What frequency does Jordon use on their power is it 50 hz are the clocks 60 Hz designed power usage.
may need a device to convert 50hz to 60hz
search google for
50 hz to 60hz frequency converter

I have aclock on a frigidaire microwave that is loosing time


A defective clock would be the cause, the voltage is regulated by the oven circuit board, so line voltage would rally need to be way off to affect the operation of the clock. Ranges of line voltage here in USA are 110V-120V

REGULATION TIPS FOR THE 400-day and 1000-day clocks


CLOCK REGULATION TIPS FOR THE ROTATING REGULATOR
These Regulations tips are useful for regulating the rotating regulator. This is to include most 400-day and 1000-day clocks.
The following information is copied from SCHATZ (tm) OWNER'S HANDBOOK.
Time Regulation Tip:
On the top of the pendulum is a disk on which numbers are engraved 1 - 16 and two arrows marked F - S. The small indicator hand will be pointing to a number on the disk at which the clock was regulated before leaving the factory. Should you find it necessary to regulate the clock, observe the number to which the indicator hand points. The distance between each number is equivalent to 1/2 minute in 24 hours + or -.
FRROM MY PERSONAL SHOP NOTES:
If your clock loses two minutes per day [24 hours] and the indicator hand points to number 8 on the disk - move the disk in the direction of the arrow marked F until the indicator hand will point to number 1.
NOTE:
Before attempting adjustments to the regulator disk, first lock the pendulums by using the lever located on the front of the base. By so doing, you will avoid damage to the delicate suspension wire while turning the regulating disk.
Keep A Regulation Record:
Keeping a short Record of regulation and maintenance on your clock will make it much easier for you to keep it well with in its optimum time-keeping ability. We have found that using the guideline below helps.
Date: +/- in min: How much adjust in Degrees +/-: Personal Notes:
We recommend logging only the times the clock was wound, and any time the clock is regulated or reset.
Times of regulation will include any time the clock has exceeded a 3 to 5 minute error.
Use only ONE form of time references for this, a QUARTZ clock that is known for keeping good time is recommended.
Over time you may find the clock needs only slight regulation; for example, if it has run for approximately 3 weeks and the error rate is under 3 minutes adjust regulator only slightly or simply RE-set.
TEMPERATURE and SEASONAL CHANGES
Temperature fluctuation can affect the time-keeping abilities of your clock.
Never allow direct sun light to come in contact with your clock. This will over heat the clock and it will not only affect the time-keeping qualities, but also dry out the oil and cause premature servicing requirements.
SPECIAL NOTES: REGULATION TENDENCIES
It is very difficult to look at the hands of an analog clock and still determine if the clock is running correctly, therefore I recommend allowing the time error rate on the clock to remain UN-touched until the error rate has exceeded + or - 3 to 5 minutes. This is because 1 minute is very difficult to observe and calculate effectively.
One little known fact about the Rotating Regulator: After the clock is restarted it can take up to 3 or 4 hours for the pendulum to settle down into regular beat rate. Example: If the pendulum is under rotated the clock will run fast and will take some time to bring it up to speed. If over rotated it will run slow. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE: Look at the actual clock time and reset it as closely as possible to real time after the clock has run for about 3 to 4 hours but don't disturb the pendulum. ONLY RESET THE CLOCK IF the actual clock time is off by 1 or 3 minutes.
If you must reset the clock every 3 to 4 weeks, and it is FOR EXAMPLE always slow, Slightly RE-Regulate the clock to compensate for this rate of error. Simply reset the clock several times just to make sure that no mistakes are made.
How to Calculate the Adjustment:
Calculating how much to turn the regulating nut on the rotating pendulum by using the following calculations.

Hope this tip helps.

I have a Simply Perfect For The Home brand Microwave Oven that I bought from the U.S. Military post here in Schweinfurt, Germany for $50 I live on the economy in my own apartment. The microwave is a 120...


Just as a NOTE: When I bought my Panasonic microwave from AAFES, before I took it home, they sent it through their maintenance department to adjust the internal voltage. Power for the US is 60 HZ. Power in Europe is 50 HZ. Long Technical Explanation shortened: there's more energy (Heat) in 50 Hz than 60HZ especially when used in anything that uses high power. AAFES adjusted the internal power down to compensate and keep from blowing up the unit. Look for a fuse inside. Replace it, then ask AAFES to reconfigure the product for lower power or 50Hz.
Also as a note, many, dare I say most, clocks from the US count the HZ to count time. So if your US clock, say on your coffeepot timer, looses time overseas; it's probably losing 4 hours a day (do the math: 50 hz/60hz=83.333_%. 83.3_%*24 hr=20 hrs or 4 hours lost). So, if your time is set for 7AM coffee start, when you get that cup of coffee at 7:10AM, set your clock forward to 11:10 AM; or at 7PM, make sure it actually says 9PM. It will loose enough time by the next 7AM to be correct.

I recently purchased an Audiovox Clock Radio CR20 from the USA on a visit to that country. I am back in my home country India and started using the clock radio. I find that the clock is not keeping correct...


The reason of your problem is that your local mains frequency is 50 Hz and when you use 230V to 120V converter, this simple device can not convert frequency only the voltage. Your clock is synchronized to the mains frequency which is 50 Hz instead of 60 Hz and the clock goes slowly. It is late (60-50)/60 ---> 10 minutes in every hour.
I am sorry but I think your problem can not be fixed. ( It would be possible to convert the frequency but the cost of this kind of device would be higher than the value of this Audiovox)

Thanks.

Considering a 9VDC battery keeps the clock alive when power is disconnected, I would guess the clock time is independent of line current frequency. Does anyone actually use motorized clock works anymore?

Dryer timer counts off to fast


The only thing that I can think of is that you are using a dryer intended for Europe in the US. While they both run on 220V, the timer motor will be specific for the frequency of the country. The US uses 60 Hz. Europe uses 50 Hz.

To keep the explanation simplistic, your timer motor expect 50 electric (frequency) "beats" per second but instead is getting 60 beats per second. Your clock is turning an extra 12 seconds every minute.

Playstation 3 for europe


All the machine manufacture for Usa work on 110 volt 60 hz and the format is Ntsc.You should check availability on line about region Format like NTSC-PAL -PAL2 SECAM and which country are using the same, and make sure the hz is 50.Most of the new Game system support Dual Voltage But not the Ps3.You need to let your seller check on the machine tag to make sure everything is correct like 220v 50 hz.

SOny Clock IC492 looses time


Dont think this model clock accuracy depends upon the supply frequency.
1. I have ICF C 318 with the same specification but works accurately (1 sencond) in 50 Hz.
2. there are some amazone complaints even from US (wherein 60 Hz exists)

3. Dont think a clock designer will depend on supply frequency. (many time, this varies even in a very good power network)

JCR-160 clock radio Clock running slow


The clock works off the frequency (hertz). In US the electrical wave frequency is 60HZ/sec and in India and many other countries 50HZ/sec. Hence, the clock slows down about 6 seconds or so every minute.
