Kenmore Range clock issue

I have a Kenmore range model #911.95969790. The clock is in 24 hour (military format) and I would like to change it to 12 hour format. I have contacted Sears and they were not able to help. I'm assuming because it is not in there manual. I know it is not in my manual either. I even took the range apart and found the manufacture of the circuit board (Robertshaw Control Company) They were not able to help either. They said it was designed by Sears and I would have to keep trying with them. So I'm stuck if you can help that would be great if you need more info please let me know.

That works, to change from military 24 hour to 12 hour format press and hold the clock button until it beeps and changes the displayed time, e.g. from 20:01 to 8:01. This worked on my Kenmore Elite Range. If you get the dreaded F1 error, you'll likely have to replace your clock timer board.

I looke this up and found to be a roper range, although im unable to find anything out in any manual ( roper tath is a bout a 24 hr clock feature) all are listed as 12 hr clock not showing am or pm.
jus for giggles did you try holding the clock button in for 3-5 secs. that usually toggles the clock display on/off. but you neverknow. and withouth knowing exactly what model roper range it actually is no way to look up that particular user guide. approx how old is it?? im sure you did but did you try disconnecting ppower to unit for a fdew momnets to perhaps reset the control??

Cant change clock from military to 12 hour

I don't know which brand or model your were talking about, but usually if you press and hold the clock button down, it will change from 12 hour to 24 hour (and back).

I have a kenmore electric range model #790.9414 and after setting the proper time and hitting start, the time display goes blank after a few seconds and must be restarted.

This is a "feature" imposed upon us by those energy-saving freaks and environmentalist-wackos. What you need to do is press and hold the clock button for 12 to 15 seconds. When you first press this button, the display will appear. Then in about 7 or 8 seconds it will disappear. Keep holding it for 12 to 15 seconds until it re-appears. Now if you release the clock button, it should remain on.

How do I set the 24 hour clock back to 12

Press 0 (Set up options) and then 4. Then press Auto Set (on the right of the clock) to change the setting. Then press any touch pad except Cancel to exit the setup menu and save the change. (Alternatively, press 0 and 9 followed by Auto Set and another key to return all features to the Default. 12-hour time is the default for the Jenn Air range.) Jenn Air has the manuals for most of their products on their support site, . I looked at the manual for the JES8850AAB which is available here: The information on setting the options is on page 12 (page 13 of the PDF). Note you'll need Adobe Reader or a similar program to access the manual.

I hope this helps.

Time is on military time how do i switch it back

Hi, from page 6 in the owners manual it says:

"Setting the CLOCK
1. Press CLOCK pad. Indicator word TIME
will flash in the display.
2. Press the appropriate number pads for
the current time. (Time is in a 12-hour
After a power interruption, the last clock time
before the interruption will flash."

The timer goes up to 99 hours and 59 minutes, maybe that is what your seeing.

Setting the delay on the oven

To correctly proceed you have to know the format the timer program is working in. SO you need to know
1Time format IE 12 hour AM - PM or 24 hr military time 2If a day, date is required M-Sun...or IE Sat 12th of March...(some times this is not a peramiter needed)

With the clock and calendar set the delay time should require a "timed mode setting" prior to being able to set the timer. Once in this mode you will have 1 of 3 ways to set the time delay depending on how the timer is set up to read your instructions. .
1 the actual time of day it is to start (set in actual clock time like the equalivant of 3:05 PM or if in military time, 24hr clock 15:05) or 2 the actual delay time until the program is set to start (again set in hours and minutes 2:10 = 2 hours and 10 minutes from now) 3 also is the stop time, when you want to program to end (also set in the format the timer is programed to recieve instructions)

Also the calendar could be waiting for input as to which day to start the program

Clock is in Military time...can't change it back...

If you call Dacor they will talk you through the solution but you have to have another person ready to turn the breaker off while someone is pushing a button. I have contacted them and am trying to get the instructions emailed.
