LG Electronics USA Inc. has agreed to settle a class action accusing it of knowingly selling defective refrigerators. The Plaintiff, Jeannette Clark, alleged LG’s Signature Model refrigerators have a programming defect. She has filed a motion seeking preliminary approval of the settlement. Pursuant to the settlement, LG Electronics agreed to repair any of the more than 390,000 refrigerators allegedly subject to the defect; pay for up to $5,000 of property damage per class member, including up to $500 in out-of-pocket expenses for spoiled food.

If the repairs are unsuccessful, LG Electronics will hand out $1,500 discounts toward the purchase of a new refrigerator. The settlement also includes a one-year extension of the refrigerators’ warranty. The value of the settlement is dependent on how many class members seek repairs or file claims. That defect was said to be in the refrigerator’s main control panel, which included a programming defect.
