1.3 Million GE Dishwashers Recalled Due to Fire Hazard


General Electric has issued a recall of 1.3 million dishwashers due to a heating-element failure that has caused extensive fire damage in at least three homes. The defective heating element is found in GE dishwasher models including GE Adora, GE Eterna, GE Profile and Hotpoint.

The chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated today, “Consumers should stop using these dishwashers immediately and disconnect the power.”

According to GE, the dishwasher defect has so far resulted in seven fires, three of which were severe. They’ve received fifteen reports of problems with the heating element.
