GE Dishwashers - October 2010 Recall

GE Dishwashers The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the General Electric Company (GE) have announced a recall of 174,000 GE Profile™ and Monogram® Dishwashers, manufactured from July 2003 until December 2006. These dishwashers are operated by an electronic control mounted inside the top of the door. Submit the information below or call the GE Recall Hotline to determine if your dishwasher is included in the recall.

Additional Information
GE has determined that 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 will provide a free repair to all consumers with units affected by the recall. Consumers who wish to replace their dishwasher with a new model can use a GE rebate of $200 for the purchase of a new GE Profile dishwasher or a GE rebate of $400 for purchase of a new GE Monogram dishwasher. We ask that you not use your dishwasher until it is repaired and to 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.

GE is aware of 5 instances of escaped fires, four of which caused damage to the kitchen counter-tops where the dishwashers were installed and one caused damage to adjacent cabinets and smoke damage to the home. No injuries have been reported.

The model and serial numbers are important, as not all dishwashers are included in the recall. Look at the inside on the front left side of the dishwasher tub to find the model and serial number.

This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which will also monitor the effectiveness of the recall program.
