WASHINGTON (AP) - Because of a wiring problem that could cause fires, General Electric Company is recalling two-and-a-half million dishwashers.

Government regulators say the recall includes dishwashers sold under the brands Eterna, G-E, G-E Profile, G-E Monogram, Hotpoint and Sears-Kenmore.

Consumers have been advised by the U-S Consumer Product Safety Commission to stop using the devices immediately and contact the company for a free repair or a rebate toward a new dishwasher. G-E has received nearly 200 complaints of overheating, including 12 fires caused by the washers.

Customers with one of the affected models can receive a 150-dollar rebate to purchase a new G-E dishwasher or a 300 dollar rebate toward the purchase of a new G-E Profile of G-E Monogram dishwasher.

For more information contact GE at (877) 607-6395.
