I love the Breadman Breadmaker machine, but I am involved in a running
battle with the company to receive the paddle and bowl I ordered almost SIX
MONTHS ago. I get the royal run around. Here is the note I tried to post to
the bb's bbs.

It is almost 5 months since I ordered the parts. In one month's time, I
have written a certified, return receipt requested letter and have not
gotten the receipt back. I have received a letter back from Kim Polster,
Consuemr Service Supervisor, (a month after the original letter) telling me
to be patient that the parts are still unavailable.

Does this sound like I have a problem? How long do I wait?
