To reinforce 5 knobs after replacing 3 knobs earlier using the "simple" replacement of knobs: My 19 year old daughter mixed a 15 minute two part epoxy glue and coated the outside of the plastic knob shaft (first placing a q-tip in the center of the shaft opening to protect from glue entry into knob engagement channel). She then wrapped the wire in a close spiral so each turn touched the previous one (like a spring), leaving the wire ends long enough to twist around knob ears to hold firmly in place during cure of glue. She then coated the outisde of the wire turns with more epoxy to encase the wire and secure wire in place. After curing, she cut the wire ends off so they were flush with knob shaft and installed knobs on burner stems. Hopefully a permanent solution as you shouldn't have to modify replacement parts.
