Question about LG Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Yes, we were a couple of dummys when we received our brand new LG stove, with convection oven,glass top and very fancy, and we put tin foil to cover the bottom of the stove and of course yesterday when I got ready to change it, we discovered that doing that was a BIG NO NO. Now we have this brand new oven with pieces of tin foil baked into the bottom of the oven. Yes, we even self cleaned it last night for THREE HOURS, and we were in hopes that the tin foil would turn to ashes, but obviously did not since I'm not now writing to you. Any suggestions on how to get this tin foil off the botton of our oven? Its just so ugly looking.

I really don't know what to tell you. During the clean cycyle the metal probably melted and is permantly sealed to the bottom. You are lucky the oven still works. Sometimes using foil will destroy sensors or other things. NEVER use foil in ANY oven!!!!! The only exception is to partially cover the shelf underneath something you know is going to make a mess. Even then don't cover more than about 60% of the rack.(Never do this in a convection oven as the fan will blow the foil ) Also NEVER!!! allow foil to come in contact with a hot burner. It will melt to the smooth top or coil.

The inside glass panel, in the oven, has a hairline crack. Is the oven still usable?


Hello ewaters56 - Honestly, I suggest contacting a professional to have the inner glass panel replaced and I do not recommend for the oven to be used.

Oven door will not remain fully closed


Noiselab is not correct for all cases. As Buzz says, if the springs are strong then the foil fix works and works really well. Refer to attached photo for guidance in conjunction with instructions below. Note my possibly simpler answer at bottom.

I cut some short narrow strips (about 4mm x 20 mm) from a tin can and folded them over into a flattened "U". You can back off the large Phillips head screw on the frame of the oven where the door hinges are inserted and sit the tin over the little plate that is held by these screws and then tighten so that one end of the "U" sits between the oven chassis and the adjustment plate. If it still doesn't quite close add more tin as required. Refer photo for terminology.

Now the simpler solution which I didn't try but which would probably work after I contemplated the problem in retrospect is this. The reason I didn't think of this was that I thought the hinge went into a tube or slot. Later I realised it is just a simple cantilever design which is why the tin foil solution works (ie lifting the middle support of the cantilever produces a corresponding closure of the door). When I inspected the large Phillips head screws to insert the tin foil these were completely loose. Try this first then. Slide the adjustment plate up as high as the tolerance of the Phillips screw allows and then tighten it off hard. This will raise the bottom edge of the plate just as the tin foil method does. If not enough then proceed to the tin foil method.

Things bake unevenly. Cakes get brown on edges


first make sure you are not blocking a rack.air needs to circulate from the bottom to the top.never cover a rack with tin foil or a large pan. if alls good you may have a temperature problem.check temp if its off raise oven temp as high as it goes hold bake button untill it beeps it will display 0 go up to raise temp up down to lower you can only adjust 35 deg.Good luck!

Does putting tin foil on the bottom of the oven reduce the life of the element


No. That must be an old wives tale. Never heard of it. The problem with foil on the oven bottom is it gets covered with grease and may fire-up. Now on the other hand if your oven catches fire from grease build-up on the foil, well that will shorten the elements life and maybe yours.

How do I remove tin foil baked on brand new oven bottom?


Unfortunately you can't remove that foil, you will end up doing more damage to the liner. the only thing you can do is replace the liner. And it's a big job, if the manufacture makes a replacement part for your unit, and if they do it will be costly. Your warranty will not cover it.
