Question Looking for Force 10 Stove Knob Built in 1999

One of the knobs on our small range has broken and the metal part inside is gone. This metal part inside the knob is what allows us to light the burner and keep it burning. Without this metal piece, we can light the burner but it goes out after releasing the knob.
Force 10 sent us a "newer knob" that was supposed to adapt but it doesn't fit on the stem.
If anyone knows where I might find one or more of these, please contact me by email.
Thanks,
Sally

Re: looking for Force 10 stove knob built in 1999

If you are talking about the little metal spring-like piece that fits on the flat of the inside of the knob and keeps the knob on the valve stem it has nothing to do with the flame staying on. All it does is stop the knob from turning on the stem. A little piece of cardboard or toothpick will keep the knob on. I lost a knob and just used the stem, a bit hard to grip but worked ok until I got a replacement, not Force10 but off a barbeque.

All the burners should work even if the knobs are off. If yours won't stay on you have another problem.

Re: looking for Force 10 stove knob built in 1999

we had a similar problem while in usa - we went to every small hardware store we could find as well as antique stores looking for something similar -- surprisingly we found a lot of close matches but found an exact match in a small family hardware store in brunswick ga i think --
don't even try the big chains they are kinda worthless for things like this -

just our opinion

You're talking about a spring. There was a spring in the new knob from Force 10. I removed that along with the outer ring(as instructed by Force 10). It didn't fit on the stem anyway.
Our knob doen't have a spring. The small metal part is inside of the tube that fits onto the stem.
Thanks for your reply though.
