One of the burners on my whirlpool range will not turn off.

Customer Question

One of the burners on my whirlpool range will not turn off. My son has used a wrench to try to turn it off and has twisted the post. How can I turn off the burner without turning gas off to the range.

Stick a round tooth pick into the hole in the gas jet, then break it off and place a strong piece of tape over it. This will remove the fire hazard, until the burner control can be replaced.
