A word of wisdom or rather a few words. Never, ever, ever buy a refrigerator without an extended warranty. Last year we shopped for and bought the coolest refrigerator. An Amana with all the bells and whistles. It did everything but clean house and make dinner. Oh, yes and work. The telling fact was when it started making a strange noise 1 month before it's first birthday. The repairman came out and in no uncertain terms explained that I didn't have the good sense to run a refrigerator. I had it set too cold. Well. Lets see, I can read a cardiac monitor, titrate blood pressure meds on pumps to keep people alive but I CANT WORK A REFRIGERATOR. Okay if he says so. After all he is THE repairman. Anyhoo...after the fridge either quit or piddled on my floor. Yes, I thought the dogs had an accident. Here I was with broken leg on crutches trying to wipe up the pee and fussing with the dogs when they didn't even do it. The thing met it's 6th repair in a 12 month period that was required to finally get a replacement. The new LG arrived all fresh and full of promise. It was a good time to really get rid of a bunch of stuff that always fills the back of the fridge. What is that hard chunk with green fuzzies growing on it anyway?
I can honestly say they did good by us. They gave us the regular price for our old fridge even though we bought it on sale. This one was on sale, so we actually got an even better fridge for the original sale price. We hope. We have our fingers crossed that it will be here for years to come. We were able to keep the remainder of our extended warranty and apply to this fridge. Yes, we will be extending it when it expires.
I wish that John Deere had the same warranty. Maybe that is something that they will think about. Customer service is everything. If we could only convince big corporations that we matter. I would love to have American Made on every item in my home. Remember when Made in Tiawan was a joke and not a fact? Go American!
