Best Buy/Kitchen Aid - Had repair for refrigerator out 5 times, won't take back, don't value customer's time.
Store manager, customer service - Complaint
STRONGSVILLE, OHIO -- Ordered expensive Kitchen Aid refrigerator. Delivery was set up 6 weeks later. No one showed day of delivery. Best Buy customer service assured us they were on way, two hours later insisted Best Buy call warehouse, they confirmed no one picked up appliances we ordered. Best Buy uses a third party delivery service, so we were at their mercy on when they could fit us in sometime later that week(after our old refrigerator was gone & we had no food.) Their response was, "Sorry about that". Used two vacation days for delivery.
Three times after that, we waited for repair men to fix three defective parts on the refrigerator. A HEATER was installed around the ice maker to keep it from freezing up & leaking. A new panel was installed to tell the ice maker to stop filling, as it filled twice each time. The bottom freezer door made a LOUD grinding noise, new & different runners were installed but was told that is the best we can do, it's the design!
Best Buy stated from day one they would not take back the LEMON refrigerator as we did not buy the extended warranty, but we complained within the 2 week time frame but Best Buy counts the day of purchase as day one & not the delivery date(which again, was a problem getting the refrigerator even delivered). I spent over $3,000.00 for a LOUD refrigerator that I have taken 5 vacation days for & is still unacceptable. I would have had better luck buying a refrigerator at a garage sale. Kitchen Aid knows of the problems but still sends these defective appliances out at the risk of customer satisfaction. Who wants a brand new "top of the line" product that has multiple issues, defective parts, numerous sales calls? And Kitchen Aid WARNS, "if we come out & there is not an issue, you will have to pay for the service call." Which makes one wonder if they should schedule an appt.
Many hours has been spent dealing with all these issues, calls, time off work. Best Buy washed their hands of it after 2 weeks & Kitchen Aid does not care about a consumer's time & I feel I am at their mercy coming out & masking all the numerous problems, that never are fully repaired!
