If you or someone you know purchased a Whirlpool KitchenAid brand self-cleaning oven you could be a class member in the Whirlpool KitchenAid Self-Cleaning Oven Class Action Lawsuit. This lawsuit is entitled Richard Wolfson v. Whirlpool Corporation and is under the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for theEastern District of New York.
The lawsuit revolves around claims that the Whirlpool KitchenAid Self-Cleaning Oven was sold with know defects. The lawsuit states ““The Ovens feature a self-cleaning capability that, upon the first or second use, damages the control panel as a result of excessive heat, requiring costly repairs in order to begin reusing the Oven. After the fifth or sixth use of the self-cleaning cycle, the heat from the self-cleaning cycle damages the control panel beyond repair.”
The KitchenAid class action lawsuit claims that Whirlpool knew about the claimed defects but sold the product anyways. Whirlpool knew that these selling these defected self cleaning ovens would result in costly repairs and ultimately result in the destruction of the oven, yet continued to sell the ovens? Wow that is pretty bad if true. A complete copy of the Whirlpool KitchenAid Self-Cleaning Oven lawsuit can be read here.
