Kenmore Firebox Grill Settlement
- Claims Forms can be filed online or by fax or mail
- Settlement Administrator contact info is available
If there’s anything that has been gleaned from previous class action settlements it’s the fact that consumers just DO NOT appreciate when a product begins to rust prematurely. The Plaintiffs in the Oaks vs. Sears Roebuck Co. class action lawsuit apparently share this same sentiment. The suit was originally filed over allegations that Kenmore Grills sold by Sears were manufactured with fireboxes made out of galvanized steel making them defective and prone to rust prematurely. Sears, on the other hand, denies any wrongdoing whatsoever but has agreed to enter into the Kenmore Firebox Grill Settlement to avoid the burdens and costs associated with litigating the matter any further. Those who believe they are Class Members can get a claim filed online by going to the designated settlement website and clicking the Claim Form button.
