Cove Appliance Recalls Faulty Dishwashers

Cove Appliance of Madison, Wis., recalled about 42,000 Cove Appliance 24-inch built-in dishwashers due to potential safety risk.

The heating element in the dishwasher can fail to shut off properly and can overheat, posing a fire hazard.

The firm has received five reports of burning smells, flames, and smoking inside the dishwashers. 

This recall involves Cove Appliance 24-inch built-in residential dishwashers model numbers DW2450 and DW2450WS.

The company urges consumers to immediately stop using the recalled dishwashers, unplug them from their power source, and contact Cove Appliance to schedule a free repair. 

Cove Appliance will install a second thermal protection device and replace the dishwasher’s heating element.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
