I needed to replace a gas downdraft cooktop.
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
recommended really the only option (Jenn-Air) and got me all the paperwork and installation specs I needed, and quoted me a few different options if I wanted to go with a telescoping downdraft or install an overhead draft.
Their price was the same one quoted by B&B, but they had the unit installed in the showroom so it was much nicer to be able to see and touch what I was buying.

recommends

's Installations for installs. They came out and checked the installation site for free before I purchased the unit, so I had no worries about fit or other problems. (

's also gave me great information on site that helped me make my choice--

's and

work well together). Jenn-Air also offers an extra year of warranty if you use a certified installer.
There was a small glitch with a rebate. When I was purchasing the unit over the phone,
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
mentioned that Jenn-Air had a $100 rebate starting in a few days that I qualified for. I didn't see the rebate online so that was a nice surprise. It turned out that she had read the promotion wrong (the $100 was for a cooktop and another appliance purchased together). She offered to refund me $50 directly from
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
, which seemed like a fair compromise. The rebate was not part of my purchase decision and wasn't mentioned until we were already finalizing the transaction, so I really think this was an honest mistake.

Our tenants called about the gas oven suddenly not working; this company responded very quickly to our call for assistance in resolving the problem. Based on our description of the appliance and symptoms, they were able to determine that the igniter was not functioning. Within just a couple of days, they were able to obtain the required part and get over to the house to complete the repair. Our tenants were happy--We were happy.

In my opinion,
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
, VP of
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
, used deceptive business practices in that he failed to offer extended warranties on my appliances at the time of purchase and he avoided my calls and emails when I tried to purchase warranties. He told me via email that I had up to one year to purchase warranties. After I told him I actually wanted to purchase warranties, months went by with him avoiding my calls and emails. I wrote a complaint to Thermador for their assistance, and he changed his story when they contacted him by saying extended warranties must be purchased within 6 months of the date of purchase. I paid for the appliances in Feb of 2013 because naturally they must be purchased in advance of moving into a newly constructed house. Appliance repair is very expensive and I have been left holding the bag with no recourse. I recommend that anyone interested in purchasing extended warranties purchase them in conjunction with the appliances or he will refuse to sell them to you.

After purchasing a
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
here It was agreed that it would be delivered on Thurs. the 11th. I had to call them on Wednesday to be sure the
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
came in & we were still on track. Owner ( I guess) tiold me I would be their 1st stop on Thurs. I told him I had to leave my home at 10 to get to work. He told me fine. At 9:15 I hadn't heard from anyone so I called the office. I was told that the delivery men hadn't left the office but would be leaving in 30 mins or so. I said fine. At 10:00 they showed up. I answered the door & said hi. A man just walked past me into the house & didn't say a word. I was shocked. He walked into the foyer turned around looked at me & said "
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
". That's all. I said yes & showed him to the kitchen. They went on about their business, put the
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
in & left. I went to work. When I came home later that day I noticed two grease stains on my carpet, which by the way, had been cleaned the week before. I called the business, spoke to a
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
. She laughed. First telling me that the delivery guy.....oh that's just him. Then, through the

, she said im sorry. I told her I didnt think she was. I hung up, furious. Horrible people. Unbelievable.

Overall, a very good experience. The salespeople were knowledgeable, friendly and responsive. Pricing was fair. Delivery time was delayed a couple of days, but the installation team did an excellent and efficient job. One area for improvement: although knowledgeable about the products themselves, the salesperson did not ask us enough questions at the time of purchase to make sure we had the product we needed. Consequently, we lost some time in getting what we needed. However, we're happy with the results.

Our refrigerator stopped cooling and we found
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
. They sent their tech,
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
, over very quickly and he diagnosed the problem immediately. He had to order the part but he showed us a quick temporary fix to keep us from losing our food until he could come back with the part. He came back the next day and it has been running perfectly ever since. Then the oven in our gas
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
decided to not heat up any longer so we called again and they sent the same great tech,
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
, and he again easily diagnosed the problem and he quickly ordered a new part and installed it. My oven is working again just like new! It is very hard nowadays to find a company who does what they say and not just put out a bunch of nice sounding words of advertising.
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
is great! It is like having a friend to call when you need help around the house. AND their rates are fair and reasonable!

Stay away!
I was looking for a rangetop and had two top contenders price-wise for my purchase.
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
and another online retailer.
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
had the better price, so I went with them.
This company sold me the rangetop online (took my credit card information and sent me a confirmation email).
I called the next day to find out about shipping details only to find out that they refuse to ship the product to me.
(their excuse--I'm out of state--as if mail doesn't go out of state??).
Now they have my credit card information and personal information.
When I told the manager about this, he was quite belligerent about it, saying "That's just the way it is" and saying "sorry" with that "What are you going to do about it"
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
.
Because of them, my credit security is at risk and I am losing money, as I had two different stores I was comparing and the other was a few hundred bucks more...I chose this one for the price but now the other is out of stock. Now I must pay EVEN more to get it. I'm very unhappy!
I suppose if you can go in and make your purchase, you might be okay--but God forbid you have a problem and have to deal with that attitude.
I rarely write bad reviews--but this was warranted.

My 19 year old Amana washer and dryer were dying a slow death so I finally decided to replace them. I combed the internet comparing brands and models and read numerous reviews. I finally decided to buy GE. A friend of mine has replaced all of her appliances through
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
, so I called the
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
office.
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
was extremely courteous and quoted me an excellent price on the machines I wanted. I gave him my credit card info over the phone and the deal was done. On 9/3/2014, two deliverymen arrived. They were prompt, appropriately dressed, and ready to work. It was not easy to get the old washer and dryer up out of the basement and the new machines in place. They didn't complain and set to work. They hooked up the gas dryer, put new hoses on the washer and then tested both machines to ensure they worked properly with no leaks. All my other appliances are 19 years old and, I am sure, will have to be replaced soon. I will definitely use
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
again and would recommend them to anyone.

Very well. Professional service and excellent design advice and guidance. Installers were competent and timely. Overall design, cabinets and counter top were via

. We had our own contractor,

Construction of Mentor,for demolition of old kitchen and the electrical, plumbing and drywall work. Whole job from start of demolition to cooking our first meal in the new kitchen took 5.5 weeks.

Weeks of calling unresponsive customer service representatives almost ran out the clock with our warranty! We were finally told that the dishwasher would be replaced, but in order for it to be delivered we had to finally go to the Stony
Portland Discount Appliances Provider Name Locked
Store. The customer service representatives were unhelpful, and the store manager was disrespectful and actually became disagreeable to the point of our having to walk out of the store.
My advice: Use Home Depot! Their service is much better, and the employees are more professional!
Since that time, we tried contacting the home office of Lowe's, but to no avail. We were not able to get any satisfaction, as far as an apology for the rude treatment from store employees.
We are very disappointed!
