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.

How are your diy skills?

Thanks

thank you

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
