FORT WALTON BEACH, FLORIDA -- Beyond furious with the customer service received at extended service agreement department. We currently have no working refrigerator for over a week now because the third Frigidaire certified technician that was sent to our house (under contract with extended service agreement department) for a leak in our refrigerator, actually broke the refrigerator. He admits to "pulling a piece of ice off of the coil and letting out all of the Freon." Although he didn't tell us he did this. He just closed the fridge and left our house, saying that someone would call us.
It wasn't until we went to make breakfast for our kids the next day that we noticed the fridge was HOT inside and all the food had to be thrown away. We have been fighting with Electrolux for 3 weeks to get this repaired and one of their certified repair companies actually broke the refrigerator beyond repair. For the first 2 weeks, at least we had a fridge, it just leaked. Now we do not have a usable refrigerator at all and are living out of coolers.
Since there are no service technicians in our area that are able to perform the repair, as evidenced by 3 coming out and then informing Electrolux that they cannot perform repairs on a "sealed system," supervisor, Stacy (extension **) at Electrolux said that she was going to put in for a replacement for us. This was a week ago. She assured me that she would call me as soon as she received the fax from the technician that broke our refrigerator. I never received a call so I called her and after being on hold for over 20 minutes, I got a representative that took my name and number and assured me that Stacy would call me back.
She never did. I called again every day for 5 days and was on hold for over 20 minutes again and same result. Messages were taken but no calls were returned. Today I called and have been on hold for 53 minutes. Someone is trying to reach another supervisor for me to speak with since Stacy isn't interested in returning my calls. The representative that is currently trying to find me someone in charge to speak with, said that my refrigerator cannot be replaced because the technician that broke it claims that it CAN be fixed but that his company CANNOT perform the repair.
She also told me that Stacy never put in for the replacement so we've been sitting here with no refrigerator, expecting that a replacement has been ordered, but in reality, nothing has been done and nobody has informed us that Electrolux has done NOTHING. Bottom line, I have 2 toddlers at home and I have NO REFRIGERATOR FOR MILK OR FOOD AT ALL. I told the representative that if someone CAN fix it, I need it fixed immediately. If nobody can fix it (which seems to be what everyone says AFTER we wait a week for each new company to come look at it) then I would like it replaced IMMEDIATELY.
This is absolutely ludicrous that NOBODY will speak with me or correct the problem. I am FURIOUS. I have been on hold for over 1 hour and 9 minutes, as I type this message... still no resolution and I am not hopeful there will be one any time soon. After 1 hour and 17 minutes, the representative trying to find me a supervisor finally decided that she would process the replacement herself and that someone from their "back office" will be in touch with me in 7-10 business days to let me know what the next step will be. I will NEVER EVER, EVER purchase a Frigidaire or Electrolux appliance again and I will ALWAYS warn others against it by sharing my story.
This is by far the worst product I ever purchased. I bought six refrigerators in the last 6 years all with ice makers. This purchase for my summer home, DGHF2360PF2a, side by side new style combo, the ice maker leaked from the day we plugged it in. I contacted the company and within 10 months it has been serviced 4 times. The 5th time will be in a few days.
Their product is so bad, they extended the parts and labor for another 6 months free of charge. But actually, the whole refrigerator should be replaced. This will never stop. It is a flaw in this model. DO NOT BUY FRIGIDAIRE. They have the worst customer service. How about the supervisor was toooo busy to talk. Scott will get back to me in 48 hours. BEWARE, THEY ARE SO BAD.
SEA CLIFF -- My wife and I recently purchased a new home, and the deal included relatively new kitchen appliances. Unfortunately, our Frigidaire refrigerator was of such bad quality, and our experience with the company was so poor, we felt obligated to document what we've encountered in hopes of informing others to avoid the brand. Our refrigerator was in reasonable shape upon moving into the house. Within 1 year of normal use by a family of 4, the plastic inside and outside the unit started showing fractures. Finally, random pieces of plastic, and then whole sections of shelves began breaking off.
We called Frigidaire, who informed us the unit had been purchased by the original owner in 2010, so none of what we experienced was under warranty -- We were informed that the replacement price for a SINGLE SHELF was $60! Amazingly, they refused to cover the near-total deterioration of most of the plastic shelving in the unit under any sort of "manufacturing defect" agreement. Instead, we'd be required to pay hundreds of dollars to replace the plastic shelves & moldings out of our own pocket.
Frigidaire: The right call would've been to stand by your products by offering an apology and replacement shelves, if not for free, then at a reasonable price. You've left a very bad taste in our mouths, and have certainly lost our trust and business.
I purchased a Frigidaire Refrigerator from Lowe's and paid a little over $2,000 for what was supposed to be a good, reliable product. After 1 year, the compressor went out and started making an extremely loud noise which could be heard from the opposite side of a 1800 square foot house. I contacted Frigidaire and they informed me they could not do anything because I was 10 days over my annual purchase date. I was then informed I would have to purchase an extended warranty plan as their plan only covers out to one year.
