    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.

Minute hand on atomic clock keeps moving


Take the battery out and put it back in the opposite direction. Wait 5 seconds. Put it back in the correct position. The minute hand will go around very fast and eventually come to a stop. This can take a couple days. That means it is waiting for a radio signal from Colorado. For a better signal, place the clock in a window that is facing Colorado. The minute hand will begin to spin very fast until it stops at the correct time. Again, this could take up to 2 days.

The second hand on our LaCrosse atomic clock has stopped moving but the clock continues to keep perfect time. How do we get the second hand turning again?


The manual for one of their clocks says the clock will change the second hand to two-second intervals to conserve energy when the battery voltage gets low. Perhaps your battery is VERY low.

take the batteries back out and leave them out for at least 2 minutes. next put the batteries back in and put the clock near a wall or window so that the back of the clock faces colorado (where the WMV transmitter is),. It will most likely take all night for it to set properly, just after you put in the battery make sure that you have set your time zone on the back of the clock and if there is DST button press that too. just be patient, it will set itself. worse comes to worse you can set it by hand, but kind of defeats the purpose of having an "atomic clock". by the way the reason they call it "atomic" is becausee WMV's clock is tracking the decay of the Seisum atom, or some such bs.

It does that until it receives a signal. Leave it overnight and it will probably get one. Instructions for this clock are at skyscaninfo.com

Try to move the clock to a different place. Atomic clocks work by receiving a radio signal. If it has no reception, it may do that. However, I would suspect that no reception would lead to it not setting at all(at least based on the ones I've seen) and it may be something wrong with it (i.e. having difficulty detecting where it's hands are) Good luck.

Hands on lacrosse atomic clock won't stop spinning.


remove everything to get to the hands, remove the top hands only leaving the one, carefully apply crazy glue (tiniest sliver) to the hand where it meets the shaft. Adjust that hand for one minute after the current time. wait about 15 seconds between each hand. Apply the others remembering to set the others to the exact time. let it dry and you should be done.

Savings time


This is more of a Clarification than a solution.
I've determined that the SS-5000 is not recognizing the changes to DST that happened in 2007.

From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time.

So in March the clock is still trying to keep the "earler" time and in November it's trying to keep the 'later' time.

I'm contacting HomeMedics Support to see if there's a resolution.
