I couldn't disagree more with your " the supplier are the problem in my book. You only have so much control."statement.
FR is the buyer of all the vendor supplied appliances which makes FR ultimately responsible for them. If FR said they would only build the stripped down unit void of all appliances and have the purchaser specify what appliances they want in it,then you might have a point.
But FR doesn't do that. If you brought a Chevy and then put a Ford engine in it,would you blame Chevy for any engine problems you might have afterwards?
Along with their ultimate responsibility for the quality of their units, FR does have control regarding what appliances go in them. If the appliances are crap,then FR should stop buying those appliances until those appliances are improved.
I think if all FR customers who have problems with appliances were forced to deal only with that appliance manufacturer,you would see more corrective action and improvements made by the manufacturer.
