Reliability Measurements

Every day, we have 30 service techs performing 8-10 service calls with another 110 or so on Saturday. We then look at sales in that period and divide by the number serviced.

In 2017, we logged 30,761 service calls. 

We do not scrub the data. Every time you have a technician visit, it will count as a service call. We do not include damage and phone resolutions as service calls. 

I only cover the first year because warranty service is free during that period, so there is a greater and more accurate pool of data. 

So, let's take a look.

What is the Most Reliable Range?

Answering this question will require an explanation. 

Before you buy a Whirlpool, Maytag, Frigidaire, or Amana range, it's important to know most of these units were sold on jobs to builders. We said that last year and the numbers were equally low. 

Whirlpool's upscale brands, KitchenAid and Jenn-Air, fared differently even though they are essentially the same range. 

Simpler ranges with fewer features are more reliable. Bosch is average at 15.97%, but their best Benchmark Series is 33.33%.

Samsung looks good. Their products do work and are generally reliableThat low figure of 5.69% represents mostly high-end products with features

Samsung Appliances

In certain parts of the country, it is hard to find a technician to fix Samsung (or LG and any other high-end brand). 

 

Which One Should You Buy?

Everyone thinks I am a high-end guy, but anything that doesn’t break becomes my favorite line. Samsung is worth a look as is KitchenAid. Bosch will figure it out. 

Now all you have to do is find someone credible to actually send a technician to make repairs, which is almost a certainty in a new kitchen within the first year.
