Class Claims GE Refrigerators Are Defective

LOS ANGELES (CN) - General Electric's "Monogram" refrigerators allow too much internal moisture, causing dangerous mold, mildew and rust, a class action claims in Superior Court. The class claims GE admitted the defect in a 2003 service bulletin to repairmen, but ordered them "not to share it with consumers."

The class also claims that once the refrigerators are rewired according to the service bulletin, they no longer meet the advertised energy-saving levels.

The class covers "hundreds or thousands of Monogram 36-(inch) refrigerators" bearing model numbers beginning ZIR36N and ZIRS36. Plaintiffs are represented by Jonathan Weiss.
