Purchased a Whirlpool gas range. The control knobs for the range top easily turn on without pushing down. Many times I have cleaned aournd the knobs or arm has brushed by it and it turns on. A little later I smell gas. It is very dangerous!

To prevent from blowing up the house I now remove the control knobs so they cant be accidently turned on.
