Good afternoon,

You have reached Justanswer UK, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches experts in various skills to customers.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

This indicates the oven is overheating or the door seal is worn out hence, the heat is escaping and the knobs are getting very hot.

You will have to check/replace the door seal, if the door seal appears fine then I am afraid the thermostat is faulty and will need replacement.

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.

I hope you enjoyed your experience with Justanswer UK today.

Have a wonderful day.

Thank you.
