Remove Intermatic 60 min. wall timer face plate only from wall

The Intermatic face plate seems bigger than the cover plate. Does the knob come off in order to only remove the face place? I want to paint the wall behind it.

That knob should just pull straight off. Check to make sure there isn't a tiny set screw on the side, but otherwise you can pull it off and remove the cover plate.

Instructions for replacing the spark module on a DCS-305

In order to replace the Spark Module on your DCS-305, do the following:

  • 1
    Unplug the range from the wall outlet prior to servicing.
  • 2
    Remove the burner knobs from the burner switches on the front of the range. To remove the knobs, pull them straight away from the range. If the knobs are difficult to remove, wrap a piece of wire or string behind each knob for extra leverage.

  • 3
    Take off the bezel plate from each knob. Depending on the model of your range, this plate may be secured with screws, or the plate slides into place.
  • 4
    Remove the two screws that secure the valve panel then pull the panel off of the range. The spark module is now accessible for inspection, repair or replacement.

    I cant get the older (10 yrs) timer out to see if my junction box will hold a newer digital model. I tried to pull the knob out but it doesnt budge. There doesnt seem to be a set screw.

    If following information does not apply, then add a comment with in-focus photo of timer posted on flickr, for possible help.
    All timers are attached to electrical box with 2 screws that are usually hidden by a cover plate.
    Some really old timers have a set screw on the knob itself.
    Most 'knob' timers fit onto a shaft by friction. Put a pry bar under it and force it off.
    If timer is attached to cover plate, see if you can break the cover plate.

    Can't remove the disk that covers the screws to tighten door handle with lock

    Hi, W/D here.
    Kwikset has basically two styles of cover plates.
    If you are on the locking side of the door and facing the knob you'll either see two screw heads (one on either side of the knob), or you see only the cover plate.
    It sounds like you have the cover plate type. Here's how to get to the screws:
    1. Feel the underside of the knob, and you'll feel a slot with a tab sticking through it.
    2. With a fine bladed screwdriver, press the tab up into the slot, and pull the knob towards you.
    3. With the door knob off, look around the edge of the trim ring for a screw driver slot. Insert the screw driver and gently pry the trim ring up.
    4. You're there!
    5. Re-assembly is in the reverse order. When you go to put the knob back on, you'll probably have to use the screw driver to push in the tab as you slide the knob back on.
    Best regards, --W/D--

    I need to remove the intermatic switch from my wall.

    If this timer has one knob, there should be two removable pins put one pin into the time you want to start and put the other pin in the time you want it to stop. Then set to current time

    How do you remove meatl face plate in front of Drain pump. Looks to be riveted in place, no visible screws???????

    If you are talking about the bottom front face plate that covers the filter, there are 3 screws on the bottom front. They are painted white (my washer is white) and hard to see. It takes a phillips screwdriver to get them off.
