GE Recalls Dishwashers Due to Fire Hazard

submitted on October 26, 2010 by siggy38 in "Products / Gadgets"

General Electric (GE) announced Tuesday that it is recalling 174,000 dishwashers because of a potential fire hazard.

GE Profile and GE Monogram dishwashers may be susceptible to water condensation dripping onto the electronic control board, resulting in a short circuit and an overheated connector. That can potentially spell bad news.

    Thanks for the heads up. We have a GE dishwasher, but it is not Profile or Monogram (the two models covered). Here is a link to the source with info on how to find if your dishwasher is covered by this recall:
