GE cooktop Answered

The knob won't turn on my cooktop range.  3 others work.  Is there anything that I can do to free this up?

Is this a gas range or electric?

Is it too late? Seems there is no reply.

Hmm, I didn't hear an explosion, so maybe it was electric and the worst thing imaginable happened?

You usually have to press down and turn as the safety lock. Maybe there is food or something gummed up in the knob workings. Pull off the knob cover straight up and see if there is anything under. If not, you might need to get that switch replaced.
