The Delayed Start feature automatically turns the Convection Steam Oven (CSO) on and off at specified times.

  • CSO will stay idle until desired start time and will turn off at desired time.
  • If the temperature probe is used, the probe will override the shut-off time and turn the oven off if the set temperature is reached before the shut-off time.
    • The probe feature will only override the shut-off time if the probe setpoint temperature is reached before the shut-off time.
    • If the probe temperature is NOT reached before the shut-off time, the unit will turn off at the selected shut-off time.
    • Probe feature will not extend the operating time past the selected shut-off time if the set temperature has not been reached.
  • The time of day clock must be set to the correct time in order for the Delayed Start feature to work correctly. See also, Delayed Start Feature.
