The knobs on our cooktop are extremely difficult to turn. We tried cleaning the stems and buying new knobs, but that didn't work and now we have to use pliers to turn the stems so that the burners will light. Do you have any suggestions for getting the knobs to turn more easily? Is it safe to spray the stems with WD40? Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
