We are investigating an LG refrigerator compressor failure lawsuit after reports from consumers that their LG fridge’s linear compressor prematurely failed, necessitating a costly repair. Some consumers are furious that their repairs weren’t covered under LG’s much-touted 10-year linear compressor warranty. If you’ve had your LG refrigerator fail and stop getting cold, you may be affected.

Lawsuits: LG Refrigerators Fail due to Linear Compressor Defect

Several lawsuits have alleged that the compressors in several LG refrigerator models are defective and fail early. For example, one lawsuit says the average refrigerator is supposed to last 13 years, but LG refrigerators frequently fail within 3 years. The lawsuit says it is a “pandemic” of defective LG compressors failing. The lawsuit also says that LG has not replaced or offered refunds to consumers who have made warranty claims about malfunctioning LG fridges.

Another lawsuit says that the LG compressor defect causes harm to consumers in a variety of ways, such as:

  • consumers are charged for replacement parts, which should be covered by LG’s warranty
  • consumers are charged for labor that isn’t covered under LG’s warranty
  • consumers have to wait long periods, without a fridge, for a repair
  • consumers sometimes receive compressor replacements that are much noisier than their original one
  • some consumers experience repeat failure of the replacement compressors
