    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.

  • kg4tiw Dec 27, 2008

    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?

Be sure you have 230 volts across the red and black wires at the terminal block the power cord attaches to. I suspect you have only one line to the range.

It is simpler to check a portion of the range first. Go to the relay board for the bake and broil elements. Check for incoming voltage between the red and black wires. You should have 230 volts all the time.

Set the oven control to bake at 350 degrees and check between the yellow and black wires that go to the bake element. You should have 230 volts. If you have 0 volts, check between the yellow wire that goes to the bake element and the black wire that goes to the terminal block of the range. If you have 230 volts here, the DLB relay on the relay board is bad. This will prevent bake and broil from working.

We can go through the relay board for the cooktop. I think it is best to eliminate one problem at a time.

TAPPAN gas range model 30-3991-00/03 oven won't work.

the button your holding is the switch that tells the board that the consumer whats to if holding the switch causes that message to work[or oven to heat] and letting go of that button ,then no work .its that button ,but its all part of the board .just that part of its funktion is broken.,if it was lets say your oven ignitor or oven gas safty valve ,the board/oven control[the one with the button]would continue to try after you have selected bake [pushed button]or would give error code.hope that helps you. God bless you , tom

LG LRE30451SW range

The interior oven light in most ovens is a standard 40 watt appliance bulb. Often, to change the bulb, you first need to remove a shield or glass dome. If the bulb isn't burned out, the problem may be with the switch on the oven door frame. If the switch works poorly, intermittently, or not at all, you need to replace it.
