London Clock Co radio controlled second hand doesn't work

I recently purchased a London Clock Co radio controlled analogue clock. The second hand moves to 12 when I first insert the batteries. The time then sets itself correctly. However the second hand stays on the 12 permanently. The clock keeps good time. The instructions are brief and unclear - lost somewhat in translation I think! Clock ref is LC36033. I am based in the U.K.

I have a mantle clock version and to set the clock to recognize the radio signal, I need to hold down both the ET and PT time zone buttons for a few seconds. The clock hands will then continue to move until they reset themselves to the correct time.

SOURCE: Radio controlled clock won't set

I'm sorry to hear that.

It sounds like no pulse signal is being received by the clock then. This can only mean the transmitter site has a long term problem, which is unlikely. Or your clock's receiver is faulty. Sorry, cannot offer any other suggestion. You could just leave it running, it may pick up a pulse eventually and get back on track. I guess there is nothing to lose in trying, except a couple of batteries.
Take care now!

these really aren't atomic clocks and are set at the factory. It receives, it's LF signal out of Colorado and should correct itself. If not contact the manufacturer.

Hello


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each

hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
Ok.

The second hand on our LaCrosse atomic clock has stopped moving but the clock continues to keep perfect time. How do we get the second hand turning again?


The manual for one of their clocks says the clock will change the second hand to two-second intervals to conserve energy when the battery voltage gets low. Perhaps your battery is VERY low.

It looses time and the radio controlled feature does not bring it back to the correct time. I put in a new battery and it still happens. It is a La Crosse Technology Radio Controlled clock Model:WT-3101

Resetting to daylight savings time.


The clock is searching for a strong enough radio signal from NIST station WWVB. When it can't lock on it, it gives up, moves the dial four hours, and goes to sleep to wait for better reception. Put the clock in a window facing towards Boulder, CO, overnight. (Radio propagation is better after dark.)
