Samsung Refrigerator Class Action Lawsuit Complaint Filed Over Alleged Frozen Coil Defect

Samsung Refrigerator Owners File Class Action Lawsuit Complaint Against Samsung Over Alleged Defect That Causes Refrigerator Coils To Freeze Over.

A class action lawsuit has been filed against Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (hereafter “Samsung” or “Defendants”) in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (styled Jeff Weske, Jo Anna Frager and Darryl Myhre v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Civil Action Case No. 2:10-cv-04811-WJM -MF) alleging, among other things, that Samsung sold refrigerators containing a defect that causes the refrigerators’ coils to freeze over, resulting in the failure of the refrigerator to cool, which has caused consumers to suffer damages for lost groceries, spoilage and repairs, according to class action lawsuit news reports.

The Samsung refrigerator class action lawsuit complaint reportedly alleges that certain Samsung French door, side-by-side and bottom freezer refrigerators (model numbers RF266AASH, RS263BBWP, RB1955SH, RS2533SW, RS267LASH, RS267TDRS, RS2630WW) the refrigerators are designed and manufactured with heated coils that are intended to prevent excess frost from developing in the back of the machine, but instead of preventing frost, the coils allegedly allow frost and ice to build up in the refrigerators until the ice clogs and/or disables the machine’s fans, making it impossible for the fans to work to keep the machine cool.

The Samsung refrigerator coil class action lawsuit complaint is reportedly brought on behalf of the following putative class members, unless otherwise excluded:

All persons or entities residing in the United States who own, or have owned, Samsung refrigerator models RF266AASH, RS263BBWP, RB1955SH, RS2533SW, RS267LASH, RS267TDRS, RS2630WW and/or any other Samsung refrigerator model containing a defect that causes the refrigerator’s coils to ice over and the refrigerator to stop cooling.

    I purchased the Samsung Refrigerator Nov 27th 2010. Just noticed the ice coming through the small slots on the back panel of the refrigerator yesterday. The fan is making a racket and the refrigerator is not cooling properly. Please add me to the class action lawsuit.

    I bought my Samsung refrigerator around may 2012 (RF263BEAESR) and I’ve had Sears fix my cooling system 2 times and the problem still persist.
    I paid around $2500 for this refrigerator with the mentality of “if I pay a lot of money I should get something good that I won’t have to worry about for at least a decade” boy was I wrong.

    My Samsung side by side model # RS267LASH-XAA, has been freezing the food in the frige for over 6 months now. I have to put any food that I do not want frozen on the middle shelf or higher. I have had the coils cleaned and the drain hole cleared a number of times, I set the temp at it’s highest setting and it still keeps freezing up. I am not happy with Samsung!!

    My samsung refrig is a lemon, when I first purchased it it went out a few weeks, then they brought me a different one and soon the cooling of the refrigerator went out as we were wondering, why , sour milk, they nicely came out and replaced something, toall a long story short , I was told by the store I purchased it that my warrenty was done, now I find out I had a four year all along, 4pnths after the fact, now I have a very new looking refrig, that doesnot work, freezer is great, but the refrig frosts all up inside with no circulation, very sad and unable to have it serviced because of cost!! What a shame!!
