40k Cove Appliance Dishwashers Recalled After Several Reports of Burning and Smoking
Several people who have bought Cove dishwashers have experienced smelling smoke and burning materials and seeing flames coming out from the dishwashers. These led to a recall of over 40,000 dishwashers sold in the country.
Around early June 2021, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) sent out a recall all over the country because of the Cove Appliance dishwashers. It was found that the heating element often fails to turn off. It results in the dishwashers overheating, becoming a fire hazard.
