I have a panasonic combi microwave, having has 3 previous combis of thiers I had no problems with buying another one. It developed a fault and had to be collected by their agent, when it returned the fault was still there. It has now developed another fault. It keeps asking for the door to be closed, when it is closed and then switches itself off or refuses to start.
I consider this is not fit for purpose and have asked Panasonic to replace it. They have refused to do so. I have no confidence in the repairers, but Panasonic refuse to send it anywhere else. It is still under guarantee so the work is being undertaken under that.....to say I am not happy is putting it mildly.
I do wish that they would staff customer service with people who speak good English. It is very difficult to understand someone whose first language is not English and has a strong accent.
I have always recommended Panasonic if any one has asked for reccys......both Microwaves and also bread makers. I am very disappointed.
The original warranty runs out on Monday, so to cover my back I have extended it for another 4 years. This is the first time I have felt the need to extend the manufacturers warranty.
We have a wet day, it started to rain after breakfast, so no gardening today. I did manage to pick some rhubarb, 12 sticks 6 are in the freezer and 6 to go to our friends this afternoon. We gave them a root last year, but it will not be fully productive until next year.
DB is fretting about not being able to go outside, tough........ I need to put a note through the door to our gardener and see if she can spare me an hour to finish weeding the herbaceous bed, I just cannot manage it, 15 minutes and my back is telling me to sit down. Once its done I plan to cover the whole thing with a layer of compost........need a bulk delivery.............
