"LEMON! Self Clean feature has design defect!"1.0 starson by CiaoHound
Pros: Beautiful design. Convection oven is easy to use & converts temp for you. Love blue interior as it's easier to see spilled burnt messes & makes cleanup easier. Rack design great when half of oven has tall item like a turkey. Variable size burner
Cons: Self Clean feature is defective. 1st time I used it, it melted the display motherboard & locked oven, shutting off power. Noisy fan when oven is cooling. Hot air vents toward cook. lower oven takes forever to heat! LEMON!
Summary: WARNING WARNING WARNING... DON'T BUY THIS OVEN. It looks amazing and has a lot of great features. Someone was innovative with the design. It looks like a high end professional oven But looks are deceptive. LG knows of the problem with the motherboard but refuses to replace oven as it says it's "repairable." Every time the self clean melts the display motherboard and locks up the oven, you have to pay a repairman to come out and fix it! Even if you have an extended warranty, you have to pay a deductible. You shouldn't have to call a repairman every time you use a feature on your oven! Waiting for repairman 4 days before Thanksgiving... been told parts can take 6 weeks to order. I bought this double oven/convection oven because I am a maniac with holiday baking. The broken oven has ruined my Thanksgiving dinner plans and likely much of my Christmas baking. This is BRAND NEW and cost over 2k so I refuse to buy a new oven as I will need to replace my microwave too.
Check to see if your state's LEMON LAW applies to all consumer products and not just cars. LG should have to replace the entire oven and they apparently are refusing to stand by their products. I'm also going to check with the Consumer Product Safety Commission as the heat it takes to melt a motherboard may also be a safety/fire risk.
LG should do a recall of these ovens. Just from the number of the same complaints on the reviews, there must be 1000s of people who have had the same problem.
BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE... DO NOT BUY THIS OVEN!!!!
