EuroPro Toaster Oven, model TO161 Knobs on two of three

Customer Question

EuroPro Toaster Oven, model TO161
Knobs on two of three controls softened (?) -- (by heat??)-- and split/tore when turning the knob. Replacements for knobs needed. Looked like some kind of "adhesive" may have joined knob to metal control control stems and softened--at least there is residue.
Neither my wife nor me have tried to force the turning in either direction to select the
setting for the oven.
I don't think a small pair of pliers will do much good for the stem
Source for proper knobs? Common problem for other TOs?

This has been a very common issue for these units. Unfortunately, they are imported and no parts are available. However, if you can post a picture of the back of the knob, I may be able to locate a universal knob that will work.
