    We had several leaks because of the Insinkerator water filters & because of that we had to have the water filters disconnected & can now use only the instant hot but not the filters.

    ADMIN – Hi Johana,

    Consider filing a claim.

    How do I get a PIN number to complete my claim? I previously posted a comment but I need a pin.
    Thank you

    ADMIN – Hi Johana,

    If you did not receive one in the mail or via email you need to contact the class action administrator.

    When i filed my claim and it was approved for the 3 replacement filters back in Dec. 27, 2017 and it stated that i would receive my filters in 60 days of the notice.

    What is the delay?
    When will i receive my filters?


    ADMIN – Hi Stu,

    I encourage you to reach out to the class action administrator.

  4. Stu Doyno says:

    It is now June 5, 2018 and still no filters. This entire process is a joke, I called the administrator and you are told to leave a message and NO BODY CALLS YOU BACK, I have left multiple messages and never a call back.

    ADMIN – Hi Stu,

    That sounds super frustrating. Try reaching out to class counsel.

  5. Stu Doyno says:

    I called the class counsel and they connected me to the 800 #, i called back and the receptionist took my number, however i do not put much hope on getting a call back.

    To anyone who reads this, don’t waste your time with this recall, i am contacting the NYS Attorney General to file a formal complaint.

  6. Johanna Gaeta says:

    I have been trying to file a claim but the form is asking for proof that we had damage because of the filter. Our cabinet under the sink has already been repaired so I do not have any pictures of the damage. I have a receipt & an invoice for the repair but not a picture of the damage. So How can I provide proof of the damage.
    I have called Claims Administrator numerous times to get an answer but no one has called me back.

    ADMIN – Hi Johanna,

    Consider getting a notarized statement from your plumber.
