Thanks for that, Ive got it now. If the knob isnt popping out then what you can try is get to butter knifes and wedge them in were the control knob is either side and try and prise the knob out from there.Once its out you need to hold it tight and pull it off the control switch. If the push in funcation has failed on there then you need to replace the knob. But if you doing the above doens get the knob out then im afraid you need to pull the oven out from the unit and make sure the power is turned off.Then remove the top panel and there you will be able to access the swithes.From there you will be able to see the control knob. Use a screwdriver and try and push the knob and again you will be able to replace it from there.But im afraid doing it this way will need the tools to do this as its a bit of a strip down. But try the 2 butter kinfes first and see if this pops them out. Regards
