There are so many different battery clock movements, with entirely different setting mechanisms, that I will have to answer generally. If your clock has three batteries, it is probably an older movement and may be worn out (just a possibility).
First, check the movement for a chime shut-off switch or a night-off switch. Some of these clocks have lots of switches and controls and it's hard to notice them all.
Make sure that all batteries are new and fresh, and installed in the correct direction. Use ONLY alkaline batteries. Sometimes batteries marked "heavy duty" are really old fashioned acid batteries. Never use rechargeable batteries of any kind!
Many battery clocks, especially the older ones, have setting mechanisms that are extremely complicated. It is almost impossible to get them set up without an instruction manual. Sometimes every step must be followed in order to get the clock chiming. If you don't have one, I would attempt to get one from the manufacturer (not always an easy thing).
If all else fails, you can replace the whole movement. The replacement will not be identical to the original one. You try to get one that is compatible, then some modifications to the mounting system in the case may be necessary. You can get these from clock materials houses.
The things remembered clock is just tension fit in the housing. Easiest way to get it out is to get a plastic suction cup. Press the suction cup onto the face of the clock and pull and jiggle till the clock comes out. This way you wont gouge up the wood trying to pry the clock out with a screwdriver. It takes an N cell battery: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N_battery
hmmm....well my question to you would be did you install the battery corectly....remember the neg cable comes off first and goes on last if you reverse the installation procedure you can blow fuses or worse....i would check the fuses and keep my fingers crossed
My manual said the same thing. Although I have never had the radio stop working on me even after I changed the battery. To set the clock you hold the mode button, like your changing the bass/ treble. Hold it down then it will show clock flashing. From there I cant remember i think i used the arrows by the number pad to change the time. Hope this works for you.
