To set the timer clock on this its usually this way.

Turn the power supply off to the oven and wait 10 seconds and then turn on.

Number the buttons from left to right with 1 on the left.

Then press and hold buttons 1 and 2 and at the same time press the + button to set the time.

If that doesnt work then press and hold buttons 2 and 3 and at the same time press the + button again.

Try them and that should set the time for you on this and get the oven working.

Let me know how it goes.
