GE is recalling about 174,000 of its high-end Profile and Monogram dishwashers after five consumers reported they caught fire, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The CPSC said condensation can get onto the dishwashers’ electronic control board and short circuit them, which causes a connector to overheat. Four of the five fires only damaged countertops. One also burned nearby cabinets and caused smoke damage to the house.
