Defective French Door Refrigerator Lawsuit – Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Maytag & Jenn-Air
Is a design flaw causing ice buildup in Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Maytag and Jenn-Air refrigerators?
RPWB attorneys are investigating a potential design flaw that causes ice to build up in certain makes and models of French door refrigerators, a problem that can result in expensive repair bills and loss of food.
Through our investigation, we believe we have identified a design flaw impacting Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Maytag and Jenn-Air refrigerators, but we need YOUR help to confirm our findings. We would like to speak with consumers in California, New Jersey or Florida, who have experienced ice or frost build up near the evaporator coils in their Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Maytag or Jenn-Air refrigerators. The models in question have French doors with the freezer located below. In these units, there is a second evaporator coil located behind the deli drawer. The ice buildup becomes so acute that it is difficult to close the drawer. Eventually, the ice buildup causes the refrigerator to stop cooling and requires a service appointment with an appliance repair person. If you have experienced this problem, please call us at 866-762-6243 or fill out the form on this page. You might be eligible for compensation if you choose to participate in the lawsuit.
Help us protect consumers by telling us about your fridge problems
Models of refrigerators that may be susceptible to ice buildup:
Please note, in some instances there will be an additional letter on the end of the model number that indicates its color.
Please call us or fill out the form on this page if you are the owner of any of these models and have developed the problem of ice or frost building up on the evaporator coils. You may be eligible for additional compensation by agreeing to be a class representative on behalf of other refrigerator purchasers.
