Skipping all the technical stuff, each FM broadcast channel is 0.2 MHz wide and starts on an even number. The lowest channel for example is, 87.8MHz - 88.0MHz. Radios will tune to the center channel, ie 87.9 MHz. Any FM station in the United States is always an odd number, therefore radios in the US will never tune to an even number
In generic terms, you need to change the zone or area to Europe (probably from US). Typically this is done via the menu function and looking for something like ZONE or AREA and then changing the setting to indicate EUROPE.

The time is automatically set 5 seconds after the minute adjustment. The time can also be manually set by pressing TITLE. • To synchronize the clock to another clock/watch or radio time announcement, press and hold MODE for at least 2 seconds after setting the “hour.” Minutes will reset to “00”. If the display shows over “30” minutes when you do this, the time will advance one hour.

This is a USA model and by default in the USA all FM stations end in an Odd number. This is completely normal. you can try holding preset 1 and 5 down while pressing the reset button on the unit and it may allow you to switch to a Europe style of tuning.
The 0.2MHz odd steps are standard for US radios.
Try resetting the radio (recessed button under the front panel)
If this a US radio then this may not help.
