Electrolux Complaint - Do Not Purchase a Electrolux Refrigerator and Do Not Do Business With Gerhardt's Appliances
FRAZER, PA -- I purchased two high end appliances from this store; 1 - a Miele dishwasher and 2 - a Electrolux Refrigerator. After waiting for delivery like I was waiting for cable installation; between the hours of 12 - 5, I finally called at 5:30 to ask if the appliance was going to delivered this day. I was told that yes in fact it would be and that they were running late, of course it never occurred to them to call me to let me know they were running late. It finally arrived around 6:30, while my wife and 3 little kids tried to prepare for dinner, while emptying the old appliance as we could not empty it until the new refrig arrived. It was installed, but apparently never inspected! Here it is almost three weeks later and the ice maker doesn't work, the seals on the freezer do not seal, creating the appliance to leak and ice to build up in the freezer compartment. I have called 5 times, they have sent out a service person once who was not able to fix the ice maker, a pleasant person I would add. FedEx rang the bell the other day with a delivery that appears to be ice maker replacement parts, although no one mentioned to us that they would be shipping to our house! I called the store to ask what was going on and when I could expect the ice maker to be fixed...the store instructed me to call back in three days!
After fuming over this for three days I call and they tell me that someone, once again like the cable companies, "will be out there next week, on Monday sometime between the hours of 1 - 5, so we schedule it. I find the appliance leaking again due to the seals and finally had enough, I called and asked them to take the "lemon" back and provide me a new one that works! "Sorry, we can't do that as it is not our policy." I have had it, I am canceling payment with AMEX until I get what I paid for: a new, in good working order, $3k refrigerator! I would not recommend:
1 - Do not do business with Gerhard's Appliances
2 - Do not purchase an Electrolux Refrigerator
