The 3 appliance clocks you'll probably forget to change

The clocks may change at the same time twice a year, but remembering to change all the clocks around your household isn’t always so simple. Adjusting the time on our phones and watches is easy enough, but some of the other appliances in our homes… not so much!

That being said, even if you do remember to change the clocks on every appliance you own, some can be trickier to figure out than others. Read on to learn how to change the clocks on your household appliances and keep them all ticking at the right time!


Close Up Of Clock On Oven
Don’t underestimate the clock on your oven! Sometimes, when your oven has stopped working, it can be entirely down to the clock not being set. (Top tip – check this before you start taking your faulty oven apart!)

Remember to add your oven to your clock changing routine. Below we have a video demonstrating how to change the clock on an electric oven to give you some guidance. However, some makes and models of ovens differ to others… but fortunately, we also have a playlist of clock-changing videos that includes guides on changing the time for Belling, Stoves, Lamona and Bosch ovens too! So, if your oven is one of these makes, our playlist will help you adjust the clock in no time.

For guidance on changing the clocks on different oven makes, you can also refer to your user manual. Misplaced your manual? Not to worry, you can download it from the eSpares website.


Person Changing Clock On Microwave

What would we do without our microwaves? Not only do they make fast and easy meals, they also help us tell the time when we’re in a rush! So, make sure your microwave has the correct time by putting the clock forward this spring.

Our appliance clock-changing playlist includes video guides for changing the time on Kenwood, Sharp, Samsung, CDA, Russell Hobbs and Morphy Richards microwaves. Here’s a guide on adjusting the clock on a Sharp microwave to get you started…

Alternatively, if your brand of microwave isn’t included in our playlist, you can always check your user guide or download it for further help.


Smart Fridge With SmartPhone

If you have one of those snazzy fridges that tells you what’s on your shopping list (lucky you!) be sure to change the clock so it can continue to sync with your phone. You don’t want to be running out of eggs any time soon! This is pretty straight forward and similar to your smartphone, but check the user manual just to be sure.

That’s all there is to changing the clocks on your appliances! See, it isn’t so bad after all. However, there are plenty of other ways to keep on top of your home appliances too. If they’re are getting a bit noisy, for example, check out our blog post on how to fix household appliances that go bump in the night so you can keep them from disturbing you… no matter the time!
