Hign heat adhesive for oven knob

I know this isn't exactly the right forum but I'll give it a shot since it deals with things exposed to high temps

I need to replace a plastic oven control knob. I'd like to use an adhesive (glue, putty, etc) that will :

1. NBe able to withstand hi heat
2. Be strong enough to grip the metal stem

Any suggestions?

Thanks

No problem. Happens all the time.

Is the knob rounded off on the inside? If so post the make and model number of your stove or free standing oven and one of the appliance pros may be able to point you to a replacement knob.

I would guess a GE but could be wrong. GE knobs break all the time but still need a model #, I know of no glue that will hold it.

The knob hole on the inside looks like a half moon - round outside & flat across.


The make is a Black Thermador Model CT 227N-03 - Manufactured 1994

Looks like your stove was made by Bosch and sorry to say that knobs are no longer in stock. Google appliance knobs and several sites will came up with something that may work. The 1/2 moon shape is a very common type and most will fit. Also if there is a radio shack check there they have knobs listed. Won't match but should work.

A know is likely not exposed to high heat so I would think any adhesive should work fine. Of course you want to choose an adhesive that will work with plastic and metal.

Thanks I'll give it a try. Very frustrating considering the oven works perfectly fine

Still don't think glue will hold but if you want to try I would get a 2 part epoxy glue.

I doubt any glue will hold the pieces together.
Do a search for Universal Oven Knobs. You probably won't find the originals, but you might find a style you like that fits.
The knob styles change, but I would call the method of attachment almost universal.

I recently tried a new glue that comes in a caulking tube called Fuze*it. It is supposed to work on my materials. I used it to build a deck table on wet treated lumber and let me tell you, it is STRONG! Might be worth a try.
