How to set time/alarm GE Auto Clock Set Radio Model 7-4892A

I purchased a used GE Dual Alarm auto clock set radio/alarm clock, and I can not figure out how to set the time/alarms! I don't consider myself an idiot, but am feeling like one. There is no "set" button, and I've tried pressing all the buttons (including the manual set at the back of the clock) to no avail. Has anyone got a manual out there they can share and/or a link to one online --- or anyone just own one of these things that they can help with? I have a feeling this thing was probably broken when I bought it.

    How do I reset the time??

  • grinchygirl Feb 16, 2008

    Thanks for trying, but that did not help my problem at all. My clock is Model #7-4892A. It does not have ANY time/date selector switch to set anything. It is printed on the front that it is "Auto Clock Set" however that doesn't seem to work. There is a button on the back to press for "Manual Clock Set" but I cannot figure out how to get it to work either. I appreciate your trying to help though!

What I have found with my alarm clock like this one is that you CANNOT be soft on it. When setting the time, hold down the F or R button extra hard. I know that seems odd, but it works!

I have a solution for the GE Auto set clock and radio model number 7-4892A. The only way that I had found out just by accident is that you are suppose to hold down the manual clock set until you start to see the Year and then the Date. There you will be able to set it to the correct date or year.

Sorry, the above link is bad. Here is the correct link. You will need Abobe Acrobat Reader, as it is a .pdf file. You will also have to use the magnifier feature to view the fine print.

Set time on RCA dual clock radio with fashion wrap? RCR 8622


I love the form of your question, as I wanted to wing the sucker myself, but got online before I actually pulled an Office Space on it. I found nothing, but I DID actually figure it out. Not super intuitive though. To set the time: Hold down the memory key in the middle until the number flashes. Use the arrow up/down on the right to set hour. Press Memory key again, repeat with arrow keys to set minutes. Hit memory key again. Alarm: Press/hold the Alarm button until the Alarm 1 or 2 flashes and press the side you want, 1 or 2, to set. Arrow time up/down, then do minutes, press alarm 1 again, select alarm or tuner, press alarm 1 again. Now I need to see if it will work in the morning. I know the flipping time is set though! Good luck. If you wing it, please post photos! :D

"unset" the alarm on Timex T300T clock radio


When you set the alarm you pressed aburron that said 'radio' and/or 'buzzer' then programmed the time. Just press the buttons again and the alarm will no longer sound. Looking at the dial at the top of the lcd screen you will see the word buzzser or radfio if the alarm is enabled. Pressing buzzer or radio on the side will remove the word and no more alarm!!

Push the SET WAKE/TIME button on the far right of all the buttons - it's the button closest to the CD player. Push it until the 1 or 2 show up on the display - whichever one you want to use. The push the CD player's forward button - the one with the two right-facing arrows - until the time you want to wake up shows up in the display. That's it. To turn the alarm off, push the WAKE CANCEL button, below the set wake/time button, the push the 1 or 2 button, depending on which alarm you want to turn off. The display will show OFF in the alarm you chose.
