I have a 1998 Baumatic fan oven but cant find the model number.

This answer was rated:

I have a 1998 Baumatic fan oven but can't find the model number. The digital clock seems to have gone haywire and I can't remember how to reset it. It has 5 buttons.
The model number should be on a label in the door recess.

Can you explain what you mean by the clock going haywire?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Can't find the model number anywhere.


The alarm light seems to be on all the time.



OK, didn't know of any Baumatic machine with an Alarm light.
Do you mean it's an A showing?
If so, then it's on auto.

Number the buttons with 1 on the left.
What are the markings for each number?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

1 = something that looks like a bell

2 = something that looks like heat/flames rising out of tray

3 = same as 2 but with a 'x' through it

4 - a minus sign

5 = a plus sign


Sorry not to be more helpful!

No, that's helpful.
One way or another I'll get enough information to help you.

Turn the power off to the machine.
Wait 10 minutes, turn the power on and set the clock.

Press and hold 1 and 2 together.
While holding, press and release 5 to set the time.

If this doesn't work, repeat and press and hold 2 and 3 instead.

Let me know what happens.

Hope this helps

OK - will try that. Will that then mean it is not on any timer??

It means it will be off of Auto cook and on manual cook.
The oven should work when it's off of A or Auto.

You're a GENIUS - thank you so much. It was the second option that worked. So where are you that you have EST on your e-mails?? USA??

I'm on the south coast of England.
Just Answer is in the USA though.

Glad you got it sorted and working.

I'd appreciate it if you could rate the answer/help I provided.
It's how I'm paid for my time and efforts.
