears. But here goes, I have been purchasing product from your Sears store in Rancho Cucamonga, California. for past several years, I and my spouse have purchased all our vision needs. My last purchase was less than a year ago in optical, the frames broke while cleaning them and scratched lens. your rep says,"sorry we can`t do anything about that". I`ll have to shell out $130.00 to replace lens, which i already shelled out over $300.00 for. So just in case you don`t see myself or my spouse in any Sears store (anywhere ) again, Its because of the way you treat your customers. I guess you know how much we all care about your store closeures now , huh!!!

Today I took my vehicle to the Sears Auto center in Hyannis, Mass at the Cape Cod Mall, to have a shimmy in my car looked at. I was told that they would look at the car and call me with what the car needed for repairs. A few hours later I received a call from Kevin saying that I needed routers in the back, routers in the front, new pads in the rear and front, I needed the emergency cable and pad replaced along with a tire that had a nail in it. They told me that the left rear Router had three cracks and that the total repair would be somewhere in the 890's range.

I asked them to just do the rear router and fix the tire and they stated that they could not do that. If they touched the car and replaced anything they would have to do all the breaks it was the "law". I asked him if that was the cause of the shimmy that I felt and he said "yes". I told him that I could not afford to do all that work, 900.00 was too much for me at this time. He said he would speak to his manager about just trying to take care of the shimmy.

He came back to the line and I was told No. I told him I would be down to pick up the car, I would not make any repairs at this time. Upon arriving back to the store to gather my car, which was a Chevy Tahoe The gentleman behind the counter said my bill was 897.00 I stated to him I didn't have any work done and that this was not my bill. He went into the back and got "Kevin" to come out who then told me that they repaired the one tire and it would be a charge of 24.00 I paid that Bill and proceeded out to my car. Immediately I noticed that the front drivers tire rim had been changed. I went back into the store and ask why the rim was different and I was told that they took off my space tire and placed that in the front to make the car "more balanced" and they either put the bad tire with the nail in it under the car where the spare goes or in the back.

I accepted this although not happy that the time had not been taken to change the rim on the tire that I paid 24.00 for. I got back to the car, to find the car dead. Unable to start. No power to the car at all. By this point I am not happy. I go back into the store and tell the clerk that the car does not start and I am not happy about this. A gentleman comes out of the back that I had not seen before, goes out to the car and tries to start it. It does not start. He comes back in and gets a jump start and preceded to jump start my car.

And begins to tell me all about how GM sucks and that they changed this and that and when they put it on the Diagnostics system it kills the battery. The best thing I could do is drive it for about 45 minutes to charge the battery up and it should be fine as long as my battery was not old. He was rude and unsympathetic to the situation. I got into my car that he had pulled up to the curb and I was unable to keep the car running. It stalled at every stop light, stop sign for almost 30 min, Being so upset at this point I take the car to Midas to have them test drive the car and explain to me what is wrong without telling them anything about what Sears said is wrong with the car.

The service man takes me out to the garage and shows me the rather large bubble in the right rear passenger side tire. Where the belt was broken. He had done a break inspection and found the crack that sears had stated, and also found no issues with the from routers and pads. Suggested to turn the routers would be helpful. They replaced the two rear tires, One of which was the spare now, and replaced the back routers, and pads along with windshield wipers, and repaired the back windshield wiper for 858.00.

Your company would have charged me the 898.00 and would have not solved the problem as to why I was there. This is unacceptable to me, and unfair business practices. I have used Sears for years and I am truly disappointed with the level of service at this store. I could not have been more upset to feel like I was being taken advantage of. They tried to get me to do repairs that were unnecessary, and I would have left without the problem being resolved. I would like my 24.00 refunded to me immediately that I paid for the tire repair, of which they just put the spare on. Where is there any repair? I could have used my AAA for that! I am truly disappointed in your services.

I am so upset and disappointed, first I was told my Craftsman Snow Thrower couldn't be attached to my Craftsman Riding Mower after talking to 8 different operators, just to be told I would have to buy the newer model. Then I told them I had some problems w/ my mover and made an appointment for 4 days later. Then you guys cancelled my appointment. I needed this done ASAP. So I then contacted my local lawn mower service, and was told that the snow thrower could be attached. So I had him install the attachment and in the process he noticed more wrong with the mower and it needed to be fixed so I had him do it and now SEARS won't cover it! This is not fair, you said it couldn't be done and cancelled on me and when I called back to reshcedual I had to speak to 5 different operators and was put on hold for 17 minutes just to be hung up on. This is a bunch of bull.

Hi, Thursday morning before black Friday I purchased $175 in gift cards at a local giant eagle groceries store. The gift cards, a total of 3, were for sears. I bought the gift cards to purchase a Samsung galaxy 7" tablet. On sale from $250 to $178. I sat in the sears store for hours, prior to the 4am sale began. Once the sale hit at 4am I proceeded to check out. When the sears employee swiped my gift cards he notified me that they read a balance of 0 dollars. I called the grocery store corporate office, and they called sears card services. Sears cards services acknowledged that they some how erased the balance, and that they would return the money back to the cards within 5 business days. The problem is I spent hours on the pg one trying to request the tablet at the same sale price as what I waited in the stores hours for, and out of the 3 people I spoke to they all say there's absolutely nothing they can do for me and that that price is only available during black Friday. I realize that. But it was to the fault of sears that I was unable to purchase the item at sales price. Now the tablet can only be bought at full retail price. I bought an entire homes appliances at sears, and this will

I went to Sears Store #02104 in St Clairsville OH, on 9/24//12, to exchange a wet and dry vac for filters. When I arrived in that dept., the sales assoc. was walking toward the end of the store. When she returned, I found out that she had gone for a price check for the only customers at the counter, which was a man & woman that were together. This transaction took quite a few minutes. I waited patiently for my turn. When she was done, I asked for her help to find the correct product I was supposed to purchase. When we returned to the counter there was another woman & man, who were together, at the counter. In stead of her ringing me out, she went to those people and started to ring up their purchase. Leaving me to wait again. I was insulted that she would put my business behind these other customers. When I had waited patiently for the customers before me. Please note that she did not attempt to wait on me when she returned to the counter from the previous customers. As I would not have expected her to.

I immediately interrupted her from waiting on those people and demanded that she continue waiting on me. She said to me that they were waiting. I said so was I and how dare her push me aside. She then called for someone else to come over to wait on the other customers. This again was not done for me previously. I asked another associate to call a manager so I could report the treatment I had just received. A Supervisor Jim Duncan showed up and listened to my complaint. I explained to him that I felt insulted and possible discriminated against as both of the other customers were Caucasian: and I am African American. I said to him, I am not positive that it is discrimination or if she was just being mean. But it was not fair.

I gave my complaint to Jim Duncan and left my phone number for him to give me a call to confirm that the issue was addressed. I told him I realize you can not tell me what you done, but I would like to know that the issue was addressed. I would not want anyone else to be mistreated as I was. To be honest I walked away with very little expectation that anything would be done by Mr. Duncan. I must have been right because it has been almost a month now and I have not received a phone call. I would have expected that Mr. Duncan should have asked for my personal information so he could respond to me about the results opposed to me having to volunteer my information and ask him to contact me. I also asked him to check the cameras and he would be able to see and confirm the experience I had told him about.

I would appreciate a sincere response to this hurtful treatment I experienced in the Sears store. I can be reached at lrtree9@yahoo.com or 304-232-2880, if you have any questions or would like any additional information.

Thank you,

On Dec 2 2012 I visited your store in Irondequoit New York. I purchased several men's shirts, which cost me approximately $56. I paid for the shirts with a gift card, balance of approximately $15, and by credit card, $41.58.

The shirts were not the right fit so I returned them about a week later to the same store. Allegedly the clerk gave me a full refund, consisting of a new gift card for the $15 and a credit on my Mastercard. Two days ago I revisited the same store to buy a belt. I presented the gift card and was told it had not been "activated." I walked out without buying the belt and later that day called the store manager. She asked me for the return receipt.

Unfortunately I did not keep it, thinking that the refund at a store of Sears size and reputation had been properly processed. My mistake. The manager then asked for the date of the refund. Not recalling the exact date, I said I would call my bank and get the date the $41.58 went back on my card. I called and lo and behold my bank informed me I did not have any credit from Sears on my account. I figure one of two things transpired.

The clerk processing the return was incompetent and unknowningly activated some other gift card and credited some other person's credit card. If true, this does not reflect well on Sears training. Or the clerk deliberately took these steps for her personal gain, stealing from you and me. I suspect the latter. I do not know if you can ever identify the clerk.

I do know I am out of pocket $56. I ask you to send me a gift card for this amount.

We purchased a Samsung microwave on 1/3/13 at the Palmdale, CA Sears store. At time of purchase we paid 561.48 which included a $10.00 fee for removal of our previous microwave.

The delivery and installation person refused to take the large box our new microwave came in. He did remove the old microwave and we feel he should have taken the box as well.

When a call was made to customer service at the local Sears store, that individual hung up on my husband (I feel that person was not aware of Sears policy and did not want to take the time to find out.)

