part for olympic kiln

Aloha fellow claypeople:

The button on the baso valve on my Olympic Gas Kiln(1827G)has
frozed up due to corrosion from the lovely weather we have here in
Hawaii. I have taken it apart and attempted spraying a silicon spray in
there to no avail. I think the corrosion on the sides of the button will
not allow it to move freely.

Does anyone know of used kiln sources or better yet some brilliant
way to fix this without a new part?

thanks in advance..

leslie in the islands....
