Frigidaire Informative - Frigidaire does not honor dehumidifier warranties
I just came across a review elsewhere, in which the consumer has a 6-month old dehumidifier that stopped working. He contacted Frigidaire about service within his 5-year warranty, and here is their reply:
"I would like to offer you a 60% rebate towards a new unit." My response to that was, quoting the manual, "The unit has a FIVE YEAR WARRANTY period during which 'Frigidaire will repair or replace any part in the Sealed Refrigeration System....,' so why should I have to pay 40 percent?"
Their reply: "We apologize we will not be able to arrange service for your dehumidifier. Regrettably, escalating service costs have rendered repairing dehumidifiers a thing of the past as these units are no longer serviced.
Please let us know if you wish to accept the rebate offer so we may assist with issuing a rebate letter outlining details of the rebate as soon as possible. Please also note that not only will you receive the 60% rebate but as an added bonus when you receive the new dehumidifier the warranty will start over again from day one."
I wrote them again, requesting that they honor their written warranty. They replied "Thank you for contacting Frigidaire. We apologize that we are not able to assist."
Flabbergasted, I looked elsewhere on the internet and found similar complaints. It's always a good idea to research appliances before purchase, but if the warranty is virtually useless, it is even more so.
