We stay in Mumbai. My washing machine is out of order since 13 Nov 2008. We had lodged a complaint on the same day . We have been following up daily wth their service personnel. They assure us but do not turn up. We have talked to various people including Lakshmi, Ehsan Malik, his Assistant. The complaint no is 2416377. The worst part is that we have taken AMC. What is the use. What can I do ?

Please do not buy IFB. Our experience has been really bad.
I have purchased IFB Elina Dx wahing machine on 27.10.2008 from NEXT retail shop, 10-1-25, Asilmetta Jn., Near RTC complex, Visakhapathnam - 530 003 A.P, India (Tel 0891-2501161) BILL NO. 0303098 / 27.10.08and took delivery on 7th November'2008. IFB service technician attended for commissioning of the equipment and sold us Stand, cover & tap connection for Rs.1690/- and he started the unit & with in 5 min he left. While opening the packing no papers i.e. User manual, Warranty card etc., are found. Later we tried to use the washing machine and found many complaints in the machine. Later on we have repeatedly contacted IFB service but nobody bothered to provide us prompt services. Twice I have personally visited IFB office and picked up their service technicians and shown the machine to them. Finally they confirmed that there is probblem with the machine and the MCU(Motor Control Unit) got burnt due to which the machine is not performing. We are pretty sure that this problem is persisting with the machine from the day one but IFB technicians tried to hide the fact and managed. This machine was originally supplied to us with problem persisting. We are very much up happy & dis-satisfied with the aftersales support from IFB and we never expected such a negligent services from a World reputed brand of IFB status.


We do not mind going to any extent to recover the loss from IFB. WE REQUIRE POSITIVE & PROMPT ACTION WITH IN 24 HRS FROM NOW...

Entire Digital System is not working. - IFB - Washing Machine(Senorita)

Dear Team,
Four months before we purchased the brand new IFB Senorita fully automatic Washing Machine at NEXT Showroom in West Tambaram. It is in good condition for a week then after we faced some problems in the machine including digital system it didnt work properly. We decide to inform the show room people they send the service people and give the temporary solution but the problem is not rectified then after we informed several times but the solution is same service people came and gave the solution for that time only, no one give the permanent solution.We don't know where we go and ask regarding the warranty, the machine is only four months old . We know only the show room people only.We need the problem is recitified for permanently otherwise the replace the machine.So pls look into the matter and give the proper response immediately.

Service Engineer not attending - IFB WASHING MACHINE

Complaint registere do on 08.11.08. Ticket No. is 2401416. Problem not rectified even after 20 days. What a poor response. You are forced to go to Consumer Forum.
My IFB w/m is just over a year old and within that period i had a whole lot of problems both with the machine and more so with the service. Immediately after the one year pewriod i was hounded for the AMC and in all my innocence i thought AMC service would be better. I am having a valve problem with the machine for the last one month and no action from their side. I told them to atleast let me know if they are unable to do it. Absolutely no response. I am disgusted. I very strongly recommend that nobody go in for IFB products please anymore
To the sr.manager ifb
I am a resident of anna nagar chennai .I have been contacting Mr. Ramesh for servicing my machine for the past three months.He gave me the address of another service centre at alwarpet but in spite of repeated calls no one is attending.If the spare parts are available in the market please inform or else send someone to repair. The machine costed around 22000 & service is so poor.
I would like to forewarn prospective buyers of IFB products.Please don't buy an IFB product.You would be doomed as the IFB personnel don't care for the customers.
I have made the cardinal mistake of buying an IFB W/Machine and am being harassed by the IFB personnel They tell lies and could'nt care less for customers.The whole IFB mechanism seems to be fraudulent.Please beware of them.

