GE Oven Control Knobs Melting — Solution
Unfortunately, if your GE oven control knobs are melted, you will have to replace them. To prevent your oven knobs from melting, ensure that the door is completely closed while broiling. The high temperature used to broil can melt the control knobs if the door isn’t closed. After oven use, you can open the door and place a fan in front of it to cool the oven down. If you leave your oven door open without the fan, the control knobs may get discolored or melted because of the heat. To replace your GE oven control knobs, do the following…
Step 1: Get new control knobs.
Step 2: Unplug the oven.
Step 3: Using a putty knife, carefully pry off the control knobs.
