A new class action lawsuit against Whirlpool Corporation addresses refrigerators alleged to have defective wiring that compromises the appliance’s functionality and safety.

If you bought a Whirlpool refrigerator, you likely did because the company has an outstanding reputation of making quality products. But, according to the plaintiffs, the wires, designed to flex with the opening and closing of the refrigerator doors, are prone to fraying or breaking prematurely due to the use of substandard materials.

This defect, often manifesting within a few years of purchase, significantly hinders the refrigerator’s performance by disabling critical features such as ice makers and water dispensers—key selling points emphasized in Whirlpool’s marketing materials. Furthermore, the plaintiffs highlight an alarming safety concern: the risk of electrocution or fire stemming from exposed, live wires, a danger exacerbated by the presence of water and known to refrigerator manufacturers like Whirlpool.
