Same problem with the DKJ/1-60 on a EoroPro toaster oven. Can't find a replacement for less than the cost of a new toaster oven, after looking at how many brands use this defective switch I know what I will NOT buy to replace the toaster oven.

My timer part is DKJ/1-15 E185572.
It seems only available in China.
This is a 15min timer with always on option.
The problem is that the spring action is gone. One of the internal gears is loose/broken.
The timer probably costs $1 in China, but if you are lucky to find a different part to replace it, it might cost $10 or more.
My Rival toaster oven probably costs $20.
I can only see 3 solutions:
1) Fix the gear (need a lot of mechanical skills to solder it)
2) Find an old toaster/bread maker in the junk yard or Salvation Army store and take apart the timer.
3) Buy a new toaster oven.
Changing it to a simple power switch is not a good/practical option.
There is a reason you need a timer. You don't want to to be there to turn it off or keep track of how much time has passed.
Too bad these mechanical timers are not available in US.
For a toaster oven that costs $20, I wouldn't pay more than $5 to fix the timer.
I assume DKJ/1-60 is a 60min timer probably used in Bread makers.
Since Bread makers are more expensive, probably it is worth finding an old one to take the timer apart.

The timer switch was no longer turning on the toaster oven, but the timer function was still working. I removed the timer switch from the toaster oven and very carefully disassembled the timer from the on/off part of the switch (the black plastic part), filed and sanded the points and the white plastic cam that puts pressure on the flexable point strip and rebent it so that the points would make contact when the knob was turned.
