On the back of the clock - left hand side if you've laid it down on it's face - is a row of switches. You need to start the time set-up with the clock having been unplugged so there's no time set in the memory.
Now, to those switches: The first (from the left) is DST = Daylight Savings Time - right now you'de set this to "ON."
The second switch is Time Zone: PST, MST, CST, EST (Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern). Set the switch to the time zone you are in.
The third is just the brightness.

Now, to set the time itself:
1 - Turn the clock face back up to where you can see it.
2 - LOOK AT THE CLOCK - LOL! This is an atomically set clock - you shouldn't need to set the time. The atomic clock bounces off of satellites all around the world. There is literally little to no "dead zones" for the clock, so you should never have to set your clock - just set it up like I state at the beginning.

Good Luck!

I set the clock for a morining time, but it goes off in the evening.


There should be some kind of indication whether you are setting time in AM or PM. You may have missed this as you rotated through the time setting

I cant get the clock to hold the correct time . Every time i set the clock it goes back in time 2 hours after awhile


Have you tried using the reset hole under (use pin) and setting again? Also after setting you have to press the mode button again to go back into normal mode.If that fails it's probably broken.

Cant set time or turn off alarm


Try setting all three alarms to the current time and then slide the switch back to the locked position. You should see the correct time displayed. It works on mine.

Alternating time and radio setting


When the display was doing this to me tonight (I just got the thing, so fat lot I know, huh? I try), I pushed the "OFF" button 2 or 3 times. The OFF button is on the top of the clock, next to all of the alarm buttons. It quit alternating for me.

Setting the time


This info is in the pdf manual (pg 5) posted on the FixYa page for this problem (about middle of the page). I can't paste in the graphic but this is what the page says:

Setting time: (graphic is of the top of the radio with the buttons)
1. Press the SET button, the “ : ” will flash on the display .
2. Press REV (L arrow) or FWD (R arrow) to set the time.
3. AM or PM icon will show beside the time.

Tip: No icon will be flashing if all selectors are set. If you see any icon flashing on the display, press the SET button repeatedly to confirm everything is set correctly.