no service although under AMC - IFB/ washing machine

I have registered a complaint with the customer care of IFB and the docket no. issued is 2409151 on 21 Nov 2008. I am also under AMC and I have been issued a receipt cum invoice from IFB
bearing no. 4307 dt. 7 June 2008.
I have contacted the local office at Visakhapatnam and addressed
the issue with one Mr. Phanindra but there has been no action on the same. I have made several calls but no action has been taken . They had finally come to check up and they had completely
dismantled the whole washing machine and informed that the tub has to be replaced. This was about 7 days ago. At this stage when nobody was responding we got the no. of the Branch head of Andhra Pradesh, Mr. Leo...he just refuses to pick up his mobile .Please help us resolve this issue
Not knowing the lackadaisical attitude of the IFB Service at Chennai, and the organization as a whole to their customers, I have was a sucker to have purchased a IFB washing machine and on top of it I entered into AMC. To get at them over telephone is indeed an ordeal as neither you can get through nor no is there to give any responsible response. Their promises that their service personnel would be looking into the problem at once all seem to be written on cold water. Normally all products are more or less equal in performance, the response for service should be outstanding to make the product best in the market. Here it is the worst. The response is poorest of poor. I curse the day our family decided in favour of IFB. Never again I will make the mistake and I vow I will go out of my way to prevent, at any cost, any of my relatives or friends opting for IFM machines. It is a promise.

I have IFB 6 KG digital washing M/c, I/m so frustrated and surprised to see the kind service provided by IFB service center.

I have AMC for this m/c.
I booked the first complaint on 18th Nov regarding outlet blocked, and nobody turned up till 24th Nov, The day service Engineer came he said part needs to be Changed and he dissappeared for indefinite time, Then I called up IFB manager I'll not mention the name, Due to him he turned up and changed the part. But till today I'm facing the same problem and 2 times service Engineer have (after so many calls) come, spend total 5 mins and says the m/c requires de-scaling, I then purchased their expensive de-scaling agent and still struggling to get the m/c's outlet to be corrected.

I was blind admirer of IFB and always recommend their products inspite of expensive compared to other company's products, but now I HAVE LOST THE FAITH.

I also see that their is a huge disconnect between the call center who takes complaint and the service center.
I am in Chennai and have purchased IFB fully automatic machine 3 years back and the machine is under AMC. The service is really pathetic and they NEVER stick on to the commited date to fix the problem. When we contact the Service Engineer he will point out to his Manager, and when we contact the Manager he will not commit on the date at all.

My complaint No. is 2519306 dt. 09-Dec-2008. Service Engineer visited couple of days back and said some component is gone. He is saying the spare has arrived and his manager has to approve him to replace. When we check up with the manager, he says the spare is not available and will be available only during next week (How sure it is?). Whom to believe? We are helpless after investing our money in this product.

Day by day it is becoming a big worry because of the VERY poor Service of IFB in Chennai. Looking the right contact person to escalate this to next level.

My Complain No.2490089
I have renewed my AMC after initial warranty expired on 29 Aug 08. I have paid the amount for AMC 4659.00 for another two years. For money received they gave an receipt. But till date i didn't get my AMC papers. After repeated calls too they don't bother to deliver my papers. very poor customer approach by the company. The technicians too are not trained suitably. Please stay off from any IFB product.

I am under AMC. For two years I had no problem with the machine but I kept renewing my AMC. Your services have become horrible. The tube in my mach broke and I have not been able to
wash. On 15th, Dec, Monday I caleed the service centre -[25776208] and requested her to send a tube, but she said that she would only attend if I register the complaint at 18604255678. There was no response there, only a recorded message to give our name and tel no with std code and the customer care would get back. There was no person attending the call. I got back to her and reported the same. She called me back that there was a server problem and she would help me out. Till today, Friday morning, 19th there is no call or person coming to help. My clothes are lying unwashed for 5 days now. I will be taking this matter with the consumer court as I have records of all thes calls and conversations. From a customer who used to praise IFB to all friends and many of them buying these products, I am thouroughly unhappy and if I dont get any response by today afternoon, I will have to proceed against you. Last 3 days both the service centre and complaint numbers are not responding at all. Either they keep ringing or they are engaged. SHAME ON YOU!!!
