AO.COM American fridge freezer

Recommended Posts

hi folks need some advice with problems i am having with samsung,
i have an american fridge freezer costing over £1600 that came with a 5 year manufacture warranty from date of purchase,
it is now just over a year and half old and broke down both fridge and freezer stopped cooling, all food wasted,
this was purchased through AO.COM
on the invoice it states it has a 5 year warranty,
also in the pack it came with a card for registering it for the inverter for 10 years and has sticker on the door saying this,
at the time i took ill and did not register it for the 10 years,
however i was under the impression the 5 year manufacturers warranty was in place,
on phoning samsung they inform me that the warranty does not apply,
even though they have the purchase date from AO.COM and the purchase is on their system,
it developed a fault when it was 4 months old and when i phoned samsung they had all the details,
but are now telling me its not covered by the 5 year warranty,
and that the manager will allow a one of repair but any other problems will have to be paid for,
i have looked up samsung T&C and this is what it says

forget warranties

not worth the paper they are written on


your recourse is against AO.COM under consumer rights act.
