The knobs on my Euro-pro TO240L have split. Where can I get replacement knobs? When I try it sends me to Shark.

To fix split knobs...

Stuff needed:

Good thin super glue.
a few inches of solid wire (around 18 gauge). 3 or so garbage bag ties together to make them stronger may work.
heavy quilting thread (if you can break it by hand its too weak)

Wrap the wire 1 turn around the knob stem at the edge and twist the ends together. Snug it just enough to hold it in place. Have the pliers ready and apply some glue into the cracks. Using the pliers, twist the wire ends until the cracks close.

Starting at the back of the stem wrap the thread tightly around the stem up to the wire and back. Remove the wire and finish wrapping the thread back to the edge. Apply glue to the thread so it soaks in and allow to dry a bit.

Cut the end of the thread at the shaft, add more glue if needed and allow it to set for a few hours. Sand the thread lightly with an emery board or nail file if needed.

Odd that we both have the same problem on the same model and same day..
If it's completely broken off, then you have probably pulled the threads out of the cheap plastic,, there are two screws that hold the handle on, one is easy to find/see, on the inside of the door, upper left corner,, to find the other, you need to remove (gently/carefully) the plastic bezel,, (all of this stuff is on the inside of the door), tap on it to find the plastic part,(bezel) and gently remove it by prying,, "prying" is an ugly word,, but since it snaps in, I'm not sure how else to tell you how to do it,, (Just go slow)
Once the bezel is removed, you can get to the other screw,
Now you have both screws, and know where they are supposed to fit later,,
On the back of the handle, the part that goes against the door, there are "studs" (plastic posts about 1/2 inch long and about the size of a pencil),, look closely into hole in the mounting stud, and you will probably see where the plastic threads have pulled out,, If thats the case,, the fun starts,,,

Go to lowes, or Home depot, and buy the smallest bottle of "Loctite" brand epoxy you can find,,
Look closely and the box will say something like,, "SETS IN 5 MIN.", or so,, get the LONGEST setting epoxy that they have,,

Now your back home and drinking a cold beer,, and ready for fun,, ---,Spray the screws with "non-stick" cooking spray, and set aside, (but handy)
Next,, match the handle back up to the door,, and identify which is the top,, mark it,, (masking tape and magic marker),,
I know it sounds silly, but you don't want to be fumbling around with it, while the epoxy runs back out of the holes and all over everything,, set the handle aside, but handy,,

Follow the instructions on the box, to mix the epoxy,, (work quickly)
Now,, using a toothpick or something similar,(disposable) dribble the mixed epoxy into the holes, (where the screws need to go), you don't need to fill them up, but a good 5 drops or so at least,,, WORK QUICK,,, remember to put it in both holes,,

Get ready to mate it back to the door, handle in one hand, a screw in the other,,
Top on top,, and from the front,,put the studs into the two holes
and as quick as you can, insert the screws,, you probably won't need to screw them in, (Threads are stripped out), but you may,, if so, just barely tighten them, just enough to "seat them, and the handle to the door,, It would be best to tape the handle in place until the epoxy sets,,
Check for ozzing,, dribbles, and drops,, and wipe it up now,, or it will be there forever,,
Sit back, put feet up, drink the rest of the beer, and watch epoxy dry,,, (Wait an hour to be safe) Besides, it gives ya more time to drink some more beer,,
Thats my best guess on how to re-attach the handle,, But I'm waiting until tomorrow to do it,, (out of beer)
Best of luck, Ted

Broken door handle

bogus...use a Torx driver to remove the door screws...careful of the glass. Replace the handle and reassemble. You may want to take digital pictures along the way. Parts available from ge or other online parts guys.
