We purchased a top of the line Frigidaire Gallery French Door refrigerator with dual ice maker for $2,398 in June 2016. Less than 5 months after it was delivered and installed by Lowe's the upper ice maker malfunctioned.
We also purchased a 5-year extended warranty for this major appliance adding to the cost. We called Lowe's when the ice maker stopped working and they sent out a licensed repair company who services Frigidaire appliances. After 8 service calls with different repair companies and numerous parts being replaced (the last part replaced just a week ago) we are calling again that the upper ice maker does not work. Lowe's has refused to acknowledge the fact that they sold, delivered and installed a defective refrigerator.
Frigidaire told us that we should have called them FIRST during the initial one year warranty period. Lowe's does not instruct the consumer to call the manufacturer FIRST. Instead, you are told to contact their Extended Warranty Service Department with people who take your call and don't know anything about the product or manufacture you are calling on. We are now stuck with a lemon that Lowe's refuses to replace after 18 months of taking time off from work, phones calls, scheduling repairs, a multitude of replacement parts that haven't solved the problem.
We purchased 6 major appliances with Lowe's in a 12 month period, all with 5 year extended warranties. We can only imagine what horrors we will be subjected to if any other appliances have problems in the next 3.5 years. Caveat Emptor.
Buyers, go somewhere else to buy major appliances. Shame on Lowe's.
