About - LG LRE30453SB

The LG LRE30453SB is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the LRE30453SB are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Comment:
My 1st and last experience with LG. Not because I called a junk man to take out this range. But because when I called LG to complain, they said too bad you should of bought the extended warranty. I called a repairman to repair the board after I had it about 15 months. Had to call him back, I found I would of spent more than my current GE a very good range, without a motherboard. This good range is around 500.00 Thank god I don't hear that beeping anymore. F1

Key pad frequently fails, especially the right side numbers. Unplugging does not work. I have found that running the oven cleaning cycle restores the keypad function for awhile. I suspect that moisture is getting into the electronics, causing the keypad not to function. This means that the back right burner cannot be used for steaming or cooking that requires a pot of boiling water.

I have had a problem with the control panel since 2010. I was told to unplug and replug the machine to reset. Well I've been doing this since. LG does not back their product. Now I have to pay for something they postponed so it would not be covered by the warranty. No more nice guy. I will never buy another LG product. I have purchased the washer, dryer, tv's, refrigerator and dishwasher and I'm not happy with any of their products. Will never buy LG again.
