Hmmmmmm. Looks like my black glass cooktop is missing a knob.. Yesterday, I cleaned under that knob and then went on my merry way to attend to a multitude of small tasks, indoors and out. Eventually, I remembered I had to replace the knob on that silver thingy that holds it in place, and I came to the miserable conclusion that the knob was missing! I looked for that knob in every room of this house. I dug through the yucky stuff in the kitchen garbage can, searched the garage, and even looked for that knob on the outdoor patio. I looked under the living room couch for that knob, and I turned my purse upside down and emptied the contents of my purse to see if I had absentmindedly placed the knob in that purse of mine. 45 minutes of looking, and not finding that knob, had me online searching for a replacement knob made for my model of a Jenn-Air glass cooktop. $12.95 for one knob. Good price. Problem solved! While at the kitchen sink, I glanced at the black glass cooktop one more time. Huh? Let's count the burners. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Huh? Let's count the knobs. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Huh? I do not have 6 burners needing 6 knobs on my black glass cooktop. I took knob number 5, sitting to the left of the silver thingy for heaven's sake, and placed knob number 5 back on the silver thingy. Duh! .

Here we have cooktops that have gas burners on them. You turn the knob and the burner produces a flame. I just thought I lost a knob used to turn on one of the burners, but it was right there in front of me. My cooktop looks similar to the one in the photo.
Senior moment...sometimers....brain fart....all of the above. Glad you sorted that out. It's like the moment I realized I had misplaced my cellphone. Blind panic as I'm telling my sister I have no idea where I might have left it. Duh...I was talking to my sister on the missing cellphone. Yup...I'm blonde.

Zooming, huh @Corbin5 yeah, if I start zooming I could wind up on the floor , with me it's carelessness , I'll have something in my hands .... like the car/house keys .... and get sidetracked so I put the keys down and within an hour I've forgotten where I put them.
