    Most common repairs needed to fix a LG range

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    An inoperative electronic control board can lead to various failures in a range, including a lack of power or heating in the oven or surface element, or prevent the oven from turning off. This is because the board serves as the brain of the range, controlling crucial operations such as regulating oven temperatures, running cooling fans, and controlling cooking time. If the electronic control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between many different components. A failing board may cause a chattering or clicking noise from the range and may emit a burning odor. Due to the potential impact on multiple components, it is advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests on the board to confirm if replacement is necessary.


    Igniter Replacement

    A faulty range igniter can prevent a burner from igniting, resulting in no heat from the bake or broil burner in the oven, or from a surface burner. A failed igniter could also cause difficulty in lighting the burner, requiring multiple attempts to achieve ignition. The igniter may emit a clicking sound without successfully lighting the gas, indicating a malfunction. In some cases, the igniter may not produce any visible spark at all. An igniter failure can lead to delayed ignition, causing a noticeable delay between turning the knob and the burner lighting.

    Surface Element Switch Replacement

    A bad surface element switch may make turning the surface element on or off difficult, or a damaged switch shaft may feel loose or wobbly. The malfunctioning switch could cause uneven heating or prevent the element from reaching the desired temperature. In some cases, the surface element may not turn on at all, or it may continue to heat even after the control is turned off, posing a safety risk. If you suspect the switch on your range is bad, have a Sears Home Services professional inspect the switch for you.

    What to expect when you experience an LG range not working issue

    How is the not working problem fixed?

    Correcting most not working problems usually involves replacing the electronic control board, igniter or surface element switch. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.

    Sears Home Services recommendations for a range that is not working

    When the range is not working it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of range failures.

    What to look out for with a range not working diagnosis

    Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your range problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
