Hello sw3107 and Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

There are several of us in this forum topic that would like to help you. In order to do so, we need you to help us first by including much more detailed information about the type of appliance and more specific information about the condition.

Appliance brand and model? New to you appliance or one you have been using? Any changes made? Prior repairs made? If so, what specifically was done? Natural gas or propane? What knob specifically? Top burner knob? Another knob? If so, where? Spark ignition knob? Oven temp knob, etc.

The detailed information you provide us will help us determine what possibilities could be causing the problem(s) and specifically what part(s) are likely to be causing the problem.

Some Help Here:
Read the Range-Stove-Oven-Broiler Basic Help Informational Sticky Note, in this forums topic, for more detailed information.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, down loadable repair and or owners manuals, which may be available on line.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be also. They will need the make, model an serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

***If and or when you attempt any repairs, "Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs. Always check for gas leaks whenever the appliance is moved and/or a repair includes any connection of a gas part."
