Refrigerator Warranty Coverage

If there's one appliance in your house you rely on daily, it's your refrigerator. That's why keeping it running properly is a must. Over the course of its life, your refrigerator will probably experience a few problems. Rather than panicking when you discover a covered problem, you can simply use your American Home Shield® home warranty plan. 

American Home Shield will pay up to $2,000 per covered appliance ($4,000 with the ShieldPlatinum™ plan) for access, diagnosis, and repair/replacement per the limitations and exclusions in your plan agreement.
