Question about Hardware & Accessories
I removed both glass knobs and faceplate from the door. When I tried to unscrew the threaded stem from the door, the entire mechanism moved and turned when I turned the stem. I bought new knobs and stems but cannot remove the old stem because it turns with the mechanism. Any help on how to remove the old stem?
You may have to apply Liquid Wrench or equivalent to free up the spindle. Tap the end of the spindle gently with a hammer to break the rust or corrosion loose. You will then have to prevent the mechanism from turning as you work the old spindle free. Be careful to avoid damaging the lock mechanism in such a way that installation of the new spindle will be difficult

SOURCE: Stuck Door Knob with No Access!
I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe
