I think Sears has cheapened the appliances. Like you, I used to trust their appliances. A few years ago my great Sears vacuum of 25 years or more died, so i went right back to Sears fora replacement. The new one was a piece of crap. The old one was so much better. Barely 3 years old now & babied every time it was used just because it was so cheesy, it has lost suction to the point i bought another vac for the floor and only use the Sears on the drapes. Also i had my fridge die & the repairman said not to get a Kenmore because they no longer used the great Whirlpool compressors like they used to, but have cheap Chinese ones in their refrigerators now. Whirlpool still uses the good ones, (and also Estate (subsidiary of Whirlpool). And whatever you do, don't get anything Haiet makes. I have a portable A/C of theirs. Will not drain the water. Leaks all over the floor. Junk.
As for GE stoves, I still have one I got about 15years ago. At the time they were advertising that the oven was extra large. But it isn't. Just regular size. One turkey takes the whole rack & side dishes have to go on the other one. Plus all 4 burners are too hot unless you practicallyturn them off. Not much control.
