Air Conditioning Unit

Trane Logo and Units

John Dippoliti bought Trane US, Inc. heating equipment from C&C Heating and Air Conditioning Company because he believed the equipment was reliable. However, when the system failed, the complaint for this class action says, he discovered that the problem was inherent in the design of the unit—a flawed combination of rust inhibitor, compressor oil, and a particular TXV valve design. 

Aspen Series BB Identifying Label

It is costing Aspen Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. $45 million to settle a class action alleging that its Series BB evaporator units, including the coils, pans, and other component parts, are defective. Specifically, the complaint claims that the units rusted, causing rust to seep out through condensation drains, leaving rust stains on property or blowing rust particles into the air.

2015 Suburban

In the complaint for this class action, Plaintiff Jones Won claims that he purchased five General Motors vehicles—a 2016 Escalade and four 2015 Suburbans—and that the air conditioning system is so defective that it has failed in every one of the vehicles within a few months of purchase. In fact, he claims, in two of the vehicles, it has failed twice. The complaint describes the vehicles’ air conditioning system as having a closed area through which coolant is cycled under pressure, alternately warming and cooling but never used up. However, the complaint alleges, GM uses too much coolant, which overpressurizes the system, and the parts of the system are too weak to stand up to the pressure.

The plaintiffs in this case allege that Mercedes Benz USA committed fraud and fraudulent concealment, broke warranties, and violated multiple California regulations by distributing certain Sprinter Vans equipped with rear air conditioning units that allegedly leak water into the interior of the vans.
