Question about La Crosse Radio Controlled Atomic Clock

1 Answer

My Lacrosse radio controlled clock (IECLR6) has begun performing erratically. First it set itself 35 minutes slow. A few days later it began advancing the time rapidly and continually. I removed the battery. The next day when I replaced the battery the hands didn't move at all. I put in a different battery and the hands moved forward 2 seconds and then the clock stopped. Back to the original battery, now it's running forward rapidly. .

Mine does the same thing. I contacted the manufacturer and they told me there's nothing I can do to fix it. They suggested I return it if it's under warranty (which it isn't). With no warranty they said there is no way to repair it.

How do I set the clock in the radio?


Typically, you have to hold down a "Time" or "Clock" button, then press either a fast or slow button and hold it until the display reads the correct time. Some models have hour and minute buttons instead of fast or slow, and a few have a slide switch that you move to the clock adjust position (it would also have an alarm set position) before the hour/minute or fast/slow buttons are enabled. Some clocks reset to 12:00 AM if you hold Clock, Fast and Slow all at the same time. You'll just have to experiment a bit to find out what works on yours.

How do I set my lacrosse clock ws8055u


Press and hold Set (the top button on the right hand side of the clock) for 2+ seconds to enter the Programming mode. If the unit hasn't been set before "-5EST" should start flashing. Press + (the second button from the top) until the correct time zone is displayed. Press Set to save the setting and advance to the next program option. Again use the + button to set DST on or off. Press Set again to save and advance to the language choice (for the displayed day of the week). Press + to go through the choices and then press Set. Repeat the above steps to set the hour (if the clock didn't get the correct time from the WWVB radio). Note: PM will be displayed for the afternoon hours. There is no indicator for AM hours. Press Set again to save and advance to the Minute setting. Pressing Set again will bring the unit to set the Year, then advance to Month, then Date. The next press of the Set button will advance to setting the day of the week. The next items to set are the 12/24 hour time display and the units for the temperature.

If you press Snooze, on the top of the clock, or do not press a button within 15 seconds, the clock will exit the Programming Mode. LaCrosse has the manual for the WS-8055U on the product page: http://lacrossetechnology.com/8055/ . The direct link to the manual is http://lacrossetechnology.com/8055/manual.pdf . Make sure to replace the 2 AA batteries and position the clock where the radio signal is strong if the clock doesn't maintain the correct time.

I hope this helps.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)

How do you manually reset a Lacrosse Atomic Clock. Ours is always 4 hours behind and has not caught up. We already changed the batteries.


There are many LaCrosse atomic clocks. Which model do you have? Support for most is available here: http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/support/home.php . Use the drop down menu to select the model.

For the analog clocks, there is a manual set button on the back of the clock. Press the button and wait for the clock to advance to the correct time. Then make sure the correct time zone button has been pushed. Then make sure the clock is in a location where it can hear the signal overnight. (For best results stand the clock upright in a window.)

For WT-2165U travel alarm, press and hold Set to enter the setting function. Then select the time zone (with + or -) then press and release Set. Set the DST setting to on or off as needed, then press and release Set again. The next setting option is the snooze alarm duration. Press and release Set again to change the hour manually (+ to increase). Press and release Set again to set the Minutes. Correct the date (year, month, day, day of week) similarly. Then set the display to 12 or 24 hour time. Press and release Set to finish and exit the set functions.

For some of the digital clocks you can set the time manually by pressing and holding Set. First set the time display mode (12/24), then press and release Set again. Then set the hours, followed by Set and then the minutes. Continue through other menu options or just do not press any buttons for several (30) seconds.

On the digital clocks, the item being changed will flash.

To avoid interference with the signal reception, place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal.

I hope this helps.

I have a lacrosse technology wall clock how do i set the time


You don't set the time. You set the Time Zone and it sets itself.

What model is YOUR clock?

This site lists several models of La Crosse wall clocks with downloadable instructions.

Brookstone smart set alarm clock. It is about 20minutes ahead


I've noticed that manually setting the clock forward or back by any number of minutes, results in the same time offset being displayed after unplugging - plugging back in. So, if it's 9pm and you set if 5 minutes fast (9:05pm). Then unplug it and plug it back in 30 minutes later (9:30pm), the clock will maintain your setting of 5 minutes ahead of the actual time (9:35).

I like to set my clocks 5 minutes fast, just to make me always think I'm running a bit late (sure, maybe I'm a bit crazy). But this "sticky" manual setting is kind of a nice feature in my opinion. I'm wondering if it's not intentional?

Anyway, just manually set it back to the real time, and it sho

RCA RP5435B SN.1A006J255A0594-Clock running slow


Most of the Radio clocks by RCA are meant to be used with 60Hz AC line. This problem will not go away unles you can get a custom built 60 Hz AC power supply, may prove to be too expensive for the clock.
