But I was unable to get it to stay reset. Each time I reset the clock and then tried to set the timer it went back to 12:00, blinking.
It's odd but this upset me a lot. I almost felt like crying. It isn't as if we can't easily manage without the timer, but it really bothers me that it does not work. I have taken good care of the coffee maker, bought it new a few years ago, so it isn't all that old but it's past its warranty period.
I even woke during the night, thinking of it, and got up early this morning to see if I could hunt down any troubleshooting sections in the printed literature - no, nothing in it about that. I went to the Braun web site, was not able to get to the "services" page. Looked at web sites that have parts - they didn't have that.
