Just so, how do you fix a stuck gas stove knob?

Try pulling the plastic knob off. There should be a metal peg sticking out (the plastic knob fits over it) then try squirting some WD-40 on it and gently grab the metal peg with some pliers and slowly turn it. Don't force it too much as it may break. When it loosens up, replace the peg.

Furthermore, why will my oven not turn off? If the oven continues to heat after it is turned off, the control board is likely defective. If the control board is defective, replace it. Sometimes, if the heating element burns out, it can short out to the inside of the oven. If the heating element has shorted out, the oven will not turn off.

Keeping this in view, how do you turn off a broken oven knob?

If just the knob is broken, you can try to use pliers to turn the stem on the oven control knob. If you are not able to shut off the oven in this manner, I recommend shutting off the gas supply to the oven.

What causes low flame on gas stove?

Weak Burner Flame Low-quality flames could also be caused by too little gas or too little air getting to the burner. Adjust the air shutter to see if the problem is air, but call for a pro if you suspect the problem is not enough gas.

First, pull the knobs off and allow them to soak in a bowl of white vinegar. (If you can't remove the knobs, spray them thoroughly with the solution.) Then, spray the oven with the vinegar and leave if for 30 seconds. Next, wipe down the entire surface with a cloth.
