Do you have any type of app that clean you devices? Like Clean Master or CCleaner? If you do, just remove the app, and refresh the widget that have the time. This is for clock widgets that you have in the home screen.

How do you set the minutes on the clock?


There are two ways to set the clock on your coffee maker. 1- When you initially plug in the coffee maker, the unit will beep and "12:00" will flash on the LCD display for a few seconds. Press immediately the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. If "12:00" starts to flash, press the PROG button (n) for a few seconds until the "12:00" flashes again. Then press the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. There are AM and PM indicators on the top right side of the LCD screen. To set the current minutes, press the PROG button (n) and then press the h/min button (o) until the correct minutes appear on the LCD display. After 5 seconds, the unit will beep and the time will stop flashing. 2- At any other time, you can set the clock or change the set time by pressing and holding the h/min button (o). The unit will beep and "12:00" will flash on the LCD display. Use the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. There are AM and PM indicators on the top right side of the LCD screen. To set the current minutes, press the PROG button (n) and then press the h/min button (o) until the correct minutes appear on the LCD display. After 5 seconds, the unit will beep and the time will stop flashing. Notes: Your clock has now been set and will continue to keep the correct time, even after the coffee maker has been shut off. Unplugging the coffee maker or a power failure will reset the clock to 12:00 AM. Repeat the instructions above to reset the clock

My La Crosse Radio Controller clock will not set itself. I have tried setting the time manually but it always advances by approximately 1/2 hour after the manual set. Why?


I have the same problem with my 16" analog La Crosse wall clock - it was adding 30 minutes to the time every time I set it manually because, even in manual mode, it will continue to search for the signal. Mine is the WT-3161BL with blue dial. This series of clock, which are still being sold with a black and a white dial, have only mediocre reviews on Amazon. Users report they are unreliable or reliable for only a couple of years before they become incapable of keeping time. Others have received their radio-controlled clocks - as I did - with the hands disconnected (because they're flimsy). They are very nice looking (with a stainless bezel) but quality control, not failure to understand the directions, is the greater issue.

I am responding to this post even though it is old because these clocks are still being sold - and not cheaply, in most cases, either. It would be nice if someone could PUBLISH the La Crosse instructions for re-calibrating these clocks. Why? Because from my own attempts to repair this clock I think the issue is that the hands, especially if they become misaligned or fall off in shipping and are subsequently reattached, are not in sync with what the circuit board is configured to "understand" as the 12, 4, and 8 o'clock positions. What this means is that when you select your time zone it may not, in fact, advance to one of the above-indicated times and await the signal. It may advance in a seemingly random fashion. It's not random rather the hands are not aligned with what the circuitry expects to be the 12, 4 and 8 o'clock position. If this is the case no matter what time zone you select or how good your radio reception it will never "catch" the correct time.

I have seen references in some of the Amazon reviews for those who obtained warranty service that La Crosse Technologies "calibrates" it and then sends it back. If I had to guess, calibration of a radio-controlled (analog!) clock involves aligning the hands to the position the circuitry "expects" to be the default (factory) preset. If that is correct, pushing the Time Zone button will allow it to advance the correct number of revolutions. If the hands are not in the factory defaults due to shipping damage or a defect with the assembly, it will continue to set itself incorrectly.

What is frustrating about La Crosse Technology radio control analog clock design is that "Manual Set" continues, nonetheless, to engage the atomic time signal. So even if you compensate by setting the time manually it will, as it states in the user manual, continue to "search". When it thinks it receives a signal it will reset the time, if only partially. This accounts for why, when the radio signal is not strong enough, that these clocks cannot seem to "keep time". It also accounts for why, when they are assembled incorrectly or otherwise damaged (or repaired by re-attaching the hands) that it still cannot keep time.

If La Crosse would simply design their analog wall clocks so that Manual Set DOES NOT continue to search for the atomic time radio signal it would FIX a lot of the issues encountered by owners who A) received a damaged or defective radio-controlled wall clock, and B) those who do not have good atomic signal strength in their location but for which the clock continues to attempt to make use of an intermittent (incomplete) signal. Alas, this is not how La Crosse Technologies designs these analog clocks to function in Manual Set mode, so when the signal is too weak or the hands are misaligned it will continue to try to reset itself but inevitably to the WRONG TIME. (My suggestion to the manufacturer is that they design these clocks to at least have the option to go on working correctly in Manual time set mode, as opposed to having one linked to the other in such a way that when the Radio Control fails the Manual set options also go awry.) Alas, the only real solution that I know of, short of someone obtaining La Crosse Technologies factory calibration instructions, is to DIY replace the radio-controlled quartz module with an aftermarket (non-radio) mechanism. Otherwise, a good percentage of these clocks that did not survive shipping or were not assembled well to begin with will not hold the time.

I've set the time on/off and ive tried turning on manually but the lights wont turn on on exact time set. y? when i manually turn on the lights come on 2 hrs later or so, y doesnt it turn on right away?


If I understand correctly, you have an Intermatic timer.
The timer has a yellow dial that rotates around like a clock.

Does the manual override work?
If yes.
a) then the circuit has electricity
b) the lights are in working order

Does the clock rotate?
If yes
a) then the timer is probably good
b) the clock motor could be bad
c) the gears could be rusty and dirty

Do you have the current time set correctly?
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

Do you have the trippers set on the correct time?
There are ON trippers and OFF trippers
Attach trippers to correct time
Tripper pins wear out

Suggestion: You sit in front of the timer and watch the trippers as they rotate to the bottom of the dial
When the trippers get to the bottom, they push a lever that turns lights on and off.
Look at the photo:

Here's a website that sells tripper pins and clock motors for Intermatic timers.
You can buy new trippers or clock motor

Make sure that the clock is set for the correct time zone and that the DST (Daylight Saving Time) function is ON. Also, although not mentioned in the manuals, these clocks will typically jump and hour ahead or behind when the batteries get weak. Replace your batteries if they are more than a year old.

I can't set the clock. The hands keep turning and


Look at the bottom right of the back of the clock and find the "M Set" button. Simply hold it down and the clock will move (very slowly). When it gets to the correct time, let go of the button. After that, the radio controlled shoul dcontrol should correct any minor differences in time.

RCA RP5420B 2Band AM/FM Clock Radio


At the top of the clock, there is four positions for the slider. The first is shown as a key, which I assume is the automatic time setting mode. The second is Wake 1, the third is Wake 2 and all the way to the right is a manual time setting mode. If you slide it all the way to the right, you can set the time, then either keep it in that mode or return it back to automatic mode. Either way, you now have the correct time displayed.
