How to stop clock ticking

Hi, I'm about to move into a house with an Frigadaire Compact 30 stove, it has the clock/timer in the rear left corner. The clock ticks every second. I want to stop the ticking even if it disables the clock. Can I? Thank you, Diana

    The power source(plug?) is hidden I think, it's an old stove anchored in by old tiles, I can't get behind it. Can I still do it?

It isn't that hard to get the clock to stop ticking.

Disconnect power to stove so that you do not get a shock.

Take off back panel screws behind the clock.

disconnect the wires to the clock.

Make sure that the wires are not touching anything metal. If they are not insulated, you will want to tape them.

Do not use the hammer to the dial method to get the clock to stop. It is fast but may cause damage.

Hi there. Our Moffat stoveModel 24K60 has been in service since 1966, and, with a few minor service calls is still ticking along. No pun intended, but that's the problem. The clock is not only...


Hello there schematics for your unit will be next to impossible to find on the internet. My guess is that your unit uses a manual type timer as units that old usually have the timer independent of the other functions of the unit.therefore you wont be able to find any wires which power the unit. Mostly the timer will run on its own as a result of sensors on the unit. Both options which you have considered are gud but lubricating the bearings seems more likely although getting at it might be a bit difficult what you need is a watch expert usually they have methods of loosing out the entire clock mechanism taking it for servicing and fixing it back on your unit this way the bearing noise will stop. Also if you decide to take of the clock completely the same procedure applies.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have a Stoves double oven and after a power cut the clock has stopped working and the main oven is not working either. the clock is completely off. the small top oven is still working though. what can...


The clock controls the ovens. In other words, directly you set any time on the clock, a contact operates within it to provide power to the ovens. (Normally the grill remains operational). You may need a new clock/timer. Before you do so, try switching the power off at the main isolating switch and leaving it off for a few mins, then switching it back on, to try to get the clock to operate. You may need to do this a few times.
Normally Stoves stick a label identifying the model on the left hand edge of the lower oven. You see this when you lower the main oven door. it will probably start with a 05 and be 9 digits long. With this number you can identify the oven and obtain parts.

Moffat Stove with a self-cleaning oven. I would like to know how to clean the oven using the "self cleaning" feature


hi there! I have a moffat stove and hopefully these instructions help you.
First clear out the racks in your oven. Take them out and remove any excess chunks at the bottom.
Then close your oven door and lock it by pulling the lock latch.
Now looking at your oven knobs [not your burner knobs] turn both of them so they are both on the arrow knob [your oven knobs should have small pictures on them and both should have arrows]
Now you need to set the time so in the middle of your oven their should be a timer and one start and stop timer on top of each other. Both timers go in increments of half an hour. So if you are starting your self cleaner at 3 move the dial to 3 or if you are starting at 3:30 move the dial to one tick after 3. Once you set your start timer, you need to set your stop timer.
Setting your stop timer, it is recommended to set it for 3-5 hours. I set mine for 4 hours. So then set stop timer to time you want the cleaning to be. If you set your start timer at 3:30 put your stop timer at 7:30.
The oven will start cleaning according to the time you set. The oven will get very hot. I recommend to not used the burners as the temperature goes to 500 degrees! You will smell an odor and that is your oven cleaning.... Hope this helps...

Without knowledge of the particular clock, try holding the start timer (I->) and duration timer (->I) buttons at the same time, then pressing time advance (+). This should set the clock at 1 minute past 00:01. Good luck

Does yours have the timer/clock thing that stands at the rear left of the stove? If so, make sure the far right dial is set at Manual. I had a repair person come out once (luckily it was someone I knew who didn't charge me) because my oven quit working. He turned the dial to manual and presto! :)