I filed a warranty repair claim weeks ago for a GE Profile Series Microwave. After filing the claim through 888-518-7208 a Technician came the first time for the appointment scheduled between 1:00PM and 5:00PM and the technician had the courtesy to at least call me at 832-885-8111 and tell me he was running late but he came,

Upon arrival he diagnosed the problem, ordered the part and I paid via Visa Credit Card, $55.00 and he instructed me to call the 888-518-7208 and schedule for a technician to come back and make the repair.

I called the 888-518-7208 and a technician was scheduled to come back between 1:00PM and 5;00PM and showed up a little after 3:00PM and was here less than 5 minutes and said, "I cannot do it by myself, you need to call and reschedule and I can come back with a assistant.

We called last week on Tuesday and scheduled a 1:00PM to 5:00PM appointment on Thursday and no one came or called.

I then called this week on Tuesday to complain and reschedule, and was told that today 04/11/2013 that the technicians would be here between 1:00PM and 5:00PM, my wife was here waiting before 1:00PM, at 2:30PM CST I took off work to pick our daughter up from school at 3:00PM, I called my wife to see if anyone had came or called and she said, "No", I then called the 888--518-7208 and checked on the status and was told that they were dispatched and coming.

At 3:15PM CST I arrived home at 1228 Delano Street, Houston, TX 77003, and waited until 4:30PM CST and called the 888-518-7208 service number and was told that the appointment had been cancelled. I asked why? I told you not only was someone there waiting but provided my number and my Wife's. They said the technician reported that he called and got no answer; however my phone number is ported to Google Voice as well as Corporate Phone Tracking and I checked everywhere no call to me or my wife.

Then I tried calling Legal at 800-475-1212 and no answer, I called the nearest Sears Store, less than a mile away and got hung up in twice, called back and asked to speak to a Supervisor and was put on hold, after 10 minutes and no answer I hung up.

It is 5:40PM CST and I have been on the phone for over a hour trying to get relief. I begged for someone to come today as after 3 total no shows I have lost faith, income, and been ran around until at 6:47PM CST I was told again that the earliest someone could come is this coming Monday, the fact that this problem has been going on for around a month.

I have a lengthy documentation of calls, as well as Conclusive Proof of call tracking that neither I or my wife was ever called during these repetitive "No Shows" and to have to wait AGAIN and not be able to have this request for service elevated is unprofessional and disrespectful.

At one point I was offered a $80.00 Sears Gift Card, which I declined and said, "I do not care if give me a $500.00 Gift Card, it is not about money from Sears, it is about the worst customer service I have ever experienced, and the fact that I am a Executive in a very high Tax Bracket who typically bills $250.00 a hour for my time, and I have had to not only take off work but literally spend hours on the phone trying to get this resolved.

If Sears has any integrity what so ever they will have someone here tomorrow not Monday. Prior to concluding my procession of phone calls for over 2 hours I told the person on the phone that this should have a Elevated Status and anytime tomorrow that some one can come I will make sure someone is here, to be told, "Sorry, we can try and put you on a waiting list but the AMAZING, "I HAVE YOU SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY BETWEEN 8:00AM CST AND 12;00PM CST.
There is no question in my mind why so many Sears Stores are Closing.

On Sunday 10/23/11 we went to Sears Tool Department at Southland Mall in Hayward, CA. My husband explained to the Sales Associate that our Garage door opener would not work, that it made a loud sound and then the chain snapped and the plastic pulley broke. The sales Associate asked me if I brought it I said no, that it was still installed in my garage. The sales associate ask if we had the receipt, my wife said we didn't know if we still had it, but we told the sales associate that we purchased it in November 2009.

I asked if I could bring it back and he said yes that he could credit back our Sears Credit Card. So I told him I wanted to upgrade to a belt driven versus a chain driven, the Sales Associate said ok and carried the belt driven garage door opener to the sales counter. We went home and removed the old one and installed the new opener. We took back the old Garage door opener and was advised my the sale associate he would need a managers permission to credit back our card.

One manager came and told us that she could not give us a refund, so we asked to speak to another manager, the second manager said she could not refund us the credit and we would have to contact the Service Company for Craftsman. After explaining over and over again that the Sales Associate told us that we could bring the old one back it did no good. Basically they all Lied to us.

I had a coupon for a $17.99 oil change. I took my 2010 Toyota Sienna in and left it. I got a phone call 45 min. later. He said his name was Roger and he could only put Synthetic oil in my car. The cost would be $70.00. He said it was in the owners manual that only synthetic oil could be used. I told him I would be back to pick up my car and he needed to show me what he was talking about in my owners manual. When I got there he was at the computer looking it up. My family owns 3 body shops in the Richmond and Williamsburg area. I am an estimator at our Midlothian Turnpike location. I know a little about cars. I think this Roger character thought I was just some dumb woman coming in for an oil change. I asked him to show me where it said I had to have synthetic oil and he said he would get his coworker to look. His coworker came over and said, "it's a Sequoia right?" I said no, a Sienna. He said, "in that case, it takes regualar oil". He didn't even know what kind of car I had but insisted I had to have synthetic oil. That is ridicuolous! He then told me to come back in an hour and it would be done. I told him no thanks. I do not want them to touch my car. I also could have sent work to them on occasion because we buy tires and need alignments done. I would NEVER send work there. The Chesterfield Town Center Sears Auto Center will not be getting business from me or our family owned business of Bruce's Super Body Shops.

I have been a somewhat regular Sear's Shopper for a good part of the Last 30 year's and I have NEVER seen such poor Managment Skill's demonstrated in my life. When you walk into the Store on Rice and University in St Paul, Mn. you are immediately drawn into an atmosphere of Repression from the Employee's, as you go from Dept to Dept you can actually witness Manager's talking down to the Staff and berating them in front of co-worker's and Shopper's. Now I understand in this Economy that Retailers are struggling with lagging sale's, but to take that out on Emploee's is inexecusable. I have inquired of some of the Employee's of their treatment and they are very hesitant to comment for fear of actual retaliation from their Superior's, from what I have seen most of the Employee's are of Minority Status and are younger. I did make some inquiries as to the name's of some of the most guilty Task Master's..... Store Manager is Dan Kaufman and it trickle's down from there to a young man named Mike to another named Lisa (Dept Mgrs?) they brood about the store snarling at Customer's and Staff alike. What I would like to know is what kind of education for training these Individual's have gone through and I would also like to know, when did Sear's start working against it's Employee's and the Communities where they are. Shame on Sear's for changing from an Establishment of Respect in the Community to one of pure dread to enter.

Purchased a washer and dryer floor model combination in October 2009 along with a 3-year maintenance agreement. I have the original Sears purchase receipt for the $3,221.54. Salescheck # 018640229475, Date 10/02/2009 pruchased at the Hunt Valley, MD Sears store. We called for service before the Maintenance Agreeement expired because the washer is not draining properly. On the first and second service visits, we were told that there is no Serial Number Sticker on the Washer, and therefore, they cannot order the part to fix the problem. Service claims that the Maintenance Agreement information at Sears, as well as the Sales records, do not include the Serial Number. Sears, they claim, keeps no record of the Serial Number. I talked to a Service Manager who told me that if the unit does not have a Serial number attached to it, they cannot service the unit. I did not remove the Serial Number. The matching machines have been under a service agreement for 3 years that cost me $199.99 at the time of purchase. I cannot understand why Sears would not have the Serial Numbers of the units on record. I, also, have no way to know if the original service tech removed or discarded the Serial Number sticker. I know I did not. Or, possibly, the sticker was removed at the store (both units were floor models).

First of all, you need agents that can speak and understand American English. Second, your delivery department needs to be a little more flexible about delivery. I have arrange to be home the majority of a day so that your delivery guys can be here all of 15 minutes to drop off a mattress!!!! However, there is about an hour during the morning I can't be here and no one can seem to work around that. If I understood her right, the agent barely spoke English, I won't get a call until the night before TELLING me when they will be here and if I can't be here during that whole 4 hour time frame (for a 15 minute delivery) then I have to reschedule and take another day off!!!!!!! WTH??? Not very customer service oriented, Sears!!! VERY disappointing!!!! And I won't be motivated to make any large purchases from you ever again!

I purchased a groupon for Sears. I let it expire because I decided I did not need the promotional item, and because the Groupon says the purchase price (not the promotional value) is always good for any goods or services offered by the merchant.

The Groupon itself guarantees a refund of the purchase price if the merchant fails to honor it "Period". I attempted to use the purchase value at Sears and it would not honor the Groupon for any value at all because the promotional value had expired. I

now have several emails from Groupon telling me the purchase price is good only toward the original promotion - in direct contradiction of the terms printed on the Groupon itself! The responses do not even attempt to explain this unilateral and retroactive change in the terms. Just too bad, so sorry.

Finally, they told me to go away and not bother them anymore.

I contacted the Sears Outlet Store in Hendersonville Tn about PTY 9000 mower that I fully intended to buy. The manager sent me pics to my phone, which was very nice. However, I was told that it was being sent off for service first and I would be contacted when it arrived back. It would be couple a weeks. I didn't wait that long, so I contacted them frequently, and was told that it hadn't arrived back yet. Now I can't get the manager to call me back and I was told that it was sold more than likely. The time frame was the middle of Dec when I first contacted them.

I am trying my best to find a Craftsman Profeesional mower that is withing driving distance of my location. The mower above fit my needs and it was withing driving distance. I'm frustrated because I have been watching the Sears Outlet website for several months and I finally found one, that was sold out from under me. There is another mower in West Palm Beach that I would like to have, but it's a 13 hr drive from upstate SC.

