Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We contracted with Clarke & **** Air Conditioning to install a Carrier air conditioning unit. This unit had a 10 year warranty and only 5 years have elapsed since the warranty was issued. We specifically chose this company because they advertise 24 hour service for their products and repair services. On July 4, 2013 the air conditioning failed, and they sent an air conditioning repair technician to repair the unit. We were told that, because it was a holiday, that the technician was not obligated to go to their office to retrieve a Carrier motor, and that if we wanted the motor repaired we would have to agree to use the "universal" motor the technician already had on his truck. We were also advised that not only would the universal motor not be covered by the warranty, but that our agreeing to the universal motor would mean that the entire unit was no longer under warranty. The technician also tried to convince us that warranties can be "suspended" in emergencies, meaning that Clarke & Rush was not responsible for honoring the warranty. There is no such warranty law in California. Since Clarke and Rush had already agreed to the service visit and had already informed us of the service fee, they knowingly accepted a service fee with the advance knowledge that without using Carrier parts, any service performed would require that the Carrier warranty could not be applied to that part. They therefore accepted a service fee with the intent to violate the warranty. In addition, since it was 110 degrees out, they also knew in advance that the repair would have to be made the same day, leaving us with no choice but to accept the "universal" part offered. This was not only deceptive in advertising 24 hour service (but refusing to provide it including the parts they advertise and represent) but also engaged in a service contract for repair with the advance intent to violate the warranty. We would appreciate your investigating this matter and making Clarke & Rush accountable for their warranties. Product_Or_Service: Carrier Air Conditioning Unit
Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund We would like Clarke & Rush to reinstate the unit warranty as well as refund the amount for the motor we were forced to purchase ($475). Since they knew Carrier parts would be required and accepted a service call knowing that they could not be provided, they intentionally acted outside the bounds of the warranty agreement. We feel this action on their part was not only extortive but constitutes deceptive business practice.
