Cove Appliance is recalling thousands of dishwashers over fire hazard concerns.
Most of the time, dishwashers are reliable appliances that wash dishes without a hassle. They simplify life and make it easier to tackle other tasks. However, one type of dishwasher was just recalled. Earlier this month, Cove Appliance recalled about 42,000 built-in residential dishwashers over concerns the heating element isn’t working properly. The recall, issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, states:
“The heating element in the dishwasher can fail to properly shut off and can overheat, posing a fire hazard.”
So far, the company has received five reports from consumers about burning smells, smoke, and flames erupting inside the dishwashers.
The recall involves the company’s 24-inch built-in dishwashers with model numbers DW2450 or DW2450WS. The serial numbers on the affected products are 20000100 through 20044445. For now, consumers should unplug the recalled dishwashers and contact Cove for a heating element replacement “and installation of another thermal protection device.”
