I think this is the right model #, my vision is not that good. I
am diabled and the clock is a great tool for me, however, it
keepsjumping an hour ahead. Is it a daylight savings thing, or
what. I have restet it three times today-get it set perfectly,
hang it up, and within 5 min. it is an hour ahead. Help!
For any Equity clock, press and hold down the Alarm Set button. First the year will flash, if you don't care about the year, press the Alarm Set button again, if you do care about the year, press the arrow button (it could be an UP/DOWN arrow or a side arrow which is usually used to change from Centrigrade to Fahrenheit). Basically, you begin by pressing and holding the Alarm Set button, then you use the arrow buttons, then again press Alarm Set to go to the next thing you want to set. If you wait too long, it will not set it, so begin again. I do this all the time, esp when DST occurs as the clock, when manufactured did not have the rules for the new DST time.

Press and hold the "Alarm Set"
button for five to seven seconds if you have an Insta-Set 40001, 44100
or 44200 model; the year will begin to blink when the clock is ready for
adjustment. If you have an Insta-Set 40009 or 40018, hold the "DST"
button for five to seven seconds (until the hour begins to blink).
Set the year by pressing the right-arrow, "Up" or "+" button, depending on your model of clock.
Set the month, day, hour and
minute. Press the "Alarm Set" or "DST" button to cycle through each
field, and use the "Up," "+" or right-arrow button to adjust the values
within each field.
Press the "Alarm Set" or "DST" button after setting the date and time to store the information into your clock's memory.
First, move the slide switch at the left rear of the top of the unit all the way to the right. You'll see the colon blinking, indicating that you are in 'set' mode. Now turn the dial that surrounds the ON/OFF button on the top of the unit. You can move it clockwise or counterclockwise, to change the time forward or backward. When done, move the slide switch back to the far left. Done.

Important Notice About Daylight Saving Time (DST) and
Emerson SmartSet® Clocks and Clock Radios
Congress recently passed a new Energy Bill which includes a provision to extend Daylight Savings Time. At the beginning of 2007, Daylight Savings time will begin on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November. Because of this change your SmartSet® Clock or Clock Radio will need to be updated.
In order to set your unit we will need the following information from you:
1. Model Number
You can find your model number on the back or bottom of your unit.
(Click here for an example)
2. Serial Number
You can find your serial number on the back or bottom of your unit. (Click here for an example)
Based on this information we can identify which setting is necessary to adjust your unit for compliance with day light savings. There are three possible groups your SmartSet® Clock or Clock Radio could fall into: Group One changes the time zone to a previous time zone.
Group Two adjusts for the spring and fall settings.
Group Three is already set for 2007 daylight savings compliance.
Group identification begins with your serial number. The first three to four digits of the serial number represent the year and month of manufacture. (If your serial number begins with 0607, that would indicate July 2006, 506 would indicate June 2005.)
Models manufactured before January 2006 (serial number 506, 512, etc.) will follow Group One settings.
Models manufactured between January 2006 and July 2006 (serial number 0601, 0603, etc.) will follow Group Two settings.
Models manufactured after July 2006 (serial numbers beginning with 0608) are Group Three and do not require any changes.
If you believe you have a Group One model, please click here.
If you believe you have a Group Two model, please click here.
If you cannot determine which Group your model may be in, please call us at 1-800-526-7521.
