Welcome to the Oaks vs. Sears Roebuck Co. support website. This website has been established in order to provide class action members with information regarding the lawsuit against Sears Roebuck Co.

The lawsuit alleges that certain Kenmore barbecue grills, with model numbers 01566, 03495, 16142, 16154, 23673, 23676, 23681, 23682, 23683, 23766, 34172, 34176, 34178, 34308, and 34611 (the “Grills”), sold by Sears were manufactured with firebox trays made out of galvanized steel, making the firebox trays defective and resulting in the firebox trays rusting and failing prematurely.  Sears denies the claims of Plaintiffs, denies all allegations of wrongdoing, fault, liability, or damage of any kind to Plaintiffs or the Settlement Class, denies that the Grills were defective in any way and that it acted improperly or wrongfully in any way, and is entering into this Settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation.  The Settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing.
