Lemon Laws for AC Units

In the consumer world, it can be especially frustrating to purchase an item as expensive as an air conditioning unit only to learn that it is defective. This is a significant investment of your money as well as your time, and your efforts in an attempt to repair it should not be a total loss. Every state has versions of lemon laws that enable consumers who have made certain purchases to recover compensation or receive replacements. 

Consumer Rights With Defective Appliances: Federal Law

Every state has its own variation on these statutes, and most do not incorporate appliances such as air conditioning units. If you fall outside of your state's lemon law provisions, however, all hope is not lost. You could be eligible to bring a claim under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975, which is distinct from state laws. 

The Magnuson-Moss law covers numerous products, including major appliances like air conditioners. It operates at the federal level and therefore should not be confused with any of the provisions of your state's lemon laws. If you have been excluded from filing a claim under state laws, consider a consultation with an experienced Magnuson-Moss lawyer. 

A breach-of-warranty claim could be brought under federal law and can help you recover the compensation you deserve. While the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is not heavily promoted or publicized, it applies to many products that are covered by a manufacturer's warranty. 

Warranties are important written documents that detail a manufacturer's obligations to you as they relate to repairs. In general, if you have to get your air conditioner repaired multiple times for the same malfunction and you have been unable to achieve a successful result, you could be entitled to money or a replacement.

Lemon Laws for AC Units FAQs

  • When Do You Have Grounds for a Legal Claim?

    If your air conditioner does not have a warranty and was marketed as is, it might not be covered by Magnuson-Moss. However, this regulation does protect consumers when a written warranty exists. You must first provide the supplier or the distributor with the opportunity to reasonably correct the repairs. The primary purpose of this federal law is to stop manufacturers from attempting to mislead consumers. 

    The most important warranty applying to your air conditioner is the factory one from the manufacturer rather than the one that covers labor for a specific period of time. If the unit has a problem under the warranty terms, the manufacturer must honor it. It is reasonable to expect that there could be occasional failures in your air conditioning unit because of the hundreds of electronic, mechanical, or heat-sensitive components. However, if you have suffered from repeated problems and the manufacturer has been unsuccessful in repairing them, this situation could be relayed to an experienced lemon law lawyer to assist you with filing a Magnuson-Moss claim. 

  • Getting Legal Help With Your Lemon Law Claim

    If you own a defective appliance like an air conditioning unit and have already given the manufacturer a reasonable chance to fix it, your consumer rights could be protected. A lawyer can explain your options to you and have a big impact on the speed of resolving your case. 

    You may be able to receive a full refund or replacement if the product is still defective after multiple repairs, and a knowledgeable attorney can help make this process faster and easier for you. 

  • Magnuson-Moss Requires the Manufacturer to Pay for Your Case

    The fee-shifting provision of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act requires the manufacturer to cover reasonable attorneys’ fees if the plaintiff wins their case. As a result, our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan will work with you for free. Our fee comes from the manufacturer if we win your case.
