Frigidaire/Electrolux defective microwave causing the handle to overheat to burning temperatures

Claim's number: 81

This Alert Affects: Anyone who owns a Frigidaire / Electrolux microwave with a stainless steel handle

Brand: Frigidaire Electrolux

Product: Microwave

Category: Defective Product

Deadline:2017-10-28

Description:

A lawsuit has been filed against Frigidaire/Electrolux on behalf of anyone who owns a microwave with a stainless steel handle, due to a defect causing the handle to overheat to burning temperatures.

According to documents, the stainless steel handle on the outside of many over-the-stove microwaves can reach temperatures of more than 76°C (168°F) in just minutes when the cooking surface below is in operation, presenting a risk of serious injury to anyone who touches the handle with a bare hand.

The lawsuit states that Electrolux Home Products Inc. could have distributed and sold the defective microwaves throughout the UK. 

The lawsuit calls the handle defect “unreasonably dangerous, as it can result, and has resulted, in injury… including burns to the skin.”

Electrolux was notified about the defect in the USA, but has failed to recall the defective product or reimburse consumers, past or present, who have incurred costs related to their purchase of a defective microwave or injuries.
