The fix for my problem was to remove the oven/microwave combo unit, and press the reset button on the back of the microwave. Oh yeah, and to write a $75 check for a 10 minute service call.
You want to try the fix for yourself? You have to remove all of the face screws holding the unit in place. There are 4 on the microwave front and 6 in the oven, 3 down each side, inside the lip where the door is. You must remove the door to get to the bottom ones. You don't have to remove the screws holding the plastic insert in place between the micro & oven, but you might want to remove the metal lip on the bottom of the oven to help prevent scratches to the cabinet. After that's done, get a helper and pull the unit most of the way out, then rotate a little to the left. That will expose the reset button on the back, right side of the microwave.

What you said about the the clock leads me to suggest that you first unplug it for a few minutes then plug it back in. It may just need a good reset. If you don't have your owner's manual you can download one here: http://www.lge.com/support/manual.jsp The mention of odor concerns me. It may just be a bit of food or grease on the waveguide cover, which is a small sheet or panel on the wall or ceiling of the cooking cavity, but it may indicate the failure of a part in the high voltage section. You may have an intermittent door switch. You can see some of my other responses for info on how to get our important text file that helps you diagnose and repair door switches and gives important safety tips.

Chances are your thermistor is defective.
This UK model is probably similar to the US model R-930 or R-820.
We have both service manuals at our site and while the part numbers will not necessarily be the same, they will be handy for safety, disassembly and troubleshooting. They are here and here.
When you're ready to order parts, visit Sharp UK for spares dealers and servicers.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Chances are you have a bad thermistor (internal temperature sensor).
Your owner's manual should have a number or Web address for Westpoint customer service.
They should be able to tell you where you can locate an authorized servicer or parts.

After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.
