Question about Amana Cooktops

Amana Electric Smoothtop Cooktop heat control knob.

We have the Amana cooktop model #AKT36501. Somehow the heat control knob got pushed down and will not pull back into the correct possition. What is the best way to resolve this problem.

    The problem is the control knob is not being held in where it is supposed to be . It is really loose.

    The whole switch needs to be repaired. There are 4 little prongs on top of the switch that are made of plastic. They break off and then there is nothing to hold the switch in proper place.

Amana gas cooktop clicks when not in use


Take a look at the solutions that have been posted regarding igniters. i suspect a dirty or wet push-down knob. you will see that others have had water/moisture causing problems. drying mights solve it, but it may need a a bit of a clean. keep trying. it must have taken me a couple of hours to solve.

Knob not working and some burners not heating


The switch under that knob is bad.  It's called an infinite switch.  As far as the elements go, first thing to check is for proper voltage (220) to the cooktop.  Let me know what you find.
