Home Warranty Scam....... Thought I was covered with American Home Shield

Yes....You got it right ! Their non-paying issues seem to be mainly with Heat pumps and Air conditioners that are using R-22 and have leak issues .
I spent my Lawyer $$$ on getting a new unit at the cost of $4700 directly out of my pocket.

For what this is worth....a couple years ago I dropped my K-3 in the lake with a Takumar lens on it ! Immediately snatched it up , shook the water of , changed the lens , and it never missed a beat....ever !

This is where an extended Warranty for drops and spills and accidental damage may come in ?
Even though our cameras are advertised as Weather Resistant , I always give them the full weatherproof treatment with rain hoods and such during inclement weather.
Why chance it ?
Sounds like quite possibly you did challenge the weatherproofing and quite frankly....You Lost !

Great FF lens that works well on crop sensors. If you like nice colors and subject isolation , this one fills the bill nicely for a low price.

I purchased it brand new. I also purchased the DA 28-45 lens separately.
However I had Heat Pump issues and had to sell the lens before I even took it for a spin.

I took my brand new 645Z out for its first ever spin tonight. The lens was a Pentax A 35mm f3.5
I have had the camera for over two months , but didn't yet have a lens until yesterday.
There is no other way to say this...….Im Completely Blown Away !
Im Speechless...…..In Shock !
I never knew what I had been missing since giving up my Mamiya RZ67ProII nearly 2 decades ago.
I looked at my very first converted raw file full size and simply couldn't believe what I was seeing.
Im just so happy over this I had to tell someone....:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Home Warranty Scam....... Thought I was covered with American Home Shield

A couple weeks ago my 9yr old heat pump took a serious unexpected dump !
Leak in the condenser coil that cant be repaired.
Ohhh.....OK.....No Problem as I have a nice little Home warranty with American Home Shield and my unit is covered for a $100 service call.....Right ???
WRONG !
They only cover Freon @ $10 a pound and this unit uses R22 @ $130 a pound and takes 11 pounds !!!!
And......since its R22 after January 1st 2019......The unit cant be worked on at all as the Freon is outlawed by EPA !
So long story short......They debited the $100 service co-pay from my account anyway , never compensated a Dime, and I was told by the Service man to buy a new unit outright...….They will pay nothing !!!

So much for covering my rear-end......Had to sell my new KP and a bunch of other camera stuff , and rack my credit card for 2K but its done.
My new unit is in and has a 10 Year Mfg warranty with 4years on labor.

If ever presented with this company just PASS on it as American Home Shield.....is a Rip-Off and Scam !

End of my Rant.
