Is some one available tomorrow to call out to look at appliance please
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Can someone please get back to me as I'm in work soon thankyou

This is not an immediate service I am afraid it can take time for experts to respond, so to confirm you have power to the socket and changed the plug fuse but still ont getting any sign of life?

Assuming you keen to get an engineer out to replace the fault part (most likely the PCB) please advise your postcode.

No sign of life atall

The good news is the appliance is showing as still under the 5 year warranty from what I can see, a new PCB would have cost around £150 so I would on the first instance raise a claim with Samsung warranty team, you can do this via web chat or by calling them (see here).

Should they be unable to help then I can recommend a local firm, but based on cost of parts I would suggest you opt for a fixed price repair such as the one here.

Do let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Hi, I haven't heard from you in some time, do you require any further assistance or can I close the question?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
I'm not sure which number to call can you send me the number to call please

Sorry I am not clear what numbers are you after, do you mean for a local firm to come out?

If so I suggest using the first price firm above on 0330(###) ###-####

Please let me know if you need anything further.

Also, I'll check back in with you in 1 day on 3/30/2020. I can also answer any additional questions that may arise. Don't worry, there's no additional fee for this follow-up.

No not a local firm what number do I call for Samsung to claim and someone to come out

Samsung are not offering phone calls at this time, if you use the link here the two options available are facebook messenger and web chat both run mon-fri 9am to 9pm.

So if you message them now you should get a response.
