Air Conditioning Defective Components. Consumers purchase a Goodman and Amana central air conditioning under the impression that this central cooling unit will last them for years. According to some consumers however, customers just end up paying more for a product that contains a defective component, ultimately causing the unit to stop working properly. On top of that, Goodman allegedly refuses to reimburse customers for the cost of repairs. Our firm is pursuing a class action lawsuit on behalf of individuals who have owned, own, or acquired homes, residences, buildings or other structures in which a Goodman and Amana (brand names since 2007) central air conditioning units have been installed. As a leading law firm that successfully represents people nationwide, we have vast experience with product liability litigations.
AC Breaks, but Goodman Refuses to Honor Warranty
The problem with these air conditioners, according to a number of consumers, is that an internal
component known as the evaporation coil is defective. Allegedly, the problematic coil causes the unit to rupture and leak Freon, a fluid frequently used in cooling products such as ACs and refrigerators. As a result of the alleged defect, the unit is no longer able to cool the air.
Goodman promises its customers that their air conditioners would be “free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and maintenance…” for five to ten years, but consumers are saying that the company has failed to keep its word. Some consumers allege that the cost of adding more Freon totals to over $500. Even so, these customers were told by their technicians that adding more Freon would only temporarily relieve the problem; with a defective evaporator coil, it was only a matter of time before the Freon would leak out again. The overall cost of this alleged defect can end up costing consumers hundreds and perhaps even thousands of dollars.
Allegedly, Goodman fails to honor its warranty for their central air conditioning units. People who have these air conditioners and experienced a defect say that the company refuses to reimburse them for the cost of repair, replacing parts and other costly expenses associated with the alleged defect.
Furthermore, it is alleged that Goodman knew about this issue and failed to correct it in a timely manner. Because of these growing complaints, we are pursuing a class action on behalf of people who have purchased or acquired homes, residence, buildings or other structures in which a Goodman and Amana brand air conditioner have been installed.
