Customer Question

I have a Hotpoint Ultima HUE 52 cooker. My home help rather enthusiastically removed the control knobs to clean behind them, and I cannot get them back on again. Is there a special way to do this?

Hiya,
They are simply a push fit.

Look at the D shaped shaft and the inside of the knob.
Line the flat edges together and push them on.

There's normally a sprung piece of metal inserted into the knob, this is the part that goes on the flat edge of the shaft.

Check it out, let me know what you find.

Thanks
