I took my knob apart one time because it was lighting intermittently and all of the other wiring checked out. I resoldered all of the connections around the circuit board. I fixed it, but it was a tenuous process getting it apart and back together. I learned later that the lettering and/or coloring on the insert will just "rub off". It all stuck back together without my having to reinvent the adhesive, which I felt fortunate about. I got lucky, it works, I'm not messing with it again unless it's dead.
