Kleenmaid timers do fail from time to time. Reconditioned timers are a viable remedy and not as expensive as new ones. Depending on where in oz you are, a tech will have to sight the faulty timer to ensure the correct replacement unit. You can't rely on model number alone........Nomess

Easy fix. Replace the timer. The timer drive motor or gears inside have failed. Their are 2 styles of timers. Plastic type base and a metal type base. The plastic timer has a hollow shaft. A plastic rod with a rounded tip is inserted into the hollow shaft to hold the timer knob in place. To remove the knob and skirt on these you simply yank out the rod and the knob will come on off. Then you can yank off the skirt (dial Indicator) and the timer mounting screws will then be revealed. The other style has a threaded shaft in which the knob will unscrew and the skirt can be removed so you can get to the timer mounting screws. A big old molex type plug goes into the timer. You yank that out and look for corrosion before buying anything AND make sure that plug is in there tight because it can vibrate out.
