"I had an ignitor go out on a Burner on a Gas range. I paid for the 5 Year warranty. When the service man arrived he switched ignitors from the back burner to the" front burner. In doing so he broke one of the ignitors and said he would return with in a week. So 3 weeks later we call service and are call is answered by
tells us it was abuse, DUE to pets or corrosion. They do not cover Pets on stoves or rust from corrosion. I do not have pets in the house.. Well I do have fish in an aquarium, but keep them off the
and in a aquarium. Then I ask if part of my warranty will be refunded as the does not cover anything it seems. I was advised I was out of luck.. But they will mail me a copy of my warranty. I have bought several washers, dryers and stoves from them before. But seems they only want to sell the warranty now and not repair the appliances. I will go to a big box mart in the future as I know what to expect from them in advance

"I have had this microwave wall oven unit for over three years and it has been nothing but trouble. It is a Whirlpool. Everything from broken latch to a burned-out" control board have gone wrong. Each and every time there is an issue with it you have to wait two weeks to have someone come look at it then it takes at least 3 to 4 weeks to ship whatever part and if you are lucky they get the right part. Usually it is the wrong part and you have to wait another 3 to 4 weeks. This is simply unacceptable and ridiculous to be without a vital kitchen appliance for a few months. Offer no apologies and have incompetent workers. I would never recommend them to anyone. The sales guys at the store do a great job selling but it is after you get it home that all the trouble begins. Do not buy from them!

Small Appliances and Kitchen Gadgets

Small appliances play a big role in our daily lives. When shopping for microwave ovens, vacuums, toasters, mixers and more, choose appliances that fit your need and budget. When it comes to repairs, compare the cost of fixing to the cost of replacing the item.

Personal opinion but I will not buy another front load washing machine again.  They simply do not clean clothes as well as the old agitator style washers do.  In the summer when I am hot and sweaty I have to wash shirts at least twice, sometimes up to four times to get the stink out.  Also, while they may save water per load washed, they run a lot longer.  My old washing machine took about 20 minutes to wash a load of clothes.  The front loader takes about an hour.  What it saves on water it more than makes up for in electricity I'm sure running three times as long.  Our front loader has not leaked but it doesn't do the job for my clothes.  Maybe someone sitting in an office all day has fewer problems having to rewash clothes.


As for appliance brand recommendations I have no particular favorites.  They all seem to be disposable these days, often costing as much to repair as to replace.  Samsung has made some good appliances as of late I've heard a lot of good reviews about from customers.  I've got a customer who bought a Kenmore refrigerator when they built the house.  The ice maker has gone out and the replacement part isn't any better since it's a known defect according to the appliance repairman they had look at it.  It was just past the warranty so they didn't pay for another part to be installed that was going to fail again.  Since Kenmore is made by other companies I'm sure they aren't the only one with this problem.  We live in a disposable society.  I look at how well it works, the warranty and cost and weigh the last two of those after kicking out the ones with bad reviews on that model.

Depends a lot on your current configuration. Rough numbers, $4-7,000 for the generator including autostart and automatic load transfer circuit box and master breakers (usually all come on the generator).

Installation (with pad already inplace and gas hookup - about $500-1000.

Electrical about $800 minimum, to maybe $2500. The $800 will get you a simple transfer switch installation but if you want some household circuits to run on the generator but others not, depending on how your current wiring is run, can run to $2000 to pull existing circuits to a new panel.

The problem is that all circuits that are going to be on the generator, unless you are planning to carry the entire household load, have to go to a separate circuit breaker panel which is fed off the automatic transfer switch, so they get power from either the power company or the generator, depending on which is providing power at the moment. That means the circuits running off either source have to be disconnected from your current breaker box, extended (commonly) over to the new box, and hooked up. All other circuits stay on your current breaker box, to run only off the public power when it is on. If the generator is large enough capactiy for your entire house load of course it costs more, but this circuit termination point moving is not needed, so electrical work drops way off to basically a connection box with the transfer switch.

