    Tried removing batteries for one minute; clock did not reset irself to correct time. It is still four minutes slow. Do I need to replace batteries?

    Not a clock radio; just a clock with time zone settings. Also self corrects for DST.

How are you checking the accuracy?

  1. All "Atomic" timepieces have built-in radio receivers tuned to the World's Most Accurate Clock , the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Atomic Clock in Fort Collins, Colorado. At NIST a team of atomic scientists is continually measuring every second, of every day, to an accuracy of almost TEN BILLIONTHS of a SECOND.
  2. All "Atomic" Clocks, Watches, and other consumer Atomic timepieces are actually Radio-Controlled devices.As a result, "Atomic" or Radio-Controlled timepieces are exceedingly accurate, and never need resetting, twice a year your timepiece can automatically adjust for the change.
  3. With an Atomic timepiece you are guaranteed accuracy as it automatically synchronizes up to 7 times each day to the official United States Atomic Clock to insure consistent daily accuracy.
You can check the time here for any location

Most of the time when setting clock radios you have to press a combo of buttons in order to go through the settings. Many times you just need to press and hold the clock time button for a few seconds(normally between 3-6 seconds) and then the clock display will flash. When this happens you should be able to go through the hour and second numbers to set the time. After that you would probably need to hold the clock button again to stop the flashing to keep the setting you just did.

If this method does no work try a combo method by pressing the clock button and another button together for a few seconds to see if that works.

    This is an atomic clock, and may be difficult to regulate.

    Better contacting Accu-Rite toll free at 800-344-2311 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm EST.

    Just remove the battery, wait ten seconds, then put it back in place.

    This is a quite delicate device, if the simple solution proposed does not work, better to wait one day and contact Accu-Rite toll free at 800-344-2311 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm EST.

My Acu Rite 00992 weather station switched from F degrees to C degrees. Plus MPH to Kph and time from EST to PST. How do I change it back


Press Set-up, third round button from right and hold it down until "hour" on the time display flashes. Then press "set-up" again, and again (for me it was 8 times), until you get to where the "C" is flashing you want to change to "F." Now, press "Min" on the far left once to change it to "F." Press "set-up" two more times to get out of the cycle, and you're done.

The time display won't stop flashing


Q: Why does the time on my clock flash?
A: A flashing display is an indication of low battery power. We recommend using fresh alkaline batteries. We do NOT recommend using rechargeable batteries or heavy duty batteries in any of our digital products. They are not designed for this type of use and may cause the unit to perform as a defective unit or not at all. They will also cause the display to flash 100% of the time.

I can't set the day.


You have to set the Year. Hold the time Set until the hours blink then push the time set button again and the minutes blink then push the time set button again and the year will blink. Change it to 09. Then push the time set button again and set the date.

What is the website address or the url for acu rite weather stations


Acu-Rite is a brand of the Chaney Instruments Co. Here's a link to the company website. They don't have a lot of information, but you can at least get a product manual here. I'm guessing they just import and distribute the products and don't do any manufacturing.
