It took over a week to get someone to come out the first time just to order the wrong part. The new technician also told me he called and they had the correct part in stock and it would be in his hands on Friday (this was last Wednesday that he was at my house). Of course, I never heard back. I never do. I have been calling the number they give on the receipt just to talk with a person in another country who doesnt care and who says they'll call me back but they dont. So Friday night after I havent heard back from anyone, I called getting transferred over and over to other departments just to end up at the same one I originally started with. They said that the part was on back order now and it would be 7 to 10 days before it comes in and that they would call me on Saturday to talk about it and if they didnt (because we told them they never call back) to call the corporate office about it.
They didnt call back again! So that brings me to today. I called them again and got the usual run around and they told me again, 7 to 10 days. I asked them what happened with the technician saying last week that they had it in stock in California?? They couldnt answer that one. They just said that they are going to call me back again when the part comes in(ha, I wont hold my breath). So now it is going to be over 6 weeks of this tv being broke with me waiting for a part again. Will it be the correct one? Who knows. And I will wait longer than 6 weeks because I'll have to wait to schedule the appointment with the tech that usually takes another week. This will be 3 days (probably more) with missing work waiting on this tv with this "insurance" that I purchased.
I even went up to the store where I originally bought it and spoke with the manager. He pulled my ticket number and said he saw the list of problems that we are having but he couldnt do anything about it because after 30 days of purchase, it is out of his hands. He wanted us to call him and let him know what happens though. How thoughtful. He actually was nice and said that it happens all the time. So if you buy this extended insurance, you know what you get to look forward to! People who give you the run around constantly, never call back when they say they will, and weeks and weeks of your product not working.
