We rang your smart meter 'help desk for hours none of the things you mentioned happened and the experience was horrendous. Firstly the installation of the electricity smart meter not gas meter has blown and is blowing the electrically operated PCB in the gas boilers. Technicians did not check all appliances were functional before and after the installation and your helpline offered no heater. In fact, they point blank refused to accept any responsibility and implied that we had somehow blown the PCB ourselves. They dont seem to understand the simple facts that 1) the boiler was fully functional before the smart meter installation 2. the boiler was non functional after the installation 3. that they turned the power off. IT WAS NOT a fault on our RCD , an unconnected random power surge that was nothing to do with the installation nor are we crooks that deliberately broke our boiler. A £5 voucher won't sort it and we were left with NO heating or hot water and told to get our own gas engineer as the original complainant above. They have no intention of refunding us £300 for the repair and the 1.5 extra days I had to take off work - their sole intention was to deny deny I am so angry at being treated like this

It appears after all I'm not the only one having issues with E.on and Morrisons Utility services. On 26th April E.on sent Morrisons Utilty to my home to install Smart meters. However after not getting permission to turn off gas to do gas meter Install I now find myself without heating or hot water for seven days. After spending nearly in excess of 12 hours calling E.on and Morrisons over that period, they're not accepting liability. Morrisons sent a Senior Technician out on 30th April to check install which he stated technician should have sought permission prior to turning gas off and shouldn't have touched the inner casing of boiler. He would email report back to Morrisons to advise this and assured me would be honest and shook my hand. I then get a call from exec team of E.on to say Morrisons aren't accepting liability. The Senior Technician failed to state anything in his report that he said would do and has audacity to state my wife agreed to turning off gas. After contacting Morrisons themselves they stated would open another complaint as original complaint been closed based on misleading info and would get back to me. They never got back to me and after three call backs to the complaints team they stated need to go ombudsman. So I now find myself in the added situation with E.on who have left myself and my young family without any heating or hot water for seven days. They have now taken out a direct debit at a higher amount. After a call to same resolutions team at E.on 1st May the manager agreed to put Direct Debit back to original amount and refund difference. I now find myself this evening the manager from last night hasn't refunded difference and reset Direct Debit back. Furthermore a different manager tonight stated I can pass you through to a separate team if your struggling to pay bill which isn't the case. The same said ma ager agreed my energy usage has t went up. When questioned said manager he couldn't give an answer and as contact centre shut at 8pm and then terminated call.
So to some up E.on and Morrisons Utility have broken my boiler which I have to replace at my own expense although letter states like in other posts would leave home as found it. I've been out with heat of hot water now going into 8th day. They've taken money out my account at a higher amount without prior warning. When challenged agreed would refund and reset back Direct Debit back original amount and assured me would happen hasn't so lied to me then to be told I'm having money issues tonight and could be passed to their debt team but when challenged to be then hung up on. Have technicians lie blatantly to my face and be hung up on by nearly 5 managers and two senior managers. Be promised callbacks by so many senior managers and an exec in CEO dept not happen. To be called a liar as well as my wife, I'm only worth £35 compensation. I'm now having to seek legal advice to see where I go next.
Thanks E.on and Morrisons bravo
