Reset bar888a to 24-hour clock

I got model BAR888a at an estate sale. The previous owner changed the time format to 12-hour clock. I'd like to change it back to 24-hour but I can't seem to do it. Probably, it's related to the country option, but it seems to bypass the country setting when I try to set the time according to the manual. Or does the 24 hr button relate to this rather than just setting the alarm? Using Reset didn't resolve this.

If you have the manual, it tells you how to change time format. Also, careful reading of the manual will eliminate much of the confusion you are experiencing in setting up the device. Bear in mind that some functions can fail over time.

On my GE Cafe oven, how do I change the time display from 12 hours to 24 hours?


Not knowing your model number, a generic manual search was done. Unless you have something that says the clock will display 24 hour format, you are unable to change your clock to that function.

Timex 1440 sport indiglo 50m convert from 24 hour clock to 12 hour clock.


There are several models of your watch not all of which appear to have a 12/24 hour display format.

Try this extract from a manual; press the MODE button six times to enter the 12/24 adjusting setting and then use the START/STOP or SPLIT/RESET button to change the time.

Press the mode button to return to normal operation.

    First to change the clock to a 12 hour instead of a 24 hour requires a bit of CAUTION. You have to go into the technician level of programming so be careful. From a display phone, Press #, ( Programming ) is displayed, enter 20, ( MMC Disabled ) is displayed, enter password ( 1 2 3 4 is default ), enter function 4 for 12 hour clock, enter # to exit. If the time and date are displayed wrong you have to go to # 55 and reset time and date.
    YY MM DD W HH MM format. W = Day of week with 1=Monday and HH MM must be entered in Military time even though you have a 12 hour clock set. Good Luck
