 o
LG electric ranges

I'm looking to change out my electric range with a new electric range, and I was looking for any feedback from people who own LG electric ranges, specifically the LG LRE30757ST model. (I'd prefer to get a gas range, but the costs to convert from electricity to gas might be too high.)

I went to JD Powers to check out their winners, and Wolf and LG were their winners for 2011 in their home appliance category of range/cooktop/oven.

But, the problem with JD Power's survey is that its a pretty big category that looks at how a company's product performed as a range, cooktop, and oven when I'm just interested in how its range performed. LG gets high marks in JD Powers, but that just mean the ovens and cook tops are great while the LG range is just okay. Or, LG's gas ranges might be great while their electric ranges aren't that good.

I'm most interested in finding out how durable the LG electric ranges are, especially since LG is fairly new to appliances like ranges. When I'm looking at buying a new range, I'm most interested in how it looks and the durability and how hassle free will it be- I don't want something that will require a bunch of service calls to fix it or break down as soon as the extended warranty ends.

(My current electric range is one of those old school ranges with electric coils that won't die even though its over 20+ years old, but I'm replacing it because it doesn't match the other appliances in the kitchen.)

Do you think the LG LRE30757ST model is too complicated with too much electronics, which will make it prone to breaking? I read about avoiding ranges with too much electronics, but it seems all the ranges on the market have all those electronic parts in them. Or, should I even worry about that because a gas range like Viking doesn't have all those electronic parts yet its pretty notorious for breaking down a lot.

I found a floor model of the LG LRE30757ST on sale for a really good price, but it won't matter if it breaks down a lot or is not long for this world.
