Yes, replace the knob and it should work unless the knob was damaged by something that also damaged the switch.

Need control knob timer dryer doesn't shut off

If you are stating that the timer knob never moves to the off position, then the timer is probably bad and needs replaced. If you can't turn the timer because the knob feels too loose then possibly the knob is just broken. Timer knobs usually just pull straight off so you can look at the back side and see if the plastic around the shaft hole is cracked.

The know on the side of the machine that rotates the needle when turned by hand is tight, hard to turn. What do I need to do to fix it or adjust it so that it turns without having to force it to turn?

I do have a couple of suggestions but would feel better if you'd first e-search Sharpe's site for your model's "Service manual"-a manual for simple repairs and how your machine disassembles and runs. With it you'd be a step ahead on a lot of your machine's maintenance and trouble issues!Don't give up too easily on your search.Sharpe likely sold the right to make your exact machine to other machine makers. These companies may have a Service Manual if Sharpe doesn't. You may be able to save and print from a PDF file. I'm not "up" on the newer machines so am assuming you have a belt drive machine: a rubber-like belt that is turned by the hand knob as well as the motor.What your describing is likely a too tight screw that secures the knob to the belt revolutions' workings (especially if the knob has been removed before). If your Sharpe knob pulls (toward your hand) to stop the needle for bobbin winding and THAT's too tight, then you have another screw in the knob to slightly loosen! In both cases, carefully disassemble the knob and look for the problem screw(s). Should the machine smell like burning rubber or make a screeching sound at high speed you'll need to change the belt and adjust it-probably with a professional.Old belts do get stiff, cracked and sometimes ragged so a new belt can make the motor run quieter and smoother.Hope this helps you especially, maybe others as well.

I have a Viking 6370 sewing machine. I can not get the stitch selector to turn to select a new stitch. Actually the knob will turn but the outer dial doesnot turn and the stitch does not change. It sews...


look at the cam gear. This is the unit that the cam connects to. It could have a crack or be split completely. If there is a crack the cam stack will have to be replaced. The parts are hard to get and a good technician is needed.

I bought a frigidaire dryer knob to replace the broken one. But how do I get the knob on without hammering it and cracking the knob and stem? the stem on my frigidaire dryer is broken - i have the knob...

You will want to take out the screws on the back of the dryer behind the control panel. Once off you will see all the wires and such connecting to the timer and the knobs. Make sure you disconnect the power first before digging in in there. When you find the spot that your knob goes take that control part off and place your knob in. Once you have the back off you will see how it goes on. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me and please let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and glad I could help.

Screen has an "LCD" leak apparently.

The LCD is not cracked, however either the ribbon cable attaching it to the mainboard or the mainboard itself is cracked or the phone has a bad processor.
If the phone is under warranty, get it replaced.
If it is not, you may be able to open it (depending on what kind of tools you have).
Check all cables and boards for damage, seat all connectors firmly, and re-assemble.  
If it is a smart phone, you can get replacement parts if needed.  If it is not, your parts options are limited.

I've had the same problem. I checked out the Kitchen Aid website, called the toll-free number listed on the site (800-541-6390), and talked to a very pleasant and helpful customer service representative. She said she would be sending a free replacement knob that would arrive in 7 to 10 days. It may sound ominous, but if ya can't fix ya, ya gotta replaceya!
