Built-in microwave combo wall ovens pose fire hazard, company says; no injuries reported.
LONDON (CNNMoney.com) -- General Electric said Wednesday it was recalling 92,000 microwave combo wall ovens due to fire hazard.
The recall includes built-in units sold under the GE, GE Profile and Kenmore brands. The appliances were manufactured in the U.S.
The recalled units were sold from January 2000 to December 2003 and cost between $1,500 and $2,000, according to GE, which announced the recall with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The company said there have been about 35 incidents of property damage that have occurred, but no injuries have been reported.
GE is offering a free repair on GE and GE Profile units or a rebate toward the purchase of a new product. Sears is doing the same for Kenmore units.
