DETROIT (AP) -

General Motors is recalling more than 196,000 Hummer SUVs worldwide because the ventilation fan motor controls can overheat and start a fire.

The recall covers the 2006 to 2010 Hummer H3 and the 2009 and 2010 H3T.

The company says the module that controls the heating and air conditioning blower motor speed can overheat when operated for a long time, melting nearby plastic and increasing the risk of a fire. The company reported three minor burns caused by the problem, but no crashes.

Dealers will replace the faulty module and wiring harness at no cost to owners.

GM says the recall covers about 165,000 Hummers in the U.S.
