A guy from A-Appliance came to check out my oven because it wouldn't igniteAfter mins, a snoody attitude, and a $fee, he told me my problem was the spark moduleI ordered the part and had it put on the stoveThat didn't solve the problem! I then contacted another company to do a diagnosis, that when I learned the spark module does not even control Tue oven at all!!! I contacted A-and told them the problem was not solved and the receptionist, rude as well, told me there was no way the guy could have misdiagnosed and that was not their problemI wouldn't recommend them to anyone!!! Ever!

Dear The Cincinnati Revdex.com, In regards to the complaint that you received from Ms*** complaint ID *** We were originally contacted by the manufacture of Ms*** washer on 4/4/16. The service request stated that when on and heavy the washer
would not complete the cycle. She requested a service date of 4/15/16. When our technician arrived he ran the unit through the manufactures test diagnostic mode and could find no failure codes He concluded that the main control board may be hanging up at certain times throughout the cycle. A new control part number was ordered from the manufactures parts distributor and installed on 4/19/16. Because there were no apparent failure codes the technician advised Ms*** that if she continued to have problems to please let us know and we would be happy to come back out even though her washer’s manufactures warranty was about to expire we guarantee our work for a period of ninety days. We heard nothing from Ms*** during the warranty period The first time we were contacted after by Ms*** was yesterday 9/12/almost five months later she stated that “some of the cycles would not work and the machine is now leaking after she moved it to a new apartment”. The individual she first spoke with tried to advise her that calling the manufacture would be her best course of action as they may opt to give her a concession since she claimed it was the same problem as before. Ms*** did not want to hear that she insisted that we should come back out because she stated “our technician told her he would stand behind the repair”. The customer refused and asked to speak to me I again tried to explain to her that she needs to get the manufacture involved since this is now four months out of warranty and five months since we had been out to service it. She again refused and stated the technician told her we would stand behind our repair. I explained to her that we would be happy to come out and look at the washer, but there would be no way we could replace any parts at no charge to her without her contacting the manufacture and getting an authorization. If she would have contacted us at some point during the warranty period we would have been happy to work with her to get this resolved. Ms*** was not listening to this so the technician that was at her home was listening to this conversation and I suggested she speak to him. As Ms*** stated he had no distinct recollection of any conversation with him stating that we would guarantee the repair indefinitely as she suggests, this is not feasible in any profession. He again offered to come out and look at the washer to try and determine what the issue may be but she would need to call the manufacture to see if they would offer her a concession for the repairs as the unit is now out of warranty She stated she was going to call the Revdex.com and hung up We have a small office space and I could hear each employee here while they were on the phone with Ms*** while the first person on the phone did raise her voice to Ms*** I do not believe she yelled at her She was trying to let her know what needed to be done so we could resolve her issue but Ms*** did not want to listen. When I finished the phone call I was on I spoke with her and gave the same suggestions as before. I placed her on hold and walked over to the technician’s desk to ask him to speak with her, he picked up the phone and I did not hear any “laughing” as she suggests The part that was installed was not used as Ms*** suggests it was brand new ordered by us for her washer as she suggests In the five months that have passed since we serviced her washer she has not once contacted us until yesterday to let us know that she was having issues and since has moved the washer from an apartment in *** Kentucky to an apartment in *** *** Ohio. The washer now is leaking in addition to her stating that some of the cycles are not working. Unfortunately, since the unit is so far out of the manufactures warranty at this point our hands are tied we are unable to help her. If she would call the manufacture as we suggested and they offer to give her a policy concession, we would be happy to take care of her washer for her. The employee that “yelled at me, interruptes me, and laughed at me because 'she is a supervisor” is sorry that she feels she yelled at her and that was not the intention. I am sorry that Ms*** feels cheated, lied to and disrespected that was in no way the intention and we will continue to work on our customer service policies Sincerely, *** *** President A-Appliance Service Company Inc

I am writing in response to the service complaint made against Craft Cleaners. We are a small business, and we value each and every one of our customers. [redacted] has been a customer of ours for over a year, and she has not had any issues with our cleaning service in the past. [redacted]...

has claimed that we ruined her bedspread and is seeking reimbursement of $2000 for the item. A couple of days after we delivered her bedspread, she came into our store to express her dissatisfaction with our services. In order to rectify the issue, we offered to re-clean her bedspread, to which she declined. We then asked if there was anything else we could do. She informed us that she would take her bedspread to another cleaner and requested a refund for the cost of the cleaning services. Immediately, we refunded her the cleaning costs. Never at any time did she ask for us to pay the full amount of the bedspread. I assure you that we did not ruin her bedspread. I personally examined the bedspread and did not see any fading or streaks as the customer noted in her statement. The customer may have expected the bedspread to be made to look “brand new,” but dry cleaning cannot reverse normal usage of the bedspread throughout the years. I am not familiar with the other cleaner that [redacted] had consulted with nor can I attest to their expertise. I know we are a reputable dry cleaning company and have been in the business for over 30 years. We work with many different fabric types and our cleaning methods are industry standard. We have many loyal customers and always do our best to ensure their satisfaction. Sincerely,Craft Cleaners

