I just bought a Frigidaire Air conditioner from PC Richards last week. I got at a very favorable price (display unit). The invoice clearly states the item is under warranty for one year parts and labor from the manufacturer. This weekend the A/C unit was making very loud noises so I turned it off and called Frigidaire, which is really Electrolux, on the warranty line. They advised me that although the item is under warranty for repairs they do not repair air conditioners 12000 BTU's or under. They said they can only refund me what I paid for the item. I stated that there is no language in the warranty that states such. They then informed me that it is an internal policy. I demanded it in writing. they could not do so. I informed them that I could not replace this item for the price I paid but they said they could not help me any further. I asked if they could just replace it, and they said no. I believe this is a breach of contract. I want to sue but I need to know who to sue in NY. Is it Electrolux who took over Frigidaire? At what address? etc.... I have attached a copy of the results of my lookup on NY State website for Electrolux, and selected one Electrolux warranty. Please explain
