    Problem: Start button on touch pad for oven only works part time...have no idea why. HELP. Stove only ONE year old :(

  • chill6491 Sep 25, 2008

    I have the same LG oven with the same problem. Have you heard a solution yet?

  • Joseph26 Oct 08, 2008

    I have the same problem as mentioned above. I read elsewere that it may be do to using the self clean as it gets too hot causing problems with the panel. Has anyone else heard this?

  • Joan Crowl Oct 13, 2008

    my panel on this oven has been failing with some keys working intermittently and some not working at all.

    random buttons not working

  • mshafe Nov 03, 2008

    We have the same problem. First the convection bake button stopped working, and now one of the buttons for one of the cooking elements also has failed. The other buttons are working fine. We bought a three year extended warranty and will call them to fix. I will post an anwer once it is repaired.

  • waynenowlin Nov 04, 2008

    Same problem here. I got my panel replaced while under warranty. Now the same problem is happening. Warranty is now expired!

    Same problem. The buttons stopped working on the stove and randomly on some of the oven temperatures (ie the 4 would not work so we set the heat at 399 degrees)

  • AMBER6 Dec 09, 2008

    I have the same problem.... when I push start the oven panel does not work... problems in the past with the burners working intermittenly

  • Not_a_Fan Dec 21, 2008

    Same problem. Sometimes buttons for stove elments don't work. sometimes conv bake doesn't work. for a while, numbers above four won't work at all. If something needs to be at 375, it's either 344 or 400. sometimes resetting the power to it helps for a bit. but that means flipping the breaker or unplugging, neither of whice are good solutions for a range of any expense. i've had better luck with camping stoves.

    I have the same problem & it is Christmas morning. I guess there will be no turkey at our house. My range is the LSB5611SS.

  • kg4tiw Dec 27, 2008

    Ours is doing the same thing!!! Started as coming on and off on its own. Now you have to flip the breaker to turn off. Ours is a year old this month... Very disappointed with LG.

    Our is doing the same thing. We now have to flip the breaker to get it to turn off! What a piece of garbage. None of the buttons work, and in the middle of cooking it will go off on its own. Very disappointed with this product and LG.

    LG sucks!!

    I hate my stove, my microwave and my washer & dryer. I hope people look here when determining what model to buy. If LG knows of such a problem, they should fix it.

    The stove does not reach the proper temp. Convextion does not work at all. I can not time bake either. The burners take turns not working and working.

    I have found out if I turn 2 (use to be 3) of the five burners on, wait until the element is red hot, I can turn on stove. This is the only way. Ugggrrrr.......

    My microwave isn't right. It takes much longer to heat things up.

    My washing machine leaks. I don't think the soft plastic ring forms a good seal between the door and the machine.

    Thanks LG, now I have to spend approx $4,000 to replace all this ****.

    One thing you can be sure of, I won't be buying LG stuff. Hell I won't even buy an LG cell phone and I will tell everyone I know.

    Stay away from LG products!!!!!!!

  • Joan Crowl May 11, 2010

    How can we get together on this to LG? I want them to know that I'm no the only person with this problem as LG customer service implied because they have no service bulletins about it.

This happened to me on Christmas Day morning & it happened once before. I finally remembered how I fixed it. Push the "Clear" button & then push the "Start" & keep it held in until you see the lock button light up (takes awhile - be patient) & then push the "Clear" button again. After I did this the "Clock" worked again - reset the clock to the correct time & push "Start" Then click on "Bake" set your temperature & push "Start". Hope this works for you. It got me out of cooking Christmas Dinner!!!

    Thank you!!! This worked but the oven door stayed locked so we had to flip a breaker, then all was well. This really helped, 2 weeks before Thanksgiving!

I spoke with LG there are no recalls at this time. If you call into to LG phone # 256-772-8860 you can request a case number with the problem and mail a letter to them referencing the case number. If they get enough letters they can make it a recall or you can mail a letter in marked
PO BOX 240007

I have the EXACT same issue. Start button won't work, everything else does. Sounds like a malfunction here. Can we get together and complain? Maybe they'll fix for free?

Oven Locked Out

The back of your range is a motor (right side?) that controls the locking of the door. The position of the rod may not be right because the motor may be bad. You can disconnect the motor and rod. By removing the rod and bypassing the motor, you can now bake.

Whirlpool gold accubake system keeps displaying the message "Dr Lo". Every 60 seconds it will beep like 10 times and display the message then display "start?" Normal function dont work either I can push...

The Dr lo is for the warming draw. I assume you have a warming drawer. Page 17 of your manual describes how this function works. It also states on page 11 "The Off/Cancel pad stops any function except the WARMING DRAWER, Timer and Control Lock. If you have actually unplugged the stove and plugged it back in it should come on with a PF for power failure. You push the Off/Cancel pad to clear the PF and then you have to push start to do anything else. such as bake, etc. Have you pushed Drawer OFF? That should clear the dr lo message. If this message comes on as soon as you plug the stove in or just after you push the Off/Cancell pad or after you push start or bake try to push Drawer Off. If this does not work then it apppears you have a malfunctioning control panel.

Oven won't start

Try pushing the "convection oven" or "bake" button first, then enter the temperature you want. Then "Start".

Oven comes on for 5 min then shuts down everything even the keyboard

Same problem here on JKP15WOW1WW. The cycle starts like this:
1) Open circuit Breaker
2) Open oven panel and push ribbon connector to ERC. Replace planel.
3) Close circuit breaker
4) Run to oven, notice clock flashing some time but not 12:00 and start Bake. Bake button beeps and starts bake coil.
5) Within 5 minutes hear a beep and all buttons on panel are unresponsive. Bake continues. if oven light is on it continues to glow. Only button that responds with a beep (and not to clear bake or oven light) is Clear botton.

Whirlpool oven issue

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
