Case Name

Sharp Electronics Corporation (“Sharp”),
Case No. 5:19-cv-00488-JSM-PRL,

United States District Court, Middle District of Florida

Case Summary

Sharp Electronics Corporation (“Sharp”) is accused of manufacturing their Microwave Drawer Ovens with a design defect, causing their premature failure due to electrical sparking (or “arcing”) within one of the parts known as the waveguide, found at the top of the microwave, and which may extend to the magnetron. This lawsuit also claims that Sharp also violated warranties and other manufacture and sale obligations of said microwave oven. Sharp denies such claims and agreed to this Settlement to avoid trial costs and risks.

2. If your five-year Limited Extended Warranty expires prior to or on January 7, 2021, you have until May 7, 2021 to submit a claim for a Documented Arcing Event.
