Frigidaire Gallery Dishwasher
Model Number: GLDB953CS0
Serial Number: TH32693740

Unknown date of purchase, but appears to be original to the house built around 2005/2006.

The product began smoking with a strong smell of burning plastic. The unit was not running any cycle at the time and had not run one for about 12 hours at the time of the incident. Removing the front panel there is a spot of black charred plastic (approximately 1"x1.5") on the front of the control box cover (made of plastic) there is also black scorch marks at the top vent of the control unit box.

The 4 hour delay indicator button was flashing a green light, but all control buttons were non-responsive.

Power was removed from the unit and the smoking stopped.

The product will not be repaired due to its age and potential other damage.
