I received a timer replacement, P/N 33002855 today. I attempted to twist the front top knob in reverse while holding the knob dial indicator as directed. The knob did in fact rotate counterclockwise as suggested. However, the knob did not release from the shaft. It moved out approx. 1/4" but did not release. It felt as if it was spring loaded and not releasing from the shaft.
I contacted the repair forum via telephone. The gentleman confirmed what I had done but was unable to provide any further procedure to release the spring loaded knob. I could not see or locate 2 screws under the outer dial probably because the knob would not release. Any further suggestions?
