Burner knob wont turn

Hi I have an Amana downdraft cooktop. Puchased about 4 years ago. The burner worked fine, but after last use, the knob won't turn. Do I call an electrician or appliance repair person? Any chance of fixing myself?
Thanks

No gas on viking professional. ignitor works downdraft does not


There are solenoids that turn the gas on to a burner. If they're bad it won't supply gas to the burner. There is also a mother board on that model that could also be the problem. When it comes to this brand it's difficult to diagnose without being there. If the downdraft is not working then I would guess that the mother board could be the problem...sorry I couldn't help more.

I have a Chef 4 burner gas cooktop probably at least 10 years old. I need to replace 3 burner knobs. One works fine. Where can I find replacements? I live near Perth, Western Australia.


In the US, there is a parts distributor with locations all over the country. Their number is 1-800-482-6022. They have four of your burner knobs (part number 74001253) in stock in the Fresno, California warehouse. The cost per knob is $9.27 US. I can't say how much the shipping would be, but they use UPS and FED EX.
Good luck....and good day.

Burner light does not go off on Amana AKT3040


Sounds like a short in that particular burner circuit. Usually when the light stays on even after cool down the heat sensor is bad. This is inside the burner. If your getting white smoke the burner switch could also be shorted out.
