I got one knob to turn, I did get a model number finally as tag was under cook surface.  I have never seen these switches before.

I may just have to junk this stove.  Seems like I will need to replace every switch but one.  I went ahead and tried WD40 because I was impatient and was p'od that I couldn't get a stupid knob to turn.

  I don't even understand how it is put together, looks like the whole system has to be replaced as one. 


   So I'm going to look for used parts to repair, if not, I'm pulling the control unit out and sending this oven out for scrap.

so I scrapped this one, not before taking a lot of good parts off of it.  Low and behold I get a Stainless steel one.  Two issues; first the upper lock makes tons of noise when first plugged in.

  I swap that out.

Second problem a few screw heads are stripped

  No problem, remove and replace.

  Third problem.
There are no potentiomiters on the dials.   Arrgh.  So this thing had a problem there and the owner decided they would take them all off and just make it a match light stove.  Of course the old pots were no good on the junked stove. 
   So now I need to find a strip of used pot switches for this oven.
