CPSC, GE Announce Recall of Built-In Dishwashers

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces
the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm below.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless
otherwise instructed.

Name of product: General Electric Built-in Dishwashers

Units: About 74,300

Manufacturer: GE Consumer & Industrial of Louisville, Ky.

Hazard: These dishwashers have a connector that can short-circuit and
overheat during normal use, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: 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.

Description: The following models are included in this recall and were
sold after January 20, 2004: GE dishwasher models 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.

Sold at: Appliance retail outlets and builder distributors nationwide
from January 2004 through February 2005 for between $300 and $400.
