Another option is to pop the knobs off and insert a small rubber o-ring between the knob and the face plate. Worked like a champ for me.

I thought of doing that, cept I couldn't find a suitable rubber o-ring.

I love how us tapirs "repurpose" all this household gear.

My wife is wondering why I've got all these carpenters clamps, tent poles, and duct tape.  Even though I don't do any home renovation or camping!!!

Take a peek at the nut that retains the pots (under the knobs). The brass nuts that hold the pots are chamfered and the o-ring should fit nicely in the countersunk part of the retaining nut. Drop the knobs back on, and apply gentle pressure to compress the o-ring just a bit. Should be just enough to tighten things up... Hope this helps.  :laugh:
