General Electric - GE wont take responsibility for Microwave Fire Hazzard Fairfield Connecticut
*Consumer Comment: I Will Not Buy General Electric = Fire Hazard
I contacted GE again and they said that the first service call available would be January 16, 2009. I spoke to a GE spokesman again on the 15th who confirmed the appointment. The repairman called on the way over to state that the call was not a warranty repair (first I heard of this) and the charge would be $185.00. I informed him that no one had told me that and I would not pay it.
He came anyway, looked at the microwave and contacted someone from customer "relations" who got me on the phone and offered me a $50.00 good will coupon. She then instructed the repairman to charge me 85.00 for the service call. I told them both I would not pay. He left without repairing the microwave. I have looked at the internet and found that their microwaves have this same problem frequently. Check out consumeraffairs.com to see more.
This should be a factory recall issue instead of a "try to make the customer pay for our bad design issue."
