GE has issued a recall of several different models of built-in dishwashers. The defective products may be a potential fire hazard due to a problem with a leaky rinse-aid dispenser.
GE has received 191 reports of overheated wiring including 56 reports of property damage. There were 12 reports of fires that escaped the dishwasher. Fire damage was limited to the dishwasher or the adjacent area. No injuries have been reported.
The recall includes GE built-in dishwashers sold under the following brand names: Eterna, GE, GE Profile, GE Monogram, Hotpoint, and Sears-Kenmore. The dishwashers were sold in white, black, almond, bisque and stainless steel.
GE is offering to repair the dishwashers for free or a rebate for a brand new dishwasher. You may contact G.E. for more information at 877-607-6395.
