Hotpoint appliances are manufactured by General Electric. Each Hotpoint stove has several burner knobs that operate the individual burners. The knobs are constructed of heavy plastic, and slide on and off of the infinite switches that control the burners. If the infinite switch malfunctions, you must replace it to resume using the burner. Because the screws securing the switch to the range's control panel are located behind the burner knob, you must remove the knob to remove the infinite switch.
