More than 1 million GE and Hotpoint dishwashers have been recalled after a series of fires. The recall covers machines sold from March 2006 to August 2009 for $350 to $850. “GE is aware of 15 reports of dishwasher heating element failures, seven of which resulted in fire and smoke damage beyond the unit,” GE said in its recall notice. Three of the fires caused extensive property damage, but no one was injured according to the CPSC.
All of the recalled dishwashers have front controls and a plastic tub, according to the notice. Owners of the impacted dishwashers are advised to stop using them and turn off the fuse or circuit breaker to the machines. GE will provide a free repair to all consumers with units affected by the recall. GE is offering to repair the problems in homes for free, or provide discounts for the purchase of a new GE washing machine.
The recalled dishwashers include GE, GE Adora, GE Eterna, GE Profile brand machines models beginning with GLC4, GLD4, GLD5, GLD6, GSD61, GSD62, GSD63, GSD66, GSD67, GSD69, GLDL, PDW7, PDWF7, EDW4, EDW5, EDW6, GHD4, GHD5, GHD6, GHDA4, GHDA6 and serial numbers starting with FL, GL, HL, LL, ML, VL, ZL, AM, DM, FM, GM, HM, LM, MM, RM, SM, TM, VM, ZM, AR, DR, FR, GR.
