Convection Steam Oven (Touch Control) Mains Synchronization and Clock


  • Convection Steam Oven says Switch Mains Synchronization On/Off
  • What does the CSO Mains Synchronization mean?
  • Should the CSO Mains Synchronization be on or off?


The mains synchronization is part of the clock setting menu on the Convection Steam Oven.

  • When mains synchronization is on, the frequency of the power supply drives the clock.
  • Mains synchronization should be on, unless there is a power supply issue, which will cause the clock to keep poor time.

To turn mains synchronization on or off:

1. Touch Settings twice. The Set Language screen appears.
2. Touch the right arrow key to move to Set Clock.
3. Touch Enter. The Set Time screen appears.
4. Use the arrow keys to underline Switch Mains Synchronization on or off.
  • Mains synchronization determines what frequency source powers the clock.
  • The frequency is being provided by the home electrical supply when a clock with a plug is shown above the Maine synchronization icon.
  • The frequency is being provided by the unit when a clock with a computer chip is shown above the Mains Synchronization icon.
5. Touch Enter to toggle between mains synchronization by the home or the unit.
6. Use the arrow keys to move to Back.
7. Touch Enter to return to the Settings screen.

TIP: High or low frequency can cause the clock to run slow or fast. If there is an issue with the unit maintaining correct time, try turning the mains synchronization off.
