  • Kenmore Coldspot fails in less than 2 years

  • I am extremely disappointed in Sears. I purchased a Kenmore Coldspot side-by-side refridgerator less than two years ago and it failed the day before christmas. A repairman came out that I had scheduled from the sears website and found that the compressor had gone out. The fridge cost me $811 and the repair estimate to fix was $802. It is not in warranty and when I called sears corporate to complain…they told me it was out of warranty. Then they insulted me by offering me a 10% off coupon to go purchase a new refridgerator.

    1. Why would I want to go buy a new fridge from sears that will only last me 2 years and when it fails, they won’t stand behind their product.

    2. The 10% off to go purchase a new fridge doesn’t even equal some of the deals they have online. That is a joke.

    In the last five years. I’ve purchased an oven, two riding lawnmowers, a refridgerator, a dishwasher, and in the last month, a new snowblower…all from sears. If this is the kind of service and support I can expect from your products, you can bet you have just lost a customer for life. Additionally, I’ve had the snowblower for less than 30 days and you can bet that is getting returned and i’m taking my money elsewhere.

    A very upset customer
