Feature and Product Videos

Professional delivery and installation is available for most products we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Terribly disapointed.

gjmh 7/24/2011

We purchased this refrigerator 1.5 years ago. Weve had a repair person here at least twice and have given up as neither visit fixed the problem. The ice dispenser has leaked on and off the entire time weve owned the fridge. Its almost as though the ice cubes dont freeze completely so the water leaks out of the dispenser. The leaking is not constant but often. However I cant figure out when/why it leaks. Very frustrated as we spent a lot of money on this fridge and it is no longer under warranty but the problem was never resolved.

just arrived

Our new electrolux arrived. It is beautiful but we do have a few reservations about recommending. The shelves waste about an inch in the back with the frame of the shelf if the frame was level the space would still be usable. we also have black which is beautiful but received no instructions on how to keep it shiny and clean. our sales person did not have any suggestions for us. I would love to have help. Thanks.
