This STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I left the key on my wright on and it only had like 7 hours when I did it. And now it was 70 hours all of which was the key being on lol. Anybody know how to turn back the hours or do I need to get a new hour meter since its only a couple hours. Cause if I wait to long Ill be knocking off to many hours. What do yall suggest?

Put it back in the box and return it. Or just run it up to 1000 then swap the clock and sell it.

I'd see if you can't find a way to clear the meter you have....if not, just install the new one (if you buy one) and leave the key on for 7 hrs.
Make sure you set an alarm on your watch or phone tho, if you don't you risk being right back in the same boat.
