Pitco fryer problem

 Can't turn pilot knob. Pushes in but won't move off off. Haven't used for a year. Any help appreciated. Bruce

    Try ONLY slight depressing the knob to release the stop.  Then turn to Off position.   A Pitco Deep Fryer manual is here:   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=17&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwix_4unqv_bAhUQRa0KHcBaBf4QFgiXATAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.alexanderpartyrentals.com%2Fgalleryupload%2Fwebdoc%2Fguides%2FFRYER%2520-%2520PITCO%2520-%2520INSTRUCTIONS.pdf%3Fv%3D91918PM&usg=AOvVaw0R7SYVKOfBT32G6HMMxBah
     
    If the knob still wont turn, then it is stuck.   Try to remove the plastic knob parts.   Then use a wrench/pliers to turn/loosen the stem.   ... Some use WD40 on the stem, but this may not be good for the seals.
