Replacement Control Knob Fits Older Kenmore and Weber Grills

This replacement control knob is small enough to be used on a lot of barbecue grill models and the extended shaft on the bottom of the knob makes it very reliable whether the valve stem is flush with the control panel, above or below it when repairing other barbecues. This is the knob we use as a replacement for Kenmore and several Weber madel BBQ grills.

Replacement knob for older model Spirit gas barbecue grills. These smaller diameter knobs fit the original Spirit barbecues and older Genesis models when there were no Spirit models as part of Weber's available barbecues. Today the Spirit name is being used again and the design looks similar to the old original Spirit models but the new model has a larger knob.

Note the "D" shaped opening in the back of the control knob is for the control valve stem to attach to the control knob.
The valve stem simply slides into this back opening.
The valve stems -- see image at bottom of page on right side -- were often split down the middle so the valve stem could be squeezed smaller or spread wider and become tighter or looser to the knob.
The flat part of the "D" hole is about 1/4 inch. The D shaped opening in the back of this knob is positioned so if we're looking at the knob and the black line is facing Up as thought pointing at the 12 o'clock position of a clock then the flat part of the D opening is flat on the bottom at the 6 o'clock position and the round part of the D is rounded up towards the 12 o'clock position.
For instance in the image on the Left the Flat is at the 3 o'clock position so the black line on the face of the knob is in the 9 o'clock position in this image.

The Weber control knob for these Sprit models has a round face 1 5/8 inch diameter just like they were on the old Spirit models.
The Weber control panel had a lot of room and a larger diameter replacement control knob could be used.
However, there are instructions like: Off - High - Medium - Low and other directions on the control panel. Additional Images of the control panel are below.
Because the D opening in the bottom of this knob is large and because the round diameter of this knob is small most clients buying this knob are using them on very old Falcon, Charmglow, Arkla and other barbecues.

The valve stem does not extend past the Weber control panel on these Spirit Model barbecues so the knob extends past the control panel to slide onto the stem in the shape of the same "D". Weber older barbecue grill manifold and gas line connections were on the right side of the aluminum fire box. The burners installed across the fire box attaching on the far left and sliding onto the valve orifice on the far right side, below the control panel.
The extension is 1 3/16 inch long.

This close-up of a Weber Signature Skyline Series Spirit model shows this original control knob on a 20 year old barbecue we are repairing with all new parts. The knob appears to rest flush on top of the black control panle because the stem fits into the elongated stem on the back of the control valve. On the Right notice the same BBQ control panel with one of the knobs removed. The valve stem does not protrude from the flat surface of the panel.

In the description of the replacement knob there is a line that stated "D=6". This image showing the control valve stem beow the Weber control panle demonstrates what this means. In the "OFF" position the flat part of the "D" shaped hole on the control knob is at what would be the number 6 if the opening were the face of a clock. Notice the flat section cut away from the valve stem allows the knob to hold and turn the control valve. The flat area is at 6 o'clock position when the valve is in the off setting.

The Weber grills have use and ignition instructions written on the control panel. In this image we can see the settings for turning the knob but also ignition instructions, manual igniter instructions and temperature settings thatrefer to the times and valve settings for many commonly barbecued foods.
