Spacersaver Model 7-4285 the clock is changing the minutes in 45 to 50 seconds so in time it will be hours ahead were it should be. How do I fix it to change the minute in 60 second rather than 45...

It's not clear how 'digital' the clock really is sincet hey don't really post the minutae about these things. Could just be the display. If you put your ear against it and hear a hum, there's a motor. As long as the line voltage is +-10% most electronics will do just fine. Line frequency only affects AC motors. That it has a frequency spec is telling. If the motor was DC they'd get away with 50-60hz.

How do you set the alarm?

I couldn't find a manual for this model, but you might be able to get information from the manufacturer. This information is from the GE site here:

In 1987 GE sold its home electronics business to ThomsonĀ®, Inc. For a time, ThomsonĀ® produced many products that carried the GE name, but now only manufactures telephone and communications products.

The items that they support but no longer manufacture include:

  • Audio products
  • Camcorder
  • Cassette recorder
  • CD player
  • Clock radio
  • Spacemaker radio
  • Spacemaker TV
  • Television
  • Video camera
For assistance with any of these older products or your current GE telephone products please call 1-800-447-1700 in the US. In Canada, call 1-800-522-0338 (English) or 1-800-522-0445 (French).

Thomson, Inc.

Try calling the phone number listed. They might be able to supply you with a copy of the manual. Hope this helps a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

FM/AM GE Digital clock radio model#7-4966 display bulb burned out

Geri, I recently had the same problem with my GE model 7-4966 clock radio. The radio manual states that there is a spare bulb included and stored on the underside of the battery compartment door on the bottom of the clock radio. To replace the bulb: 1. Twist the bulb bar handle on the underside of the radio to unlock and remove the holder. 2. Carefully pull the bulb out of the holder and replace with the spare bulb. 3. Place the holder back in place, twist the bar handle to the right to "lock" the bulb holder in position.
In case you can't find a spare bulb, the manual states "use only a GE259 or equivalent 6.3 volt, wedge base bulb. A clerk at Radio Shack told me she could get a replacement bulb.

I have a skyscan atomic clock, model 88900. I've absoltely LOVED it until the outside temperature quit being displayed. I have changed the batteries 2x's according to the instructions and have used NEW...

This is a very common problem that is most frequently caused by the outdoor transmitter going bad. They are surprisingly delicate and don't like getting wet.

You can order replacement transmitters from

They only cost $11 and that includes shipping and handling.
