Old kenmore gas cooktop with griddle

Model # 911.3368219 I would guess it is 15 - 20 years old. 2 or 3 of the knobs will not turn - the others work just fine. Anyone have an idea what could be the problem? Thanks much!

If the knobs will not push down and turn, this indicates the gas valve stem has become contaminated with cooking debris. The only solution to this, would be to replace the gas valves. With the cooktop more than 10ys old, parts may be difficult to find. If you can find parts, they will probably be prohibitively expensive.

Safely remove knobs from 50's Kenmore gas stove


The safest thing to do would be to turn off the power ( un-plug it or turn off the breaker) or the gas or both to the unit. Turning off the power would probably be easier. There should be a gas shut off valve behind it.

My 2 year old sons played "drummer boy" on the knobs of the Viving Designer Series cooktop and now they will not turn. 2 of the 4 popped back and work but the other 2 did not. Tried turning them but no...


they must be bent....look around the knob make sure you have an equal amount of space betwween knob and stove...if not, try to carefully bend it until the knob straightens up....

Flames too high Jenn-air CCG2423


Definitely cut your loses and get a cooktop with a warranty. That unit sat on the back shelf for a reason.......it didn't work properly.

Also, but a cook top that is compatible with the safety knobs they sell as child guards at places like lowes and home depot.

here is a link to show you how the child proof knobs work

I have a viking cooktop with 4 burners and a center griddle. The griddle will not hold heat. It fires up then goes out.


This can be cause dby one of 2 problems.

When you turn the control to turn the Griddle on, does it come immediately or do you have to turn it a long way before it comes on?
.
If it turns on immediatly then it is more than likely the Ignitor

If you have to turn it a long way you have a defective Thermostat

Old Thermador cooktop continues to spark even after turned off


sounds like you have a bad switch. maybe on the large burner.. some of those switches can be replaced without the whole harness.

Both burners turn on when only one is needed


I just had the same problem- when I replaced the whole cartridge.
I repalced the infinite switch- do the one that gets the hottest- or do both.
It is easy to do- just write down the wiring diagram - make sure all power is off- cost of new switch was about $37.00
This solved the problem- however make sure to check the sizng on the new switch shaft as my old knob would not fit properly on the shaft of the new switch.
good luck
