    same problem

  • Suzbluafyuz Apr 15, 2009

    We have the same problem. The old battery was apparently dying, and the second hand was moving very slowly, and we couldn't set it to the correct time. After putting in a new battery, the clock set itself to 12:00 and we can't get it to set to Central Standard Time.

  • Suzbluafyuz Apr 22, 2009

    I was able to set the time, but it only stayed at the correct time (Central Standard) for a little while, and then it reset itself to one hour earlier. We're on Daylight Savings time now, but the clock won't let me set to the correct time. Don't know how to correct it.

    IT is a new clock when I hit the set on it it just goes around untill it gets to the 12:00 then stops. It acts as though it is searching for a signal.

Look at the bottom right of the back of the clock and find the "M Set" button. Simply hold it down and the clock will move (very slowly). When it gets to the correct time, let go of the button. After that, the radio controlled shoul dcontrol should correct any minor differences in time.

How do I test for a poor ground wire as opposed to a bad ground wire?


One tiny wire has very little resistance. Turn up your Ohm meter to it's highest setting. Be sure to have it calibrated exactly the same for each test (zeroed out). The very good connection should read infinite but the tiny connection should show a tiny bit of resistance. It's difficult but not impossible. Get a friend to help so the resistance in your body doesn't affect the data. Use one hand and new clips.

It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)
