Case Name

Dickerson, et al. v. York International Corporation, et al.
Case No. 1:15-CV-01105-CCC
United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania

Case Summary

The Plaintiffs claim that JCI manufactures and sells air conditioning systems and heat pump systems, including air handlers and packaged HVAC units, containing defective copper evaporator coils and copper condenser coils that corrode and leak refrigerant. Plaintiffs claim that the Copper Coils are made using uncoated copper tubing and are susceptible to corrosion. It is alleged that a kind of corrosion called formicary corrosion causes microscopic tunnels to form within the copper tubing and causes the coils to leak refrigerant. Plaintiffs claim that JCI: (a) knew or should have known about the defective Copper Coils; (b) should have informed its customers about the defective Copper Coils; (c) should have manufactured the Copper Coils with coated copper or aluminum tubing; and (d) should have replaced the defective Copper Coils rather than simply replace the refrigerant in the unit when the Copper Coils leaked.

The defendants deny the allegations but have agreed to settle

    I have a York air conditioner installed byhjacks July 2011. I have had repeated problems as well as froze up and shut down. This summer it had to be totally rebuilt. It is a York. I believe this is a problem

  2. Randy Sparks says:

    I had a Complete New York system installed ,Heat/ Air on 2/01/16 . I’m probably not untitled for a Class Action Settlement . I have had no problems with it.

    ADMIN – HI Randy,

    You are a Settlement Class Member if you are an individual or entity in the United States who during the time period from January 1, 2008 to November 22, 2016 purchased an uncoated York, Fraser-Johnston, Luxaire, Coleman, Evcon, Guardian, Champion, or Dayton brand copper evaporator coil or copper condenser coil manufactured and sold by JCI or any of its Affiliates, separately or as part of a split system or packaged residential air handler, condensing unit, or HVAC unit, that is covered by the original limited five year warranty or extended ten year warranty.

  3. Jim Oldham says:

    I have a Luxaire system that was installed March 2012, so it is just out of the original 5 year warranty. I do not have the extended warranty. Am I covered by this settlement for the indicated reimbursement if I experience a coil failure in the future (i.e. failure after March 15, 2017)?

    ADMIN – Hi Jim,

    Per the terms it appears you would need to be under extended 10 year plan.
    The later of: (a) 120 days after the date of the Court’s Final Judgment and Order of Dismissal; or (b) 120 days after the Settlement Class Member experiences a Copper Coil failure while the Copper Coil is covered by the original limited five year warranty or extended ten year warranty.

  4. Michael Cooley says:

    I had a York AC unit installed 06/13/2016. I received a Notice of Class Action Settlement in the mail concerning this unit, but I have not experienced any coil failure. When I tried to submit a claim it asked about a coil failure. Since I have not had a coil failure, am I included in the settlement or am I protected from any future failure? Do I need to submit the claim form and simply indicate no failure for either period? Am I covered under the 10 year warranty?

    ADMIN – Hi Michael,

    You can claim if your coil fails within the five year guarantee. You have up to 120 days after it fails.

  5. Joe Cacciotti says:

    My indoor York coil unit (A coil) has been confirmed to have a leak and is under the 10 year warranty. I have spent $867.93 to add freon and to test to find the leak. Now I’ll have the expense of labor (est. 4 hous) and additional freon, even though the coil will be covered under warranty.

    Questions. Why can’t recover my expenses to confirm the leak and additional cost for installing the replacement coil?

    Should I recover my cost through small claims court or will this class action suit reimburse my out of pocket expenses?

    ADMIN – Hi Joe,

    We are not in a position to give you legal advice.

  7. Darrell Daniels says:

    I have York air conditioning coils that have failed and will cost $ 1000.00 to replace. York says they will pay $75 . The coils were installed in late 2010. I want to be included in the lawsuit. Six year old coils should be totally replaced. Stay away from York.

    ADMIN – Hi Darrell,

    If you believe you are a member of the class please file a claim.
