General Electric Company Complaint - GE Defective Refrigerators
Excessive frost build up inside the freezer and the ice dispensing chute; water dripping down the exterior front of the freezer door on to the floor; ice maker nightmares: too much ice production, too little or none at all. Ice or water dispensing on it's own on to the floor. Flooding of homes; mold and mildew around and in the dispensing area and on the rubber gaskets; excessive condensation inside the freezer or fridge; temperature control fluctuation resulting in itmes freezing inside the fridge side or too warm; small shards of plastic dispensed along with ice; black specs of iron oxide deposits inside ice cubes; and eventually total failure of the unit...
These are some of the symptoms of the massive quantity of defective refrigerators discovered in the state of Florida and several other states as well. Years of manufacture begin with 2001. If you have a GE refrigerator with a model number beginning with GSS, GSH, HSS, ESS, GST, or HST then check out the class action lawsuit filed in Florida that seeks national status. Other model prefixes that exhibit similar problems begin with PSS, PCS, PSI. The TFX, TBX and TPX models have their own unique set of problems, including the biggest complaint which is the auger inside the ice bucket rusting thereby producing rust covered ice cubes.
GE used a low grade of steel to make these augers for years just to cut costs and didn't care how much rust we all had to live with.
