My Mother is almost 90 years old and has a kenmore water tank that is leaking it has been five days with no hot water. The tank continues to fill so sears recommended shutting the water off to the home. It has been 3 days with no water in the home and they are telling her they won’t be there for at least two more days. This is unacceptable and inexcuseable for sears to treat a life long cutomer this way.

      Ridiculous that it has taken this much time to replace a water heater. Sears has proven to me they are not worthy of my business. I have over 30 years in the retail business and have never seen or heard of customer service as you have provided. There is nothing more important than the customer and you surely have proven you do not believe that.

      So Liz do tell me what sears would like to do. My mother has now been told they may be able to replace a hot water tank. So this is over a week with no hot water and 5 days with no water at all. Doesn't seem to me like sears really cares at all at this point.
