Knobs won't turn

I can't get the two back knobs to turn on my cook top. I have even removed the knobs and tried pushing down ant turning with plyers but they still won't turn. Is there some kind of safety thing that would cause this.

Ignatior keeps sparking and stop why


i presume the sparking is actuated by when you push down on the knob. there is a switch under there. remove the knob by pulling it and use some small drop of cooking oil on the shaft to free it up. pres and pull till it works freely. this should allow the spring in side to push the knob up easily and turn of the sparking.

Middle section ticking sound with sparking as if trying to ignite even though knobs


Try using a pair of pliers and pushing down as you turn first counter clockwise as if you are turning the gas on then back clockwise till it won't turn anymore. If it's still trying to ignite see if its the oven or make sure that its the burner that's trying to ignite . I''m not a appliance person just a home maker so if it were me and none of those things work turn off the gas to the stove unplug the power to the stove and call the gas company or appliance center. One thing though some of those type of knobs are two parts like they have to be pressed down to turn on the gas. Or the have to be set in a certain position to engage the ignite switch. If you know a little about wiring look at the switch and check the wires. But make sure before you do anything that there is no gas on.!!!

When I push down and turn the knob to "on", the knob pops back up causing the burner to turn off. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thank You


You might need to hold it down for a few seconds if the cook top has automatic flame detection. A bi metal strip (or some other form of thermostat) near the burner will need to heat up before the burner can lock on.

Hello,

Just to be clear, non of the 4 burner controls/knobs will turn ? You are familiar with this unit are you ?

Typically you must push down and turn to activate them.

Let me know if that is not the solution.

Good Luck :)

Burner with intermittent feature won't light once hot; spart OK - - no gas.


mdpaul, sounds to me like 1 of the burner switches for the ignition is sticking. There is a small area where the switches turn to that shuts down the ignition. If the switch has failed from heat or is out of position, this can cause this issue. The switch is designed so when you turn the knob it closes the contact. The switch has to be locked into postion on this model. There is a push fit type retainer that locks this down. Pull the knobs off and turn with a pair of plyers to see if one is moving around. If so then with a deep socket, see if you can tighten the retainer by pushing down on it. Hope this helps.
