Hi All,

I posted this on another forum and later thought "Wait One minute, I Should Have Posted This On The PC Form"!  Anyway....

We have an on-going dilemma with our 2-burner Atwood stove.  Irene loves to cook using a larger square griddle like this one.

Occasionally she will forget to use the larger grated burner with that griddle.  The large griddle on the smaller grate over-hangs the plastic control panel decal and knobs.  As a result, they have gotten damaged from the heat as seen below.

Has anyone else experienced this?  If so, did you find metal replacements for the damaged parts?  If I do nothing, the knobs will eventually resemble black gum wads.

First ?  answer No.  However I have broken some in my apartment or/and house years ago and I found a porcelain old one.  As the spindles are very similar for different stoves, maybe an appliance manufacturer or repair shop has metal or porcelain replacements. 
Good Hunting

We have not (yet) melted the knobs but the flat decal has bubbled up on the top/rear edge (toward the small burner). We try to keep all the pans and the heat diffuser shifted back away from the knobs but we have not been totally successful on that. I don't have a solution.

I just ordered a new label and a pair of knobs from a woman named Alex 937-526-2767 at JS Marketing.  They take Paypal or credit card.

Label part number 56388
Knob part number 56380 (2 required)
$22 including shipping for the 3 pieces

I had ordered two sets for $40 but she could not fill the order because she just ran out of knobs so I bought her last 3 of the 4 I asked for, paying $34.  I suppose you could back-order them.

Here is the label.


Here is one knob.


I am thinking of coming up with a heat shield to set in place to protect the knobs when Irene pulls out that big griddle.
