Stuck Stove Knobs
« on: March 14, 2018, 12:26:39 AM »
Here's one for the stove guru's.
The knobs on my mark 11 Tanami stove are a bit of
an issue, the top one for the smaller burner doesn't
move at all While the other is heading along the same path'
I'm after any ideas on how to free up the knobs.
Thanks for any advice Norm

I'm assuming it's the Swift 2 burner stove in the "classic" kitchen - if not... perhaps this will help someone else with that setup! I pulled the stove out and sent it back to Swift in Melbourne. They overhauled it and it came back like new. It was surprisingly cheap! Make sure you send them all the bits (eg trivet) or at least tell them you have kept it - I ended up with a new trivet because I didn't send it down and so they replaced it! There are some threads about how to get the stove out.

I found on mine the knob had slipped down the shaft to far and when pushing down it wasn't hitting the gate to allow it to turn. Pull the knob off and use a pair of plyers or a small spanner to try it ,  if that works simply pack the knob up on the shaft a little to alllow more travel.

Thanks the knob doesn't even push down to allow it to turn.
Might have to remove it and send it away or replace it
with some thing else.
