Amana Company, L P Complaint - Refrigerator Unrepairable after 3 years???? - 3 Door Amana Refrigerator model AFI2538AES
3 Door Amana Refrigerator model AFI2538AES - Complaint
I bought this refrigerator a little over 3 years ago. It is a nice looking unit and I love the bottom freezer feature. Yesterday the freezer started not cooling and then of course the fridge did as well. I did not buy an extended warranty so I expected to pay for a repair. The service guy comes out and his diagnosis is "unrepairable"!!!! I spent $2,100 on this appliance and after 3 years it is unrepairable? Here is the description of the problem from the repair tech, "refrigerator non-repairable, compressor discharge tube leak and sucked compressor oil into lines, cap tube plugged." His assessment was that you could replace the compressor but with the cap tube plugged (which apparently is not able to be replaced) it will fail again quickly or just not work at all.
Needless to say I am not pleased at all. This will be my last Whirlpool/Amana purchase that I ever make. Why would you make a product that is unrepairable?
