I have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator Model 106.51143111. Changed the water fliter & water is coming out fine after some air in the line puffed out. However, the ice maker is no longer making ice. Icemaker is definitely turned on. Ideas?

Hi Sears Team,

Dont know why is so frequent issues are laid for every order. I ordered # 808182667 yesterday and have been waiting for store pick up email. I contacted Customer Service for price match in mean time and second response stated order is canceled. I do not see any status on site or email. Whats going wrong now?

I placed an order online for a mattress set using a $200 gift card that was given to me as a wedding present.  Not even 10 minutes after placing this order online I realized I ordered the wrong set. I immediately called  online support to explain the situation. The rep took it upon himself to cancel the whole transaction and informed me that they couldn't do anything else and I will be receiving my gift card refund in mail 7-10 business. I just wanted to change from one mattress to another! Very dissatisfied and disgusted with the lack of help received as well as rudeness. How is this fair?

During my last visit to a local Sears store I found some of the Craftsman fuel Madgolfer had mentioned in another discussion.  What I did not realize was the Craftsman fuel is available in several different types.  So far I have found Craftsman 40:1 2-Cycle Fuel Mix, Craftsman 50:1 2-Cycle Fuel Mix, and Craftsman High Performance Pure 4-Cycle Fuel.

Fuel

As I looked over the floor model leaf blower I wanted to buy I noticed the fuel cap had "40:1" written on it, and it had a 2-cycle engine.  I decided to listen to Madgolfer's tip and bought a 32 ounce can of the Craftsman 40:1 2-Cycle Fuel Mix.  It didn't have any ethanol in it either. 

Leaf Blower


When I read some of the product reviews some people had mentioned how their engine seized after a short period of time.  Another review mentioned something about them using 50:1 premix fuel even thought the blower required the 40:1 premix.  I don't think these people were given any warranty service because they improperly fueled their blowers.

Anyway, I bought my leaf blower and fuel.  When I got home I assembled the blower and filled it with some of the Craftsman fuel.  It took a few tries to get the engine pumping fuel but it started up.  After the engine ran the first time it started much easier the other times I used the blower.

I know I have only used the new blower and Craftsman fuel twice today but they seem to be working okay.  There should not be a worry about gasoline with ethanol causing any problems in the future.  The Craftsman fuel is kind of pricey at $6.49 for 32 ounces but it is really convenient when you need a leaf blower in a hurry.

I could not find pictures of the 40:1 and 50:1 fuel on Sears.com yet but I did find it in my local Sears store.  Only the picture of the 4 cycle fuel was available.  You have to make sure you know what type of engine you have (2-cycle or 4-cycle) and what fuel/oil ratio (40:1 or 50:1) your engine requires to properly operate it or you might damage your engine.

Have any of you other people used the Craftsman fuel yet?  Can you run the 4-cycle version of the fuel in a riding mower?  What do you think of the Craftsman fuel?

I have old photo's takean at Sears Portrait Studio.  I would like to print some of them.  What is the copywrite law for portraits taken at Sears Portrait Studio?  Can I take them to a photo printing store and get pictures printed of them? If I can't, can I get some prints from you? If I can, can I get it in writing so the photo printing store will print them for me? How old do the photo's need to be before the copyright law is no longer in effect? Thank you

We purchase from Sears anticipating the quality and service of an international company who has earned the stream of awards they display on their investor relations website.
 
We purchased Sears' top-of the-line dishwasher with the expectation of a useful lifespan that approximately meets the statistical average of 9-11 years .  The dishwasher is currently not functional with what two different technicians (one third party and one of Sears own) attribute to a manufacturing defect.  We were quoted a $400 repair bill from Sears to fix the damage this defect caused.  (This repair comes in addition to a previous service bill of $200 to replace some broken cheap plastic parts; apparently a common breakage).  These failures, repairs, and costs are vastly outside of any reasonable expectation of reliability or median repair cost (which as quoted by Consumer Reports in July 2014, is $153). 
 
The Sears Technician wasn't able to account for the manufacturing defect and directed us to call a particular number for assistance with the situation.  I spent well over an hour on the phone attempting to resolve this issue.  During that time, I had to call back 4 times, I was put on infinite hold a couple of times, I was rerouted to wrong extensions, and I was eventually promised a call back from a supervisor within 2 hours that never came.  Sears succeeded in the anti-service of frustrating the customer until I was forced to seek other channels of resolution.
 
So we're barely at 20% of the expected median lifespan, and yet have incurred 75% of the original cost in proposed repairs and previous service bills.  Worse still, these problems have been caused by defects in manufacturing.  This cannot be viewed as acceptable by any level of business standards.  We again ask Sears to do the right thing and take care of repairing or replacing this dishwasher.  Alternate next steps would include action through the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection and the Better Business Bureau.

Are you watching?  Have you filled out a bracket?  How is it looking?

I can't believe the upsets so far!  My bracket is a mess.  I do have Kentucky winning it all, but I have a lot of teams out of the running, already.

How do you check the oil in a Craftsman yard tractor with a Briggs Platinum engine?  My question might sound simple to answer but lets give it a try to figure out how much you really know.  After doing some reading in both the Craftsman owner's manual and the Briggs Operator's manual I decided to discuss things with other people.  Have you ever had this to happen? 

Some small engines require you to unscrew the oil dipstick, wipe it clean, screw it back in, unscrew it again, pull it out, and read the dipstick to determine the amount of oil that is in the engine.

Other small engines require you to unscrew the oil dipstick, wipe it clean, stick it back in without tightening it, pull it back out, and read the oil level on the dipstick.

My Craftsman T2000 yard tractor has the following instructions in the manual on how to check the oil.

Craftsman Check Oil INST

When I followed the instructions on how to check the oil level it showed the oil level was too high.  If I dip the dipstick in without tightening it it reads perfectly full.

The Briggs manual had the following instructions and they were the same as the Craftsman manual.
