Hi Mandi


Ill just check for you, now

Hi Mandi
Please go here (just click on the word ”here”).
Wait for the page to settle, ignore the adverts then click the download button. You are looking for the Media Fire file.This is a PDF file so you can save it or print it for future reference.

This is the manual for your oven and all the controls and clock operation, are explained in the early chapters. This should get you set.


If you need more help, please just ask, in the meantime,

Rob, when I press the clock button to set the time, it doesn't go to 12:00 so can't set it using the rotary knob as instructions say. What is the next thing I have to do?? I need to set the clock for the oven to work, correct?
Hi Mandi
The clock must be set for the oven to work.

If it wont set, it seems there is a problem with the clock itself.
This may be borne out by the tape on the clock.

The clock is very expensive to replace.
Sorry its not good news for you

If you wanted it repaired, I think the cheapest way is to get an all inclusive quote as this would include ALL parts.

Please let me have your postcode and I can check for you

Hi Mandi

OK, its £125
This includes the call out, all labour, ALL PARTS and the vat

The scheme is run by British Gas, so call them on 0800(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr/>
They will make an appointment for you

Sorry its not such good news.
Please don't forget to rate using the smiley faces, this should reflect me, NOT the oven !!
