The Importance of Service

Thirty years ago, I was the service manager at Yale and had to deliver bad news about a stove not being repaired before a holiday.

Pro Tip: Self-clean your oven six weeks (about one and a half months) before a holiday. In case of problems, you will have them for the holidays.

I wasn't the most popular guy in the state.

Yale now has 35 service technicians on the road to rectify service problems and logged just under 40,000 service calls last year.

So, buying more reliable brands is the best way to have fewer of these situations.

As a side note, it also is an excellent idea because current supply chain issues affect parts more than appliances.

For gas ranges, I finally have some good news. They are all reliable, way below the average appliance service rate of 9.7%.

The Most Reliable Gas Ranges for 2023

The following service rates are based on at least 100 ranges sold and a total sample of over 1300.

Gas Range Reliability from January 2022 to December 2022

  Service Rate
LG 4.1%
Café Appliances 8.9%
GE Profile 9.8%
Beko Appliance 13.6%
Bosch Appliances 14.7%
Grand Total 8.5%

Gas ranges are known for their reliability, with an average service rate of only 8.5%, lower than the 9.7% average for all appliances.

While gas burners and ovens have not changed significantly, they have become hotter with more output. However, reliability has seen some changes from last year.

Adding more features to a range increases the need for service, but brands like GE Profile and LG are better considerations for a range with more features.

Even a Café Appliance range with six burners, two ovens, and a service rate of less than 9% is worth considering.

Overall, almost every brand is worth considering due to the basic nature of the technology used.

LG - 4.1%

LG Electronics takes the top spot for gas ranges, with a service rate of only 4.1%. This is an impressive feat, especially considering that LG does not rank as highly for induction ranges. 

However, it is worth noting that LG manufactures more components for their gas ranges than any other manufacturer, which likely contributes to their reliability.

Additionally, LG improved their reliability from the previous year, making them the only brand to do so. 

Café Appliances - 8.9%

Café Appliances is a brand that consistently impresses with its innovative designs and features, and their gas ranges are no exception. 

Despite offering double ovens, griddle burners, and many options, Café Appliances still maintains a service rate of less than 9%.

This is a testament to the brand's commitment to quality and reliability. Of course, more features often mean more service, but Café Appliances seems to have struck the perfect balance between functionality and dependability. 

GE Profile - 9.8%

GE Profile is another upscale brand within the GE umbrella. Once again, we only sell GE Profile. This is because we have found that GE Profile ranges offer the perfect balance of reliability, performance, and features.

They are also backed by excellent customer service, which is crucial when it comes to appliances.

With GE Profile, you can expect high-quality burners that offer precise temperature control, spacious ovens with convection capabilities, and elegant designs that will complement any kitchen décor. 

How We Calculate Gas Range Reliability

At Yale Appliance, we take service seriously, with over 120,000 service calls in less than three years.

Our team of 35 service technicians handles 8-10 service calls daily, plus an additional 110 on Saturdays.

We calculate gas range reliability by dividing the number of products serviced by the number sold over a 12 month period.

For this article, we analyzed the number of gas ranges sold and serviced from January 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022, to determine the most reliable gas range brands for 2023.

Which Gas Range Should You Buy?

At Yale, we may be known for our high-end products, but our favorite brands are the ones that don't break down.

Regarding gas ranges, we recommend looking into LG and GE for their reliable performance and added features such as convection and high-output burners.

Plus, brands like LG, Café Appliances, and GE Profile offer nationwide service, which is a major plus if your local store doesn't provide it.

Consider service availability in your area, as service rates increase after a year of use.
