Question about Smeg A42-5 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

The clock and timer unit fails to display. You can get the display back on by pressing the fascia hard. Replacements are £174 and I've now had three in 5 years. Any solutions or access to cheaper spares?

Same problem here. Pressing hard on the fascia worked for a bit, but now fails to work.

The thing I've noticed is that the whole section above the grill gets extremely hot when the grill is used, i.e. the panel with all the dials and the clock. I don't remember this always being the case, so I'm wondering if some heat dispersal mechanism (a fan perhaps?) has failed over the years... effectively causing the clock's electronics to get cooked. You've had three clock modules in five years?!

How do I set the clock on my Panasonic SA-Ak270 mini stereo


The main unit is the SA-AK270. The entire mini-system is called the SC-AK270. The manual is available on the Panasonic support site: https://www.panasonic.com/au/support/manual-download/audio/hi-fi/sc-ak270.html . You do need to accept the Panasonic terms of use to download the manual. The check box is below the box with the Manual description and View link. The clock setting procedure is shown on page 14 (with the remote). The pictures of the remote control and main unit buttons are on pages 8-9 of the manual.

With the remote, press the Clock/Timer button until the Display is showing the time. Press Skip Back/Rewind or Skip Forward/Fast Forward within 8 seconds of pressing Clock/Timer to set the hour. Press Clock/Timer again and use the same Rewind/Fast Forward buttons to set the minutes. Note: the SC-AK270 uses a 24-hour clock.

You can also do this by starting with the Display button on the main unit. Then use the Skip Back/Rew and Skip Forward/Fast Forward buttons on either side of the Manual Eq button.

I hope this helps.

Replacement timer motor needed


If you have Intermatic timer, then clock motors are available for most hard-wire box-type timers. Most pool and spa timer modules are available or have same/similar replacements. If you have plug-in timer, including power pack or portable outdoor timer or indoor plug-in or in-wall timer, then no clock motors are available.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html

If you have Tork timer, then clock motor is available for 1100 series.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html
If you have Paragon timer, clock motors will be hard to find
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html
If you have other brands of timer, then clock motors are not available except Deihl, DIGI and Grasslin timer modules, but post brand and model number of timer so I can search my files.

Turn the system on and press the "Clock/Timer" button (located above the eject button for Deck 1). The clock will appear. To change the time, simply hold down either the < or > buttons (the ones you use to change radio stations and begin CD/tape playback). Press "Clock/Timer" again to lock in the time.
