Class Action Lawsuit against LG

Did anyone get the letter and check in the mail from LG because of Energy Efficiency issues with the LG French Door fridge?  The letter says that if you cash the check - they are no longer liable.  I am wondering if anyone knows of a lawsuit or any other details related to this? I have the LG LFX21960ST French door refrigerator, infact the first one purchased on 12/12/06 had so many defects, it was replaced by LG(I wanted a full refund) on 5/31/07 with the same model. The major problem was the ice maker which I was told was completely fixed in the new fridge and would never be a problem again. By 10/6/07, the ice maker stopped working again - I wanted a full refund but only got a service call to replace ice maker and fan. Now on 12/30/08 I received the letter and check for $64.25 as related to the energy efficiency issue. I do not believe the refrigerator was ever designed to meet the DOE requirements at the time it was released for sale. Any change of the requirements after the design date by the DOE would be ex post facto and LG should not be liable for specs subsequent to their design date. Thus, there is a smoking gun if LG is handing out money. This is prime

    We've had no problems with the operation of the refrigeration, but after getting LG's check regarding the energy efficiency issue, we too would like to find out if there is a class action lawsuit. We are relunctant to cash the check (it says it must be cashed within 90 days), releasing LG from any further liability.

    I have had my fridge (LFX25960) for two years.  Nothing but problems.  Freezer fan, ice maker, etc.  I got the letter in the mail a month ago, went to the website to provide the "requested information" and was asked to provide three dates and times when someone could all to schedule a service appointment.  Been three weeks and have heard nothing.  If there is a class action suit pending, count me in.  If not, tell me where to go to start one.

    I have had three LG french door refrigerators - the first, purchased in September 2005 failed due to a freezer problem, it was replaced with a dented model, which was subsequently replaced with another model. All this happened within 6-7 months. Now, two years down the road and there has been nothing but problems with the product. The freezer fan and unit had to be replaced completely about three months ago and it has now failed again. I am furious about this product and the misrepresentation by LG that they sell a good product. My service repair company told me they won't honor LG warranties because LG does not pay them! I have wasted so much time trying to get satisfaction from LG and thrown away so much food because of this company.

My check for $ 16,- also said "Accepted as Full and Final Satisfaction of All Claims" despite LGs promise to make payments every year for the additional energy use. They never informed me that my fridge does not meet the "Energy Star" requirements. I won't cash this check and will wait for a class action law suit. I bought an appliance because I believed that I was doing something for the environment and then its like "sorry, you bought an environmentally unfriendly product and that you are destroying our environment but we will pay you $ 16,- to relieve your bad consciousness"

Has anyone accepted the offer to "fix" the problem with this frig. According to them the fix is replacing a computer board. Does this sound like a fix or a patch and is it a recommended option.

Lg french door fridge

do you have mechanical button switch that should close the light if you close the door?... they could be defective. try to look for these button switch that the doors presses as you close them. if they dont have, then they may be using a magnetic door switch which would be very hard to locate and trouble shoot.

Zenith 60'' LCD TV a blue screen is not sky blue it looks dark blue to black

Go to, look under the service icon at the top and then you should see a listing for "Class Action Lawsuit/Settlement". If you follow that link, they'll have specifics listed for this suit that was brought against them (including tv model #s included in the suit). There was an agreement reached to fix/replace affected t.v.s, court date was in Feb. I believe, and just waiting now until they post information on how to proceed.

Good luck and hope that helps.
