Need help to automate this machine

Hi maker community I would like to have some help with this machine, it has only a program of 1 hour and it stops itself then someone needs to reboot the machine to start another program for another hour usually it takes 3 hour to complete the preparation.
I would like to make a bot to active a machine at a specific time and refresh the clock to add more time using the capacitive pad.
I have raspberry pis, ESP8266 and a EPS32 and no much of programming skills, I would like to know what would be the fastest way to solve this issue.
