Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

Expert:  Daniel replied 5 months ago.

The clock has to be set and not flashing for the oven to work otherwise it thinks its in auto mode.

To set the clock what you need to do is press and hold the clock button for about 2 seconds.

Then press either the - or + button to set the time and then leave it a few seconds and it will lock the time in.

Then once its set try the oven and see if it starts to work from there.

Try that and see what happens and let me know.

I see the question is still open here. Do you still need help on this?

If so just get back to me. If not then if you could remember to rate the answer that would be great.

Many thanks