Please help find out where the mower went in Hedersonville, TN if possible, and I'll be more than happy to retract my complaint. I just want to know what actually happened.

I bought this bike November 2011. So far there have been three problems. The first was there were no screws to put it together. The second was the computer broke. The third was a broken belt. The first two comlaints I made directly to the manufacturer of the stationary bike, and received good service. But the broken belt was the last straw, and I requested warrenty service from sears, which I did. I was told I would hear from the repair company within two or three days.

I did not receive a call, so I called sears back, and was told again, I would hear from the repair company in two or thee days, but I did not hear. So I called the company directly and they sent me a new belt within a week, and I got my husband to replace it. It is now six weeks after my request for service from Sears, and finally I got a call from their repair company that they finally had the part and would come down and replace it.

I called Sears and said I had thought I was never going to get service, so I replaced it, and they cancelled my warrenty. This company, Sears, sure has a good method of getting out of servicing their products. I will never shop at Sears again, because other stores provide the same goods, and are much easier to deal with.

Refrigerator went out on Aug. 26, kept completely closed for 24 hours and reported it on Aug. 27. Unable to get commitment to fix appliance until Aug. 28, and told it would be fixed Sept. 5. Purchased maintenance agreement on numerous appliances and this is going to be a 10 day wait to repair.

After numerous calls to have fixed sooner Angie stated that the maintenance contract only states Sears will fix item, it does not necessarily mean in a timely manner. Angie stated she is a seasoned rep of 4 years and is very familiar with Sears policy. Actions such as this are totally unacceptable and I will pursue every avenue available to bring this to the attention of someone who cares and is able to act responsibly on it. I paid for a service which Sears is unable to properly provide, or just lacks the desire to do so.

I purchased a set of Michelin 80,000 mile tire for my Nissan Altima 2010. I have Sear rotate the tire and do the oil changes every three thousand miles. With in Ten month and 13,000 miles two of my tires were completely bald and the other two tires had 4/32 and 5/32 of tread. The manager said it was from aggressive driving? The car is a 4 door sedan with a 4 cylinder completely stock.

I told the manager that the car was driven normal and was front wheel drive and tire that were bad wore on the rear and my paper work shows from sears when they rotated them. The manger then said it was from excessive braking. I told him it had abs and it would be impossible to slide the tires .

I then asked him to check the pressure my tire were over inflated by sear by over three pounds and the car had been at sear for over three hour they had just serviced it. That why I went down there because he said they wouldn't rotate the tire because the back ones were so bad.

He said all he could do was replace the to back tires and that it void my entire replacement warranty for the whole set. On the warranty it states that over inflation voids the warranty and he still blamed me. This isn't a race car and his team had my tires over inflated . He told me that it was ok because no matter how hot tires get the pressure only increases by 10% I didn't know he was genius as well. I asked him if I could send the tires to michelin to be checked for defects he told me no and he wasn't either.

So when you by from Sears you better not get a tire the will last 80,000 miles because when it wears out in thirteen they will void your warranty by blame and there improper inflation statistics. I also contact Sears head quarters and they can even have someone higher up contact me. Beware of Sears you and your family are at great risk with their automotive experts. A corvette could wear out 80,000 mile tire in 13,000 mile may be 40,000 but in 13,0000 this is highway robbery.

By the way I have a 2005 nissan Altima 4 door with a four cylinder with the same exact tires from Sears and they have over 35,000 mile and they ate still like brand new and this car doesn't have Abs brakes. No matter the issue they tires ate faulty and that seats responsibility to honnor the warranty they sold me.

Made a purchase at sears.com, and used my sears rewards points. Only after the sale was complete, a disclaimer appeared that said this item was sold by a third party - marketplace, not sears. This means I cannot return a defective product to sears, and will have to pay to have it shipped back to marketplace. Sears should make this dirty tactic known at the beginning of the sale, not after it is complete and cannot be stopped. Since sears was bought out by k-mart, they have become a second-rate company. I purchased lifetime products like tape measures and snow shovels at premium prices. Sears has now discontinued at their discression, and will no longer honor their lifetime guarantee. Instead of a craftsman lifetime product, you are given a cheap item that could have been purchased for less money at another store like Big Lots or Lowe's.

I saw a great offer on Sears website for as mobile phone. Turned out it was too good to be true.

After making me call their security centre (2nd international call being for half an hour), they and securing my bank’s commitment to payment they then presented a range of excuses including a pricing error and blaming a 3rd party vendor. The vendor they blamed didn’t even receive my order which was placed with Sears (Sears also taking payment).

After that it was a series of minor disasters; My bank made me change the credit card as they insisted Sears transaction had exposed me to potential fraud; there was further expense of phone calls; many hours were wasted with over 40 emails; letters to the CEO and Sears Chairman were completely ignored.

What should you do it Sears appear to be offering a good deal? – My advice is very definitely to look elsewhere unless you have a lot of time on your hands, extra money to waste on expensive calls, aren’t worried about fraud on your credit cards and a thick skin to deal with a series of different “customer service” reps.

I bought a washer and dryer from Sears on Friday, Nov.23 2012. I paid $80 to have it delivered and set up. The delivery guy did what he was supossed to do. He set up the washer and drier and tested them. Once the delivery guy left, I noticed that the washer was leaking from the drain hose. This was at 12:00 noon. I called Sears and notified them of the problem. She told me that the tech would be back in about 1-2hrs. to fx the problem. At 4:30pm, no one ever showed up. I again contacted Sears. I spoke to 3 different people and stayed on the phone for 35min. I was given a $50 gift card for my inconvenience by email, which I have yet to receive. I was told that someone would contact me Sunday night to set up an appt. for Monday. Well, today is Monday and I was not contacted by sears. I once again contacted Sears myself. I was told that I had an appt. set up for Wed., Nov. 28. I didnt set up that appt. for Wed. and was told that there is nothing that they can do to get an earlier appt. No one can come out to fix the problem any earlier than that. I can not do any laundry. It is very frustrating that I was suposse to have a brand new waher on Sat., that works. And today is Wednesday and still no fuctioning washer, and probably wont have a working washer until Wednesday. When I contacted the complaint dept., I was told that I can not file a complaint because the washer is not on my file and they probably can not set up an appt. until the waher is on my file. This is a cluster, you know what. I am very angry and dissatisified. Tracy Dore'

i took my van to sears today in hilo, hawaii to get a simple oil change and replace the windshield wipers. i got there @ 7:00 am and the guy said that everyone was out sick and only had one mechanic on duty. after i paid my bill of 74.83, they gave me the keys to my vehicle and i drove home approx 6 miles, with my windows rolled up and the air conditioning on. on m way home, my vehicle was lurching and not running properly.

when i plled into the driveway, i see smoke and could smell that my brakes were scorched and burnt. i looked down and saw that sears had applied my emergency brake on the floorboard and neglectected to tell me that they had done so. i called sears store in hilo hawaii automotive twice @ 808-981-4095 and got attitude and lip service from troy and some chick that hung up on me..

i then called their office @ 808-981-4001 ande sploke to oren who said that he was a store manager. they all told me that sears always applies the emergency brake for saftey reasons. bullshit! they do it on purpose. i spoke to the mechanic and his boss named perry as i was leaving in the parking lot. neither one of them told me that they had appled the emergency brake and should disengage it.

i told sears that i want a complete brake job due to their inferior customer service and neglect

I purchased two sewing machines online through Sears.com and at slightly different times of the day for 2 different people to make early purchases for Christmas. Unbeknownst to me, I learned one person had just bought a machine for herself and the second person developed a serious illness and is unable to sew any more. When I received an email notice of my purchases I discovered that the machines were the same but one was priced about $70.00 higher than the other. I tried to return both machines today at the Sears store. One of them went right through at the store and was credited to my account.

The other wouldn't go through at all. Found out that Sears has between 300 and 400 outside vendors that sell products through their website as Sears. Now I have to send the second machine back myself at my cost & learned that the additional $70.00 I was asked to pay for the same machine was the extra "profit" the outside vendor was making. Nowhere online was this explained to me. Had I not purchased both machines at slightly different times & then returned them, I would never have learned of this practice.

On 10/17/2011 I received an Email add from Sears advertising an online order only Panasonic 55 inch HDTV plasma with two pair of glasses for $1099.99. When I tried to order it online I was unable to get the $1099.99 price. Instead the price was $1299.99 with no glasses. The add also said to use a special code, "PANATV" and when entered into the order it came back with, "This code does not apply to this TV". Many, many Emails to Sears robots resulted in them finally telling me they could not find the add for the TV at $1099.99.

They could not find their own add? I copied and pasted the add to one of the many Emails and so far I have heard nothing. I'm not holding my breath. Sears seems to be as difficult to deal with as PayPal.

I will never take another chance at buying online from Sears and encourage others not to take the chance either. This is a highly deceptive practice & I resent being taken advantage of in this manner. Possible Resolution: I'd like to see Sears identify the products that are coming through an outside vendor and identify the purchase price difference. I hope my account will be properly credited when the 2nd. machine is returned, and would like to be reimbursed for the extra shipping costs I will now have to pay.