I had to purchase an extended warranty for them to take care of the loud noise. Then they informed me the earliest they could have someone come out to come fix the issue was 5 days out. I asked the customer service tech if there was any way I could get an earlier date and he said no. He informed me my situation was not an emergency situation so it does not require expedited service.
Needless to say, I will never buy another Frigidaire product as long as I live just because of their poor customer service and lack of professionalism/courtesy!!! Very disappointed, especially when paying over $2000 for their product. You are definitely not paying for their customer service. Social media here I come!!!!
CALIFORNIA -- I will never buy another Frigidaire product again. We bought a brand new refrigerator and had problems with it from day one. They sent out repair techs and all and with continued issues refused to do anything on this brand new appliance. Horrible customer service and again will never buy again!!!
NASSAU, NEW YORK -- This refrigerator is the worst!!! The freezer temperature goes up as the freezer drawer does not close properly. This began within a year of purchase and the freezer is not heavily used. We are family of 2. I have lost so much food, have paid for technicians to come, and Frigidaire customer service is useless. I am buying a new refrigerator and tossing this one after only 3 years. Frigidaire is a waste of money!!
I have a model FTR1817LW Frigidaire fridge. We have this at our cottage and noticed this May that there is paint bubbling that would appear from rust under it. We went out to the cottage for July long weekend and now the paint is flaking off. To add to the problem I broke the door handle.
I phoned Electrolux who owns Frigidaire and they said I only have 1-year warranty and it is expired. I asked the woman who I could barely understand what kind of poor quality workmanship this thing is made with when it rusts from the inside out? She told me she could give me a number for a repair place, but I feel it's not worth it, as the repair would be to replace the door and is probably worth half the cost of the fridge. I have read on this site and others about these fridges rusting and I am disappointed in Frigidaire's product and their customer service. I will never buy an Electrolux/Frigidaire product again.
KEMAH, TEXAS -- Last night I was standing in my kitchen making dinner preparations. My back was to the Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model FFHS2622MB3. I heard a strange sound and said out loud what is that noise? Then I smelled a burning smell like an electrical fire. I thought someone was outside doing something associated with the noise and smell. The refrigerator is by the back door and when I reached to open the back door I saw smoke boiling out the back of the refrigerator! I called for help, unplugged the appliance, and put the fire out by blowing on it.
My husband then saw water dripping on electrical components in the back of the refrigerator. The water line is not connected since my cabinets were recently replaced and the refrigerator is new I have not had time to drill the holes to run the water lines. When I called Frigidaire they told me the product was manufactured Jan. 15, 2013, today is Jan. 20, 2014 and the product is no longer under warranty so they did nothing. I am just thankful that I was standing next to the appliance when it caught fire and not sound asleep with a house full of people! No help from Frigidaire!
I had a technician come to my home. He found a faulty relay capacitor and replaced it. The technician said this model was originally built with this obsolete relay capacitor (Frigidaire was aware of this) and after many problems started building the units with the updated version of this relay. I spoke to Frigidaire concerning this matter and all they had to say was sorry for the inconvenience. They re-checked their records and found no evidence of the faulty obsolete relay capacitor. This is seriously dangerous and I would warn anyone who owns one of these units to make certain they have the correct relay installed in their refrigerator!
MISSISSAUGA -- We are very disappointed with how our situation was dealt with. We had purchased the Frigidaire professional line (fridge, stove and dishwasher). Spending a little more for the better line we were made to feel we were buying quality.
Our fridge shelves that weren't lined with the rubber cracked within the first 6 months and subsequently completely broke within a year. Then last month just prior to our thanksgiving (Canadian) our fridge completely stopped working. We ended up losing over $250 dollars' worth of food! Then the kicker was that no one could see us for 1 WEEK! We had to go out and purchase a small fridge to get us by for the next week $150. When the service man came to fix the problem it ended up being a loose wire behind a panel in the freezer. We were also informed that this made the fridge work hard for the last few years... translation raising our energy costs. This cost us $100.
When we went to notify customer service of our experience they could not of cared less. It was just a rude "nothing we can do... it's off warranty". This makes us wonder why even have this service. When my husband asked to speak to someone else she replied "no one will speak to you about this matter". Wow! We called head office to let them know of how their customers are being handled and no one has even bothered to call us back. Both my husband and I are in marketing and advertising and know what just one dissatisfied customer can mean to a company.
Obviously this is a company that is willing to take that gamble. In the future I will better research how companies take care of their customers, with social media being such a part of our every day you think a company would take an opportunity to make a customer happy. Instead we will certainly let our circle of 300+ people to stay away from this line. Definite fail on your part Frigidaire. Could have just apologized or sent us a little product like a shelf with liner and kept a customer that spent $6000 on your products happy.
