Useless Warranty for fuel related problems

Used it for one year no problems last year. Only used it three to four times as we did not get much snow. At the end of the year I did as the manual states run the snow blower out of gas and remove the nut to drain any remaining gas. I put fresh gas in and now it wont start. I called sears for service and was told this would not be covered as it is a fuel related problem. So I need to pay to get it repaired after using it one year. Not very happy with their warranty.

Great snow thrower

|

I brought a Snow Joe hybrid and it was the worst. It could not handle 8" of snow. I had to upgrade to the Craftsman snow thrower and it worked wonderful.

Terrific deal on a great machine

|

I checked the consumer reports on this snowthrower and back in 2017 it was a ******** and a recommended buy. More recent reviews noted that even if it was an older model, it had demonstrated it value over time. And then I found it on sale at Sears! What a deal! Easy to order online, easy to pickup from my local store, already assembled. The salesperson helped us load it onto the back of our vehicle. And it works great!

Be careful

|

Purchased this when my other one went down. It already has lost paint under the impeller, and everytime you engage the auger it makes a noise. Also, make sure they give you the points they promise. It was advertised with 350 in rewards points and they took 100 away. I am done with sears and will never purchase their items again. Not to mention they are not a honest business. Good luck at getting the advertised $500 in SYR points when buying this pos.