I bought a washer and dryer, after waiting the 2 weeks for delivery I was given a time for delivery and then they called and gave another time for delivery, and then they called and told my Son they would have to reschedule for the next day! I called the 800 number for delivery and those people are outsourced! They're not even in this country and they tried telling me that it was already delivered!I tried to speak to a supervisor and no one would connect me to one so I called the Sears store where I bought it and they gave me the same worthless 800 number.

I use to buy everything from sears, from tools , appliances, clothes,  just everything. Here in the last few years your service to the public has went down the tubes. I went out to your bluefield store to buy a portable air compressor, the one i wanted wasnt in the store but they had a set with compressor and air tools, they told me i could order it and it would be in in 2 days. I told them that i needed it sooner and that i would buy the one they had and they could replace it when the other one came in.

I have had a problem with my Sears washer from the getgo. It never has worked properly, sometimes taking as many as 4 hours to get a single load done. Have had several parts replaced,had the waranty extended,yet it still is bad....something smelled like it was burning. Now it won't spin or drain. Magtag refuses to do anything but a service call. I've tried to say I just have a lemon! How does one get some response from them? Do they not stand behind their products? My last machine lasted 25 years with only a couple service calls...I don't abuse my appliances. Will I get any response from Sears? I bet not!!!!

T hey told me no! So i went to lowes, you bet they took care of me. Now i dont even shop at sears any more, i shop where i am appreciated. I told the salesman I purchased the set from to call them and find out way I have to take more time off work to wait for another delivery! The salesman called back and told me the washer and dryer was already delivered!!!! It's no wonder Sears is going under I know they've lost my business!!

First the customer service in the Brooklyn store on Beverly rd sucks you wait on a long line to be treated with such rudeness and total lack of respect for a paying customer. I bought a set of brand new tires in October 2011 with a road hazard plus agreement. They mislead you into thinking you get a new tire if it cannot be fixed. My tire has a hole in it on the sidewall and they want to charge me 100$ what warranty. Tell people the truth. This particular sears is very unprofessional and needs a major overhaul. I am very dissatisfied this is the worst. Don't bring your car here unless absolutely necessary unless you are gluten for punishment and want to give your money away!!

I went to the Sears store today that is located at Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood Indiana. We were looking for a jacket for my father-in-law. We were looking for a "tall" in mens. After wandering around for about 10 minutes in the Mens Department looking for signs that would have said "Big and Tall", we finally found an Associate so we could ask where that department was. She said it was in the basement.

We proceeded to the basement and again looked for signs that said "Big and Tall". We could not locate any Associate on the floor that we could ask. There was a male Associate that was "passing by" and asked him if he knew. He said he didn't work in that Department but he was sure there was one. I went to the cashier area to ask a cashier. The cashier I asked told me "no" you don't have a tall mens department.

I worked in customer for service for 30 years and I will have to say that this display was the worst customer service I have ever seen. In the retail business especially, I think it is terrible that people that are supposed to be in the "customer service" business have no clue what is going on. Their "I could care less" attitude is appalling to me.

I understand in today's world we all try to do more with less but this experience is unacceptable to me. Sears associates need to take more pride in their jobs and really know what their job is all about. I hadn't shopped at Sears for years and I can tell you after this experience I won't shop Sears again.

Of course our dehumidifier was on the recall list, sent the plug in and all information required, expecting to be reimbursed in full for their faulty product. WRONG. Seventyfive bucks and a twentyfive dollar discount coupon. RIPPOFF. No where in the information on recall was the amount of recall we would recieve. NOWHERE. Due to our basement being somewhat damp, we had to purchase a new unit pronto, and decided not to buy another Sears product to handle our task. Whoopie, a 75 dollar check toward a 300 dollar new unit. Payment in full should be expected from such a company.

I purchased a Kenmore stove, side by side refridgerator, dishwasher and range. When I purchased all, I was aked if my stove was electric (not if it was hard electrice) and i said yes. When Sears came to deliver the appliances, the guy walks in, looks at my stove and say he can't remove nor replace it. I asked what do you mean, he said hard electric. I called Sears and was told I should've told someone, I said if I was asked I could've checked but no one asked me. I was told about the dishwasher and the hood range only. Sears associate told me they could have someone come over and hook it up in a week for an additonal $195 (I just spent over $3,000). I told her, that was never told to me and I am a bit annoyed because I buy applianced from you and I have to pay to have them hooked up, that is absurd. If Sears is going to be a penny pitching company, let your consumers know. My appliances were delivered on the 19th of October, 2012, like I said, I hired an electrician to do Sears work (Sears outsource there delivery associates), now I have placed four (4) phone calls to Sears to come and pick up my old stove (which I paid for) and I keep getting the run around. When I call they say it's not in the system and they will schedule it, the schedule date comes and I call back and the same thing again. I was told by many people not to deal with Sears and now I understand why. When PC Richard deliver anything, they make sure they have people that can hook it up whether it's in the price or they tell there customers. I am very disappointed in Sears and at this point, I will never recommend you and I do Real Estate where I would tell my customers to not purchase your appliances from Sears. I would really like to speak to some one of higher authority. When I call Sears last night (October 25th, 2012), I was told all the supervisors were busy and someone would get back to me. Thank god I wasn't hold ing my breath. I am referring to the Sears in Smith Haven Mall, Lake Grove, NY. If someone could please get back to me, it would be greatly appreciated. My home number is 631-676-5157.

I bought a Craftsman Model 28 75117 electric air compressor on 12/23/2008. I used it 7 times to pumpup the tires in my two car. on 10/8/2011, while using it, it vibrated, smoked, and then split in two. I discovered that the screws that held the motor to the compressor did not have any nuts or mechanism to lock them tight. Consequently, they backed themselves out via vibration. A poor design and safety hazard. It had a one year warranty. I did not get the extended warrany on this unit.

However, considering the reason why it failed I thought Sears would be embarrassed and exchange the unit. (They have a newly designed replacement unit 28 75121. I wonder why!) I talked with three different people at Sear's "Solution Center." What a waste. They aren't there to help loyal Sear's customers. Not to mention, they are rude. A great company is falling appart. It is sad.

I then purchased a Craftsman Drill/Light a few years back and the charger is no longer operating and has now rendered the unit graveyard ready. I went to the local store and they told me Sears no longer sells the charger for the 15.6 volt drill/light but I could buy a complete 15.6 volt drill/light with a charger - What? Can you kindly tell me why I can't buy the charger for my current drill.

Why is Sears selling power tolls and then quit handling replacement parts? I was told that Sears has had many complaints regarding this problem I would appreciate your quick responce regarding this problem . My neighbor across the street has the exact same problem. Sears is saying that I can't replace the charger but they would be happy to sell me a complete package with a charger .Very upset with Sears and Craftsman at this point. Thanks and will be waiting your responce

Contacted Sears to install windows for me and since this is a complaint review your pretty much already know how it went. I was told it would take one day to install nine windows with outside moldings. It took 4 days to install. Day 1 two guys came the rest were to show up in a van which alledgely the tire blew out and the couldnt come. Two guys that came could only install 7 windows and put in the last two but didnt secure them so the house was freezing. Day 2 no one showed up to install windows.

Day 3 the entire team showed up to install but ran out of material leaving a huge mess in my front and back yard. Day 4 contractors realized that the windows werent installed correctly and said they reordered windows but tried to contact Sears when those windows would come in they never heard of such an order. So Im out of 10K the windows cost me.

I'm a person who would like to see Sears around for a long time but after my experiance today I'm not too sure. Went to the Woodlands Texas today looking for a part for my dryer and the first thing I was told by another customer was, do not ask him anything. An older guy with somewhat of an attitude asked me what did I want. I told him to be patient and I would tell him. An overall negative experiance from a known professional store. This person should not be employed by a store trying to maintain a good relationship with customers.

I had cataract surgery which resulted in having to have a new eyeglass prescription. I took my prescription to Sears Optical in Montgomery and a nightmare started to unfold from there. The employees that I had to deal with her so incompetent that I finally gave up. This was after they submitted my insurance forms to Viva Medicare incorrectly and this resulted in my benefits being denied. They actually were issued a $100.00 check which they were not entitled to, and never returned.

We had paid and had a receipt for the entire cost and after almost a year of going back numerous times for corrected insurance forms, we finally received the $100.00 that was due to us from the beginning. This did not result in them refunding the $100.00 that they had previously received in error. They couldn't get the codes right and this kept us from getting our check for almost a year. I realize you can't pay a Rocket Scientist to work in these positions, but at least give them enough training to perform the duties required.

We have been Sears customers since 1960 but we do not intend to ever buy anything from them again. AND, one pair of my glasses will not hold the lense. I finally stopped going back for that, too. Don't give me the excuse that it is an independent company and not a part of Sears. They are in your store and everything (receipts, etc) has your name on them.

So, I just purchased a washer from Sears. They installed it and one month later, it started leaking. I called to schedule an appointment. After being transferred numerous times, I finally did the live chat. I then found out it would be 2 weeks to get an appointment. I asked to speak with a supervisor and after waiting 20 minutes online, was finally told there was no supervisor. I was then told 10 minutes later that the supervisor was in a meeting and wouldn't be available and that I should call to speak with someone.

