Comment from BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORPORATION 9/11/2019
A service visit was completed and the technician found that the wire connections were loose at the terminal block. Poor wire nut connections can degrade over time and cause the connection to overheat. Customers are encouraged to provide additional information about incidents to Customer Service by calling 1-800-944-2904.
