Complaint: Took Troy-Bilt lawn edger to be repaired because blade would not turn on 5/20/13. After several weeks I contacted them to see how the repair was going. Finally picked up edger and paid $141.45 for the "repair". They replaced the pulley and the belt. Took it home and the machine did not complete a one time job on the sidewalk before the "trigger" on the handle would not work. I thought this was a seperate problem and I would just throw the machine out instead of putting more money into it. Then I decided after a week or so to try to fix the handle myself. After I looked a the handle, I could not find anything wrong. I took the "plate" off near the blade and the "new" belt came off. I took it back and it was quickly "repaired". I wanted them to start it up before I took it home. The person started it an in a couple of minutes, the blade stopped again because the belt came off again. I left it there and heard nothing from them. I stopped in and he told me that they looked at it and there was damage to a part of the moter and it would cost another $140 or so to fix. He explained to me that they "fixed" the most common reason for this problem, and the part on the motor that was broken is rare. I would never had agreed to the repair in the first place on a machine that was a total loss. I feel the they did not diagnose the entire problem with the unit to start with. When I picked up the machine, I told the employee that I felt like I should be compensated for some of the money wasted. He said there was nothing to compensate.
Desired Settlement: I would like at least $93.75 for the labor for this rip off "repair"
