About - LG LDE3017ST

The LG LDE3017ST is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the LDE3017ST 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.

Very Unreliable

Pros
Attractive Design
Heats Up Quickly
Cons
Unreliable Performance

Comment:
When using the self cleaning feature, the range blows an internal fuse. The entire range shuts down - the cook top and the second oven do not work and the oven doors will not unlock. We have only attempted to clean the main oven twice, both times blowing the fuse. This fuse - which only costs $2.95 - is not stocked in Canada, delaying the repair even longer. Last Christmas we had to barbecue the turkey in -16C weather. Looks like this Christmas may be a repeat.

Comment:
I love this oven! The small oven on the top quickly heats up and allows me to cook most things (casseroles, pizza, cookies, etc.).I haven't even had to use the lower oven because of the convenience of the top oven. Also, the stove top heats up things FAST - which is lovely. The digital display is easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing. Honestly, I haven't read through my user manual yet, but I will say that the timer and preheat alarm are annoying. It's a long little jingle that continues on-and-on. But honestly, doesn't bother me that bad and at least I can hear it when it goes off. So far, I love it!

Stopped Working After 5 Minutes-Terrible

Comment:
The stove worked 5 minutes after its first use. Called Customer Service and the spokesperson could barely speak English and was not very helpful. Basically said there was no one in my area to repair it which was crazy. I gave her a business that repair my LG Dryer under warranty who was 10 miles away. She said she would get back to me in 3 to 5 days and would not permit me to call the local business. No Thanksgiving Dinner thanks to LG!!!
