    Hi Stephen,

    I too have rarely had a problem with a Lego set that I’ve purchased in the last 30 years but when I did, the customer service was awsome.

    Just recently I bought the new Lego holiday train set with the extra power functions. Right now it does not work. I’ve been working with Lego to figure out why. The Lego rep I talked to thought the remote control was damaged but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I have faith that we will figure out which compent is not working correctly this week and they will send me a replacement part, if needed, as soon as possible.

    Take care,

    Steve S.

    Update – I talked to Lego customer service on 10/25/2016. They claimed my problem with the remote control was caused by the batteries I was using in it. I got some different batteries and the remote worked flawlessly with the motor and remote senor. On a side note when I originally called, I asked the Lego rep if the issue could be caused by the batteries I was using (I had read this on the internet for an older remote). The original rep told me that issue had been resolved in the remote I had just bought.

    New Lego customer service story

    A couple of years ago, I put together a Lego pirate ship I had bought in the late 1980’s/early 1990’s. I noticed one of the pieces in the set was broken. I contacted Lego about the broken piece. I expected to have to buy a replacement piece. Instead of having to buy the piece, Lego sent me a new one for free. Keep in mind this set was at least 25 years old at the time.

    All I can say is Lego treats its customers right.
