Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The knob is likely stuck on the rod because its glued on and you are going to need to get the knob off of the rod, reinstall it and then install the knob on the rod. Mini has released a service bulletin for replacing the knob as well. I have enclosed the bulletin in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.
