Activiti Timer Job Has Run Out Of Retry Attempts

I am using Activiti 5.22.0. I am noticing as of late that we have timer jobs that are no longer firing off. No errors. No Warnings. No logs that I know of saying that they are being ignored or skipped or that there is a problem.

Anyways, if logging is turned up enough, I can see this is the query that the Activiti Engine is doing:

Obviously, something has gone wrong with these timers and has caused them to exhaust there retry attempts (ie, most are negative values now due to forced retries). I want to know how I can reset the RETRIES_ amount via the REST API. I know how to retry the timer itself via the REST API, but this does not seem to reset the RETRIES_ amount. Therefore, the timer never automatically fires off again. The only thing I can think of at the moment is to physically delete the timer via the REST API and then restart my Spring Boot Activiti Java process to get the timer recreated hopefully. Is there a proper way to handle this situation?
