With modern-day technology, appliances have been updated to their style and also to their basic functions. Most of the appliance nowadays has easy navigation to control the amount of heat to be able to cook the food. We have different kitchen appliances that we can use for cooking. Aside from the kitchen range, we often used s the oven to bake or heat frozen food. Using its knobs, you can easily set the temperature and time for how long it needs to be cooked. Oven knobs are designed to be sturdy that can’t be possibly removed or broken. However, issues can happen, and all of a sudden you will notice that your Viking oven knob is broken. Initially, you will try to find the replacement right away depending on the model type of your appliance. Changing the knob depends on the situation, do check the following.

 Replacing an oven knob can be easy but even though you can’t navigate using the knob, you can still use the appliance to cook. By using a pair of pliers, remove the knob and grab the temperature knob shaft. When using the pliers, you can navigate the heat with a firm grip and you can be able to move the direction to high or low and in this way, you can cook the food in the meantime.

 If you see that the knob shows cracks or other damages, it can be fixed by using epoxy. Apply this in the cracked area of the knob and let it dry. You can use nose pliers to help close the crack or sand it to smooth. However, if the knob is damaged, it can be replaced. 

 Replacing the broken knob can be easily done by sliding onto the shaft with ease and your Viking oven should be good as new and be able to use it right after the new knob has been installed.
