Contact the manufactureer and order new knobs or ask for replacements as it should still be under warranty.

No power and it only 5 months old

I would phone the supplier and request an under warranty repair as it is not 12 months old yet.

I have an older kitchenaid 30-inch cooktop - Model number KGCS100S. I want to replace it and need to know the size of the existing cut-out. I can't get a measurement without a lot of extra work and...


Unfortunately, the cooktop you have is no longer in production, and even if i give you the dimensions of the cooktop, the cut - out is not a standard size, some people like to make a more spacious cut - out, where others give it a tight fit.

Best way of knowing is to unscrew the screws and lift out the top and measure the dimensions yourself.

I really hope this can be of help, please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards

Same problem - The handle broke off when opening. Microwave less than 6 months old. Cheap plastic handle and cheap plastic clips hold it together.

Since it's less than six months old, it will be under warranty.

You can contact the manufacturer for free repair.

Just look up their contact information in your owner's manual.

Do you know in what year the Maytag washer, model LAT8014AAE was made

The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL number on the appliance. The following link explains:

With Maytag, the last two letters in the serial number is the manufacture date code. The first letter is the YEAR, the second letter indicates the MONTH. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
