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. Our home warranty offers one of the best coverages for refrigerators, and are covered in our ShieldGold and ShieldPlatinum plans along with other Appliances and Systems.

American Home Shield will pay up to $2,000 per appliance ($4,000 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 warranty you select.
