Why can't I change my radio volume control


Double check the knob. If it does not match the "post or stem" on the radio itself, the knob does not go down far enough to engage the post, or is "stripped" OR see if you can turn the stem with pliers. If still can't turn with pliers, try WD-40 or equivelent on the stem, let soak overnight. then try.

Climate control knob is backwards


Hi! Those knobs and stems are indexed. Most likely the knob is cracked and will go on in any position. Check knob/stem for a small metal D shaped sleeve that may have come off or stuck on the stem. Remove that and then buy a new knob.They can be purchased at most auto parts.They are in-expensive. Line up the D shape of the stem with the knob and push it on.

Door knob stem stuck


You may have to apply Liquid Wrench or equivalent to free up the spindle. Tap the end of the spindle gently with a hammer to break the rust or corrosion loose. You will then have to prevent the mechanism from turning as you work the old spindle free. Be careful to avoid damaging the lock mechanism in such a way that installation of the new spindle will be difficult

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.

I need to find out where i can find a replacement knob for my pioneer premier deh-680mp cd player, without it im afraid my kids will break off the stem. can i help me please?? Sondra Buneta


well sondra, at this point im tempted to just give you mine after car toys and pioneer told me im a liar basically! but you should be able to take the faceplate into any major auto parts store like shucks - o'reillys and most of them have a "help" section where the have racks with all kinds of misc. universal thinga-mabobers, a new knob doesnt have to look exactly like the old one, just make sure its able to pivot still, stays on and has the same "half-moon" notch - K :-)

The temperature control does not change when the fan is turned up. if i want to change the temperature from hot to cold, i have to turn down the fan, listen for the switch in the dash and then turn the...


I can tell you about my experience on my 1999 F150. I do not believe it is the blower control switch because mine went out and only affected the fan speed. On my truck, in an incident like yours, I could not get a good response from the temperature switch.

I would turn the control and it would hit a stop on both ends, but the temperature would not change to match the switch. What I found is the stem of the temperature control did not turn because the knob cracked behind the switch. There is a half-moon shaped metal clip inside the plastic temperature knob. The clip can spin when the knob is cracked and nothing moves right.

Because the plastic knob has molded stops under the knob, from the drivers point of view, the knob was turning lock to lock. In reality, the stem was not turning. Try taking the knob off and turning the stem with pliers wrapped in cloth to protect the plastic. Then see if the temperature changes.

How can I remove the timer knob from a Frigidaire Washer


Knob PN 131592001 Just looking at replacements it appears to just push on. If pulling on it does not get it off then rotate it CCW in an attempt to unscrew it. Just be VERY careful that the timer stem does not rotate if you turn the knob CCW or you will be buying a new timer. Open the top and hold the stem if you have too. (easier said than done) Worst case... if you have a bad knob and have a replacement knob in hand... break the defective knob. If your changing the timer look at the stem on the new timer. If it is threaded on the end the knob unscrews. If it is not threaded it pulls off.

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.

You will want to take out the screws on the back of the dryer behind the control panel. Once off you will see all the wires and such connecting to the timer and the knobs. Make sure you disconnect the power first before digging in in there. When you find the spot that your knob goes take that control part off and place your knob in. Once you have the back off you will see how it goes on. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me and please let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and glad I could help.