I then called, and was then told that there were 4 other callers waiting to speak with a supervisor. While waiting, the regular agent, then told me that I would have to pay $75 to schedule the appointment that is 2 weeks out. I just bought the thing, Sears installed it, why do I have to pay? This is ridiculous! It has now been 35 more minutes on hold and I am still waiting for the supervisor.

Ok, so I got the supervisor. Who, of course tells me the same script as everyone else. She stated her name was "George" and that she can't give me a last name. Of course, I am stuck with an appointment 2 weeks out. And, she didn't understand why waiting for 2 weeks for an appointment is an issue.

In June of 2008 my husband and I purchased a Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination. We also purchased a stove, refrigerator and a dishwasher at the Sears store. In the past we have had exceptional use from Sears appliances. First, the stainless steel trim fell off my microwave in the first month of purchase and would not stay attached.

Then, on Dec. 29 my microwave died with a routine warming of food! It was only 3 1/2 years old! The quality of this unit was devastating and disappointing. It would cost $269. for a serviceman from Sears to "fix" it, but if he was not able to we would have to pay him and on top of that purchase a new microwave! We are deeply disappointed in the quality performance and longevity of this unit, and are further disappointed in Sears Service response to this problem.

Sears sucks! I am never purchasing an appliance from them again!

On 02/25/2012 I purchased a self propelled lawn mower model #917370430 in less than a month it had to go into the shop. I t did not want to start, it kept stalling out within 30 seconds. I was told it had to much oil in the oil resevor. a month later it went back inot the shop for the same problem. now the mower will not start at all. I was told that it is due to low compression and that I probably had hit something. They said they would not honor the 2 year warranty, but if I paid 263 dollars they would fix the mower. I paid 285 dollars for the mower. They refuse to honor their own warranty. It is a 2 year warranty and I want my money back or a new mower. I have every intention of telling my 633 face book friends as welll as the Air Force reserve unit that I belong to, informing them of the failure to honor their waranty for their product.

I am writing about how Sears treats its customers when they give them a good deal on price. I was very excited about thanksgiving this year because I wanted a new TV. I was standing in line at Sears in Oxford at number 1.

I got the ticket for 50 LED TV, but when I went to get TV it was not there so they told me that they don't have TV some one took the TV, they will order better TV for me, this is the TV that they were advertising big time as there super hot deal.

They ordered a better TV for me and told it will be available on 12/12/12 while doing this they ordered a better TV for others in line behind me even better than me and their delivery date was 12/5/12. When I tried to get that one or better delivery date they denied to do any thing.

When I went to pick up my TV on 12/12/12 TV was not there, they said itwill be there on 19 th dec I told I wan TV they threatened me of police and told me I can get refund, my point is that if it was any other thing I would had purchased without standing in line I wont mind refund but I was in line for 12 hrs to get that TV and still they are threatening me of calling police and refund

I have been a customer of Sears for 60 of my 75 years I purchased 1000's of $ worth of merchandise from Sears .When I had my own construction company I bought Craftsman hand a power tools. Also used Sears major appliances in kitchens I constructed. Now at age 75 and want credit approval to purchase a new tv ,you allow Experian to dictate to you about a customer you had for 60 years . I have had mortgages on several homes , home equity loans personal loans and recently a reputable local furniture store gave me 6 months to pay on furniture I purchased. I am never late on my rent or any other monthly bills . I bank with Wells Fargo and am sure I can get a personal loan with them I thought renewing my credit with Sears would be possible . Be assured that business with you and Kmart will cease , as there are many retailers who would welcome my business. Finally , I will no longer encourage any want to shop at Sears Your former satisfied customer. Robert H. Clarke

Ordered washer, dryer, pedestals, hoses, etc. Paid for delivery. Was told it would be delivered on Thursday, February 21, 2013. My husband contacted me to find out where Sears was since there was no delivery. Contacted Sears...was told the sales person who handled my order was new and made a mess with punching in the information and appently placed it as a hold at location. The Sales Associate, Nancy (Novi Location) was very nice and contacted the Dulles location in Virginia to straighten everything out. The contact person in Dulles called my husband and assured him delivery will be on Saturday morning. On Friday, an automated call came from Sears stating delivery would be between 1 and 3 p.m. Another blow! On Saturday the delivery people came and told my husband the water pan was too small for the washer. My husband told him start on the dryer while he runs to home depot to get the correct pan. My husband was told no. My husband asked the delivery men if they had more deliveries within the area...they said yes. He asked if they could come back at the end of their cycle...they said no. My husband then told them to cancel the order. Before my husband could even go to the store, I recieve an email receipt crediting me $3,000 for the order. No one called to see what had transpired! My husband went to the store and someone was prepared with a receipt for my husband. Then to find out we had the proper size water pan for the washer!!! The assistant manager kept on saying there was nothing he could do. The manager appently leaves at 12:00 and could not be reached. Then when my husband told them to credit his credit card....the representative said he did not have a card on file. My husband has had a Sears card since 1991...Sears is so quick to find it when a sale is being made but not for a refund. This is not the only time a situation like this has happened. It is just apparent that my husband and I are stupid for giving Sears a chance. I just want to know how is this allowed...How does management not follow up when there is a minor glitch with a customer...How do delivery men make the final call on situations with deliveries...How can someone be prepared with a receipt when my husband walks into the building....Please help me figure this out....or am I just wasting my time?

I was attending a Christmas party and needed a $75 gift card that I could print online because I did not have enough time to stop and get one. Sears advertised that you could buy the gift card and within one hour print out a copy of it for the gift. I ordered one online. After a little more than an hour I received an email stating that they "may need more time to process and might need to contact me. I paid with Paypal, so there could not have been a problem with the transaction.

After 3 hours and no luck, I called the help number from the email and had to provide tons of information about my purchase. The call obviously went to India as the person had to have me repeat myself several times as I did for her to repeat to me to understand. She then passed me to the finance department and they asked me all the same questions again and did not even know why I was calling, so I had to tell the story all over again.

Ultimately, she said the gift card had not even been processed yet because they were behind. This is a total failure in advertising something you could not deliver. I would have done much better elsewhere and will make sure I shop elsewhere in the future. My transaction number was 439905557 on 8 December 2012.

Re: Treadmill Repairing. Dear Sir/ Madam, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that two men came on 3/7/12 to repair the treadmill. After briefly inspecting the machine I was presented with an estimate of $802.66 and I was also advised that since this is an old machine, spending any amount of money for repairing it would be complete wastage.

I was also told that most of the spare parts for this machine are either too expensive or not available any more. Both men advised me to use a company that removes junk as that way I would be able to make few bucks and get rid of the junked machine. They charged me $99.00 for the visit and drove away.

Unconvinced, I started looking for another company for a second opinion about the machine and talked to a person, just by listening the symptoms, agreed to repair the machine and asked me to order two parts, one from Sears and another from different company. It took barely 25 min for the person to repair the machine and he charged me only $115.00 for the complete job with two years warranty.

I am complaining of being presented with misleading and false information,  incorrect estimation and wrongfully charged for $99.00.I have the relevant bills, vouchers and purchase orders for necessary substanciation.

On April 2nd I made two purchases on Sears.com. Shortly after ordering I received an email advising that my order was cancelled. I called Customer Service and was told that I needed to speak to the Fraud Dept to whom they transferred me. I then spoke to a lady named Kristy who was very unhelpful and advised that my orders were cancelled due to fraudulent activity reported by the credit card company. I was instructed to call Citibank. I called them and was told that they did not show anything was wrong on their end. All they saw was that the amounts charged to my cards were cancelled by Sears. I called Sears back and spoke to a representative who once again transferred me to the security department. I then spoke to someone who told me since I had reported fraud previously (which I did not) my account was locked. When I tried to explain that this was not the case he asked me if I was going to let him explain or continue talking over him. I told him to put his supervisor on the phone. He then put me on hold. After 5 min he came back and told me that his supervisor was at lunch and I had to wait 15 min for him to get back. When I asked to speak to someone else he put me back on hold and never returned to the line. I then called back and got another rep who finally transferred me to her supervisor. This person, although nice, was completely clueless and transferred me back to security. The fraud rep that picked up the line told me that I was now banned from ever ordering online and going forward all purchases had to be made in the store???!!! I asked for his manager who got in the line and told me that I had numerous red flags on my account but he could not provide me with the details due to privacy. Really?? I am beyond frustrated and upset. I need someone to resolve this issue ASAP!!!

Sears was contacted to repair a washer and dryer purchased from them and under warranty. The earliest date given for a tech to come out was 2weeks away. When the date arrives, we waited the given time frame of 1pm-5pm. There was no phone call from Sears to indicate any change in the scheduled arrival of the technician. At approximately 5:10pm, we contacted Sears to inquire whether or not the technician would still be coming out. The service rep indicated that there was not a tech assigned and the appointment would need to be rescheduled.

Loooooong story short......we were told that the next available appointment would'nt be until another two weeks down the line.......SEARS...are you kidding .. where is your professsionalism, customer service, and courtesy!!! Not only did we not get our washer/dryer fixed, we waited for a service tech fors 4 hours, lost time off of work and the frustration of being on the phone with several reps from 5:10-8:00pm. Is this how you treat all of your loyal customers who have purchased all of their appliances from you over the last thirty years.

