Rescheduling “your cancelled appointment”

My Kenmore Elite range model 790-9747 suddenly started making a grating noise a week ago when baking. As the noise is from the rear right, the tech over the phone thinks it is the fan, ordered the part and scheduled appt. for July 8, 1-5pm. When the part arrived on July 3, I notified service, as requested, that it had. Today, 7/8, I have 4 voicemails on HOME phone from the w/e, 2 from sears and 2 from local service asking why I was not home “as scheduled for service” on Sat July 6. I did not make any appt. for Sat (knowing I would not be here) and gave Sears my CELL phone number (which they did not call).
When I called this morning, they had cancelled the appt. for today and cannot reschedule until 7/16!! I am not happy that I either risk further damage to the stove or simply not use the bake cycle for 9 more days when Sears has fouled this appt. up on so many levels…all I got was apologies. Is it really likely that there is NO repairperson in the greater Boston area that is available for 9 days, or is it really that Sears only does business with a limited number? The service contract may cover everything, but when is an issue.