Complaint: [redacted]I am rejecting this response because:1.  It is ludicrous to suggest that the price of the part, and time required to install the part are irrelevant.  If such were true, how does one arrive at a price for the work performed.2.  If a book price is used, supply that documentation or provide a reference please, I don't believe it.3.  I repeatedly asked the technician what the cost of the part was, he was evasive and refused to answer the question, stating that ?I don't know how much parts are".  Yes I accepted the repair, it is logical to assume that the price of the repair is reflective upon the cost of the part and the labor required for installation.  This obviously is not the case with this merchant.  I find the technician, dispatcher and owner himself to be evasive, and frankly dishonest, as all refused to provide the price of the part.  They have yet to provide that cost, I therefore sought the price through parts houses via the web.  The merchant takes advantage of his clients, due to the fact that clients assume there is some reasonable relationship between labor and parts cost.  With a broken refrigerator, one is not exactly in the position to "shop" for repair costs, since a trip fee holds regardless of outcome.4.  Technician is knowledgeable and knows his job?  I suppose thats why he broke the part into several pieces removing it, and was reluctant to even show me the part removed.
I repeat that I find this merchant and his technicians to be dishonest and evasive.  I can see no reason why there would be at least a 15 fold markup from the price of the parts to the total repair cost.  Our homeowners association will remove this merchant from it's approved list of repair service vendors.  Regards,[redacted]

[redacted]RE: Revdex.com concern 1164oo31 received from [redacted]We are sorry for the confusion on Mr. [redacted]s service that was requested on his washer. Mr. [redacted] was already given a consideration on the amount he was charged....

We use the National Major Appliance Service Price Guide to price our jobs. According to this price guide the total repair should have been billed at $84.95 for the diagnosis $91.00 for the labor to install the parts and $69.49 for the parts. The charges on this repair would have been $245.44 plus tax of $17.18 for a total of $262.62.As the complaint from Mr. [redacted] stated the total he was charged a total $188.86 which is $73.76 less than the price guide suggests. We allow our technicians to make considerations to these prices as they see fit in certain situations (to keep a customer from having to purchase a new one etc.). Because Mr. [redacted] feels that there was some confusion and it was not explained to him thoroughly we are more than willing to refund the diagnostic fee of $84.95 plus tax $5.95 total $90.90 off of what the price should have been quoted at according to the price guide of $262.62. $262.62-$90.90=S171.72. Mr. [redacted] paid $188.86 so the refund would be $17.14.Mr. [redacted] is requesting a refund of $85.00 if we were to refund him this amount the job would break down as:Total charged $103.86 tax would be $6.97 parts would be $69.49 labor and diagnostic charge would be $27.58. Unfortunately, there is no way we can send a technician out to a home diagnosis the issue with an appliance drive to the parts house return to the home repair the washer and guarantee the repair for $27.58 as Mr. [redacted] in requesting. I believe from Mr. [redacted]s concern he is a reasonable customer and will understand this as it has been explained.If there are additional questions or concerns, we would be happy to discuss. We will issue a check to Mr. [redacted] for the amount of $17.14 rightaway. We will also continue to try and be as clear as possible when explaining our charges to try and limit confusion if at all possible.Sincerely,Todd [redacted]President,A-1 Appliance Service Company Inc.

[redacted]In response to your letter ID [redacted]All repairs have a base price. We do not bid jobs by the cost of parts or labor.Our prices are compatible and all customers are told the price of repair before the work is done. At that time customer either chooses to have repair done or not.[redacted]...

[redacted] chose to have repair done. After the repair was complete he decided to look online at the price of parts. As [redacted] stated it took 2 days for us to get the part and it is irrelevant as to how long it took the tech to replace the part. This just shows that our technicians are knowledgeable and know their jobs. The repair was made and [redacted]'s appliance is working and he has not had any complaints about that.Thank YouA1 Appliance Service

A-1 Appliances has completely twisted the story, and I am appalled at the level of dishonesty they are portraying. I called at the beginning of July about the controls not working and the leak, but was unable to schedule anything because I was about to move. The washer leaked before my move. I had too much going on with a promotion, relocation and enrolling my kid in school and A-1 was very accomodating and told me to call when I settle and they were happy to help me (since it was the same problem that they were unable to fix). I called and apologized on September 11th that it had been so long (since July), but that I was finally settled and I had scheduled days off that I could schedule the repair. On September 12th, the lady called back and said that I would have to pay for it. She was very rude, did not listen, and interrupted me so many times, I don't see how she could possibly know what the background to the siituation was. There was never a timeframe, in fact, I expressed several times how thankful I was that they were working around my needs. Now they have twisted the story and blamed my move, when the leak happened before my move (and they knew this since I called before my move). Now I know I should have never been thankful for their empty promises.I cannot believe how dishonest thiis company is being. I would have been fine with a timeframe, but there was not one given and they expressed they would fix it since it was not fixed and I reported it. They seemed so nice, especially the technician. Now I know it was all a scam.

We are having a problem with our main refrigerator, which is 8 years old. We don't have any warranty so decided to call A1 appliances for a checkup and repair. Their technician came on 26th July and was not able to determine the cause of the malfunction (food getting spoiled and water collecting at the base of crisper due to refrigerator not being cold enough) and did some cleaning and heat dry blowing and charge us $79+90+tax=$180. The problem re-appeared within 3 weeks and the technician showed up again and did the same thing, this time unable to tell us what is causing the issue. We told them we want our money ($90) back as it did not fix anything, they only gave us $42 and refused to refund the entire amount saying that was labor charge (for what.. for not doing anything). They told us to call an authorized repair technician for whirlpool , that we can do anyway wiithout their help
