A series of fires has prompted the recall of more than a million GE and Hotpoint brand dishwashers.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of about 1.3 million machines sold from March 2006 to August 2009 for between $350 and $850.
There were 15 reports of heating element failures. Seven of those failures resulted in fires, but three of those fires caused extensive property damage.
Owners of the impacted dishwashers are advised to stop using them and turn off the fuse or circuit breaker to the machines.
Consumers are also asked not to return the recalled dishwashers to the retailer where they were purchased because they are not prepared to take back the units.
GE says it will repair the problem free of charge.
The dishwashers were sold in black, white, bisque, stainless steel and CleanSteel.
The model and serial numbers can be found on a metallic plate located on the left tub wall that is visible when the door is opened. The brands and models affected will have the following sequences on the metal plate:
GE has determined that an electrical failure in the dishwasher's heating element can pose a fire hazard. GE will provide a free repair to all consumers with units affected by the recall. We ask that you
