Kitchenaid - Reprehensible customer service Benton Harbor, Michigan
*UPDATE Employee: KitchenAid Cares
I called the Kitchenaid customer service department again, and they said my only option was to get a second opinion which, of course, I had to pay for. They sent A&E Factory Service to my house ($128 for a service call) and the technician ordered a part, came out two weeks later to install it, and that part did not fix the problem. After six visits (each of which I had to take off work and wait at my home for the repairman), the technician finally deemed my microwave "unrepairable." He put that in writing and instructed me to contact Kitchenaid for a replacement unit.
One month, twenty phone calls, numerous promises of call-backs, and several supervisors later, Kitchenaid offered to replace my microwave (they called it a "pro-rated exchange") for $990. I explained that I had already spent $400 to repair the $1100 unit that I had, and that an additional $990 hardly seemed fair to replace a high-end unit that did not work. They agreed to drop the "pro-rated
exchange" price to $468. I told them that us unacceptable and they said, "We're sorry, that's all we are
prepared to do."
This is a very attractive unit and I thought I was getting the best when I bought Kitchenaid, but after this five month-long process of trying to get my problem solved, I could not be more dissatisfied with the Kitchenaid customer service department.
