Hello, my name is George..
Can you look at the label on the cooker (Inside the grill or the oven), and tell me the model number please.
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Hard to read all I can see is classic 90 cream CHRM (###) ###-####? All I can manage to read
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
How many buttons has the clock got?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
6
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
can you press the 4th button along and then try the oven
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok no didn't work
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Try pressing the first two buttons at the same time.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yep I have already as that's what I do when I reset the clock still not Working
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The screen is still completely blank like the power is off
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
I understand that the screen is blank.. but what we do not know is; if the clock has died or the LED has died. If the LED then we can get the oven to work, but, if the clock has died then the only way to get the appliance working without replacing the clock is to bypass the timer relays for which you will have to remove the top of the cooker.
Try pressing the first two buttons at the same time and then pressing button 6, as if you are going to set the time... Then once that is done, press button 4.
If that doesn't work, switch off the appliance at the wall for a minimum of ten minutes.. Then try again.
regards
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok that hasn't worked I will switch it off & try again in 10 mins do I press 6 the same time as 1&2 & then press 4 on its own?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Cup of tea time now then......
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Press and hold buttons 1 & 2 together and then press button 6.. Then release all buttons and wait for 5 secs.
Press button 4
Let me know how you get on.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok thanks
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok, nothing happening with that one either :(
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Ok, the only way to get the oven working then is to remove the top of the oven to access the rear of the timer and then to bypass the timer relays.. Or replace the timer.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Sounds like a job for an expert then! I'm not happy to start pulling it about & removing things is it an easy job?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
It is a job that would take me about 20 mins as I know what I'm doing and will know which wires to connect together once I see the rear of the clock/timer.. If you wish to send me photos of the cooker style, I could talk you through it if you wish.. It would take you considerably longer than 20 mins though.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
Do you want me to talk you through it?
