I have the same problem. The part of the knob that attaches to the oven has split. I have repaired it with epoxy and will update this question if it works. I also searched KitchenAid for a new knob and they do not have one. I did locate a knob (part # AP3885089) from AppliancePartsPros.com and have ordered it. It is listed as a Whirlpool part but looks like the KitchenAid. I will update you as to the epoxy repair and the suitability of the AP38 when it arrives. Hope this was of assistance.
The knob is available, I just recieved one I ordered online. www.partstore.com Part no. tros004. Cost approx. $14.00. Cheaper than a new toaster. Just turn the knob easy and too far!!!!!!!!! That is what breaks it.
I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service. They would be able to send you a replacement timer knob at no cost. You may simply pull off the broken timer knob, and the new knob will snap in with ease.
Their toll free telephone number is 1800-541-6390.
You *can* order parts from the manufacturer directly, but good luck
with that. The first time I called, and mind you their 1-800 # is a
quagmire of numeric menu selections before you ever get to talk to
someone, they said they would be happy to send me one but they were
out/backordered and that I should call back in 2 weeks. Instead of
putting me on some kind of list and sending me one when they got
more...Grrr! Then I tried calling back and made it, again, through the
menu maze only to find out they are in Eastern time. Super
But I also discovered that the flat head screwdriver is the best
temporary solution until I can get my hands on a replacement knob!
