Setting the clock on a Lamona oven - UNDERSTANDING YOUR BRITISH DAD #BRITISHDAD


- Setting the clock on a Lamona oven -

changing the time on a howdens kitchen lamona oven, or set the clock

Here’s how to change the clock on a Lamona oven.

Hold down the first two buttons on the left,

then keep holding those 2 buttons down while you use the + or - buttons to set the time.

Here's a badly shot video!




It's not funny and by the time you see this, it’s probably not much use to you either.

But at least I know where I can find the answer now.


I get at least 10 hits per day from people searching for this.
You must all have Howdens Kitchens.

Also - don't think the Lamona oven works until the clock has been set...

Leave me a comment if it helped!

-- this is an old post now, so I have to approve each comment, which sometimes takes a day --- sorry about that - it looks like your comment didn't get through.
I do get all your comments though, and I do approve them, just didn't want you to think they're being ignored.

By the way, I blog here most days, all about - Understanding Your British Dad. (there's no manual for that, either).

  2. You're welcome! only just remembered now that the lamona oven doesn't work until the clock is set which explains the hits I get for "lamona oven stopped working"!

    1. haha - think its a GOOD question - We don't know the correct (safe) Lamona/Howdens answer, but we do close the oven door when we're using the grill.

      I think if we left it open the heat would melt the plastic buttons and knobs

  13. Many thanks, but had to release 2 left hand buttons after clock logo appeared, then use +/- to set.

    Regards,

    1. Yes I found this too... I don't know what model oven is in my new flat but the LED clock is a menacing red colour!

  14. Ah thanks for the update -- Lamona technology has probably taken a huge leap forward.

    Meanwhile the silver paint has fallen off our timer button.

    Like we use it that much.

    Thanks so much for sorting that out for us. The last electric cut resulted in Dad and myself in a random button pressing exercise. Now we have the answer. Great idea with it all on video.
    Owe you a pint!
    Cheers Mark

  19. Thanks! I moved into a house with a Lamona oven, and could not work out how to reset the clock after a power cut. Whose stupid idea was it to disable the oven entirely unless the clock is set?

    ReplyDelete
  20. My pleasure! It's barmy, isn't it...
    One day at Lamona someone sat down and decided that their ovens wouldn't work without the clock...

  21. You can always request a copy of the instruction manual from any of the 530+ Howdens branches in the country - they are in every large town.

  22. I always forget how to do this! Lol thanks! :-)

  24. Thank you, your site came up as the second Google link

  25. Thank you! This saved my bacon (literally lol ) after a brief power cut. Have bookmarked this page as am bound to need it again and yes it is a Howden kitchen. Was here when I moved in and I am sure it was this site that helped me get the cooker clock on so I'm could turn on the darn oven : )
