2 Answers

Beware of what you buy?

Watch what you are sold at Best Buy! I bought what I thought was a 2006 Frigidaire side by side frig. This year in March the compressor goes out and just my luck the warrranty ran out in Jan., so I call the repair man, and listen to this,IT'S A GOOD THING I HAVE THE 2004 MODEL, BECAUSE FRIGIDAIRE KNOWS THE COMPRESSORS ARE BAD IN THEM AND IT'S ONLY GOIN' COST YA' $$$. BEST BUY KNEW THIS WHEN THEY SOLD ME THE 2004 MODEL IN 2006, SHAME ON THEM! AND THEIR INSURANCE/WARRANTY! I HOPE THE PRESIDENT ON BEST BUY READS THIS BLOG!

SO BEWARE WHEN BUYING HIGH END OR ANYTHING AT BEST NOT BUY!

Your product would have the five year warranty for the sealed system, check your owners manual, if it says 5 years then they have to honor the five years. You may need to photo copy and fax it to them. It would be cheaper than a compressor.

I hear the frustraiton in your blog hear,but honestly its misplaced anger, fortunate for you you werersold a left over and had coverage, ALL manufactures as of jan 06 now only carry 1yr warr's on all repairs, not just frigidaire, so yes BUYER BEWARE, but not just of frigidaire or bestbuy,, all appiances and all dealers are now in this together!!!!!!!! cust really needs to do homework and look into exactly whats being sold.. by the way components havent changed only the length of the warr

My Maytag side by side refrigerator [mod. #MSD2656KES, Serial #50518503JL] is freezing everything on the frig side on the two top shelves. Coils have been cleaned. Temp set:Freez=3, Frig=2. One week ago...


I have this same refrigerator, also purchased in 2006. Same exact problem. Fridge freezes, starting actually in the water line, you will notice water on door does not work, then top two shelves start to freeze. Lasts for a few days, then prob does not happen again for 6 months almost to the day. I've had this problem for almost 3 years!!! My service tech said to buy another, glitch in this system he can't figure out. Replaced damper x2, control board, and thermostat x2. Not sure what else to do. I hate the thought of more food lost to spoilage!

Compressor went down


The sealed system of any fridge or freezer is normally covered by a 5 year factory warranty. This compressor will be covered, but maybe you need to demand service from the place you bought it from and contact the manufacturer directly and demand they fix it. If they won't fix it free consider legal action.

Cheers

New Microwavbe that will not work.


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

I bought a computer from best buy


Was it an introductory or trial software?

If it wasn't I would definitely make a fuss with Best Buy, I don't see why they wouldn't just pull a new software off the shelf and give it to you especially if you bought a complete system from them. I would do a screen print showing that the software is not working. First, make sure you haven't disabled it, and it is truly not functioning, BUT let them resolve it their own way first.

Frigidaire the refridgerator is not cold enough. It stays at 60 degrees, I don't know the model because it was torn off inside the fridge and the owner's manual did not come with the house when we bought...


Have one similar and found out the compressor goes out on them about a year and half after purchase. You can buy another compressor but the likely hood of it going out again is likely. Sorry but we bought bad fridges. Never again will I buy a Fridgidaire.

Frig and Freezer not working.


Beware I bought a Frigidaire side by side in 2006 and the compressor went out in March 2008, the warranty was out in Jan, and the repair man came out and said it was a 2004 model, you might have the same one as I had, they know the compressors are bad in the frig's and you only pay,$160.something if I remember. It sounds just like the problem I had, good luck!