Once again Sears has ruined a surprise for my husband at Christmas, by mailing information with what i purchased right on the envelope!! My husband picks up the mail and saw then what i had purchased for him. I want $125 in compensation for the aggrevation and frustration you have caused me. This is the second time you have ruined a surprise because you feel you need to seel a warranty agreement, which we never will purchase. I want a call back from someone in management. I intend to visit the store also and tell them about my frustration also. You need to make this right with me!!

You have lost this loyal customer.................

I purchased a 7.25 Platinum Craftsman push lawn mower within the last two years. The carburetor has broken down 3 times despite the fact that I drain the fuel after each use. The 3 breakdowns have occurred within 6 months (February, June, and August of 2013.) My warranty is good till March 2014.The Sears repair center repaired it twice but are refusing to replace the carburetor the third time stating that it was due to stale fuel. I know three friends who are having the same issue with their Craftsman lawnmowers and with the Sears Repair center. I spoke to a lawnmower mechanic who stated that gas does not go stale in a month and a half which is what Sears technicians are claiming, despite the fact that I drain the fuel with a syphon pump that I bought at Sears.

I purchased my lawnmower for $350.00 thinking it was top of the line and would not have any problems since I grew up with my father always buying reliable Craftsman products. I guess Craftsman is not reliable like it used to be, or Sears repair is a scam, blaming customers for defective merchandise. Regardless I am disappointed with Craftsman and SEARS repair service. They are charging me $138.00 to repair it, for that money I would rather purchase a new Murray lawnmower at Wal Mart, who has excellent customer service.

This message will probably go nowhere but I still have the need to at least voice my issue. A couple days before Black Friday my wife and I went to Sears to look at treadmills. Our goal was to find the treadmill we wanted in advance before trying to decide on one while fighting the crowds on Black Friday. We found the one we wanted; it was the NordicTrack T5.7 for $599. We were told if we were to buy the treadmill right then and if the price was to go any lower in the next 14 days we would be credited the difference. I asked if that would be the case for the Black Friday sale price as well and the associate said “Yes Sir, even Black Friday prices.”

We were convinced to purchase the treadmill right then knowing we would still receive the better price if it did get any better. Black Friday arrives and the price lowers to $499. I thought “great” and I contacted Sears and explained how I would like to be credited the $99 that I was told I would be three days prior. It was explained to me that was not possible because any deals like that would be excluded for Black Friday. After learning this would I have been better off returning the original treadmill for a refund that day then to turn around and repurchase thesame one for $100 cheaper 5 minutes later? If it wasn’t such a hassle I would have.

The day I purchased the treadmill we were straight up lied to by the sales associate. My wife and I have purchased numerous items over the years from sears which include some more costly items.

About a month ago I sent you all an email regarding a washer that I purchased in April/May timeframe and then paid in full on June 13, 2012. I sent it via the Sears Ingram website therefore it may not have reached the actual complaint department. In that email I explained that I went into the Sears at Ingram and specifically told the Sears cashier that I wanted to pay for the washer in full. Since I had not received a bill from Sears which I thought was because it was purchased during a special buy where there was a no interest bargain, I requested that I wanted to speak to a manager. I told the manager that I wanted to pay for the washer in full; I was told that my balance was $488.70 which is what I paid. Now for the past 3 or 4 months I am getting bills from Sears stating that I still have a balance. This matter needs to be cleared up on your end since I paid for the washer in full. I should not be harassed regarding this. I have always believed that Sears was a great place to buy merchandise but this experience has definitely been horrible.

To whom it may concern: I went and took family pictures at the Brookdale Sears and is not impress with the service. I had a bad experience with my first family portrait 4 years ago, but decided to give it another shot since it's been so long and maybe the management has changes. My 2nd experience has not been pleasant either. After my portrait shoot, I specifically told them to call me for pick-up when all my prints are in. I received a call 2 weeks later telling me it's in. I proceed to go pick it up only to find out my 20x20 isn't in. I didn't make a big deal about it. I told them to call me when my 20x20 collage gets in and they told me ok. I waited another 2 weeks and haven't heard anything. I called the studio only to find out they don't have a record of it and they'll order it. After a month and a half waiting, I finally received my 20x20 collage with no frame, which I purchased with frame. I was told I didn't order it with a frame, but I have the receipt to prove it. They told me they'll order the frame and 2 months later, I still haven't receive my frame. I was a loyal customer, but now, I will never shop there again and will let friends and family know of their poor service.

A waste of my time!!!

I made an appt to have my dryer serviced on 1/13/13. I made an appt for 1/15/13 and a window from 1-5 which I feel is really unacceptable. but whatever, then i had received a time from 3-4:30 which was fine. then i called again at 5pm and was told that the tech was running late and my appt was the very next and he was on his way. then at 7:pm i called again, after being on hold for at least 20 min i was told that the appt was rescheduled and the tech went home!!!! I feel that this is very, very poor customer service and then to top it off after i cancelled the appointment that was rescheduled for me on their behalf the customer service rep wanted for me to make an appt for a free home consultation for remodeling! what is that about? I'm done with SEARS and having a local company to come and fix y dryer.

I recently purchased an expensive Craftsman (Husqvarna) Lawn Tractor and accessory bagger from a Sears Home Store in Penfield NY. While running the tractor(after less than three hours of use (three actual starts) I experienced a very loud bang or backfire and stall and it would not restart. Upon opening the hood we found that the spark plug was actually broken in half. The vendor provided me with a replacement plug which was installed but the machine would not start.

Obviously there was a serious defect that caused serious damage to the electrical system and/or the motor. I was told by the vendor to call Sears Service number (4myhome)which told me it would take over two weeks to send a technician just to check it out. They would not budge on an earlier date so I called the vendor and indicated the machine was obviously defective and should be taken back with full refund. He told me it was not yet established the tractor was defective and his policy was to charge a 15% inventory return charge plus pick up fee.

I wanted to place an order online at the Sears store in Phoenix on 12/10 11. The young lady that assisted me was very diligent in trying to assist me to no avail. The Dept Manager then took over and tried to assist me. He was hung up on twice by the person he was speaking to. I spent a total of two hours in the store and still was not able to make the purchase on-line. What kind of people are you hiring for these jobs? I am very disappointed and considering canceling my Sears card. I am also a retiree of Sears and can"t believe the poor quality of your customer service dept.

Since I had no intention of keeping a defective unreliable machine that failed after virtually no use, I reluctantly paid the fees of over $300 to return a defective product. I am in he process of filing a complaint with Sear's and demand for a full refun don't expect much luck but in any event anyone Sears is now permanently on my s--t list of unethical unfair self-serving retailers. Never again.

Hello Sears, I need your help. On October 02, 2011 I purchased a Kenmore Elite water softener off the internet and picked it up at my local store in Maplewood, MN. When I was unpacking the softener I found a small piece of plastic that broke off some part in the softener. I called Sears to let them know what I had found and Sears said, they would replace it when I found out where the small piece came from. After completing the installation I found the plastic piece fit onto the end of the plastic strap in the attached photo.

I though this was great, I will just look up the part number and call Sears to get a replacement part. Not so fast the part is not in the manual and no one at Sears direct parts could find it either. ( No one I talked to on the phone or at Sears knows what the purpose of the strap.) Sears did send me a new top cover hoping the plastic strap would come with it but it doesn't not. Sears also wanted to send me a new water softerner but I said , no all I want is to replace the broken strap.

So Please look at the photo attached and determine what is the part, what is it used for, and finally do I need it, If I do please send me one or send me the part number so I can get one from warranty.

Over the Labor Day weekend of 2010, I purchased a Sears Elite Washer and Dryer. I also purchased a Master Protection Agreement. I have not had to use the agreement until I recently scheduled a preventive maintenance appointment because the dryer was taking longer to dry things. I was told the technician would show up between 12 and 5 on November .

I waited around for five hours only to be called at 4 50 that afternoon and told that he had at least another hour before he finished the job he was on. He said we could reschedule.

I rescheduled for November between the hours of 8 AM and 12 AM. I received a call at 11 50 AM telling me that the technician was finishing a job in Punta Gorda and would be late. Punta Gorda is at least an hour away from me so again we rescheduled after waiting around all morning.

By now the dryer was starting to make a strange noise so I schedule a maintenance and a repair. I was given the date of December 4 between the hours of 7 AM to 12 PM. I asked to have the earliest appointment possible because I was getting tired of waiting around all day only to be called at the last minute with the bad news that they were not coming that day.

So now it is 1 PM on the 4th of December. No one showed up, no one called and I am starting to believe that I have been sold an empty piece of paper! How you could put the name of your company on such a shoddy run business is beyond me.

The washer and dryer are beautiful machines. I thought that by purchasing a protection agreement I would insure that they stayed that way. So far I have wasted three days, aggravated myself and gotten nowhere in trying to make sure the machines stay in good working condition. This protection agreement( not cheap at all) is not worth the paper it is printed on.

Update. 12/11/12

I was given this date for a repair appointment. I was apologized to by all sorts of Sears people who sounded sincere. I was told the repair man would arrive between 8 AM and 12 Noon. I again waited ALL morning. At 2 minutes to Noon the repair man called and said he was from Sears, he was given my name for a repair and he could be at my place in about 35 minutes. I asked him if he was kidding and said forget it, it was way too late as I had to pick my daughters from school.

