Why Are My Cooker Knobs Worn or Melted

Have you noticed that your cooker knobs are worn or even melted? It’s normal for knobs to wear out over time with frequent use. However, if they have melted, there might be a bigger issue that needs addressing.

Cookers get a lot of use, and each time you cook, the knobs take a turn. Some recipes and cooking styles put more strain on these knobs than others. Over time, they can become dirty and worn out, making it hard to select the right settings on your appliance.

Damaged or broken cooker knobs can be frustrating, but there’s no need to worry! At Repair Aid, we stock hundreds of replacement cooker knobs. Whether you’re looking for genuine knobs or a more affordable alternative, we provide only high-quality options.

Hidden Problem – The Door Seal

One common issue that can cause cooker knobs to heat up and melt is a faulty oven door seal. If the oven door isn’t sealing properly, heat escapes and can overheat the cooktop burner knobs. This could be the root cause of your problem.

While it’s normal for the oven control panel to get warm during extended use (1-2 hours), it should never be too hot to touch. If your control panel or knobs are excessively hot, it could be due to a damaged door seal. These seals, often made of rubber, can deteriorate over time, allowing heat to escape and potentially causing knobs to melt.

If you notice a broken or split seal, it’s crucial to replace it. Reach out to our Customer Support team with the make and model of your appliance, and we’ll find the original door seal and replacement knobs for you.
