My new Sears Elite range was delivered and installed a week ago. Soon after the installer left I discovered that the metal Sears Elite logo attached to range door was upside down. I called Sears service department today and was told Sears would not rearrange the logo because there is no malfunction. This is premium product for which a paid a premium price. They said that Sears could send a technician to rearrange the logo but I would have to pay 75 dollars. They implied that my claim was frivolous and suggested that I called Electrolux because they actually manufactured my range. Your service department is appalling.Can you help me fix that issue under warranty?

  2. Manufacturer's warranties generally do not cover cosmetic defects. If there were a functional failure, the manufacturer's standard limited 1 year warranty would cover that. Cosmetic defects are covered by the Master Protection Agreement. However, if a cosmetic defect is noticed, it's recommended to call the delivery department as soon as possible, so they might be able to exchange it. Usually it needs to be within the first three days, but as this is something that is not a scratch or dent, but a logo being upside-down (not exactly the kind of thing that happens incidentally due to use or being around people), they might be able to help you. When someone from the Customer Care Team contacts you on this thread, give them the information they request.
