Tom Wirtxzfield, take a look at the service manual that you can download from here. It will show you how to get to the individual parts and thus allow you to further trouble shoot your receiver.

Timer has middle shaft,plastic with 2 set screws,this gets brittle and breaks,very bad design,might be able to fabricate shaft and clamp it over or 2 half-shells clamped to create a new one,Like I said,bad design,should have been all metal.

it could be the coupling between the switch and the timer its self, this is common on models with this timer. the coupling is plastic and breaks , but is a easy fix
