The settlement applies to owners of certain LG refrigerators manufactured between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2017.

Consumers claim the refrigerators have a defective compressor, which makes them “prone to repeated cooling breakdowns.”

According to court documents, the settlement “…offers cash payments and prospective relief to approximately 1.55 million individuals who make up the Settlement Class.”

Owners are eligible for a cash payment if their LG Refrigerator stopped cooling, or they experienced delayed or unsuccessful repairs, replaced their LG Refrigerator, or lost property (spoiled food, beverages, medicine, or other perishables, or had property damage from leaks).

The deadline to file a claim is January 11, 2021.

Owners who can document their claims are eligible for up to several thousand dollars, and those without documentation are eligible for up to $450.

    Does this cover Westinghouse refrigerators made by LG?

  2. I filed all the paperwork necessary to receive $650.00 from this settlement(I had replaced my LG with a new GE before the notice of the class action suit}. Now I am waiting for my money six months after the settlement. Is there another appeal going on or did the lawyers eat up all the settlement money? I have not heard anything and cannot find any information on the internet.

    1. I hope you got your settlement money; because it is now MARCH 2022 and I have not received my settlement. Also, I can’t get an actual non-auto response/status update from “the administrator”…

  3. i have heard nothing either and have sent emails with no response from law firm. sent all my paperwork certified and have the signature card .signed for october 20,2020.guess maybe money is not coming.we too bought a new fridge before settlement paperwork came to us.would be nice to get replies
