Question about Smeg F170 Pyrolytic Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

FAULTY TIMER/CLOCK Timer has been temperamental recently, once finished timing the whole clock/timer unit would flash and only turning off the power and resetting the clock would allow the oven to work again. Put machine into pyrolytic clean mode and after a few hours noticed there was no display on clock/timer at all. Switched off at mains (didnt want it pyrolyticing all night)but in morning still no display at all, oven does appear to work though (just no timer or clock) Is the unit faulty? If so where can i get a replacement, assume it would be fairly straightforward to replace.

    WE had a very brief power failure this morning and now no matter what I do I can't reset my oven clock - it just keeps flashing

    the oven timer looses power supply intermittently. when it looses power; it appear to have the power restored once you turn on a heating coil/burner for about 15 mins. Then after several hours it looses power again and goes dead.

If the clock is showing time you may have accidently knocked the auto button this will shut off the power to both ovens until the timer times out you must press the manual button it usually has a little hand printed on it. If you do not have any lights on the clock or oven it may be due to
1. a blown fuse or tripped power supply
2.Thermal cut out tripped or failure
3.A broken live or neutral wire isolate the power before doing any continuity tests.
4. A faulty timer.

Replaced EOU43002X element, clock/timer now dead

Make sure there is power to the timer. Should be a fuse somewhere.

Can not re set time

Are you trying to reset the timer or the Clock? It's a bit different on each stove, but usually if it's the clock, you press the Clock button TWICE, the time will then begin to flash on and off. then press the + or - sign to increase or decrease the time. When you have gotten to the time you desire, PRESS the Clock button ONCE more. The time will be set, & then you should be all set :).

If it's the KITCHEN TIMER, Press the Kitchen Timer button ONCE, the timer will start flashing. It will usually flash all 0000's. Press the + sign to add minutes, then Press the Timer Button ONCE again, it will be set to the amount of time you added and will beep once the time runs out.

Disclaimer: This instruction is primarily for the General Electric Stove. If you state your specific model, I could be more specific.

My Bosch double oven timer is not working. No clock, notimer, but the oven is working fine.

Sure this is the failure off the unit but make sure that the step down transformer for the power to the unit is faulty or burnt. If so replace the transformer. If power goes tto unit without display then the processor can be faulty . Change the clock timer. unit if you need the timings.

Power went off now oven wont work. The timer keeps flashing

If you look at the timer control you will see a button that is used to set the clock. most likely the oven will not operate until the time is set. Press the clock button, set the time and either press start or the clock button again.

Creda Solar Plus Model 48339N Clock/Timer not working

You have to remove the complete top assy as one unit. To do this you need to remove the side panels, there are screws at the rear, and some at the front of the oven, you will then be able to see the screws securing the top
The top then slides towards the rear, then you can gain access to the timer unit.
Hope this helps.

Hi this is propably too late now but we moved in to our new house six months ago and have a Zanussi ZBF 360 oven, and had no idea how to set the timer / clock. After fiddling around with the oven clock for the last 6 months i managed to set the clock. It shouldn't be much different to the one you have. Hope this helps you and others in the future.

Click the middle button until the little red things on the screen moved round to the clock symbol, then press + or - to get to the correct time, once you have done this it will flash for a few seconds then it will stop flashing and the clock is set. The same goes for the timer to set it when you want to cook something for a period of time eg: ten mins.

As for getting the oven timer to turn it's self on and off I am still messing with it and when i have mastered it I will let people know.
