GE Recalls 174,000 Dishwashers Due to Fire HazardWashington, DC: GE Appliances & Lighting is recalling about 174,000 GE Profile® and GE Monogram® Dishwashers because the water condensation can drip onto the electronic control board, causing a short circuit and resulting in an overheated connector. This poses a fire hazard to consumers.
GE has received five reports of fires, four of which caused minor damage to the kitchen countertops where the dishwashers were installed and one caused minor damage to adjacent cabinets and smoke damage to the home. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the GE Profile dishwashers manufactured between July 2002 and December 2005 and GE Monogram dishwashers manufactured between January 2004 and December 2006. They were sold in white, black, bisque, stainless steel and with custom panels. A complete list of the recalled model and serial numbers are listed through the link below.
The dishwashers were sold at retail stores nationwide, appliance dealers and authorized builder distributors from July 2003 through December 2006 for between $750 and $1,400.
