Older Tappan range knobs needed
« on: May 09, 2016, 01:11:56 PM »

Looking for at least one knob for my Tappan gas range.  These are for 0.340" shaft diameter.  The knob has a D-shaped hole that engages the gas valve shaft.  The knob extension is about 13/16" long.  These "knobs" are not round.  Kind of flat (see picture).

Thanks for your reply.

The model number is 36-3246-00.  This number is followed by a slash and what I assume is the serial number.

The knob you referenced on Repair Clinic looks identical to the ones on my stove.  However, I excitedly bought a knob that also looks like this on eBay a while back, but the hole for the shaft was too small.  The part number for the eBay knob was Frigidaire 5303207050.  I've been thinking about drilling out the eBay knob to make it fit, but I'm hesitant to try it for fear of destroying the knob or not being able to keep it from spinning on the valve shaft.
