If you can prove it is not working and they refuse to fix it under warranty, they are in breach of implied warranty which is against the law.

Days out of service waiting on parts counts towards the Lemon Law. Usually it is 30 days or 3 tries to fix. Check your states law to be sure. I waited 3 weeks one time for parts.
