My weather radio does not warn me when there is a warning or a watch. The only time it goes off is when it does the weekly test, or some unknown message. It has been doing this for several months, and recently, there was a flash flood watch, and it did not go off, even though I had it enabled.
You may have programmed the wrong county code...check out http://www.weather.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm#sametable and double check the code you have in your clock. If you have the correct code programmed, double check your "defeat siren" preferences...although it looks like you have already checked that.

FIPS are 5 digit codes..the 1st two codes are for the state: the last three are for the county. This link allows you to find both state and county for your area: http://www.epa.gov/enviro/html/codes/state.html
1- Turn over
your Seth Thomas digital clock. Use your finger to remove the cover to
the unit's battery compartment. Insert two AA-size alkaline batteries
into the battery compartment and replace the cover. Certain Seth Thomas
digital clock units will also have an optional alternate power source in
the form of a standard AC power cable that plugs into a wall outlet in
2 Place your Seth Thomas
solar-powered digital clock in front of a light source, such as on a
window sill or beneath a lamp. The black strip on the top of the unit is
the solar sensor, so as long as light is shining down on that strip,
your clock will be powered on and ready to use. The sensor stores energy
throughout the day so that it can work at night with no direct light
contact on the sensor.
3 Press the time zone button that
indicates your current time zone. These buttons are located on the back
of the unit. For example, if you are in the eastern time zone select the
"EST" button. Turn the unit back over. It will now be displaying the
correct time on its digital screen.
4 Use the "Alarm" switch (if
applicable) to enable and disable the clock's alarm. Press the "Alarm"
button, followed by the "Hour" and "Minute" buttons, to set the
appropriate alarm time based on your needs. Use the "Alarm HI LO" switch
to set the volume for the alarm.
5 Press the "Weather" button to
tune your Seth Thomas digital clock to its built-in local weather radio
station (if applicable). Certain Seth Thomas clocks have this radio
weather functionality built in, while others don't. If yours does, the
aforementioned "Weather" button will be located on the front of the
There is no way to turn off beeping. From this site: http://www.chaneyinstruments.com/FAQ.aspx found solution - Q: My wireless weather station periodically beeps, why?
A: Make sure that any alert and/or alarm features are deactivated first.
Constant, sporadic beeping is generally due to the unit's ability to
detect a foreign radio frequency of another wireless unit when that unit
transmits a signal. Wireless devices that may cause beeping but are not
limited to these devices are; scanners; computers w/wireless
keyboard/mouse; or other wireless weather instruments. Essentially, any
wireless devices transmitting on a radio frequency have the potential to
interfere with each other. Limit the amount of wireless devices to
lesson the chance of interference. When beeping occurs, one device will
need to be deactivated.
Another external temp gauge showed up on the other channel, so my neighbor or someone is using the similar unit. MY SOLUTION: opened back of case and cut black wire to piezo speaker (at base if rear cover opposite side of stand-up prop) that creates beep. ALL good now.
I actually have the same problem with an older model Brookstone weather station with remote temperature gauge. The time/date settings do not allow you to set time zone and eventually the clock syncs to PST.... ANY HELP HERE?
I don't know if it work for everybody, but, I took out three of the batteries, then unplugged the radio and plugged it back in. That just left the bottom light blinking, I then pressed the power button on and back off. I had to reset time and date, but it got rid of the flashing lights.
I had the same problem...I removed the clock from the power source and took out all the batteries. I then put them all back in and plugged it back up. The lights stopped flashing! I did have to reprogram the date and time but all the county codes and defeated siren preferences were saved! Definately worth it.
