Sears Complaint - Sears Lawn Mowers - Two Big Thumbs Down!!!!
LONG BEACH -- I have a Sears Lawnmower, which is new and still under warranty. I had to purchase it to replace my original Sears mower which wouldn't start and had also been in the shop several times for the same problem. I am really irritated and hope no one else should have to go through this same problem. Its a serious waste of my time and its irritating as heck.
I will say that the Sears operator was helpful about it but if anyone is considering buying a Sears should take this into account if you read this, hopefully someone will see it and avoid the same problem I have.
If you have already purchased a Sears Lawnmower or other motorized product, the the operator advised me to do these three things
1 Call Sears (800) 469-4663 National Number and talk to someone who can escalate this to Sears One Source which is also at the national level and they can help by either replacing the unit or giving you a replacement or rental to use while yours is away from home -
After calling Sears they tell me they only work with people who have purchased the Additional Warranty plan. So if you are like me and you only extended your warranty for 2 yrs then Sears does not care how many times you have to be inconvenienced and according to them it does not come under the Lemon Law.
2 Message the service center near you and escalate this issue with your service order and have someone call you within 24 hrs
- PS Escalation does not get you any faster service. I am going to complain that there is a design flaw in the carburetors of all Sears motorized product eg lawnmowers, edgers, blowers, weed wackers etc
3 Get a hold of the service center near you and have them call you
After calling the repair shop in Fontana they informed me that NO SEARS PRODUCT WITH A MOTOR IS COVERED FOR REPLACEMENT EVEN WITH THE EXTENDED WARRANTY - BUYER BEWARE THEY ARE NOT SYMPATHETIC.
My Sears Lawn Edger which was also purchased has the same issue with the carburetor. Design issues call 800 659 7057
So all in all think twice before you buy from Sears unless you enjoy the atmosphere of the Sears repair center nearest you.
