I bought a 12-cup G.E. coffee maker from Walmart in May 2012. On Nov. 2, 2012 it overheated and began to smoke, leaving a scar on the pad it was sitting on. Fortunately we were in the kitchen when this happened and were able to unplug it before it caught fire. While the model number is different, this is the identical machine to the one that was recalled in 2010.

Model number of this machine: 898682

I took the machine back to Walmart but they would not exchange it as it is past their 90 day limit. I have kept the machine if you want to examine it.
