LG Complaint - LG Products are not only SUB PAR they are UNSAFE!
This specific review is about the LG stove stated above, however, we purchased all top of the line LG kitchen appliances for our new home just 36 months ago. I negotiated the best deal I could so when my husband forced me to buy extended warrenties on all of them costing another $1,000.00 I was not a happy camper. I am so glad I listened to him. You hear that???? a woman who is admitting she is glad she listened to her husband. Today, the repair man was back for the third time in 18 days. Our stove has been repaired FIVE times since we bought it, so far a total of 9 repair visits and we have been without a working stove/oven for a total of 11 weeks out of the past 36 months. 18 days ago a relay pcb burned out, a new one was ordered and put in a week later. It lasted only a week and burned out again Sunday night in the middle of cooking Sunday dinner. The repair man came back today, removed the back panel and reported the relay pcb burned out and melted AGAIN. So...he ordered another relay pcb and back element. I am scared to death this stove will catch on fire and burn our house down with us in it!! Last year, our main power board on the stovetop was replaced three times in a 3 month period. We were unable to cook for 7 weeks during that pathetic fiasco. In the first 16 months in our new home our LG dishwasher was broken and repaired 4 times....flooded our beautiful oak floors on 2 occasions causing warped area and lifting of the oak planks. The 'mother board ' fried each time according to the repair company. These LG appliances are JUNK. We were lied to and deceived and I'm trying to figure out what can be done from a legal standpoint. I think a MAJOR CLASS ACTION SUIT is necessary to stop these people from selling this crap. We were told they were made in Germany and were top of the line. Now, I find out they're owned by GE and made in KOREA. Most of the parts I've seen on the back of the stove after the panel is removed are plastic....plastic that melts, shorts out and catches on fire. LG has taken the loser route out every time, replacing the cheapest parts first hoping to get off easy, not caring that their customers are stuck without working appliances for god knows how long til someone figures out what to do to get them to work. PROSPECTIVE BUYERS....BEWARE!!!! LG APPLIANCES ARE TERRIBLE! THE COMPANY IS EVEN WORSE.
