Went to Lowes today to buy a range. I know they have a very small stock at
the stores. I thought it may take 3 or 4 days for them to get one. I was
told that it may take over 30 days to get a white LG range that is on sale.
Good thing we don't need one, but the wife just wanted a range with a
convection oven .
Did not think to ask the salesman, but is there that much of a delay on
other brands ? This is a small town with not too many options.

Well if it's a really good sale, maybe they are running low. Just
think, there are 10 young Chinese working on your range right now. I'm
told they put your Facebook picture over the workplace, to inspire
I hope to never need repair parts. I bought a built in unit for a house I
lived in and then about 10 years ago I bought a range and have not needed
any repair parts. Probably will get a new range if that one fails after 10
or so years.
There are many internet places that seem to have repair parts. I should be
able to get them in less than a week.
The LG had a rating of 4.8 out of 5. It was on sale, the wife wanted that
It would not surprise me if many of the North American brands have many of
the parts made out of the US.

Which brand? Most of the "american" brands are made anywhere BUT in
North America. When I was looking for a washer and drier the only one
available actually made in North America (not including Mexico) was a
european brand - Bosch.
The details ... therein lies the devil.
We're looking for a front-load washer -
Sears was $ 100. cheaper than the local guy -
- local guy was free delivery & old washer removal.
- Sears was $ 70. delivery $ 25. removal ..
Do the math ..
.. and decide which will deliver & connect the washer -
with the least trouble ..
The big-box stores were no better - price or otherwise.
You may do better at a real appliance store. We have one next town over
and they beat Lowes and Home Depot on price and delivery every time.
Most appliance dealers belong to a coop and get good price and fat
Last time I bought a washing]ng machine it was delivered two hours
later. When my freezer broke they gave a a loaner for two days until
they could get the one I wanted. Lowes won't do things like that.
