shower knob


In our bath/shower the middle knob that adjusts the water from tub to shower head can be turned back and forth with a pliers (with the knob off), but when I put the knob on it wont work. Are there different types of knobs?

Yes, there are different types and sizes of knobs.

Make sure screw is tight and fits right.

If that's good to go, then the teeth on the knob itself are probably worn out and no longer able to sufficiently grip the stem to turn it. Get a new one. Take it with you to a big box, plumbing supply or hardware store to match it up. Just a suggestion.
