Massive, Nationwide Recall Of Appliances

Because of a wiring problem that could cause fires, General Electric Company is recalling two-and-a-half million dishwashers.

Government regulators say the recall includes dishwashers sold under the brands Eterna, GE, GE Profile, GE Monogram, Hotpoint and Sears-Kenmore.

Consumers have been advised by the U-S Consumer Product Safety
Commission to stop using the devices immediately and contact the
company for a free repair or a rebate toward a new dishwasher.

GE has received nearly 200 complaints of overheating, including 12
fires caused by the washers.

Customers with one of the affected models can receive a 150 dollar rebate to purchase a new GE dishwasher or a 300 dollar rebate toward the purchase of a new GE Profile of GE Monogram dishwasher.

For more information contact GE at (877) 607-6395

    Maytag also has a recall on some of their dishwashers for the same reason. They sent me a package of parts and a local repair shop installed them at no charge. Didn't need to buy a new one.
