If you call Dacor they will talk you through the solution but you have to have another person ready to turn the breaker off while someone is pushing a button. I have contacted them and am trying to get the instructions emailed.

    There have been some occurrences where the Time readout has been in a 24 hour
    Military Time Format. In addition, there are also instances where the clock is set for a 50
    HZ operational mode causing the readout to gain time.
    If either of these situations occur please perform the following to reset the ERC for proper
    Two persons are required the reset function. The first person should be at the power panel
    (circuit breaker box) and the second person should be at the oven.
    1. Turn the circuit breaker for the oven.
    2. While the power is off, the person at the oven should press and hold the "Clock "
    3. The circuit breaker should then be turned on while the "Clock" button is still depressed.
    Continue to hold the "Clock" button until a single digit number appears. You may then
    release the button.
    4. Using the "Time-Temp" arrow keys, adjust the number in the display to read the digit
    "8", and release button.
    5. After approximately 15 seconds, the time of day will appear.
    6. Set the clock to the correct time of day by following the instructions in the owner's

How do I change from military to 12 hour format on the time display of the Sharp Atomic Weather Station SPC1003

Resetting: 1. Remove batteries from both the outdoor transmitter and the Temperature station. 2. Wait at least 30 seconds and then repeat the procedures specified in Setting up (above). Note: Always wait at least 30 seconds after removing the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up and transmission problems may occur. Also, remember when insertting, that both units have to reset and to always reinsert the batteries to the transmitter first

    • 1 Insert the batteries into the clock and verify that the clock's display is functioning.
    • 2 Set the correct time-zone and Daylight Saving Time (DST) switches. The switches are on the back of the clock. Select EST if you are in Eastern Standard Time, CST if you are in Central Standard Time, MST if you are in Mountain Standard Time, or PST if you are in Pacific Standard Time. The DST selector should be set to "off" or "on" depending on the laws of your state.
    • 3 Wait 15 minutes. The clock should synchronize automatically.
    • 4 Set the clock manually using the buttons on the back panel if the clock does not catch the radio signal within the first 15 minutes. Push the correct button to advance the month/day/year on the calendar; use the MODE button to set the hour and minute.
    • 5 The clock should adjust itself within 48 hours to match the atomic signal. Verify that the clock is receiving the signal by checking the front display. You should see the image of a tower with circular lines at its top.

How do i change from military time on a insta-set alarm model 40009?

This may or may not work. The 40009 and 40010 are almost identical. The 40009 doesn't mention military time and the 40010 does, so you might want to what the manual says. 40010 manual and 40009 manual. According the 40010 manual, is says:

Displaying the12/24 hour, Date, Month and Year:
Display the 12/24 hour by hold the "+" button for 2 seconds. To display the date, month and year by press the "-" button, the year appears and then if pressed again, the month and date (eg. “12 31” means Dec 31) appears.

So maybe that will do. I have a 40010, but my manual is different from the one on the website. Its DST button and not Alarm Set button to change the time. So maybe try holding down different buttons for a couple of second see if one lets you change it between 12 and 24 hour. Good luck, hope this helps.

Rsd 30

I believe I followed the post by Rotu on11/11/06--remove the black grill surrounding the oven door latch (it's held on by 4 black phillips-head screws about 3" on either side of the latch). I had to use a flashlight to see into the space (there are a bunch of wires as I recall). In the middle several inches back you will see a small (about 3/8") red (mine had darkened) button. We used a screwdriver (be sure your circuit breaker is OFF) to reach it and push it down to reset. Replace the grill, turn on the breaker and you are good to go.
