Hello Aaron, my name is***** you set the clock on the appliance?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 10 months ago.
According to the wiring diagram there is a Thermal Cutout on the appliance
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I set it to manual but then left the clock at the sime
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Sorry left the clock but not flashing so think that's the same just pressed manual button.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Sorry this page is a bit allover the place. Set manual and clock stopped flashing
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 10 months ago.
So long as the clock is in manual mode, not flashing, and is clocking time then it should be ok.. There are three things that can cause this then.. the thermal cutout has operatedone of the selector switch fingers has shorted and welded shutthe relay on the timer is not operating
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 10 months ago.
do you have a multimeter?

Yes. I can use it basically to check Volts or continuity but not expert with it
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 10 months ago.
Ok.. Have you got the top off the oven so that you can see the selector switches?
