Here is a simple burner knob, which GE seems to have a particularly high opinion of.

I went on a Frigidaire refrigerator in a rental this week. Needs a crisper drawer, 2 crisper drawer fronts, 2 door bars and 4 end caps. The parts alone are just shy of $300.

LG seems to be pretty reasonable on parts. Only a FEW exceptions. :D

Looks like they have gone down in price, only $139.40  :rofl:
With a savings like that I can see why they are out of stock now, lol...

Ratio of cost/products used on the GE and LG are very similar IMO. The ge is a molded plastic part ONLY where as the LG is put together in pieces with stainless screws and a premium finish. Both none the less still high...
