Our cooktop is about 9 years old. Great appliance, but poor engineering/design choice to have aluminum knobs with plastic knob shafts, that almost every time the burner gets turned on, the plastic shaft gets stressed and they crack, rendering them useless over time. I replaced all five (5), for about $80 delivered, since I got tired of repairing them. I did see a very helpful post from a guy in Arizona (thanks if you're reading this) whose daughter glued the shafts inside and out, and then wrapped them in wire. I did the same thing with my spares (I have about 7 now, after replacing one or two over the years), as I took the metal sleeve out of the middle, glued them inside and out, and used small plastic wire ties to close them up tight, then putting the metal insert back inside. After the glue dried, I snipped off the end of the wire tie. It worked great! Thanks, Tom D., from outside Boston, MA.

Removed two star screws from the top of the burner, disconnected the wire going to the Ignitor, removed the old ignitor held in with one phillips screw, installed new ignitor and re-installed the burner assembly. Simple!

To be honest, it was nothing much. Had to reach and remove metal collars that were left behind around the pins, with needle-nose pliers. Put in the new knobs, and we were done.

What really left me impressed was 1) that the rep sent me pictures of the suspected knobs over email so I could identify them easily, and 2) I was expecting to wait for a week but I had the parts the next afternoon!!

2 of the old knob broke from my stove and look over the part from part select.com, it was very easy to find, good price and was delivered in 2 days. The service was outstanding.

Ordered from Sears.com....under impression that we would get 4 knobs for about 20.00, to our surprise we got only one knob for 20 dollars plus shipping.
Your website was wonderful... have three knobs for the same price as one from Sears.
Thank you.

electrode sparked but not enough to lite burner

  • Customer: W E from Camden, NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
Unscrewed burner assembly and removed wire. Unable to remove electrode screw. Striped head of screw. Tried penetrating oil but no luck. Tried to drill and use easy out bit but ruined burner assembly and had to order new burner assembly. When assembly came it had electrode in place but website does not show electrode with assembly except on one burner. With mail and all it took about a week to fix 2 burners. Returned unused electrode for credit. Overall, cheaper then a service call by far.

This was a simple replacement of a burner knob. The website had exactly what I needed, including a photograph so I was sure it was the exact match. Delivered quickly and was perfect.
