LDG3036ST LG Gas Range Features

The stainless steel color and wrap of its doors gives it an eye-catching and beautiful appearance. The knobs are nickel plated for added durability and easy handling.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does this LG gas stove have an infra-red broiler?
Unfortunately, this gas range does not feature an infra-red broiler. If it did, we imagine that the price would increase significantly.
Can I fit a large roasting pan for turkey in the LG LDG3036ST?
The capacity of the lower oven allows you to place a roaster pan of about 16 × 13 × 5 inches.
Does the self-cleaning feature, clean as good as LG claims?
This oven cleans itself just about as good as any other oven. The real difficulty comes when you leave the cleaning for long periods of time. It’s best to take care of any spills immediately when safe to do so.
Is there a gas smell when using this oven?
When starting the range, a small amount of gas does not burn off because it has already risen up past the point of being ignited. This is nothing to worry about and is very common with gas ranges. If you notice a gas smell after you’ve been cooking for a while, then you may have a leak which will require a professional repair person immediately.
Do both ovens of LG LDG3036ST come with a broil feature?
No, the feature is not incorporated in both ovens. The broil feature is integrated in the upper oven only. The lower oven has a 'convection roast’ feature.
Is this gas range ready for a liquid propane setup?
If you want to use LP, then it requires the installation of a LP conversion kit that does not come with the oven. It must be purchased separately.
Do both ovens cook at the same temperature or can each be different?
Both ovens are independent and therefore allow you to set any preferred temperature that you want for each of them without causing any hindrance.
The LG LDG3036ST offers impressive versatility and flexibility. Having dual ovens is a bakers dream! You can bake cookies and cake at the same time. Or a pot roast in one, with desert in another.
Gas burners make for responsive cooking. If this your first gas range, take it easy on the temperature because it gets hot a lot faster compared to an electric stove (Gas Range vs Electric Stove).
The self-cleaning features are a nice touch, especially for those of us who dread spraying and getting an arm workout trying to get the nasty bits out.
LG is a reputable brand name and is known for quality kitchen appliances. In the worst case, they offer a warranty to cover manufacturer defects and other potential issues during that time.
