Question about Kitchen Ranges
Take the knob off and use a small piece of duct tape. this should create some grip for the burner to turn.

Not knowing age - very often older (standing pilot) ranges will have burner valves that become hard to operate. These are usually a tapered core valve that can be greased with a high temperature valve grease.

Spray each of the screws with a little WD40, available at any autoparts store. This will dissolve any rust that may have formed. Leave it over night. Then loosen the screws and the knob will come off.

I had the same problem and searched extensively for a solution. They even have a video from GE on the net telling you how to avoid melting them, which is basically don't open to broil and make sure the seal is good on the oven. Essentially, don't use their oven normally like the rest of the ovens in the world. Finally I went to a few show rooms to look for a knob to substitute for the garbage ones from GE. On one of the new models they have a solid cast stainless knob (with a plastic shaft, I think it is delrin) which looks identical but has a longer shaft. I obtained the PN which is WB03T10262 and ordered one. I trimmed the shaft length to match the length of the defective knob with a hack saw, and had to trim out some mold flashing in the cavity. After a couple of fittings I was finshed and it looks fine. I then ordered 3 more from the Appliance Zone for $15.98 each. GE's price for the same part was $25.25!!
