The ice machine repair guy is supposed to be here in another half hour or so. I called yesterday and said that I'd been sufficiently patient letting them get to people whose refrigerator was actually out but it was my turn now. They called back to say they will have someone here this morning. He won't have whatever part is needed so he'll have to come back.
Same as the dryer guy who said I needed a whole new motor (in a two year old Samsung). Doesn't matter to me what it needs. Costs me $75 even if they have to replace the whole thing (which they are obligated to do if they can't fix it). So he's supposed to call me with the parts arrival report. Same will happen with the ice maker. I think the warranty company sources the actual parts and provides them which saves them money but is paid for by the repair people in repeat visits. One of the many reasons I never accepted work from a warranty company for the computer shop I ran. Not worth it.
Fortunately Dana and I both ran a full load and had all clean clothes the day before the dryer broke. I really hate laundromats especially now. Expensive and there are people. I figure we've got a week before things get dicey.( Collapse )
