Dishwashers Recalled Due To Fires, Models Listed

Dishwashers manufactured by GE Appliances & Lighting are being recalled due to reports of fires. Five fires have been reported, four of which caused minor damage to kitchen counter-tops, one also damaged cabinets and caused additional smoke damage to the home, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using recalled the dishwashers, disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it, and inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire. They also note that it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The problem has been identified as water condensation, which can drip onto the electronic control board, causing a short circuit and resulting in an overheated connector. The overheating can cause a fire.
