My original timer knob broke

First don't waste money on buying the D-Shaped Knob Insert Clip. The new knob comes with one already, If I knew this I could have saved money. It takes less than one minute to put the new knob on. Just line up the flat sides and slide it on. The plus side is now it works better than when it was brand new! guess it came with a faulty timer knob from the factory. The original knob was kinda hard to turn now its easy and smooth.

This is not the part you are looking for

The diagram is wrong!!!! The timer knob is much bigger. Had to have GE come out to get right part.

Broken timer

originally the know broke, then we used pliers to twist the timer until it broke. Fix was simple, removed 2 screws, tilted the control face forward, removed the old timer, pulled off the wires and replaced in exact position on new timer switch, replaced new timer, put back in the screws and put on the new knob. Like new.
