Norcold Inc., Thetford Corp. and Dyson-Kissner-Moran Corp., the makers of malfunctioning refrigerators made for motor homes and houseboats, have agreed to pay $33 million to settle with a putative class that alleged a refrigerator part corroded, overheated and in some cases caused fires. The settlement fund will be divided among the would-be class members depending on which refrigerator they purchased and whether they already paid for repairs or replacements, according to the terms of the settlement. The class initially estimated that replacing their refrigerators would have cost $700 million. The settlement applies to consumers who own or owned one of the three series of RV refrigerators included in the suit: the Norcold 1200 Series manufactured between January 2002 and October 2012, or who currently own a Norcold Series N6 or N8 made between January 2009 and December 2013.
