Installation & repair

Once your parts have arrived, contact us at Sears Home Services (1-800-424-2047), so we can let a technician know your parts have arrived and the service can be completed. During the initial service call, you were charged once for parts and labor. You will not be charged for service again.
- What if I you repair my appliance and the same problem occurs? Will you charge me to come out a second time?
If the technician has to return for the same symptom/problem, there will be no additional charge for labor. This is considered a recall; because our technician did not diagnose the root of the problem or did not complete the repair properly, we will not charge you any extra labor.

On most items there is up to a one-year warranty on parts and service.

Most appliances have a 1 year warranty where parts and service are covered (refer to your owner?s manual for coverage details).