Do the times that are given out mean absolutely nothing? This was the fourth time that I waited and was treated like a piece of garbage.

At this point I don’t even want to try again to have a preventive maintenance and repair appointment made. These machines were not cheap and the service contract seems to be 100% worthless. I’ll let these machines burn out and purchase my next appliances elsewhere. I remember when the name Sears stood for quality, reliability etc. From the repeatedly botched delivery of these machines to my total inability to have any prepaid preventive work done on them, this has been a nightmare.

At this point I would like to receive the money that I wasted on the service contract refunded to me in full. I have never had anyone show up when they were supposed to and have gotten no use whatsoever out of the contract, through no fault of my own. I have wasted four days waiting on a repair service that could care less about their customers.

After the third time that I was left high and dry, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. It was filed under Complaint ID#: 94428752. You can be sure that they will receive this latest update.

To whom it may concern, I have been an avid Sears/Craftsman owner my whole life. The majority of my power tools, hand-held tools, and lawn care equipment bare the Craftsman name. That being states, alas, my dedication to the name has just been tarnished due to one of the worst service experiences I have ever participated. Approximately 5 weeks ago, I brought my Craftsman chainsaw into the local repair location in Shreveport, LA, to have an annual check-up/tune-up performed. I also asked to have the unit upgraded from an 18” bar to a 20” bar.

While awaiting to speak to the attendant, I noticed an irate customer speaking to her and overheard his bad experience with your service department. The attendant eventually took my information and shipped the chainsaw.
About a week later, I received a call from the service department scheduled to work on the saw. The person stated that they could not upgrade my unit to a 20” bar. When I questioned this person about why Sears sells a 20” upgrade kit at the local Sears repair location that specifically indicates fits my model number, they stated that I’d need to change several other parts for a successful fit (I later found out, this is truly NOT the case at all).

I then asked the individual if they could sharpen my chain for me and was informed that they do not do that; they only replace chains. So, I informed them to do so. Almost two weeks later, I had not heard from the local Sears store as to the whereabouts of my chainsaw, as I was specifically informed that they’d call me when the unit arrived back in Shreveport, LA. I called the local store to be told that they had the unit for almost a week, but had failed to call.

After paying the $74 charge, I picked up the saw and attempted to utilize the saw that afternoon. However, after about 10-minutes of usage, the saw started smoking so badly, I had to cease all activity. A few days later, I had the opportunity to bring the saw back to the local shop. After returning to the local store, I felt the attendant immediately had an attitude with me when I attempted to explain the situation. When she finally took the time to get on her computer, she snarled, “So, what’s SUPPOSED to be wrong with it?”

This somewhat infuriated my wife and I, as we had just taken the time to explain the dilemma with no attempt by the attendant to document the concerns during the conversation. The attendant took my saw and shipped once again. A few days later, I received a call from the repair department stating that my saw needed several repairs to include the oil pump which would cost an additional $83. Taken aback, I asked the repair department attendant how this could have happened within the short span of having the unit tuned-up.

She informed me that they only replaced the chain and installed a spark plug. I asked if $74 was the going rate for a new chain and spark plug and she stated, “Yes, with the labor involved.” I could have personally completed the same actions for less than $30. She further stated that the new repairs ONLY included parts, but would not include labor. I then pondered why, if they didn’t conclude any internal fault, they would not be charging labor on such a repair, as they did on the previous submission.

At this time, $157 would have gone well against a newer chainsaw. However, there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with mine…my mistake was attempting some sort of preventive maintenance with Sears and/or its affiliates. I have informed the maintenance department to return my chainsaw WITHOUT repair, as this issue cannot feasibly be considered quality service by any measure. With this, I digress to state I will no longer support the Craftsman name within my own residence, nor abroad. This event is unacceptable, and simply cannot be tolerated.

I went shopping at Sears yesterday and could not believe that your store does not carry dresses for short people. I do not understand this at all as we need dresses as well as the tall people. We have to drive a distance to get to a Sears store and I was very disappointed that the store did not have a dress for me. I for one will not shop at Sears again unless the store starts supplying dresses for us short people. I hope you get many emails regarding this as I was shocked when I couldn't find any that would fit me and I just need them to wear to church, not a fancy party dress. Thank you.

I purchased a (Craftsman) riding lawn mower and was having problems with it and needed a snowthrower attachment attached to my rider. First I was told that the attachment I had would not work, on that phone conversation I talked to 8 different operators just for them to tell me I had to buy the newer attachment and the one I had wouldn't work at all. As far as the lawnmower I had some issues w/ it and made an appointment, which was 4 days out after our conversation. Then you canceled I needed the work done asap and the attachment put on. My local lawnmower service had to pick it up and bring it to there shop, they told me the attachment would fit and I need work done to the riding mower. The carburator and air filter needed to be torn apart and cleaned. Which should be covered under my warranty but you wont take care of it because I took it elsewhere. I would have let you guys do it but you cancelled and told me you couldn't attach the snowthrower. I believe this is not right. Please contact me. James Brasseur

I have been a customer for over 45 yrs as well as my Family. We purchased a $1000. Range in 2006 which turned out to be an unsafe product. Sears "tech" inspected it and said it within their specs -- so much for Satisfaction ALWAYS"...And to hell with US. Strike 1. ........

2. In Nov. 2006 , We made another error in Judgement with Sears. We purchased a $500. Roto-Swirl Hot Water Heater from the Merritt Island Fl. Store. After a month it was leaking and was replaced. We replaced both elements earlier this Year and two wks. We cleaned both elements, flushed it out over a 4 hr. Period, and drained it completely with a hydro-vac. Two days later my wife drew a bath and the tub was filled with rust, metal pieces and black lime deposits. We purchased an extended warranty which was supposed to include a yearly cleaning, new Elements and Flushing.

When their"Tech" came , he took a load reading and said it was good. I asked him about the Flushing etc. and he laughed and said all the Salesman Lie to get a commission. When I asked for a replacement, I got a " Dog &Pony Show" and through very Poor English they wanted a $75.oo Fee for someone to look at it. I don't think so Tim......

This store has Salespeople that Lie for a Commission and warranties that don't hold water. They do not stand behind their Products, and they are not to be trusted? We will not be buying any more products from Sears....

Hello I took my family to the Sears photo department today for photos and I am completely outraged by the professional performance of your staff. I made a 530 pm appointment to get photos done, seeing as I have a 3 month old child we showed up early so she would be well rested and happy.

We were not taken back until close to 630, as if that wasn't bad enough, once taken back the room was not set up for us, my boyfriend had to assist with the set up just to get us in and able to shoot! Afterwards we asked to have a family photo done and then my daughters pictures to be taken with the
Christmas background, which did not happen.

The Sears lady who was taking our photos, I'm unsure of her name, was complaining about the other employees, yelling out the room to other staff members and had her thing underwear out the entire time. I was horribly affected. Once the shoot was done she informed us to return back in 20 mins to see out enhanced photos. To be kind we gave her two hours, seeing as we could walk around and see Santa.

When she returned at 830 pm, our photos were still not done, and we received an attitude because we came back. Once looking at the photos we asked how much it would be to purchase the CD with the photos on it, the lady then told us the price and tried to get us to buy the photos unenhanced and said we could do them at home!?

Why would I pay your company to do something at home by myself? I digress, then afterwards she asked me to schedule an appointment tomorrow to look at my photos and said " this way if you make an appointment this time you won't have to wait" as if we didn't have an appointment this time???!

The lady also took the liberty to inform us about her child that has past away which made both my boyfriend and I very uncomfortable. I am outraged by the procedures and actions they took. I wanted to inform Sears before you loose anymore customers. Thank you for your time.

I think you have allowed a scam to run on Sears website. I am VERY angry about how this was handled. A business advertised this greenhouse and took my money. They realized they had advertised it at a very low rate and immediately took it off your website within hours of my purchase. Instead of trying to rectify the problem back on December 14th, which would have allowed me to find a different gift, they mis-informed you and me for weeks that they had shipped the item. I called the supposed shipper, Demar, who had NEVER received the product to ship. After many emails and phone calls which included confirmation by Sears that the product had shipped and was due to arrive on 12/31, I was finally able, on 1/3/12, to get in contact with AMi Ventures, the company who advertised the product.

The owner had blatently lied to me telling me that he had been informed by Demar that the product had been damaged during shipment on 12/29 and was returned to him without getting to it's destination and that he had personally informed Sears of this matter. He went on to lie to me telling me that the greenhouse was no longer being manufactured and he would have to return my money. I have contacted the manufacturer, Rion, and they do in fact still make the greenhouse and have many still available. When I told the Ami Venture owner that I had been in contact with all these people and wanted the greenhouse delivered, he said he would call me back within 30 minutes.

When he did finally return my call, he then changed his story to say that the greenhouse is still manufactured but the company would not have any available for 25 days so he would have to refund my money. I had planned to give this greenhouse to my father-in-law, a 70+ year-old-man, who went home and prepped his yard in anticipation of his new 8 ft 6 inch x 20 ft 9 inch greenhouse. Ami Ventures mistakenly advertised this product at a very low price and then lied repeatedly about the product and it's shipment, laying blame on Demar and Sears, in order to to avoid making good on their advertised price. Sears is part of false advertisement, defamation of other businesses, and fraud. I want the advertised greenhouse package delivered for the advertised price.

