Gas won't stay on when I release knob


The old stoves.........so easy to work on and gain access to all the parts, etc. On the newer stoves, you'll have to get to where the knob goes onto the gas stem, and behind it----where the stem connects to the actual gas line inside the stove.. If you can do that, fine. Then, clean the stem, especially the nozzle. Check to see if it works before putting everything back together. If that doesn't solve it, you'll have to take the nozzle off and inspect the gas line that connects to the nozzle. Clear any gunk away, and do the same with the interior of the nozzle.........then reconnect, and test. If that doesn't solve the problem, you'll have to call a tech to come out.

How do I fix the broken oven knob on my GE XL44 oven?


First you need to check the value body (around the value stem) for leaks.. you can use soapy water, your nose for smell...if you suspect a gas leak... turn the gas off to the appliance (located behind the stove) and call your gas supplier or a service tech...
You can use a thin pair of needle nose plyers to hold the stem.. or an easier way is to cut a playing card in half, poke a hole in the middle of it so it will slide over the stem... cut a line for the edge of the card to the hole so you'll be able to pull the card out from under the installed knob...

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

The knob on my stove top burner wont turn


Hello- If it is a gas range it sounds like the valve is stuck, they can get gummed-up and corroded over time. If you are willing to have a repair person out they should be able to take it apart and free-up the valve stem without replacing the valve itself. I would not use that burner, or try to force it ON because if the valve stem breaks you could get a gas leak, if it is gas. If the range is electric you will need to have a new switch installed. When you call for service tell them the model number of the range so they can have the correct switch on hand. Hope this helps, best regards.

Unfortunately you can't remove or replace these buttons, no parts seem to be available anymore. Keep a match stick handy to stick in the hole and press the leftover bit.

Good advise on removing the knob. My problem is that the Valve stem has excessive play in it. How do I replace valve stem.


Hi, the valve stem on a gas stove is on a manifold assembly under the top. If I am correct in remembering, the burner valve unscrews to replace them. If so, take it with you along with all of the numbers,M#, S #, and so on. Best of Luck,

3 of 4 knobs do not compress to turn on gas


You must replace those controls. Cleaning or loosening them up would be temporary at best and the next time they stick it could be in the open position. Safety first...Eric

Can't Remove Broken Electric Stove Burner Knob


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.
