Cooking range knobs are not working
 
Hey everyone i have Maytag (Model: J35CWKW-4) cooking range. Last month one of the knobs stopped turning so i am not able to use one of the burners now today another knob stopped turning. How can i fix this?
As you can see in the pic below the knob on the upper right is stuck on that position and i am not able to turn it.
Here are the pics:

Determine if the problem is the knob or the "infinite switch"
1) pull the knob off the shaft.
2) inspect the inside of the knob for damage
2a) try to turn the shaft without the knob
3) see if the stove comes on without the knob

Replace either the knob(s) or the switch.
My money is on the switch.
