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. Refrigerators last, on average, about 10 to 15 years. Over the course of its life, your refrigerator will probably experience a few problems. Rather than panicking when you discover a covered problem with your refrigerator you can simply call American Home Shield. Refrigerators are covered in our ShieldGold™ and ShieldPlatinum™ plans along with other Appliances and Home Systems.

American Home Shield will pay up to $3,000 per covered item malfunction ($6,000 with ShieldPlatinum plan) for access, diagnosis, and repair/replacement of any covered appliance.

If you have multiple refrigerators in your household, we will cover them all per the coverage amount in the home service plan you select.
