in Buffalo Defective Products - Product Liability

Buffalo residents should be aware that GE recently recalled approximately 1.3 million dishwashers.  The defective products recalled pose the risk of fire, and are being voluntarily recalled by General Electric.  Seven fires have been reported to GE arising from this defect.  Thankfully, no personal injuries have been reported. 

The recalled models include dishwashers manufactured under the GE, GE Adora, GE Eterna, GE Profile and Hotpoint names.  They were sold nationwide from March of 2006 through August of 2009 and came in black, white, bisque, stainless steel and CleanSteel finishes.  Information regarding specific models can be found at

The heating elements in these dishwashers can fail, leading to fires.  According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, owners of these dishwashers should cease using the machines immediately and disconnect the electrical supply by shutting it off at the fuse or circuit breaker. 
Recalled dishwashers should not be returned to the store.  Instead, GE should be contacted with the model and serial number.  They will be supplying either free repairs to the defective models or rebates toward new dishwashers.
