Trying to be pro-active, we logged onto this site and put in the model number of the refrigerator to see if there was a special light bulb that had to be purchased before we drove over to my Mother's to replace it. Our Kitchen Aid refrigerator takes seconds to replace with an appliance bulb purchased at a local hardware store. Her instructions say you must shut off the electricity, remove a plastic cover which was difficult to get off, then the bulb was an appliance bulb and not what was spelled out on the model instructions. We had ordered this special $5 plus $8 shipping fee which was ordered on the 14th of Nov and still hasn't arrived. After going to the hardware store and buying a $1.50 bulb we were done. We returned home and tried to cancel our order. Even talked to the manager only to be told that they could not cancel the order. I find that totally non customer friendly. Any retailer that we have ever dealt with has never been so inflexible. We were also told that we cannot return the part even though it will be unopened and unusable. To state on your instructions per the model number that you need this type of bulb when clearly it wasn't installed to begin with and then to refuse to cancel the order within 2 hours of placing the order and not even being shipped yet is ridiculous. Even the shipping email states: "Satisfaction Guaranteed
You may return an unused and uninstalled part in its original packaging. To return a part, you must first obtain a Return Authorization number by calling 800-366-PART or visiting our website at www.SearsPartsDirect.com. We must receive the returned part(s) with the Return Authorization number within 90 days of your original order date. Credit will be issued for the part(s) plus tax minus shipping charges. Your satisfaction is important to Sears." Every time we have had dealings with Sears for the last 26 years we have dealt with this type of crap. Whether it be employees who don't know the product or refusals to accept returns. Sears could learn something from Nordstroms. Personally, we will never buy anything from Sears again. We will also steer anyone we can away from making a purchase from Sears. I wouldn't buy from Sears even if it was the recommended buy from Consumer Reports simply because your customer service is the poorest we have ever dealt with and you never get any better. I honestly don't know how you stay in business. Even this email forces me to put in Splash Guard as the part used even though the part we ordered was a light bulb. I can't bring up that option. Figures!

The repair was extremely simple, it took less than a minute to complete. It was a perfect fit and it significantly reduced and dampened the noise once it was installed. The shipping was super fast as it arrived within 48 hours of my placing to order.

The rubber got old and weak. The splash guard kept falling into the disposer when you tryed to push food down.

Just like one of the other guys who had this problem, I had purchased a "universal" replacement from ACE that did not fit my appliance. When I got your replacement it took me just seconds to pop out the old one and push in the new one. It works perfectly! Thanks

We really didn't need to repair anything, we just needed to replace the splash guard. It came in two days and we are pleased with this website.

the splash guard for my sink drain (g.e. disposal) would not stay in place and would fall into the disposal. i had previously bought "universal" splash guards at 2 different home improvement stores--neither of which fit.

Simple -- Removed the old piece using fingers and inserted the replacement. The important thing is that the replacement part had to be the right one, because the "generic" splash guards available at Hme Deopt, Lowe's, etc. are too large in diameter and do not, despite what they will tell you in the stores, fit. They only fit the brands they sell in the stores. Even though GE disposals are quite common, they do not carry any replacement parts for this brand. DO NOT rely on the advice they will give you in the sotre.
