What am I supposed to do when the repair shop breaks my sewing machine (livelihood) and I am told that all I can do is send it back in, be without it AGAIN for however many weeks (last time it was a little over 5 weeks), and trust that they will fix it this time not break it!!!!!!!!!!! Also, I was told that I was offered the wrong support plan. I should have been offered the one where if I have a problem I send the machine in and get reimbursed so I can get another one that works, that day!!!! Again, I have to pay for Sears’s mistakes. Is there anything anyone there at Sears can do for me as I need a machine NOW that works to be able to get paid? Believe me, if I could afford it, I would throw this one away and buy a new one somewhere else but I can’t so I HOPE you can help me!

I sent the sewing machine in because it wouldn’t do anything besides turn on and a code came up and that was it. When I got the machine back it worked, sort of. The tension was all messed up. No matter what I did I couldn’t get it to stop puckering, even at -3. I looked at the sheet that told what they did and it said they “fixed the tension adjustment problem”. The problem is, there was no problem with the tension adjustment when I sent it in. There is now!!!!! It is not useable for the work I do.
Also, probably not a big deal to most but my machine came back filthy. I wish I never purchased this at Sears.

      To Whom It May Concern:

      I am looking forward to speaking with someone who, I hope, can help me. I spent almost 2 hours on the phone yesterday on three different calls with at least 4 people in 4 different areas. They were all very nice but it turned out none of them could help me. I was, and am, extremely frustrated and upset. I am losing a lot of work time and that means money that I can’t afford to lose.

      FYI – I had to go on disability 5 years ago because I developed a complex sleep apnea that causes me to sleep 16 to 20 hours per day and I am not in control of which hours they are. For some reason no one wants a bookkeeper, accounting manager or computer expert that can’t stay awake all day. Because I am a worker I had to find SOMETHING to do in the 4 – 6 good hours that I do have a day to make a little extra money and to keep me going. This way even if my good hours fall in the middle of the night I can still work. I am only telling you this so maybe you will realize why this has been and continues to be such a problem for me. If I could afford to buy another machine I would but I can’t. I can’t even afford to rent one!

      Below is the info you requested:

      My contact # is (2**) 692-**** or (2**) 4**-****

      I am available all day every day except for today; I have an appt. at 3:30 pm. I should be back by 5pm. Otherwise most of the day, any day, is fine as I work from home (when I have a machine that works). If I don’t answer, please leave a message and I will call when you tell me to. I am really looking forward to resolving this issue.

      My screen name is booker6345

      The phone # used at time of purchase was either (2**) 6**-**** OR (2**) 4**-****
