A copy of the Class Action Complaint can be found here.

KSG has been investigating claims against Samsung for several months. Upon investigating the problem, we found that the problem is widespread, and Samsung should be held accountable for its defective ice makers.

The Class Action Complaint against Samsung for Refrigerators with defective ice makers alleges that Samsung’s French Door External Dispenser built-in-door ice makers (also known as “ thru-door” ice makers), which are set into a “cut-through” in the refrigerator door 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.”  The Defects are identified in a technical service bulletin issued by Samsung on July 17, 2015 (“TSB 2015”).

Our investigation remains ongoing.  If you or someone you know has a Samsung refrigerator with a defective ice maker, please contact us for an initial consultation.  You may be eligible to be included in our class action lawsuit.  All initial consultations are free of charge.
