GE Recalls More Dishwashers

In case you have not heard or received a notice from GE, they have recalled about 174,000 GE Profile™ and Monogram® Dishwashers, manufactured from July 2003 until December 2006.
GE has determined that water condensation can drip onto the electronic control board, causing a short circuit and resulting in an overheated connector. This poses a fire hazard to consumers. GE will provide a free repair to all consumers with units affected by the recall. Consumers who wish to replace their dishwasher with a new model can use a GE rebate of $200 for the purchase of a new GE Profile dishwasher or a GE rebate of $400 for purchase of a new GE Monogram dishwasher. We ask that you not use your dishwasher until it is repaired and to disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it and inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire.
To see if your dishwasher is on the recall list, you will need the model and serial number which is located on the front left of the inside as you open the door.
Then look the numbers up on the chart below or go to GE’s site to look them up.
