Class Eligibility:

Purchasers of Haier Chest Freezers (model no. HNCM070E) that were manufactured after June 1, 2009.

Estimated Amount:

Some Haier Freezers had a defect that caused them to consumer more power than is normal for the model. The payment amount depends on whether you allow Haier technicians into your home to test your freezer to see if it is one of the defective units.

  • $50 – $150 if you do not allow Haier to test the unit.
  • $108.60 – $325.80 if you do allow Haier to test the unit. If tests show that it does has the defect (approx. 15% of units) then you will receive the entire amount, otherwise you will not receive any payment.

The amount you will be paid within the above ranges depends on how many claimants there are for this settlement. We predict low claim rates, and that payments will be in the upper part of the range.

Proof of Purchase:

Model and serial number.
