In most cases there is a digital timer on the machine or a manual timer. The timer should be located behind the panel behind where the container sits below the funnel. If it is a manual timer you can simpley turn it up in small increments. If it is a digital timer you will need to unplug the machine, find the little dipswitch on the board the will read set on one side and lock on another. Set the switch to set, plug the machine is and hold down the brew button til you hear 3 clicks. After the third release the button and let it fill to about 2/3rds of the way up and turn it off. If it is still not correct you can repeat this by turning it back on and holding down the brew switch but allow it to go either higher or lower of the previous level til correct. Hope this helps.

First you have to make sure to set the clock for the correct current time:
Press down and hold the SET button. Then alternately press the UP and DOWN buttons (indicated by arrows), until you reach the current time, then release the SET button. (there is a PM indicator on screen but not an AM indicator - if you don't see the PM you are at AM)
To set the time for the brew to start in the future:
Press and release the MODE button once and the Delay Brew Clock picture will start flashing on the screen.
While the Clock picture is flashing - hold down the SET button while you use the UP and DOWN arrow buttons to set the desired brew time (you can hold down an arrow button to get there faster). Release the SET button and now that brew time is programmed. (After a few seconds the clock picture will disappear but the future brew time is programmed.)
To activate the delayed brew:
Press and release the MODE button once. The Clock picture will be flashing and the time shown will be the time that you previously set for the future brew). While the Clock picture is flashing - press and release the BREW button. The Clock picture will remain on steady. The BREW light will not come on until the time in the future that you have programmed.
Pretty confusing - but it does work. Just remember that if you see the Clock picture on steady - the machine will come on at the time you have set in.
If you want to use the machine earlier - while the Clock picture is steady - you just press the BREW button and it will brew.
If the Clock picture is steady but you want to cancel the automatic future brew - just press the BREW button twice. (This turns it on and then off and cancels the future brew).

If you're talking about the timer, first make sure your time is set correctly by holding down the "set clock" button until the proper time appears. make sure it's correct for am or PM. Then hold down the "set timer" button until the time appears that you want it to turn on. Again, ensure it's AM or PM. Then push the "on auto" button twice, so the light is green. You're done.

Go to Hamilton Beach dot com, pull down customer suppot menu, click on use and care guides, type in product and model number, click send and your manual will load. Print it out so you have it. Setting the timer is a piece of cake, Hold down the program button until the clock flashes. While still holding the program button down, set the timer for whatever time you want the pot to perk. Let go of the program button. To check if the timer is set right right, puch the prigram button just long enough to see what time it is set for. If it's right, prepare the pot the night before, push the program button to set and forget about it. It will perk at the time you set every morning. Katherine
Setting the Clock:
When the coffeemaker is plugged in, 12:00 will
flash continuously until you set the time.
Entering “Time Set” Mode:
To set the time, hold down either the “Hours”
or “Minutes” button until the clock stops flashing
and begins to count up (about 2 seconds).
You are now in the “Time Set” mode and can
operate either button to achieve the desired
setting. The buttons can be held down to scroll
through the digits, or pressed and released
lightly to advance one digit at a time.
When scrolling, the numbers will advance
slowly at first and then speed up to the rate
of about three per second. When the number
displayed approaches the desired setting,
release the button and press repeatedly to
advance one digit at a time. Be careful to
make sure that the PM indicator is on if a
PM time is desired.
Exiting “Time Set” Mode:
The “Time Set” mode can be exited in
one of two ways:
1. Press any button besides the “Hours” or
“Minutes” button. This will exit the “Time Set”
and activate the selected function.
2. Do nothing. If neither the “Hours” nor
“Minutes” button is pressed for a period
of five seconds, the “Time Set” mode will
Unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - not a second less - in order to fully reset it. Then, when you plug it back in, turn the function dial to Clock again. Press and hold the HR button for a few seconds, and then set the hours. It should work now unless it got zapped, as you said.
I was able to fix my little problem. I unplugged my coffe maker and waited 'bout 10 mins for the whole thing to shut down. Once the clock shut off, I reset the time. Secondly, I pressed the on/off button and held it in for 2 seconds until the red light started flashing. I set H to 1 and M to 59(I have never seen this before). anyhoo, afterthat, I set the timer to the exact time I wanted to smell my freshly brewed coffee. This morning, the red light seemed to stay on and kept my coffee nice and hot.
First, turn the Function Knob (bottom-left of the Control Panel) to “Clock”.
Hours: Press and hold the “HR” button to go through the numbers quickly. When the number displayed approaches the desired setting, release and press(pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time.
Note: When the number passes 12, the PM light will be displayed on the LCD.
Minutes: Press and hold the “MIN” button to go through the numbers quickly. When the number displayed approaches the desired setting, release and press (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time.
To finish setting time, turn the Function to any setting other than "Clock", or simply wait until the numbers stop blinking.
