The Emerson Atomic Clock won't hold the time. It continues to display 20 ne message despite the reset attempts and position changes. I also replaced the battery.

    We have the same problem.  This happened after a bad storm in which we lost power for 30 minutes or so.

    I have the same problem, however, figured out that it was displaying "Zone". Does anybody know...is the clock a lost cause, or what?? We've tried multiple things as well.

It's not displaying 20 ne - It's asking for the time ZONE . . .

It is asking for the time signal. Try moving the clock/radio to another area in the house. The atomic clock signal from Boulder, Colorado is on a frequency of 60 kHz. Unfortunately house current 120 volt is also 60 kHz and may be interfering with the signal. Hope this helps

My new Kenmore Electric Range, model 790.9419, purchased July 18, 2014...The clock no longer works. I press "clock", the code CLO appears; I set correct time; press START and the display goes blank an


That's an enegy saving "feature" - the ability to turn off the clock. Usually (in most models), you can turn the clock display back on by pressing and holding the clock 10 to 15 seconds.

S10Scan atomic clock model 87310 time is 4;pm should be 10:am


Hi

Time zone setting
Language Setting
The weekdays can be displayed in LCD1 with the pre-set languages: US English, French and Spanish.
1. Set the desired language for the weekday display in LCD 2 by use of the + key.
2. Press the SET key to enter the mode “Manual Time Setting”.
Manual Time Setting
In case the Skyscan Atomic Clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock.
Note:
In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional “PM” for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59.
1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1. Set the desired hours by pressing the +key followed by pressing the SET key.
2. Now the minute digits will start flashing. Set the desired minutes by pressing the +key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
3. Press the SET key to move to the “Year Setting”.
Note:
The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the following hour.
WWVB time reception takes place from 12:00 am through 6:00 am each day (attempts WWVB reception every full hour within this time frame). When the time signal is received for example at 1:00 am, the Skyscan Atomic Clock will not attempt to receive the WWVB signal for the remaining hours until 6:00 am. Therefore, the next signal attempt will take place between 12:00 am and 6:00 am the next day. The other times WWVB reception takes place, are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.

Thank you

I have this clock and just finished getting it all working again. At first I kept messing around with the AAA batteries in the remote unit, finally realized there were AA batts in the back of the main clock/display unit. Replaced those, pressed the reset button next to the battery compartment. Pressed the reset button on the remote unit (it's under the back lid next to the AAA battery compartment). Little red light on the remote unit started flashing and remote temp showed on the main display. Then you have to wait for atomic time to reset itself or set the time and other display options manually - I kept messing around with the various buttons until I figured out how to do this (atomic time never reset) - start by holding down the smaller "AL" button on the top next to the big snooze/light button, use top two side buttons for up/down, use the AL button to go to next setting.

My cka 1000wants to display 20 ne most of the time.


The manual recommends pushing the time / set middle large button once or twice. Have the antenna as far away from the clock as possiable. In the NE NY & Boston it make take a few days due to weak signal. It helps if the antenna is by a non metal window sill. If that doesn't work put it on the west side of a house and after a few days it will set. After pressing the button one of 4 dashes will appear in the display. This means it has confirmed the signal and the clock will set. ( I just found my missing manual and reset it all myself).

Savings time


This is more of a Clarification than a solution.
I've determined that the SS-5000 is not recognizing the changes to DST that happened in 2007.

From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time.

So in March the clock is still trying to keep the "earler" time and in November it's trying to keep the 'later' time.

I'm contacting HomeMedics Support to see if there's a resolution.

Needles flying around the clock


I have a mantle clock version and to set the clock to recognize the radio signal, I need to hold down both the ET and PT time zone buttons for a few seconds. The clock hands will then continue to move until they reset themselves to the correct time.
