Sorry to hear about that!
I am partial to Kitchenaid which is owned by Whirlpool I have had my Kitchenaid range for 12 years, not a lick of trouble (knock on wood)
A good basic not so fancy range are the Frigidaire free-standing ranges... Ge is similar however Ge parts tend to be more expensive. I tend to steer clear of LG, Samsung, Thor appliances because many times replacement parts are not readily available and the cost of their parts can be 2x-3x higher than a US company suck as Whirlpool, etc..
Hope this helps!
