It’s time to ‘spring forward’ and change our clocks to mark the beginning of spring. Hoorah!
Is there anything better than the spring clocks change? Yes, we lose an hour, but think of all those extra hours of daylight we’ll be gaining. Ah, what will we do with all those sweet light hours? (and hopefully some sunshine too!)
But before we start dreaming, we must remember to actually change our clocks first! As well as watches, phones, TVs and everything else in the clock-changing ritual, it’s important not to forget about the clocks on our household appliances either. And we’ve got just the thing to help you…
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. Different brands have different ways of setting the clock. Here we’ve put together some videos to help you:
For guidance on changing the clocks on different oven makes, refer to your user manual. Misplaced your manual? Not to worry, you can download it from the eSpares website.
What would we do without our microwaves? They make fast meals, a mean beans on toast and help us tell the time when we’re in a rush! So, make sure yours has the correct time by putting the clock forward this spring.
Again, different brands have different ways of doing this, so check your user guide or download it for reference.
Here we have a couple of videos for Kenwood and Sharp microwaves that might help you.
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 it for appliance clocks, but there are plenty more household clocks to keep on top of! Let’s face it, there’s always one that we forget to change (ahem, car). Check out our blog which includes all the clocks you need to change so you’re never an hour late for work again. Yep, we’ve all been there!
