Who can get money from the settlements?
A cooling compressor is the component that provides the cooling function in many household and some light commercial refrigerators and freezers. Hermetically sealed cooling compressors of less than one horsepower are included in the settlements, but cooling compressors used in air conditioners are excluded from the settlements.
Individuals, businesses and governmental entities are eligible to receive money if, between 2004 and 2008, they purchased:
|a cooling compressor; and/or|
|a product that contains a cooling compressor (including household and some light commercial refrigerators and freezers).|
* The Ontario Court may authorize prorated payments of less than $20, if necessitated by the total value of eligible claims.
