ge model wbsr3140g1ww timer/control knob broken
The knob that control the timer sticks out and I can't seem to get it and the plate back on tight enough for the timer to work properly. I don't think there's anything wrong with the timer just that without the knob on tightly, it doesn't work correctly. Please help.Answer

Either the knob is bad or the timer is loose and every time you try to put the knob on the timer just pushes back. The knob is more common but sometimes the timer will come loose. Take the cover off the control panel and look to see if the timer is loose and if so figure out why. It could be a broken tab or a loose screw. If there is a broken tab you have to figure out if the tab is broken on the timer or the control housing.
If you do not see anything wrong replace the timer knob.
