We have a houseguest this Christmas, unfortunately.
This person insists on turning the dials on our old (late 70s) GE
electric range the wrong way to set the temperature. In other words,
instead of going from off to low to medium to medium high to high, just
turn the knob from off straight to high, and from high back to off.
The knobs DO turn freely 360 degrees and offer no resistance to being
turned this way.
But something just makes me think this is wrong and will damage either
the knob or part of the electronics.
Is twisting the knob the wrong way - going directly between off and high
without twisting past the lower temperatures - in any way damaging to
anything other than my blood pressure?
