PHOENIX (CBS5) -

GE Appliances has issued a voluntary recall on roughly 1.3 million GE, GE Adora, GE Eterna, GE Profile and Hotpoint dishwashers in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The dishwashers were sold between March 2006 through August 2009 for $350 to $850. The dishwashers were sold nationwide by appliance dealers, authorized builder distributors and other stores. The dishwashers were sold in exterior color and finishes of black, white, bisque, stainless steel and CleanSteel.

GE has issued the dishwasher recall because of 15 separate reports of electrical failures in the dishwasher's heating element. Seven fires resulted in electrical failures and three fires cause property damage since Aug. 9, 2012. There have been reports of injures because of the electrical failures.

Consumers can find the both the model and serial numbers on a metallic plate located on the left tub wall visible when the door is opened, see the attached photo to the right.

The recall involves the model and serial numbers with one of the following sequences:

Brand: GE, GEAdora, GE Eterna, GE Profile

In addition, the Hotpoint dishwasher beginning with model number HLD4 is also part of the voluntary recall.

If you own any of the dishwashers involved with the recall you are told to immediately stop using the dishwasher and disconnect it from its electrical supply.

GE is offering a free in-home repair kit for the repair or you can receive a $75 GE rebate towards a new GE front control plastic tub dishwasher or a $100 rebate towards the purchase of a new GE front control stainless tub dishwasher or GE Profile top control dishwasher.
