GE Dishwasher Recall: Monogram And Profile Dishwashers Recalled
General Electric Dishwasher Recall: Fire Hazard Prompts Recall Of Monogram And Profile Dishwashers
A potential fire hazard has prompted the recall of 174,000 GE Dishwashers, specifically, the Monogram and Profile line of GE Dishwashers.
GE and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (SPSC) announced the voluntary dishwasher recall on Tuesday.
Hazard: 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.
Incidents/Injuries: 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.
