Hiya,
OK, thanks for that.

Turn the power off, wait 5 minutes then turn it on.
The timer should come on flashing.

Number the buttons with 1 on the left.

Press and hold together 1 and 2.
While holding press and release 6 to change the time.

If this doesn't work and take it off of auto, turn off again.
Turn on and press and hold together 2 and 3.
While holding press and release 6 to change the time.

One of these versions should take it off of Auto and allow you to set the time and use the oven.

If neither works, you have a faulty timer and it will need replacing.

Hope this helps

Hiya,
As I said in my post, if neither works, you have a faulty time and you'll need to replace it.

Hiya,
No problem.

Good luck with the repair.

One thought though, pull each button out (it takes a bit of force to pull them out) and clean them.
Refit and try setting the clock again.

Thanks
