Many control knobs do not have "high" and "low" and other indicators on the actual knob because the indicators are on the actual control panel. Obviously this control knob replacement for Kenmore gas barbecue grills from Sears have the instructions on the knob. Most Kenmore models also had instructions on the control panel of the gas grill.

The problem is the instructions on the control panel of any barbeque will eventually rub off, get scratched until they are illegible or just fade away. We do get calls asking for decals or stickers but the individual grills and separate models do not make these stickers available to replace during BBQ grill repairs.

This is the back side of the Kenmore and Charbroil BBQ control knob replacement part. The "D" shaped hole is flush at the bottom edge of the knob because the control valve stem extends beyond the control panel. Although there were a few Weber and Turbo models with sunken valves most gas grills allow the valve stem to stick out beyond the control panel.

The valve stem will have the flat of the "D" at 12 when in the off position. This means the flat of the D which is at the 8 o'clock position in the image on the left is at the same position os "Off". In this picture the Flat part of the D shaped hole is where the 8 would be on a clock and if we looked from the front the "Off" indicator on the knob will also be at the 8 position.

The valve stem on any barbecue is going to have some kind of valve stem for the control knob to grip the control valve. In order to turn the valve stem they will generally have on area flat and the result often looks like the capital letter D. When checking replacement controls always check the valve and the knob for the proper setting by using the position of the D. Imagine a clock face around the valve stem. At the OFF position this knob is designed to have the flat part of the "D" at the 6 o'clock position.
