What’s the problem?
September 9, 2017 – Terms of the settlement were not immediately disclosed, but a letter from plaintiff Rebecca A. Wilson’s attorney to Judge Matthew W. Brann told him the proceeds have yet to be received, but are coming from China and are anticipated by Nov. 1.
According to the lawsuit, there was a house fire at Wilson’s residence on June 22, 2014, which was caused by a recalled dehumidifier. The complaint was seeking damages in excess of $500,000.
In 2014, investigators listed the source of the fire as a dehumidifier in the cellar but said they were unable to determine whether an electrical malfunction caused the blaze. Damage was estimated at $390,000.
Electrolux has denied the humidifier was defective and was the cause of the fire. The company noted in a court document that the Frigidaire dehumidifier was manufactured by Gree Electric Appliances Inc. of Zhuhai, China.
