Original Complaint against Appliance Repair Center's published at Scamity.com on 05-May-14 says, verbatim –
I called 591-9288 Appliance Repair Center in San Diego Escondido for my noisy refrigerator and water dispenser problem, a man came out here named Victor, Looks like there is only 1 person running this company ,I explained to him it would make noise every hour sounded like a train was coming and was loud, He took a look at it ,told me the freezer was uneven temps which I never knew cause the freezer worked just fine and everything was frozen in there ,he opened up the panel in back and right away said my circuit board was bad and he would need to replace it for $550.00,I told him that was way to much money for me I can’t afford that, then he said he could repair the circuit board for $300.00 and everything would be fine, | Well I had hope this could be done cause the noise it made keeps me up at night so I said ok fix it, I watched him take the board out he fiddled with it and the within 1/2 hr he told me he was done, Well I thought it was fixed cause the fridge didn’t make any noise at that point I checked the water dispenser and it did work so I thought this was the problem to the noise it made so I felt good about it, when it came time to pay he said he don’t take credit cards like it says on the website , he wanted cash, or check ,so I wrote him a check for $300. when he left, about 1/2 hour later the fridge made that terrible noise again and I said to myself I was just ripped off , | I contacted him right away on the phone and told him it’s still making noise and he asked me again what kind of noise and I said the noise I told you about when you started the project which was my concern with the unit when I called him, he told me to call him in a few days, I then started to investigate this, so I opened up the yellow pages which is where I found this person and find some kind of address and I found there is none ,no place, just a truck, so be careful when you deal with these rip-off people, there always on the move in there trucks so they can just post new ads and websites and keep themselves going to rip-off some more elderly people ,,,BEWARE OF Appliance Repair Center SanDiego California…Glad I stopped payment on my check… | UPDATE–My water dispenser stopped working again two hours later, this means he never did anything but take the perfectly working control board out and play with it then reinstalled it…You can’t rebuild a control board.
