Question about Jenn-Air JFC2089HTB French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

What exactly is "covered" by the 5 year warranty? What does that mean? The repair person charged me a couple hundred dollars to replace the small electrial thing on top of the compressor. I thought that was in the "sealed system" that the warranty covers.

The compressor,internal and external coils for refrigerant routing are the sealed system. All other parts including the electrical part you had replaced is not part of the "sealed system".

How to Buy an Extended Car Warranty?

If you decide to purchase an extended warranty be very cautious and make sure you ask questions. I purchased one for about nine hundred dollars and six weeks later my car broke down on the road. After getting towed in and telling me my car computer had mal functioned and I needed a new one. I assumed it was covered so I told them to repair it. Six hundred dollars later I showed them my warranty and they said it was no good. Why?
There was a clause in there that anything to do electrical was not covered in small print of course. Computer is classified as an electrical item. My warranty covered Power Train only and they did not tell me that. Power train covers transmission - Motor and the wheel bearings stuff like that. I will never purchase one again as they wanted an extra amount of money for electrical items coverage.

Blue line vertical running down my laptop screen Compaq Presario

Unfortunately, there is no solution for this. it means that a strip of pixels has died and the only solution is to replace the whole display.
if the laptop is still under warranty there is a very good chance the warranty will cover that. and if not then youre looking at a couple hundred dollars to replace the screen.

I have a Mitsubishi Projection TV 60 inch that I purchased about 3 years ago, now out of warranty. Technician came out said some type of module and it would be about $800 to fix. Model WD52525. The TV...

There so many problems with this exact model. Finally last year Mitsubishi to avoid class action lawsuits decided to offer an entire Chassis replacement. Essentially it replaces about 80% of the set at one shot; the units are or were only available from a authorized service center and wholesale for about 200 dollars.

Unit is sold on an exchange basis so a refundable core value is also added.

Local shops here able to do this are getting about 5-6 hundred parts and labor.

This is nothing a do it yourself person can go in and replace parts.

I purchased an Air Condition of samsung last year in 2008 The

Warranties vary from state to state and manufacturer to manufacturer. The warranty for your AC probably has fine print. I bet there is several things that the manufacturer does not cover even though another part was defective causing this cost. Some charge labor or like yours for recharging the system. It is a way the manufacturers make you think it's a warranty so it's free so you call them and they still make some money (my personal opinion). Car manufacturers are good at this. You might complain in writing to Samsung and they may reconcider and refund you. In writing is better than an e-mail. Be clear why and what you want (a refund as it was a part of the repair due to your defective part) and send a copy of the bill. They can be persuaded to do the right thing sometimes. I think you are right but warranties usually cover every aspect wether you read all that small print or not. Your state laws may help as they can override the MFG warranty giving you more rights to the repair costs. Good luck!

My magnatron in my micrewave has gone bad its still under warranty,they came out, want to charge me over a hundred dallares to replace the unit instead of repairing it help

When a magnetron goes bad, it has to be replaced. A magnetron cannot be repaired.

The parts and labor warranty for most brands is one year, and the magnetron warranty is usually about 5 years.

If it fails after the first year, you will have to pay for the labor for the home call and replacement of the magnetron, which often runs about $125-165, depending on your market.

They should not charge you the part cost of the magnetron.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Just so you know. Bosch has a 5 year warranty on any printed circuit board (excluding labor) so you pay only for labor charges. They have a 2 year warranty (again excluding labor) on the entire dishwasher. I am leaving a copy of my owners manuals warranty information I hope this helps.

Extended Limited Warranty: Bosch also provides these additional
limited warranties:
• 2 Year Limited Warranty: Bosch will repair or replace
any component that proves to be defective in materials or
workmanship (excludes labor charges).
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Electronics: Bosch will repair or
replace any Bosch microprocessor or printed circuit board if it
proves to be defective in materials or workmanship (excludes
labor charges).
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Dish Racks: Bosch will replace the
upper or lower dish rack (excluding rack components), if the rack
proves defective in materials or workmanship (excludes labor
• Lifetime Warranty against Stainless Steel Rust Through:
Bosch will replace your dishwasher with the same model or
a current model that is substantially equivalent or better in
functionality, if the inner liner should rust through (excludes
labor charges). Bosch will replace the stainless steel door if the
door should rust through (excludes labor charges).
The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of purchase, and
shall not be stalled, tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason
Repair/Replace as Your Exclusive Remedy: During this warranty
