ANSWER Joe, If your timer looks like this 21001522 then, you do have a retractable locking shaft in the back side of the timer." Remove the timer knob as follows: Locate the hole with the timer knob shaft at the rear center of the timer. Using a small,flat blade screwdriver, pry the rod located in this hole up to release the timer knob. The knob and skirt will then pull straight off." If you have a "metal bodied" timer like this
21001341 then you will need to unscrew(turn counterclockwise) the knob from the threaded timer shaft. Thanks and Good Luck
