Pics of model and serial # info from both stoves. I don't know if this will help, but I thought it couldn't hurt. I appreciate your help!!  T

I would try the 2 places I mentioned @ the beginning of the post,It may be best to get the whole valve. When you get the parts also get some valve cream or grease depending on who you go with. The valves should be smooth enough to turn with your little finger by itself. any sign of metal friction or stiffness they need servicing(re-packing so to speak) If no luck contact me again.

I am an old stove guy myself. We used to sell valve grease at appliance parts where I worked for years. I always assumed it was white lithium grease. I will have to go out into the shop and dig around and find a tube of it and see what it is. They say yer mind is the first to go.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
