The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with GE Consumer & Industrial of Louisville, KY, U.S.
About 74,300 General Electric Built-in Dishwashers have a connector that can short-circuit and overheat during normal use, posing a fire hazard to consumers. GE received 29 reports of connectors overheating, including one report of a fire that spread outside the dishwasher and caused minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.
The models recalled include GSD5500G, GSD5560G, GSD5800G, GSD5900G, GSD5960G, EDW3000G, and EDW3060G, with serial numbers with the first letter A through T and the second letter G, or the serial letters VF. The serial number is important, as not all dishwashers with these model numbers are included in this recall. The model and serial number are located inside the door wall of the dishwasher.
The dishwashers were sold at appliance retail outlets and builder distributors throughout the U.S. from January 2004 through February 2005.
