I paid Glacier over $400 to repair my daughters A.C unit. They replaced the parts with incorrect parts. Had to pay more money for correct fix.
Called Glacier on 4/3/14, tech came out. He said motor was bad, he replaced the motor on there with a smaller motor and also replaced the capacitor with a smaller one. A/C began tripping breaker, he came back told us the breaker was bad. Replaced breaker continued to trip. I called another tech, who came out replaced motor and capicitor with correct one now it runs fine. I attempted to speak with the owner several times so that we could work it out, he refused to call me back. After I paid another tech the Glacier tech called me and I explained to him that we had his parts, he could come get them but he said I paid for them so that was between myself and the owner. I can't get the owner to call me back. I do feel that I owe them for a thermostat but not the parts or labor. I have done business with Glacier before with no issues but this was bad business on ********** part from the beginning. I would like a refund of $365.00.

Desired Settlement
A refund of $365

***** *******
XXXXX Brazos Way
Lindale, Texas XXXXX

On 4-3-14 I received a call from ********* ******** She said her air conditioner was not working. I sent my tech out to her house. He found a bad motor and t-stat. He replaced the condenser fan motor with the same size motor that was already on there. The size was 1075 rpm. The next day, ********* called back and said it was tripping the breaker. She said her dad had put the last motor on last year, but they did not get along so she did not want to call him. I sent ***** back out to her house and he called the manufacture and they told him it was the wrong motor and it should be an 825 rpm motor. ***** told the customer he would have to go get the correct motor. Merrandie's mom ***** ******* had used her credit card the day before to pay for the work done. She then called me and was upset about the motor. I told her ***** was going to come back to put the right motor on but she said she would find someone else. ***** also called and talked to *****. We have not been back to the house, because ***** told me she did not want us to come back, and they have the motor, capacitor, and new t-stat. They have never returned any of it and have not even offered to return it. *****'s BBB report stated that she offered to have my tech come back out to get the parts, but this is the first time I have heard that and my tech said he was never told that either. We provided service and parts to the customer and feel like there should be no reason for a refund. ***** also stated that she tried to speak with the owner several times but he refused to call her back. I told ***** that ****** (our owner) was out of town. I spoke to her a few times and ***** spoke with her a few times also. ***** had contacted her credit card company and requested a chargeback. The company refunded her the payment. After I submitted our response, the credit card company returned the full payment back to us. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at Glacier Cooling & Heating our number is XXX-XXX-XXXX.

Thank you,
******* *********

Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
They are attempting to make it out like this all happened in two days. This was over a two week period. ****** had plenty of time to get back to town and give me a call. Even now he is having his office person respond instead of himself. You will never convince me that ***** called the manufactor because he told my daughter and son in law that the unit was so old he didn't find numbers on it. Most units that size would take the 825 rpm motor. Howevcr with the pitch of those blades on the fan it will only work with a 1075rpm motor. We did contact the manufactor and that was the information we received. The motor that was on it was a 1075 rpm motor which I still have the receipt for it also from a year ago that her dad put on.I have offered for them to come and the parts because I can't use them they are the wrong ones. ***** repeatly changed his story to my daughter and sonin law. He doesn't have the experience as ****** which is why I waited several days before buying more parts. We doubled checked our information with not only coburn's but also the manufactor and then finally just ran to Mathews and picked up the correct parts. My credit card company refunded the money to you because this is now a civil matter. I honestly feel at this time that I will file a small claims case. I have my daughter, myself, my son in law which all heard *****'s statements. Then my x husband who repaired it after ***** left it broken. When I spoke to ***** he was shocked that ****** had not called me back. He said well now I understand why you are upset. He even knew it had been several days. ******* knew per our conversation that I wanted to speak to ******. I told her he had always done good work for me in the past and I just really wanted to work this out. I still waited a couple more days before calling my x husband. ****** could have made a phone call from out of town. I would appreciate a resolution that both parties could live with.

(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
I do not accept this offer... AND FOR THE 10th time you can have your parts. I can't use them because they are the wrong ones. I will only I shouldn't have to pay for a second motor and capacitor. He took off a 1075 and replaced with smaller motor... How is that putting on the correct motor from the beginning. I will settle for $350 today and you can have all your parts. I will give you the thermostate back.
