Why dko all 4 hobs show L?


Gas or electric? What caused the change? My guess is the knobs were removed for cleaning and not reinstalled properly. There is a flat on the valve stem that must match the flat on the Knob when installed.

Simpson EZISET cooktop control knob does not turn


Take some electronics contact cleaner, CRC is best, and spray the knob. It has grease inside that is preventing the spring from popping it up so it turns. You'll need to get a new knob eventually and please don't install it yourself unless you are well versed in working with gas.

All the knobs have cracked stems. I need replacement parts.


My knobs did the same _ if you want to avoid expensive replacements (mine were going to be $125) get some small good quality zap straps and tighten 2-3 around the stem. For added strength you could add some apoxy but i found it was not necessary. Good Luck!

Good advise on removing the knob. My problem is that the Valve stem has excessive play in it. How do I replace valve stem.


Hi, the valve stem on a gas stove is on a manifold assembly under the top. If I am correct in remembering, the burner valve unscrews to replace them. If so, take it with you along with all of the numbers,M#, S #, and so on. Best of Luck,

Have Jenn-Air 36" gas cooktop w. 5 burners, black. Mdl JGC8536ADB. Plastic knobs keep splitting, even if we remember to push down before turning. Have replaced two sets and now we're down to two working...




Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode (the small metal piece that the spark comes off from) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes and not a tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse. Example of a burner. The next thing to check for are the ignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a bad spark module, replace it.
The switches or the range control knobs may have got wet and are completing the circuit to the spark module thus causing it to continuously click or fire off sparks continuously. Use your hair/blow dryer and blow some hot air around the spark module area.

This is a typical spark module wire diagram--



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

3 of 4 knobs do not compress to turn on gas


You must replace those controls. Cleaning or loosening them up would be temporary at best and the next time they stick it could be in the open position. Safety first...Eric

Old kenmore gas cooktop with griddle


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.

Clicking noise on gas oven


when you were cleaning the cooktop did you remove the knobs and spray ,did any liquid fall were the knobs was taken out from. if yes you wet the burner switches it should dry in a day or so depending on what you used to clean it with to speed up the process remove the knobs unplug cooktop if possible and wipe the switch area if this doesnt help take a blow dryer and dry them that way or try good old fashion wd40 it repels water ,spray each one till yu find the culprit it will stop right away.
