Question about Chaney Instrument 13130 GM Atomix Digital Clock

Open Question

Stove Clock runs fast

I used to panel on my stove to set the temp for the oven, and then the timer, to bake a cake. After the cake was done, and the oven turned off, the clock, which is part of the panel began to run fast. It continues to do so, by at a half hour every hour. Any ideas why? And it is something I can correct?

It's a Magic Chef, gas stove. I had the whole panel mechanism replaced about a year ago. BTW, that was the second time in five years that I had to replace it.

It doesn't affect stove-top burners, or the working of the oven.

SOURCE: My digital alarm clock is fast

I'm not on this field of expertise but I could try giving you some tips. These cloks work by dividing the natural oscilations of a quartz cristal in the corresponding way to form "1 second". A quartz cristal like the one in your clock will oscilate at about 14080236 times per second. Your clock uses a specialised chip in order to count these oscilations and know they form "1 second". However, the problem is the following. These clocks doesn't compensate for frequency variation over the mains power line. You should always look firts at it's power ratings and determine if it requires 50Hz or 60Hz. Even if you use an adaptor to raise/lower the tension from 110 to 220 v or viceversa, this woun't correct the problem as the adaptor will leave the frequency unchanged. Unfortunately in order to make the required adjustments you woun't need a resistor or capacitor, but a whole bunch of them in order to make a frequency divider-convertor that's stable enough to give your clock a fixed time reference. One more thing, not all components have exactly the parameters noted on them. There's another thing called Tolerance. A 1Kilo Ohm resistor with 10% tolerance (most comon tolerance) can have any value with +/- 10% of it's noted parameters, and in this example, could have any value between 900 ohm - 1100 ohm. These clocks will need components with a very strict tolerance in order to have an acurate time reference. Note that they aren't atomic clocks, they simply use a larger chip that includes most of the clock, time reference, frequency analyser and divider. An atomic clock doesn't use quartz cristals, instead it relies on the natural oscilations of the very precise Cesium izotope atom. The rest of the atomic clock is made up in a similar way as usual clocks (more fixed and small tolerance of course :) ).

My clock does not work on my stove


Hi Jason. Have you performed the following actions?
Electronic Timing Center (Analog Clock w/Digital Display)
Synchronizing the analog and digital clocks
1. Press the "timer" and "start time" buttons simultaneously.
2. Turn the set knob to move the hands on the analog clock to any time setting.
3. After five seconds the display will go blank. Press the timer button and using the set knob, set the digital time to the exact time on the analog clock. This will synchronize the two clocks. You can now set the time of day.
Setting the Time-of-Day
The time-of-day must be set before any other program can be used. When your oven is first connected to the power in your home, the digital display will show 00:00. To program the time-of-day:
1. Push and hold the "timer" and "bake hours" button at the same time.
2. Turn the "Set" knob until correct time is displayed on the digital clock.
3. Release "timer" and "bake hours" button
The analog clock will automatically set after the digital time is set

Let me know so that I may follow up if need be.

Have oven model no. 6KA0100, installed in our new home eleven years ago. Wife complains oven takes long time to reach set temp. I note that the oven door is always slightly ajar at top as compared to...


I would say your stove is old and the door closer springs are burnt out and shot. Yes if the door is open even a little bit the stove will not heat up. If the temp is not right the cakes will not bake right. Get a new one. or get a repair person to fix it. It will keep your wife happy.

Icant change the time on my stoves HAP0050 ELECTRIC OVEN,any ideas Thanks


In most cases. Simply press the appropriate button for the feature you want to access, and then use the "+" and "-" buttons to increase and decrease the number values. For example, to set the clock, press the "Clock" button, followed by the "Time/Temp" button; use the "+" and "-" buttons to set the clock to the desired time. When you are finished, press the "Start" button to save your setting. Use the same process to set the oven temperature and timer.

Need to set clock on oven


Instructions
    • 1

      Check the oven to ensure that it is off and that the timer isn't running. The buttons used to set the clock are the same buttons that adjust the oven, and you may end up making unintended adjustments to the oven.

    • 2

      Press the "Clock" button to enter the clock setting mode. The LCD will show the current time set on the oven.

    • 3

      Use the "Set Temp/Time +" or "Set Temp/Time -" buttons to adjust the clock to the current time. Depending on your model of stove you may need to use the "Hour," "Min" or the "Temp/Hour" up and down arrow buttons to set the time.

    • 4

      Save the new clock setting by pressing the "Start" button. Depending on your stove model, you may need to press the "Clock" button a second time if the "Start" button does not work.

Things bake unevenly. Cakes get brown on edges


first make sure you are not blocking a rack.air needs to circulate from the bottom to the top.never cover a rack with tin foil or a large pan. if alls good you may have a temperature problem.check temp if its off raise oven temp as high as it goes hold bake button untill it beeps it will display 0 go up to raise temp up down to lower you can only adjust 35 deg.Good luck!

When my kenmore stove is on and im ready to bake the oven turns on and off every 20 minutes and my cakes come out flatten. i think it needs to be set up and i don't know how to do it.


oven should heat up to your set tempt and hold it within 5 to 15 deg of your setting . ck the door seal . or it may have a bad electrical connection . if it just started this it may be electrical if if a long timer and getting worse the ( door seal ) .. may the the oven relay on the clock is burnt out . that would require the clock to be replaced .. ****

Water spilled down the stove top causing the oven


ater spilled (4-5 cups) on the stove top running down into the stove control panel face (where you view oven temp, timer, etc). No water ever dripped into the oven or oven window. The stove top still works but the oven, warming drawer, clock are all non responsive after three days. No buttons on the control panel work at all. What repair is needed?
