Frigerdaire Complaint - Professional Series - Inferior
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK -- In mid November of 2005 I purchased a Frigadaire Professional Series stove and dishwasher. I immediately had trouble with both of them. Thank God I didn't buy their refrigerator. The dishwasher, which was supposed to be a quiet series, was noisy with a loud hooting -- like an owl. After 4 service calls they finally replaced the motor and for the past 3 weeks it has been working just fine. (They paid about $400 on repair calls for a $700 dishwasher). I was given a tip by the repairman and it is going to sound crazy but after you load your dishwasher add a little cooking oil -- YES I said cooking oil -- about 2 tablespoons, to the bottom of the dishwasher. It keep the gears lubricated and that is because the gears are all made with plastic. Do this especially if you prewash your dishes before you put them in the dishwasher. Now to the stove and a more serious problem. I have a gas stove. This piece of *^&@(*&^%^%$% didn't work properly since day one. If I have my burners on simmer and I open my oven door the burners blow out on the two smaller burners. The 2 larger burners blow out but come on right away on their own without my having to restart them. This happened the first time I used it. At this point, I know the repairman so well, as he has been here multiple times, that I invited him to dinner the last time I saw him. They finally installed a new part, which looked just like the original one, and that didn't correct the problem. So now they tell me they are going to give me a replacement or same stove -- THE SAME STOVE. HELLOOOOOOO. The problem is that there is a negative pressure issue here and I know that they had this same problem with another model a few years back. It has something to do with the size of their vents with the sealed burners. So I eagerly await for my new stove. If the problem is still there I will be requesting a refund. If that does work I will go to my local TV stations here in NYC and have "ASH HOWARD" to help me. MY FINAL THOUGHTS -- STAY AWAY FROM ANYTHING THIS COMPANY MAKES AND ALL SUB COMPANIES THAT THEY OWN.
