How do I set the clock on my alba ccd216dab alarm clock to 24 hours, instead of 12 hours?

As this is an old model, I don't know where the instructions are. I just moved house and so it has been unplugged for several hours. When I try to reset the time, it will only go up to 12 then has a light indicating the afternoon, but I prefer it at 24 hours. Help?!

SOURCE: Clock format

24 hour mode is all there is. Time to learn military time.

SOURCE: Smart set alarm clock - resetting instruction

First, make sure the time is set correctly – Eastern Standard Time (EST) is the default
Press the Alarm Mode button – it has options for Weekend, meaning Sat and Sun only; Weekdays (Mon-Fri), and Everyday
While holding either the ALM 1 or ALM 2 button, press up or down to set the correct wake-up time
Release ALM 1 (or 2) when you are finished

Here is a link to the manual:

according to my manual there isn't an option for 12 hour settings only the 24. I know, it's pretty dumb!

SOURCE: Sharper Image S1785 Clock Settings

When setting-up the time (by pushing the "mode" button), the alarm time set comes up first, followed by the time set.
When setting the proper hour in this mode, simply continue through the military "24 hour" cycle and the second cycle of 24 hours will be in the 12 hour format.
Continue through and finish the mode set-up function and your up and running. --

SOURCE: alarm clock settings need changing, no instruction manual

In the top left corner there will be some bars showing that the hour anouncement is on. Simply press the minute button and these bars will go, leaving you in peace and quiet.

Kenmore side by side - model - 253.54739304. we moved it from one house to another. it was working fine. now won't freeze or cool properly. like it is in defrost mode. compressor was not running...

if while moving it , you laid it on its side, it collected air in the lines, having it unplugged is a good idea, normally 24 hours is enough for the air to settle,, try it again after that time,

Model 385.15718500..machine only goes in reverse

Sounds like the reverse mechanism has jammed...either with lint or lack of use and oil/lint has frozen the mechanism.
Unplug the machine and remove the base. Clean all the lint with small brush and vacuum.
Try the reverse lever to see where the connecting rods are and identify the collar around the bottom shaft....try to move manually, use a little lubricant where the collar moves on the shaft.
In extreme cases it may take several applications over several days to rectify this, but as this is only 3 years old, should respond quickly

    Shutting down fridge/freezer when moving house

    Other than un-hooking the power and any other connection like water, then defrosting to get rid of any ice buildup then prep for moving...the only thing you have to be aware of is transporting it in an unright position to protect the condenser. Here are the steps:

    1. Remove all food from the refrigerator and pack all
    frozen food in dry ice.
    2. Depending on your model, turn the thermostat control
    (refrigerator control) to OFF. See the Setting the
    Controls section.
    3. Unplug the refrigerator.
    4. Clean, wipe and dry thoroughly.
    5. Take out all removable parts, wrap them well and tape
    them together so they don’t shift and rattle during the
    6. Depending on the model, raise the front of the
    refrigerator so it rolls more easily OR screw in the
    leveling legs all the way so they don’t scrape the floor.
    See the Door Closing section.
    7. Tape the doors shut and tape the power cord to the
    refrigerator cabinet.

    Fridge quit cooling after i moved it

    did you tilt it when you moved it and then when u got it in place plug it in? if so youve got compressor problems, anytime you tilt a fridge you have to let it set for several hours to allow the oil to get back to the compressor or you ruin the compressor

    It s not working at all.

    The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

    If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

    Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

    Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