Back in March of this year while shopping in your Nanuet New York store, I was approached by one of your Sears employees who politely solicited me for the replacement of house front doors, as this was something I was considering doing I rendered my personal information to be contacted by a sales man. Your sales man Dave Ellis contacted me and a home appointment was set up. Dave arrived on April 6th was polite, informative, and sold me a double front door set with installation. Approximately two and a half weeks later Dave called me to inform me the door set I had purchased was discontinued (a sales man selling a discontinued product?). Mistakes happen and a revised contract was drawn up to reflect a change in the door style. On June 4th a Sears contracted company arrived as scheduled and brought the front doors to the rear of my house for installation (I became concerned with their ability to do the job correctly).

They removed the appropriate front doors and installed the new ones, I immediately identified the job as poor and unsatisfactory work, the locking mechanism on the main door was broken, the remedy was to change it off with the secondary door, viewing the doors from the interior of my home I see day light peeking through, the exterior molding was destroyed, and from the interior the moldings are lopsided. This information was immediately conveyed to Dave Ellis and Yevette Manager at you New Rochelle Office. After numerous communications and unreturned calls Yevette has shown an unwillingness to correct this problem. I have been told the hold up was the purchasing of the exterior molding, and should be in shortly, when finally another Sears contractor arrived (late August) he only knew there was an installation problem, he concurred with it and new measurements were taken, and the molding would need to be ordered.

This as been going on for three months now, with little if any cooperation from your New Rochelle office, how much more patience am I supposed to display? As the colder weather arrives I am sure you understand my concerns to have this corrected, hopefully I will get some results with this complaint, if not the only resolution I can see is to have a contractor hired by me correct this problem and debit the balance of the monies still owed to Sears. I need some help here, thank you.

I received a flyer stating that Sears had a new service called coloring existing grout in tile. I made an appointment. after telling
the lady that my bathroom was very small and it would be a small job. I was told that the minimum job cost was $99 for any job. I agreed to that and the technician arrived the next week. The worker came in and showed me the tile colors---there were MANY.

I chose two colors. The worker returned to his truck and he stayed for a while. When he returned, he stated that I had chosen colors that
were not in the regular color price. My colors would have to be special ordered and it would be a $65 extra charge. I said no because
I had a worman coming the next day to fix the rest of the bathroom. I asked to see the color chart again and I hurridly chose another color--As it turned out, the next day in the daylight, it was a blue base???There was dye on the wall and the door(It washed off).

I called the manager and he basically said that it didn't pay him to do special colors on small jobs. This was a true bait and switch. Oh yes, there was also an $8 service fee added to the total cost. I am very disappointed in Sears--I am 74 years old and I have been using Sears products for the past 46 years--My first kitchen in this house was all Kenmore. Pleas DO NOT have your tile colored---they don't know what they are doing--It is a mess.

I paid for and ordered an Electrolux washer on 10/13/12 from your store #4057 -5901 Griggs Rd. Houston Tx 77023. I came back on 10/22/12 to pick it up and brought it back to my office. I unpacked it and took all of the shipping screws out, plugged it in and couldn't get the drum to spin. I called the help line for Electrolux and after trying to trouble shoot it, they told me to get a hold of the store that sold it to me. I called your store and after the girl going back and forth to my call several times, she told me she couldn't help me. I told her that I needed to speak to the Manager. A manager by the name of Daniel got on the phone and told me that he would order me another washer and have it delivered today 10/29/12.

I just called the store back and the girl told me that I had to call the delivery ctr. After being on hold with them for 30 minutes, they turned me back over to what sounded like the same girl that told me she couldn’t help me the 1st time. This time she tells me that I would have to wait another week and I would have to pay for the delivery. I told her that I needed to speak to another manager. She gave me to Daniel again. He told me that he couldnt help me. I told him that I wanted to speak to his District Manager. He told me that he couldn’t give out his phone number. The bottom line is I purchased this thing and have to wait on delivery a month before I will see it delivered if they don't screw it up again!

I ordered a refrigerator online on Nov 19th. To make sure that the order was processed correctly, I phoned and spoke to a gentleman to make sure that the model I had chosen would come with an ice maker and a right hand door, and that my old fridge would be removed. A few days later, the fridge was delivered, without an ice maker and with a left hand door. Also, I was never told that a fridge with an ice maker requires a plumber to disconnect it, so as a result my old fridge was left in my kitchen along with the new one. I managed to get a plumber to come in 20 minutes to disconnect my old fridge; however it took over 10 phone calls and 4 full days of waiting for the old fridge to actually be picked up!!

It took a total of 8 phone calls to get the door reversed on the new fridge. And, three service calls!! The first time a service person came I was told that it would cost me $125.00 to make the change. I had been told by a sales rep that the change would only cost $25.00. So, in desperation to get the thing done, I told the service technician that I would pay that amount if necessary and argue about it later. At that point, the technician advised me that he could not do it anyway as there was a part missing!! I waiting a few more days and finally got another visit from the same technician who then asked me if UPS had delivered a part. I asked him what part was he talking about as other people had told me that there was no part required to switch the door. He refused to elaborate.

I asked him to please just switch the door so it opened on the right side. He told me he could not do it without this mysterious part. He left again. He phoned me twice in that afternoon to inquire if UPS had arrived with the part he needed. At 4 p.m. he stopped calling and I had to again phone and talk to several people to attempt to get another appointment!! After being hung up on a few times, I finally reached a person who advised me that the whole problem could be blamed on the french speaking Montreal office!! No explanation what had actually occurred etc. but I have always been polite to innocent people just doing their jobs.

In total, I have had to spend hours contacting Sears and had to wait 3 days for service calls without getting the problem solved. Today, another technician arrived in a Sears truck (the other guy was sub contracted as the truck did not say Sears0 and he changed the doors with no problem and no mysterious part that never arrived and was never needed in the first place!!! About the ice maker, I could not tolerate trying to get that delivered!!

I have been a loyal Sears customer for over 40 year. I have purchased appliances for my rental properties, relatives, my own cottage and all my Xmas gifts. If this is not settled to my satisfaction, I never intend to deal with Sears again,. I would like to have at least $200. taken off the price of this fridge as my time and the amount of irritation caused by this ridiculous situation is worth much more than that. i would appreciate a response. This is the second complaint that I have written to Sears about this situation. No reply came from my first complaint.

I am not a Happy Customer .To start with I had put the wrong apartment Number on my Order .So went I discovered my mistake I called Sears and Agent ID told me she would redirect my order to the correct apartment. Ok then a few days go by and its time for it to be delivered a day or two before Christmas 2011. So I checked its status and it said it had been delivered..guess what not to me it went to the apartment that I had Called Sears about,that Agent told me had been changed.Well then I called UPS and ask where my package was and I explained that it had been redirected from sears to come to my address.

UPS told me that there had not been a redirect on that package and it was not there problem I had to call sears so agent Lied To Me. So what was I to do Agent was messing up My Christmas .It was going to take a week to get it all fixed, so I went to that apartment that had my mail and ask her if she had a package with my name on it .She said she did and gave it to me. I returned to my apartment to inspect my package and I could not believe what I saw.The Lady that had my mail OPENED MY PACKAGE IT WAS TAPED ALL THE WAY AROUND IT.SHE OPENED MY MAIL.

That is the main reason I am upset with Agent because She did not do her job I feel violated and upset about having to chase my package down and then it was opened up by a neighbor.....Signed Unhappy Customer Who Sears Needs To Reture My Shipping Charges because I had to Go Through This....

Hi, My name is Sureyya Cetin and my home address is 18W180 16th str.Villa park
Referring to compain on internet , I had appointment for today at 1.00 till 3.00 PM for air duct cleaning and furnace cleaning and I confirmed the appointment on phone with the person named Eric. referring to phone conversation with him, I left my husband at home and I went to work.I told him to tell them I will come back at 2.30 to pay the bill which I heard from Eric that I will pay the bill when the job is done. Person from Sears arrives around 1.00 PM , fills the papers and asks for the bill cash or check before they start to job. and when says I will come back in an hour they say no, they cant start working without having the money.. My husband offers half of the bill in cash , which he has in his pocket, but they say they want whole. And they leave .
This is very very disappointing situation. I have been working with sears since when I was a kid and I never heard or lived this before.

I have been a Sears customer for many years and our house and garage are full of Sears products. Lately when we are shopping, you can't get waited on. We purchased a hot water heater on 7/29/11. We stood and waited for somone to wait on us. We were even told they called and someone would be with us soon. They never showed up. A sales clerk from the washer/dryer department saw that we had been waiting for a long time and came over to help us as we were just leaving to go somewhere else. We ended up buying your product and had it installed.

We had heard that it was possible we could get a rebate from Consumers Energy so I checked into it and was told I had to find out if it was installed by a contractor that was a part of this with Consumers. I have tried to contact this department. I was told by an automated message that all sales personal were busy with costomers and would call me back within an hour. That was 10:30 am this morning. I called a second time at 1:55 pm and got the same message. I left my number again, telling them this is my second call. No one called me back yet and it's 2:30 PM.

This is a good way to loose customers and we were about to leave that day. I would appreciate it if I could get a call on the information I wanted to ask and what has been going on here.

Have feedback for Sears?
