Yes I'm the repair guy and there are 3 control knobs on control panel one of the knob is gone and so is the post which screws into the electrical box to control temp of the grill at least it's own section of the grill

T​he only time I've ever encountered any thing that has left hand screws are on something that turns in a direction that would make the nut or bolt loosen if it was a right hand thread. for instance the blower wheel on Whirlpool dryer , or the hub nut on a GE washer. So I would say it needs to turn counter clockwise to loosen . Remove another knob and look at the threads with a magnifying glass to see the threads and determine if the threads spiral inward or outward.
