Question about Microwave Ovens
To fix split knobs...
Good thin super glue.
a few inches of solid wire (around 18 gauge). 3 or so garbage bag ties together to make them stronger may work.
heavy quilting thread (if you can break it by hand its too weak)
Wrap the wire 1 turn around the knob stem at the edge and twist the ends together. Snug it just enough to hold it in place. Have the pliers ready and apply some glue into the cracks. Using the pliers, twist the wire ends until the cracks close.
Starting at the back of the stem wrap the thread tightly around the stem up to the wire and back. Remove the wire and finish wrapping the thread back to the edge. Apply glue to the thread so it soaks in and allow to dry a bit.
Cut the end of the thread at the shaft, add more glue if needed and allow it to set for a few hours. Sand the thread lightly with an emery board or nail file if needed.
