I bought a house and moved into it - and realized the fridge was not cooling. I was very desperate to repair it, and Appliance Repairman promised fast service, $80 for technician's visit, which seemed fair at that time, - so, I made an appointment.
The technician came on time, was pretty good at making sure I sign all the necessary paperwork, and was very accurate to get my signature before proceeding with any works.
After first diagnostics he told me, "the main board needed replacement" and that it would cost $280.00 plus tax. "However, - he added, - it doesn't guarantee that the fridge will work". He said, that after the board is replaced, then maybe the fridge would work, maybe not. He got my signature that I agree to it. As I said, I was desperate - and exhausted after the move.
When the board was replaced, he announced that the compressor is dead and needs to be replaced too. And the cost was... $1370!!! I told him, that I could buy a new fridge for that amount (in fact, for even less). "But you have a very good, almost brand new fridge!.. You won't buy the same for cheaper than $2500! I am saving you money!"
When I went shopping for fridges, clerks and technicians in stores told me that the real technician would know right away the problem with the compressor, and $1370 is too much for a new compressor.
Unfortunately, I can not do anything except for writing bad reviews about this company and hoping that nobody else will be tricked the same way.
Is there a possibility to write a Google review about them? I see a lot of reviews here, but none - on Google.
