APRIL-2015 
My fiancée was cooking chili on the stove last night. She turned the knob to adjust the right front burner, and the knob post got stuck in the "on" position. It was stuck so badly, I had to call the fire department and the firemen couldn't get it to budge. It appears there is a manufacturing or design defect concerning the knob post. The firemen ultimately broke the knob post with pliers, trying to turn the stove off, and ended up cutting off the gas to my house. I have disconnected the device at the appliance valve now.
