Had my Prolex oven a week now all was well until tonight when I messed up, its something that could catch anyone out.

The timer is clockwork if you are setting any time less than 10 min it may not work if you just turn it to the time, above ten minutes it seems fine.

I guess the spring needs winding up I believe its best to turn well past the time needed then turn it back to the time you want.
Make certain its ticking, I just set something for 5 minutes and the timer failed, they oven was on till I remembered to check.
Cremated sausages thankfully no fire.

Hi Dave 101 and welcome

Welcome

Some mechanical timers are very poor under 10 minutes - my 7 litre HO was like that, my 12 litre one is pretty accurate. For shorter times it's best to use a more accurate kitchen timer.

To compliment my HO, I bought a beautiful sleek, white, digital timer........from Poundland and it's great!

I have owned a Lloytron 12ltr Oven for the last 2 weeks but I'm still scared to use it! The manual for this model E4701 warns me NOT to turn the clockwork timer anti-clockwise as this will damage the timer. If the timer is set for too long it instructs me to wait for the timer to naturally count down to the time required. I wonder if this is the same with most halogen timers? I am a pensioner with a terrible memory so I have put a warning sticker on the lid! Are there other important Not To Do's that I should be aware of? ThanQ HOR Forum just for being here - Islaymac

You are welcome Islaymac Smile

That is true for the timer. Do not turn it anti clockwise

Other DON'Ts:

1. Do not clean the lid with a metal scouring pads. Pieces of the pad may break off and touch electrical parts creating risk of electrical shock. Will also damage the element/bulb

2. Do not pour cold water directly into a hot halogen oven bowl , it may crack. Let it cool down first

Hi to all. Found this forum quite by chance and already I can see what a great help it will be. I've had my JML for a few months and so far have only cooked chickens and a few veg in it. Very pleased indeed with the result though. Now I want to be a bit more adventurous and try baking cakes and pies etc. Really excited as I'd like to do away with my conventional cooker completely. Very Happy feedme
