Hot range knobs

sjhockeyfan325November 11, 2013

Staying with friends - they have a new Frigidaire range. The knobs get very hot when the oven is on. Is that normal? They get hot enough that you go have to use an oven mitt to touch them.

That is not normal IMO.

There's Hot and there's Too Hot.
As a general rule you should be able to touch the knob for a count of 10. If you can't hold the knob through a complete count to 10 the knob is too hot

There's no way I can touch the knob for a count of 10 - not even a count of 3. Thanks - I'll tell them they should get someone to look at it.
