An electric service call was placed for an attic and both fan. Both making bad sounds. The attic fan located above a bedroom and the day it started to make noise the temperature in that room rose 10 degrees. The electrician claims it is only noise, however, put on the receipt that they would replace the motor for $280.00. If it is only noise why would they need to replace the motor? The same was written on receipt for the bath fan.
Also today I am expecting a service call from a plumber for service on a garbage disposal for the third time for the same issue. Each time I am required to pay a service fee. Amazingly the disposal seizes up always well past the time for the company to come back and repair it without my being charged again. This time I did the loosening with the allen wrench plus pushed the red button EVERY day since placing this call and it didn't turn on. They arrive sticks his hand up under the disposal and wham it starts! So three at $60.00 is $180.00 which I would have to believe is more than a replacement garbage disposal. I feel like I am throwing money away.
And two weeks ago I had a service man out for repair on a microwave. The service tech advised that the parts were going to be approximately $150.00 or more. This is the second time I had service for the microwave. So two at $60.00 is $120.00 plus parts, plus the cost of service calls from Sears and then the cost of service techs for initial call and repair visit,
I am again left thinking what is this company doing? They are approving the parts cost, plus the tech time, and I paid $120.00 for the service fee, that has to add up to more than the replacement cost of a 25 year old microwave.
