Repair a Refrigerator

Please do not hire this company. I read reviews for this company when I Googled refrigerator repairs and they were good. I didn't read HomeStars reviews though. I had my fridge fixed on May 6/19. The repairman quoted me a price but I didn't realize the parts were not included. He told me that it would last another 5 years and I had a 6-month warranty. It broke down on July 17/19 (after only 72 days) and I called them and of course they never called back. I called back July 18/19 and said I only had a 30-day warranty. They offered to come back out for a $50 service call and a "discount" on labour and parts. This is very dishonest and I will be reporting them to other media sources.

beware of appliance "tune up" stand up freezer

Tech came over April 14th to look at warm standing freezer - he thought it would be worth spending $316.40 and it should fix it. He never left a bill or quote if we needed a compressor repair in future. I've contacted him several times and he tells me head office should have contacted me for a "free" follow up appt. I emailed May 31, they apologized and said I would be contacted immediately....no contact until I called today...they made a generous offer of $1000 less $200 for compressor.....about the cost of a new freezer....I would give 0 stars if possible...I feel like I was duped

built-in oven

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
Our oven broke April 24 - serviceman came and said we needed a new part which would take about a week - several weeks went by - customer service were not helpful, they really do not care - the only thing they are good at is saying "i'm sorry". Finally in June - after many excuses and delays I demanded my money back. Money which they had for almost two months. They gave me only about one-half of the money I paid them (even though they said they were only deducting $80.00 off for the first service call). We had two service calls, which resulted in still having an oven which did not work and they charge us almost $200.00 for each service call.

Beware: Technician Apparently Completely Unqualified: Huge $$$ and appliance still not fixed

Technician, Jerome, came out in answer to our call for service for our fridge that was leaking water. He opened up the freezer section, saw the ice build up and told me it would cost approximately $360. to fix the problem. He subsequently told me the main board was faulty and that the cost would be 3 times that. No warranty on the supposed factory part, money paid by debit, and the problem is not fixed. If anyone has a description of the Jerome who did shoddy work for them, please post it so we can beware.

BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY

We believed from the advertising and our phone conversation with a company representative that the service call was $80.00. Before signing the contract we were mislead by the serviceman about the labour costs occurring when "the parts required were installed." After signing the contract for parts and repairs to be done in the future we were charged $280 plus tax ($316.39) for alleged "labour done on that day." No labour was done! We were there and witnessed what the serviceman did. He had no tools or parts and just speculated on what needed to be done and charged us the $316.39 for doing nothing. We cancelled the contract but still had to pay the inflated labour cost. Beware of this company.

Don't use this company!!!!!!

Our refrigerator broke on a Sunday morning. I found this company online and requested and appointment. 'Jerome' came a few hours later and inspected the fridge. He said it would most likely be the 'Main Board' but he couldn't tell for sure and needed an authorization to perform the work. After about 45 minutes he claimed he had done 'everything to make the refrigerator work again' and that the compressor was slow to start and if the refrigerator didn't return to a proper temperature within 24 hours (enough time for him to get away) the compressor would have to be replaced for $1300. We were told that they only accepted cash or debit and stupidly paid him. We called a proper repair man on Monday and he fixed the problem within 30 minutes by replacing a part that 'Jerome' said was working. The invoice that 'Jerome' wrote out in front of us had someone else's name and address (this was obviously intentional and I unfortunately noticed after he left). I then noticed that the refrigerator model number listed on the invoice was not even the same brand as ours. As HST was collected on the invoice, I'm not sure how this will square away with Canada Revenue Agency??? I called customer service the next day to inform them that the part that 'Jerome' said was working actually needed to be replaced so we essentially paid for nothing and I wanted a refund. I was told that we 'paid for the labour we received'. In retrospect, it's obvious that 'Jerome' knew very little about refrigerators and was incapable of fixing one. The conduct of this company is shameful. I will be making several formal complaints.

Do yourself a favour and stay far away from this company

If I could give them a minus I would. Stay away from this company!! Wish I'd found this review website before I got involved with these short-term thinkers.
On my initial phone call I was told that if I proceeded with the quote (that their Technician was going to provide the next day during the service call), then the $80 service call fee would go towards the quote. If I decided to not proceed then I'd pay the $80. I thought that was fair and agreed.
Sam, "one of their most senior Technician" I was told later, assessed our equipment and handed me the quote stating that it would cost $316.40 + the cost of the parts to fix, and would be completed within a week. It was too steep a price for me so I agreed to pay the $80 that was initially agreed upon. He replied that I HAD to pay $316.40. I told him that that was not what was relayed to me the day before over the phone. He stated that he was not aware of what I was referring to. We went back and forth a couple times then I decided I'd just pay the $316.40 + the parts cost, as the equipment needed to be repaired within a week before a big event.
Long story short, not fixed within a week. Then after making five phone calls to them over the next three weeks with many promises and reassurances, I finally started proceedings with my credit card company to dispute the charge.

DO NOT CALL THESE PEOPLE

They showed up to fix my washing machine and diagnosed in 5 minutes. Then told me over the phone I had to pay in order for him to continue the work.
Then I realized after he left that the machine was not fixed. Unfortunately I wasn’t home to double check and because I was rushing to find someone I wasn’t as thorough as I usually am.

Dishonest

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.
