Why is my oven knob not turning?

Oven knob won’t turn

Nothing is more frustrating than when your oven knob won’t turn and you have food to cook! However, the good news is that this problem is generally easy to fix!

If your oven knob is not turning, the problem is likely with the peg shaft or the knob cap. To begin fixing the issue, you need to take the knob handle off. To get the knob off, gently pull it off with your hand or ease it off with a butter knife.

Now that the knob is off, you can take a look at the peg shaft. When you are inspecting and fixing issues, always make sure to be careful, as if done incorrectly you can cause additional problems to your oven.

To inspect the peg shaft, you will notice a peg protruding from the cooker front. Take a pair of pliers and gently try to turn the peg to change the temperature. If the peg turns and works successfully, the issue is with the knob, which can easily be replaced. If the peg still does not move when you try to turn it, the peg has probably gotten stuck. You can simply add some WD40 to the peg and allow it to soak in. Then, try turning the peg again, if it still does not move, you will need to call a professional to help you fix the issue.
