Ice Maker Settlement
A defective ice maker is the crux of the lawsuit entitled In re: Electrolux Home Products Ice Maker Cases which is pending on the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. Class members contend that Electrolux sold and deceptively designed, and manufactured “French Door” refrigerators that contained a ice maker that did not work. The ice maker in the cross hairs of the class members is called a Gen 1 Ice Maker and was installed in Crosley, Electrolux or Frigidaire “French Door” refrigerator-freezer units. Obviously Electrolux denies any action of wrong doing but has agreed to a settlement in order to avoid uncertain and ongoing expenses.
