SEARS Defective Kenmore Slide in oven, refuses to honor agreement Tacoma Washington

Purchased Bisque Kenmore Slide in Oven less than one year ago.  Pd to have it delivered. Delivery truck drove up onto my patio and crackeded it, then unloaded and installed product. Very first time using, and every time after, the stove top will not wipe clean. It will not clean with the product they sold me, nor will it clean with dish soap. in fact if i rubbed on the stovetop , the finish would come off. 

Repair came out and ordered and replaced stove top, it occured again. Then the knobs started changing color. The entire stove is un-cleanable. Repair man has been out 4 times. Apparently there is a big discrepency on how they handle this, depending on who I talk to. 

Called customer service, they told me I should buy an additional warrnaty, and against my better judgement, I did. I called the escalation department, they told me I needed to have a repairman out 4 times, and then I could order and pay more for a better sotve/oven. So I pd more money, got the warranty, talked to Sears again, now they say every outlet can make their own rules, and the extra warranty agreeement was for no reason. I called the outlet company, they say it is up to the warranty department or Escalation department. One of the times I spoke to escalation, they put me on hold and called Sears Outlet for me, got back ont eh phone an dinformed me that after this visit I could return the stove and buy a better one. 

Now I am sitting and waiting, no one wants to replace or allow me to pay more to upgrade. I purchased the extra warranty for no reason.
