Norcold Settles Liability Suit...Do you have $$ coming?

This in from today...

Norcold has agreed to pay $33 million, pending court approval, to settle two class action lawsuits in federal district court in Los Angeles on behalf of customers who purchased certain Norcold refrigerators.
The settlement applies to consumers who own or owned a Norcold 1200-series refrigerator manufactured between Jan. 1, 2002 and Oct. 1, 2012, or who currently own a Norcold series N6 or N8 manufactured between Jan. 1, 2009 and Dec. 31, 2013.
The suit alleges design defects in the units, and that Norcold attempted to hide or downplay the defects. In some of the units, defects in the refrigerator can cause overheating or result in increased risk of fire, according to the suit.
The lawsuit applies to recalls that affect up to 141,922 units of the 12-series, plus 303,882 N6-series units and 123,879 N8-series units. Norcold spokesman Larry Weis said that 82 percent of the affected units have been inspectected, repaired, replaced or are out of service. Additionally, the company has extended a three-year warranty to N6 and N8 series units in which leaks were detected. "
