Force 10 Parts

Thought I would start a new thread.

I have a Force 10 range and the knobs keep breaking. I stuff foil in the knob and that seems to work. Has Force 10 redesigned the knobs?

Where can I get new ones?

Ok, I have to ask how does foil fix a broken knob? I have not seen a Force 10 stove so I am not familiar with the knobs.

Force 10 is out of Port Coquitlam (greater Vancouver) BC. So if you call ahead and are heading up next year, plan a stop over in Vancouver and pick new ones up if you can, or of course you can have them couriered to you.

You have to twist it and shuv it in there to make the knob tight again.

That is what came to my mind when tin foil was mentioned...

Of course aluminum foil can fix loose knobs. Also works well for loose television channel-changer knobs. Just rip a little piece off the rabbit ear antenna on top of the Zenith 900-lb giant glass tube TV, wrap the foil around the channel knob post, shove the loose knob onto the post and voila, you can change the channel to the Brady Bunch or Lost in Space or Quick Draw McGraw.

OK maybe I deserve this....

To turn on a burner, you push in on the knob and turn the stove on. What happens when you push on the knob the plastic stop inside the knob breaks. If you stuff a little bit of tin foil in the hole as a backing. The knob needs a metal clip.....

Folks, some things on the boat do not need force to work.
My house mouse has broken the plastic piece in the galley faucet which required the faucet replacement. If they had made the piece of brass, it would still be working.
My electric Force 10 stove does not require a "push then turn".

The push to turn n propane stoves is to override the thermocouple till hot enough to continue.


It's a safety feature not found on electric stoves.

Its electric and you have to push the knob in, then turn it.

Got this from Force 10:

Tom,



The replacement knob would be part # 55029, cost is $10.00 USD each.

Many RV ranges use the same burner valve pattern, push to turn on.

Perhaps knobs are way cheaper at local RV parts shop?

I wonder which is more expensive, asking them for a part for your RV or your boat. LOL

Most companies that "build" ranges or stoves go to the same parts bin for burners, thermostats and other OTS parts.

The RV market is huge , maybe 100x as large as boats with ranges , so the replacement parts industry is actually competitive..


Competition lowers prices.
