The collar the knob sits in broke first but was still useable. When the knob broke had to replace both.
Getting the old collar out was the only tricky bit as had to pull the oven out then take off the cover plate above the knob housing.
After that very easy to slide in and sits snuggly.
QThe barrel of the broken knob won't pull out of the control panel, please could you advise? There is no obvious way to remove the fascia of the control panel (e.g. screws/ lever) - if this is necessary, do you have a video demonstrating this? Many thanks2 Answers

Fascia was removed by undoing four screws. It was necessary to remove the fascia because when the knob collar broke, the panel behind the fascia slid out of alignment. This happens commonly. (Pliers used to remove the knob but that was obvious, the new knob wouldn't just push in because of the sleeve slipping out of alignment behind the fascia.)

If the knob is not pushing in the shaft enough it will not let you turn it. Try pulling the knob half off and push carefully to see if it then turns. if this cures the problem try packing the shaft by dropping a small ball of rolled up kitchen foil into the knob hole to help prevent the shaft pushing in to far.
QI require to replace the knob but not the shaft. Can this be purchased separately1 Answer