A couple of words of advice - pay attention to weather protection, fire barrier between the unit and the house (including issues of overhead decks that can catch fire), automatic fire shutoff/suppression, and trickle charging from house power to generator battery. Also read CAREFULLY your power comopany rules on generator installation (commonly requires their signoff), any code restrictions on generators and noise in your area, and if your insurance rate will go up. (It definitely does if you have a fuel tank, I don't know if it does with natural gas-fired generators.)


Welcome to the world of Google ! Google this search phrase - dual fuel downdraft convection oven range

You will find a number of brands that make dual-fuel ranges with convection oven - Jenn-air of course, and GE, Bosch, Kitchenaid, Maytag, LG, Samsung, Wolf, Frigidaire, Thermador, Viking all sellin the US. Almost all major brands make this a dual-fuel convection oven range - find model(s) you like, then start checking with local vendors to see who sells them locally - the big home improvement box stores and Sears, Best Buy for starts.

However, the bad news - according to an article I found, only Jenn-Air still makes downdraft stovetops, although I did find one blog notation about a person buying a European Viking with downdraft. Basically the fan capability in downdraft ranges is just not enough to capture the odors and grease and steam coming off a cooktop, so the other brands all dripped it and recommend an over-stove powered vent hood. Most downdraft units had about a 1/10HP fan that pulled about 300 cfm - the same as a modern bathroom fan,, when to actually cause a reverse (downward) airflow over a range requires more like 1000 cfm or more causing a downward airflow of about 10-20 mph - which would make for a little private windstorm around your stove. People also found they did not like the reduced oven size to accomodate the fan unit.

Thermador and Dacor and probably others make behind the range vent units that stick up a foot or two and pull some of the fumes from the rangetop, though reviews say their performance is iffy and basically only affects the rear burners.

My recommendation - go with an overhead vent hood and eliminate the greasy buildup and high humidity in the kitchen that go with downdraft ranges - you will also pay about half a much as for a Jenn-Air downdraft unit.

The price was very fair. It's a very good company. We have used them for years. They're A in everything. When you call them, they respond quickly. A friend of mine called them on Thanksgiving because her oven broke. They went to their house on Thanksgiving Day and fixed her

came out on a Monday and diagnosed the problem. He is very knowledgeable, and shared his experience on the reliability of multiple lines of appliances. He is very professional and well spoken. He had to order the new circuit board from a warehouse in upstate New
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
, and this took 3 days to arrive at his business outside of Madsion Va. As soon as the part arrived, he was at out place the same day to install. Couldn't be happier with the overall level of service and punctuality. Only downside was the cost of the part ($199), but this is beyond the control of the repair man.

The installer provided by
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
was not on time, frequently missed appointments, and often left early. When I called
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
they would call the installer who would promise to complete the install. A little work would be done and I was back to contacting
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
. The work began in April 2015 and as of today 9 Sep 2015 has not been completed. Since I charge the work to my
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
card and they refuse to refund I am trying to work with them to complete this very slow installation; but my patient is running very thin.
I would have rated F but the work is not yet completed. What has been done by the first contractor lousy and by the other good. None of the work is excellent.
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
have offered discounts on items I ordered to complete the job because the first contractor made an incomplete estimate omitting a lot of things that were needed.
If work is not done soon I will have to get the BBB and Attorney General office on contractor disputes involved.
Just a bit of advice. Make sure you ask
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
who they are contracting the work out to and due your due diligence to see if the contractor has a good reputation before signing the contract. Remember at
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
you pay for the work upfront and they are extremely reluctant to refund at the Bartonsville/Stroudsburg site.
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
hired a company that subcontracts to individual contractors. This company frequently overbooks and thus contractors are not available to do the work when a problem such as mine arises. The first contractor sent out was sent to do 1100 square feet of tile in a weekend. Even I knew he could not do this and try to be accomendating in allowing two to four weeks but when he constantly miss appointments and showed up for only 3 to 4 hours work once I knew that this installation was going be a problem.

