No tools are required to complete this repair, simply pull on the knob until it pops off, and reverse the process to reinstall. This knob accepts a D-shaped shaft. It is sold individually.

I simply remove the broken knob just like I do when cleaning. To place the new knob, I matched the flat part of knob opening with the flat part of the shaft, returning to off position.
This wasn't really a repair, I just replaced a stove top knob. I usually keep a few spares on hand because although they look like they are made of medal they are really made of plastic. The best thing about your service was price and speed of delivery. My local supplier would have had to back order, and he would have charged me more than twice as much for each knob. Thanks
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.
If you remove knob and sleeve remains, you have to use needle nose pliers to remove. Pull straight up, don't wiggle back-and-forth too much. If you put too much pressure on glass-top, it can crack. Prying is DANGEROUS on glass-top stoves.
Ordered new knobs from part select ,they arrived very quickly. I took off the metal clips that where in the old knobs.(these clips where still on the metal post because the broke away from the plastic knobs.) Then I just pushed on the knobs nothing to it.
put new knob on! Ordering process and delivery were flawless--liottle expensive but saved me running around town!
The broken knob had previously been removed. I grasped the replacement knob between my thumb and forefinger, held the knob in a vertical position and pressed it down onto the selector shaft. The quality control supervisor (otherwise known as "the wife") examined the project and issued a certificate of acceptance. And then cooked dinner.
Ordered new knobs & now all burners work. Easy installation.
Simple repair to replace stripped out knob. More importantly we ordered the part over Christmas and it arrived within 2 or 3 days
I love my father in law, but he needs to learn to push the knobs of our electric stovetop down before he turns them. We were down to our last knob, which we moved from burner to burner, after he broke a total of 5. I had spent almost $18 a knob from my local dealer, and found your place for $5 less! $5 isn't much, until you multiply it by 3 (and I doubled up because he is coming for Thanksgiving, so 6!). Thanks!
I actually did it manually. It was fast and easy.
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!!
I took the old knob off, got needle nose pliers to get the small steel sleeve off the post, and put the new knob on. The knob had a number on the underside, but it is not the part number. Part Select's picture showed the number, so I knew it was the right part.
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.
