Turning the time was getting difficult to turn. Knob was slipping on the shaft. Had to use a pair of pliers to turn the shaft on the timer.

Disconnected power cord from the outlet. This is a must, to ensure your safety. I removed 3 screws from the back of the control panel, and tilted the panel forward. Removed wires and connected to the new timer, one wire at a time. Doing one wire at a time ensures that each wire is connected to the correct terminal on the new timer. Also replaced all 3 knobs. Reassembled the panel, reconnected the power. After placing the order, delivery of the parts was quicker than expected. I was notified when the order was shipped, and was able to trace the delivery from start to finish. I'm very please with PartsSelect.
