  4. Liked this: Home & Family Why does Sears care so little about customer service?

    I would like to respond to my initial post and the resolution to my situation. It took an extremely long time, but finally on July 26th the Sears @ Oxmoor contacted me to let me know they would excha…
  5. Liked this: Home & Family On July 3rd Sears installed a Kenmore Central A/C and Furnace. The installation did not pass the inspection from the Village and regardless of more than 7 calls to Customer Service and to the Sales Rep I have not been able to get an answer. I have left several voice messages to the number 8479528505 but no one has called me back up today. It seems that the reason why the installation did not pass the inspaction is a Breaker that was supposed to be 40 Amps instead of 50 amps but I have not been able to talk to anyone that can give me a straight answer.

    am happy to communicate that my issue was solved!!! The Sears contractor showed up last thursday at my home and fixed the issue reported by the inspector. Today the Inspector came back and the instal…

  9. Liked this: Outdoors OMG... will someone PLEASE help me?? I have a Craftsman Lawn Tractor, Model # 917.273140 that simply died while I was cutting my lawn. It has fuel, there is spark to the plug and there is fuel getting to the carb but for some reason it is not getting to the spark. I took the air cleaner off the carb and poured a cap full of gas directly into the top and it fired and ran till that cap full was gone. I unscrewed the solenoid from beneath the carb and gas came out so I know it's getting that far. The "plunger" on the top of the solenoid is stiff (it does NOT work like a plunger when I press it with my finger) and did not move when I had it unscrewed from the carb bowl and could visualize it (and I don't know if it's supposed to). Trying to get some info on this problem has been met with nothing but question marks. I live in Alaska and over a hundred miles from the nearest service dept. and need to know if it's just a bad solenoid or what?? If it's simply a parts issue, I can fix it but my knowledge on small engines is limited. PLEASE HELP!!

    Thank you so much SHC-FredM! (I hope you get to read this because it seems that the "Reply" feature as well as the "thumbs up" feature aren't working on this site.) I had a feeling that may have been …

    I'm sorry you're having this problem with the fridge. This is usually due to poor air supply to the fridge section. If the fan motor in the freezer stops, it will cause this problem. If the motor is r…
