Florida Consumers Should Be On The Alert for Defective Products in Wake of GE Recall

A wiring problem that could lead to fires and burn injuries is prompting appliance giant General Electric Co. to recall 2.5 million dishwashers. The recall affects dishwashers sold under the GE Monogram, Hotpoint, Eterna, GE, GE Profile, and Sears-Kenmore brand names.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, customers should examine their dishwashers. Any customers who find that their dishwashers are affected by the recall should stop using their devices at once. Customers should contact GE for a rebate towards a new appliance or for free repairs.

According to the government, the dishwashers affected by the recall have wiring that can overheat when liquid rinse solution escapes the dispensers. So far, almost 200 complaints have been made to GE about the problem. 12 fires have been reportedly been caused by the defective products.
GE has received nearly 200 complaints of overheating, including 12 fires caused by the washers. The machines’ wiring is susceptible to shorting out or overheating, the government said, if liquid rinse solution leak outs of dispensers.

Customers can contact GE at 1-877-607-6395. More information is also available about the dishwasher recall on the GE web site at www.geappliances.com. So far, it is not immediately clear whether any personal injuries have been caused by the malfunctioning dishwashers.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
