Protection Plans & Warranty
How is a warranty from Consumer Protection Services (CPS) different from the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time. Lengths of coverage may vary for parts and labor respectively. For example, a common manufacturer's warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. CPS plans provide comprehensive, long term, coverage on both parts and labor concurrently. This means that should your product fail within your plan's coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.
How do I buy a CPS plan?
CPS plans can be purchased in the course of purchasing your product online. You can also order a CPS plan by calling our toll-free number within certain amount of time after purchasing the applicable product
What's Included in a CPS plan?
CPS covers the same malfunctions as your original manufacturer's warranty in addition to value added features. Coverage includes but is not limited to:
- Defects in materials and workmanship
- Protection from dust, heat, and internal humidity damage
- Damage caused by power surges
What products are covered in a CPS plan?
CPS plan coverage is offered for large kitchen and laundry appliances along with various and sundry household appliances including, but not limited to, ice makers, trash compactors, air conditioners, portable heaters, humidifiers, and grills.
When does my CPS coverage start?
A standard CPS warranty takes effect when the manufacturer's warranty ends.
How do I file a CPS claim?
I filed a CPS claim. Now what?
Once alerted to your claim, CPS will contact a local authorized service technician and inform them of the situation. The service technician will contact you to schedule a time to inspect your product. Once they have assessed any defect, the service technician will repair your product. Be advised, a follow-up visit may be required if the service technician does not have any necessary parts on hand or if additional unexpected defects are discovered.
How do I know CPS authorized service technicians are qualified?
CPS maintains a nationwide network of expert service technicians. Authorized technicians are extensively trained by respective manufacturers before being sent into the field. They are versed in every aspect of the brands' products. Because the appliance industry is ever changing, technicians undergo ongoing training in order to familiarize themselves with new models and features. In order to maintain their authorized status, each technician must pass bi-annual exams to verify product knowledge. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences so that we may continually improve our services.
Will my CPS coverage continue after my appliance is repaired?
Yes. Your coverage will typically continue until the originally agreed upon contract expires. Your coverage will end, however, if your appliance is replaced or the total cost of the repairs meets the maximum liability (the original price you paid for your appliance).
What happens if the service center can't fix it?
If a service technician is unable to repair your product, we will assess the current market value of the product and reimburse you that amount.
Can I use the standard plan for a commercially used appliance?
No. If you purchase a commercially-rated product, you will need to purchase a commercial CPS plan.
Can I renew my CPS plan?
Service plans are renewable if certain conditions are met. Renewal applications must be submitted 30 calendar days prior to the original plan's expiration date. Please contact a Customer Representative at 800-905-0443 to discuss your renewal options.
Your Account & Orders
How can I modify my order?
You may modify your order as long as it has not reach the shipping process. Options may or may not include: Splitting an order for partial shipment, removing an item from an order or cancelling an order all together. The options can be found when you view an order from your account. You may not see any of these options listed depending if your order already has a shipping status.
How do I cancel my order?
Most items enter the shipping process 30 minutes after you place your order. You may cancel entire orders within these first 30 minutes. You must call to request a cancellation any time before your item ships and we will make every effort to honor your cancellation request. All cancellations must be made verbal with one of our customer service representatives. If your order has already entered the shipment process, however, we might not be able to cancel it and it might ship despite your request. If this happens, simply refuse the order or contact us for a RMA. Cancellations are honored via phone only with a live representative; e-mail cancellation requests are considered invalid as we cannot guarantee it will reach us and/or get read before your item leaves our location. If you have already signed your Credit Card Authorization, meaning the items have been routed to the shipping department and/or our drop-ship vendor, or for orders that have been partially billed, there will be a cancellation fee of 15% to cover fees for processing and those fees associated with the credit card companies and/or vendors.
How do I track my order?
If you would like to track your order or an item from your order, please log in with your email address and password. You may track any item that has entered the shipping process and has been shipped out.
I did not receive email confirmation?
If you did not receive a confirmation on the order, and however, successfully clicked the last submit button, most likely our server received your order but communication back to your PC was interrupted. Please do NOT replace the order online. If you do, you may end up with duplicate orders and both being charged since we use an automatic computer system. Call our customer service at 800-299-9470 to make sure your order was received to be safe. If you did not receive an email from us after you placed and order, it's possible our email replies are being blocked by your browser settings or by your internet service provider. This sometimes happens to commercial email even when it's legitimate, like email from our customer support department or automatic order status notification emails. If you think this is happening to you, consult the help section of your email program and see how to relax or open up the settings that filter or block email that you receive. Or contact your internet service provider for advice on loosening your email filter settings. Once you've done that, email us again and we'll gladly answer your question again. If you still don't receive a reply, email us again and ask us to call you.
How do I use my rewards points?
If you have unused rewards points you may use them after 30 days of original purchase by simply applying them in your cart in the checkout process. To apply points, press the "Click here" under the Secure Checkout button.
Payments & Billing
When will I be charged? When will my card be charged for my order? When will my payment be taken?
Your credit card will be charged once your order ships out. Please note that sometimes your tracking number is not yet available when an order is shipped, but you will receive it within 24-48 hours from the date of shipping. Special order items are charged as soon as the order is placed with the manufacturer and is non-cancellable at that point.
When will my account get credited?
It takes us approximately two business days to process a credit back to your credit card account and 7 business days for it to appear on your statement. After AppliancesConnection.com issues the credit, the rest of the process is out of our ability to speed up. At this point merchant services and your Bank determine how long before the credit posts in your account. This is normally 7-14 business days. This is the exact process in reverse order as when any merchant charges your card. The customer will think there is an immediate withdrawal of the funds, but it is really only an authorized hold. Once merchant services and the merchant's bank has processed the charge then the funds will appear in the merchants account. Again, the same time frame applies to the merchant.
