GE has recalled approximately 174,000 GE Profile and Monogram dishwashers due to a potential fire hazard. The CPSC states that water condensation can drip onto the electronic control board, causing a short circuit and resulting in an overheated connector.

Five reports of fires due to this problem have been reported to GE. Four of the fires caused minor damage to the kitchen countertops, one caused minor damage to cabinets and smoke damage to the home. No injuries have been recalled
