My GE convection range has one of the rotary dial controls ''slipping'': when you set it at 8, it switches on, but when you set it on ''Max'', it does not!

The knobs have a small piece of metal in them that aligns with, and grips, a flat spot on the shaft that they control. Quite often this piece of metal will work loose and cause the problem you are having.

There is a simple remidy to this problem.

Contact the appliance center you purchased the unit from, and if they sell parts, order a new knob for your unit. They are not too expensive at all. If they do not sell parts (ie: you purchased it at Home Depot or Lowes) then just let me know and Ill locate you one on line.
