MESA, ARIZONA -- I called Jenn-Air to schedule service on my dishwasher and to see if I could order new racks. A contact person said I qualified for extended warranty and quoted $309.95. She said it covered parts and service calls for a year. I asked if that covered rusted racks. "Yes", she replied without hesitation. I expressed amazement, and repeated the question. She reassured me that the racks were covered. I told her since the racks were covered I would take out the contract.
She said a copy of the contract would be emailed. I waited an hour for the contract to appear and called back. I was told it took 2-3 days to process. Before I received a copy, a service call was scheduled. During the service call I was told the rusted rack pieces had damaged the filter & also, a Jet-dry dispenser needed replacing. On the return visit with the parts, I was told the racks were not covered. I declined the work & parts which totaled now $600, the price of a new dishwasher.
I called to cancel the contract due to fraudulent claims. I was told I would have to submit a written letter, and it would take 4-6 weeks for my refund, even though my money had been immediately taken. This was my experience. Hopefully yours will be better.
BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN -- December 7, 2013 I received my $6000.00 order for appliances. I had also planned to purchase a built-in oven in January. I immediately filled out my rebate info, sales slip and invoice and sent it to the company. Shortly later, I called regarding the rebate status, and they said they never received them. I sent the copies to them, waited another week and called. The response was to fax the rebates to them, and I complied. The deadline was January 31, 2014, fire and ice promo.
I called AAA appliance in Jamaica Plain, Ma, where I had purchased the appliances and they sent a set of rebates forms for me hoping to resolve this issue. We went back and forth, one person at Jenn-Air stated they couldn't see what the problem was and my $700 rebate would be forthcoming. Needless to say, I have not received the rebate, it is close to June 1st, but rest assured the built-in oven sale is null and void. I am looking at GE Monogram! This company is in trouble and totally lacks integrity.
One of the motivations for purchasing over $20k worth of Jenn-Air appliances was a rebate to reimburse installation charges. I filled out the rebate form, provided proof of purchase, serial #s, and made absolutely sure I included the separate invoice for installation. I later received an automatically generated post card from Jenn-Air stating that my submission is invalid because it didn't include a receipt for installation charges.
I called them to straighten the situation out and the customer service agent literally just kept repeating over and over and over that I need to submit the receipt. To make matters worse, I have 2 weeks to get it to them (via mail) and have it processed prior to rebate deadline. During the 2 week time frame we have weather, Christmas and New Year's to deal with. What a scam. No wonder Jenn-Air has fallen out of favor in recent decades. Why run a marketing campaign to lure customers and then piss them off?
BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN -- I recognize that unhappy customers are most likely to post reviews/comments so I thought I´d provide a little positive feedback. Our Jenn-Air electric range purchased about 15 years ago (maybe before the troublesome electronic control unit mentioned by others) has been a faithful and trouble-free appliance since then. In our locale, we have frequent brownouts and blackouts and the stove has weathered them without a problem. Also, we don´t have local Jenn-Air technical support (we are in Ecuador). We were seriously looking at buying more Jenn-Air products but, I have to admit, I am now looking at other brands, too.
EDINA, MINNESOTA -- I purchased a Jenn-Air double oven from Warner Stellian in Edina. The first delivery folks brought a KitchenAid instead of Jenn-Air I ordered. I refused delivery and waited for Jenn-Air... obviously a mistake. Ovens were installed in February 2012 and needed replacement motor for fan in August of 2012. It is now December of 2012 and am waiting for repair people to arrive, most likely another fan motor as the noise is the same. Also, neither upper nor lower ovens bake to temp indicated and appear to not hold temp at reliable level. A big Lemon for both Jenn-Air and Warner Stellian.
I purchased a Jenn-Air Refrigerator back in 2005 for almost $3,000. Recently I have had issues with it and was told that I need to have a whole new compressor replaced that would cost $1,000. When contacting Jenn-Air customer Service, I was told that it only has a 5 year Warranty and that "It is what it is". When spending this much money on a refrigerator in order to finally be able to afford your dream kitchen and only have the refrigerator last 6 years, it is completely unacceptable!!! Who do you people think you are!!!! This is not how to keep a customer happy. Refrigerators should last 10 to 12 years....... not six years!!!!!
