How to Fix the Control Knobs in Electric Ranges
The control knobs on an electric range operate the heating elements. You use these knobs to turn the elements off and on and control the temperature setting. Over time, the constant rotation can strip the inside of the knobs where they fit over the shaft. When this happens, you can no longer control the elements. Thankfully, universal replacement knobs are available with multiple adapters, so you can find the perfect fit for your electric range.