They came and measured the kitchen. Went to the shop and picked out cabinets, floor, sink, faucet, etc. We were presented with a price and contract. We went ahead. Workmen came in for the demo of the kitchen. All OK. The install began. Workmanship was sloppy. The workman was a subcontractor and his helper was a subcontractor of the workman. A soffit was torn out and all the insulation behind it. Cabinets were put up. We later discovered we had cold air blow out between cabinets in the winter. At least the glasses are prechilled. Then we find out that they won't do plaster work in a spot where the soffit was. We had to hire someone else. Also had to hire our own electrician to add some outlets I wanted. The sill plates at the doors are obnoxiously large and not cut to fit to the doorway. Then we find out that they "forgot" the baseboard molding and we had to pay another $400. Oh and we "forgot" the door handles and drawer pulls, another $500, and they are not even around they room. You can see some handles a little crooked, some a little higher than others. Very shoddy work. No up front notice that they won't do all the work? Added costs to a signed contract? I would not recommend these clowns to my worst enemy.

Delivery was scheduled for 9/11/2015. B&S call, appliance not available until 9/15/15. On 9/15/15 delivery truck arrives and the appliance (one of two) was not on the truck. Delivery rescheduled (third try) for 10/1/15. On 10/1/15 the delivery truck arrives and calls to make delivery. Purchaser was talking with a contractor in the back yard and the B&S delivery truck departs. Purchaser calls delivery dispatcher 6 minutes later and delivery truck refuses to return.

We originally called 5/2015 because of an issue we were having with our ice maker. The appointment was set up for a few days later with a 3 hour window. We were told the service tech would call us when he was leaving his previous appointment to give us a little time which we needed as we were in a meeting down the street and my wife was prepared to leave when necessary. The tech did not call us prior but called to tell us he was there and we were not so he was leaving. We had to call and reschedule for a few days later. The tech then came out and the ice maker decided to work for him as he tried it once and said it was fine. The next day it stopped dispensing ice out of the door again. He came back a few days later to find that it wasn't working then he literally opened the freezer door and said ok we will order a whole new door. It seemed very odd to me that you would come to that conclusion literally by opening a door and not even looking at the ice maker. He told us they would call when it arrived. 4 weeks past without hearing anything so we decided to call to check the status when they told us it can take up to 18 weeks to arrive! I spoke to
Taylorville Appliance Stores Provider Name Locked
directly and they said they would try to speed up the process and let me know when we can expect it, but they never called me back. It has been 18 weeks and the repair company has been extremely rude and now will not return our calls. So I may be forced to take legal action to have my fridge fixed. It's not just about your prices, but your staff and the subs you choose can make or break your business.

I called to schedule a repair. They couldn't come for 10 days. On day 9, they called and said that they had "training" and could not fix my dishwasher. They would come the next day. They never did. They never called. I finally called after waiting halt the day and was told, "Oh, he can't come. He should have called you. We can schedule you for the following Wednesday". I asked to speak to the manager, but she wasn't available (and never called back). I called the store and spoke with a salesman who some how was able to get a guy to come out to my house. When he arrived, he looked at it and determined it needed a new valve. He said he would order the part on Monday. I called on Wednesday (15 days after requesting service for the first time) and after about 10 minutes of questions and being on hold, was told that Oh, the part had just been ordered the day before (so a day after promised). When I questioned the business practice of sending a service provider without the tools to do his job I was told that "we are a repair company, not a parts company" and that they could not possibly schedule anyone to come out until the part had arrived, which usually takes 5-7 business days (or another 10 days without a dishwasher) and once it arrived they would call and only then would they schedule a service call (which I know from prior experience takes another 7-10 days). Add it all up and we will be without a dishwasher for somewhere between 24 and 30 days. The moral of the story: unless you can live without your appliance for a month, never purchase a warranty agreement from