I bought this built in refrigerator when I built my house in 2005. It wasn't working properly from day one. The freezer leaked, the refrigerator goes into freeze mode or it won't stay at 32 degrees F. I have had every part replaced and it is on the brink again. I have all of the service tickets and this refrigerator has been worked on at least 10 times. I would not buy this unit or brand again and want to give other consumers warning. The company recommends A&E Factory service but the techs say this refrigerator is too complicated to work on.
I also have had them tell me that it is a poor design. I am waiting for a tech now to fix it again. I have had to throw my food away multiple times. The amazing thing is I bought a $1,000 Whirlpool 10 years ago and it never needed any work done. Although the Jenn-Air is a nice looking refrigerator from the outside it's mechanical make-up on the inside is less than desirable. More expensive is not better. Stay away from this high end Jenn-Air's. They are not worth the time and money.
BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN -- I purchased a JDB1100AWS (Jenn-Air Dishwasher) for $799.99 (on-sale) in 2007. It is a nice unit and one of the higher-end units, so I expect quality. ON 12/2/2009 I had to pay to replace control panel and cpu (cost $165 - labor only). ON 6/17/2010 I had to pay to replace control panel and cpu (cost $165-labor only). ON 4/6/2011 I just paid again to replace control panel and cpu (cost $165 - labor only).
Within a short period of time, I have paid $495 in repairs to a unit that is not even 5 years old. I have replaced the same two parts THREE times in that period. THERE HAS TO BE A DEFECT of some sort.
Is this Maytag/Jenn-Air/Whirlpool quality?
Is the non-customer care response I got regarding this repair adequate?
I am no crazed consumer looking for free stuff, just a middle class family trying to not get hosed by the response & bureaucracy of a faceless corporation that is not ackowledging a LEMON.
BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN -- Junk, junk, junk. I've already registered one complaint about this Jenn Air oven/stove, just 11 months ago, in March of 2010. Now, yesterday, the EXACT SAME THING broke again. This is the electronic push pad control for the oven. This has now broken 3 times in 5 years, and I have also had to have service calls on 2 other things breaking. FIVE MAJOR REPAIRS IN LESS THAN 5 YEARS ON A NEW RANGE! The most recent repair, OF THE EXACT SAME DEFECTIVE PIECE, in March of 2010, isn't under warranty because warranty is only for 90 days. It's expensive, over $300. I tried contacting Jenn Air the last time this broke, and basically they blew me off. They have no interest whatever in fixing their shoddy stuff. So, basically, I have the choice of a $350 repair AGAIN, or throwing out a range that isn't even 5 years old.
553 BENSEN RD., BENSEN HARBOR, MICHIGAN -- I am beside myself with grief - literally. This appliance has had me walking on egg shells for 5 years. It was a $6100 purchase and has already been through approximately $5000 in repairs. I don't own an extra refrigerator, so food spoilage, trips back and forth to the neighbors' refridgerators and amount spent on dry ice is insane. My control boards have been replaced twice. The damper assembly, drain pan, door gasket and fan motor have all been replaced. Of course, each repair involves a minimum of two trips to my house by each repairman. I live in FEAR of this appliance breaking down. I walk by it and absolutely hate it with a passion. Incredibly, I've called Jenn Air and they have no record of my calls/complaints because they all go to the warranty company and not Jenn Air. Jenn Air pays the bills for the repairs but they don't know the history! Wouldn't they want to keep tabs on which products are breaking down? I am going to try to have it declared a lemon this week - I will let everyone know how it goes and how responsive Jenn Air is to my compliants. I want a new refrigerator! - One with proven reviews by consumers! I have been so insanely patient but my patience has run out. I am like a bomb ready to explode. If you are out there, and considering a Jenn Air built in refrigerator - DON'T. Of course it went out again this afternoon - No surprise - which is why I am writing this versus enjoying my beutiful family.
