Re: Control Knobs

Some times if you have taken them off lately there are little metel clips inside the knobs that will stick to the knob shaft pull them off the shaft and stick them back in the knobs if the knobs arent cracked that should tighten them up

Why surface control knobs become hot when oven is on

If its an older model gas stove, then its normal. I have an older gas stove and the knobs get a little hot when the oven is on. Nothing that prevents me from using it, but enough to notice they are warm.

If its a newer stove, you should contact the manufacturer. Without knowing more info, I can only give a general answer.

If you're renting in an apartment then talk to the management or maintenance. If you're leasing the stove, call the company its being leased from.

GE Range flashing locked after boil over

GE Electric range with front controls. I had a pot boil over and spill over the front of the range, some water got on the membrane key panel. But I’m assuming some went behind the panel on to the control board. The LOCKED button started to flash randomly and the electric door latch was engaging and disengaging also randomly. Unplugging the unit and looking for any type of reset button did not help. The control board which is mounted behind the membrane panel got wet and was causing a short. Luckily it survived. I fixed it by removing the four stove knobs, four retaining plastic nuts that are mounted behind the knobs, and then the four (2 and 2 outer most) 1/4” bolts that hold the main panel on. I dried out the electric front door switch and the electric panel with hairdryer for 10 minutes. Plugged it back in and its all fixed. . No so good design to allow this to happen so easily so as I assembled it back together I put silicone around the membrane panel in hopes of preventing this from reoccurring.

Cant get oven to work

hi Step 1: Take out the screws that hold the panels, and pull off the control knobs. On the control panel the knobs are friction-fit; pull them straight off. Some knobs may have setscrews in the base of the knobs; back out these screws using a screwdriver or Allen wrench and pull off the knobs.

Step 2: Remove the back service panel on the control panel by backing out a series of screws around the edge of the panel. To remove the front panel, take off the control knobs and remove a series of mounting screws that hold the decorative panel to the frame. These screws may be hidden by molding or trim; pry off the molding or trim with a screwdriver, or take out several screws.

Step 3: To gain access to the burner assemblies, remove the burner grates and then the top of the range. The entire range top should either lift up and off the range or open up and back on hinges. The oven door can usually be removed by pulling it straight up off the hinges on both sides of the door. Some hinges have a latch that must be unlocked before the door can be removed.

Step 4: If the surface light of the range burns out, remove retaining screws and panels as necessary to gain access to the bulb. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same type and wattage; check the ends of the old bulb for this information. Then replace any retaining panels.

Step 5: If the oven light burns out, unscrew it and remove it from the oven. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same wattage, made for oven use.

Remove panel behind ignitor knobs

I found the solution at Apparently the knobs are VERY difficult to remove and must be pried off using two screw drivers on either side of the knob and working back and forth. I sprayed them with WD40 before replacing them.

After getting past this poor design issue, the remainder of the repair was very simple, as I expected it would be.

Child lock on burner knobs?

Unfortunately if they are knobs they may still be "live" when the panel is locked. To be sure try one of the burners when the panel is locked to see if it comes on. If they do come on, you can get knob covers at most hardware stores that work well.

Jenair oven valve knob

In less than 6 years of normal use, 4 burner control knobs on my Jenn-Air free standing gas range, Model JGR8875QDS, have either broken or melted.
If you want to continue to buy Jenn Air knobs, no problem - several suppliers will be glad to provide them for  $10-15, each (USD). Whirlpool's part number for the factory Jenn Air knobs is 74009148, and you can get them from (#1035396), or (#PS2086597).

If, however, you want to try a different set of knobs, hoping to find some that are less prone to break or melt, then it gets a lot more complicated.

Jenn Air/Whirlpool will be no help; they will tell you the only knob that will work is the Jenn Air OEM knob. Parts suppliers won't help you either - no specifications or interchangeability data exists - and they are unable or unwilling to take measurements.

I can tell you the following 3 knobs will work on your Jenn Air range, model JGR8875QDS. By "work" I mean they will fit your burner controls, operate the burners just like the factory knobs, and the markings on the knobs for "Off" "Lite" and "Hi" will be in the correct positions, similar to the factory knobs. (Exception: The last knob listed has markings somewhat different than the Jenn Air knobs.)

The following knobs do NOT look like your factory knobs - all three are made from black plastic rather than the (fake) silver metal look of the (plastic) OEM knobs. What I cannot tell you is if the following knobs will be more durable than the factory knobs - but then it's hard to imagine how they could be much worse.

-------- Burner control knobs known to work on the Jenn Air JGR8875QDS gas range --------

1. Whirlpool part number 74008850, made for some Amana gas ranges, will fit the Jenn Air. calls it part #1035119, and calls Item #PS2086316; it sells for $6-7 (USD). You can see a photo by entering the appropriate part number in the search box of either of the two websites mentioned above. The Amana knob is about a quarter-inch larger in diameter than the OEM knobs, but that does not cause any problems. Of the several knobs I tried this is the only one that tells me what it's made from - "PBT" - or polybutylene terephtalate, a thermoplastic which has a melting point of 430 degrees F and a maximum utilization temperature of 330 F.

2. Whirlpool part number 74009094, made for some Maytag gas ranges will also fit the Jenn Air. calls it #1035342, and calls it #PS2086544. It sells for about $9 on both sites. You can see it here:
Like the Amana knob, the Maytag knob is about a quarter-inch larger than the OEM Jenn Air knob.

3. A third knob worth considering is available from for $7 each. The front of the knob looks much like their OEM Replica Burner Knob 1104-B (but don't order #1104-B - it won't fit). The knob that will fit the Jenn Air is AmericanStoveParts #1214-025-B. You will have to order it by phone or email because it is not shown on their website. (As of October 2009, none of the knobs shown on will fit the Jenn Air.) 

Notice the markings on the 1214-025-B are not quite like the Jenn Air markings, with the "HI" and the "LITE" positions being reversed. Also, the 1214-025-B knob I received did not have the white dot at the "OFF" position nor the white ring around the periphery as shown in the photo of the 1104B knob. The total diameter of the the 1214-025-B is 2" - the same as the factory Jenn Air knobs.

While I don't think the front of 1214-025-B looks quite as nice as the Amana or Maytag knobs, the back of the knob appears to be much more robust than on the others. The extra plastic MAY make this one more durable.
