  • This isnt answerable without a picture. Can you add one? It might not be repairable at all. – Grant Dec 14 '14 at 19:37
  • Agreed. It's also not clear what you're asking. If it broke as you pulled it out of the box it was packaged in then take it back and get another one. – user20127 Dec 14 '14 at 19:52

There should be a notch, slot, groove, or other marking on the shaft. Which should align with a similar marking on the knob.

If not... Simply turn the shaft to one of the extremes (all the way up or down), then install the knob to indicate the appropriate setting.
