A class-action lawsuit filed in Virginia by consumers who claim their Samsung refrigerators have defects with their ice makers has been ordered to mediation. The mediation was scheduled to begin in June.
The lawsuit was filed in 2017 by a couple alleging certain residential refrigerators with built-in-door ice makers designed and manufactured by Samsung are defective, “…in a number of ways, including but not limited to, defects that affect the built-in-door Ice Makers which results in leaking and slush, over-freezing in the ice compartment, water leakage from the ice house to below the refrigerator crisper trays, fan noise from an over-iced compartment, and 'freezing up'."

NBC Responds units across the country have received more than a dozen reports from consumers reporting similar complaints involving their Samsung refrigerators. Tony Conetta was one of them.
Samsung did not issue a statement regarding the class-action lawsuit, but did tell NBC 6 Responds any consumer with questions or concerns involving their products should contact them directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG.
