Question about Clock Radios

My GE Clock Radio, Model No. C-403D

I got it on Ebay, I don't know the model year or how to set the time or the alarm. It has a label on the back with cautions regarding tubes and the radio is am only. Can anyone help? I'd also like to get a manual or instruction book for it but can't find one.

Probably a few years too late to be any good, but maybe someone else will have the same question. Your GE clock radio is from around 1964, a classic mid-century design with an "All-American-Five" tube radio set. There should be a round knob sticking out of the back panel, right behind the clock. Just twist it to set the time, pull and twist to set the alarm, IIRC. If the knob is missing, you can remove the back panel (unplug from the wall first! The back panel has a safety plug that disconnects the cord,) and you can easily see and twist the stub of the knob. You can download the schematics from the Radio Museum (http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/general_el_c403dc_403.html) but you have to be a member.

you probably have it on "wake up cd track", in the front, press the wake 1, or wake 2 button (depending on what the alarm is set on) until the little bell is on the side, that should make it ring, louder and louder :)

I don't have a manual for my GE clock radio model 7-4809. How do I set the alarm. FK


If it has a wake button, push and hold the wake button while you push the hour and minute buttons to set the time to wake. It may have an alarm button instead of a wake button. Then there should be a switch to set to wake to alarm sound or music.

How to set time on model HD211B clock radio


1: Remove screw from top back of radio and carefully lift lid that retains buttons. Might be a good idea to take a pic of buttons so they don't get mixed up as they will just pop off at this point.

2: On either side of the back middle button you will see a switch and three (3) buttons.

3: Move "Off On Lock" switch to "Off" (left) position. You will see the unlocked symbol appear on the display.

4: Push far right button first to set your time "Zone" using the "Alarm Time" or "Radio Tune" buttons. Wait 5 seconds for the beep when done.

5: Push the "Time Set" button. (It is the one closest to the "Off On Lock" switch).

6: Use the "Alarm Time" or "Radio Tune" buttons to set the time. (Note: "PM" will appear in the upper left corner of the front display when your time is after noon!)

7: The time display will stop blinking and set about 8 seconds after your last move.

8: Push "Calen" button to set calendar. First the year the push the button again to scroll to the date.

9: Push the lock switch to the right and the lock symbol should disappear from the front display.

10: p
If you removed any buttons put them back, then put the cover back on and re install the screw.

or

Call the front desk and ask them to set or replace the clock.....

I don't know how to set the clock for a MA4203 model


I couldn't find the information for your particular model, but I did figure out the general procedure for Memorex alarm clocks currently in production:

  1. Make sure power is turned off (no radio or whatever playing). Press the Time Set button (on some models, this is the Skip Search Back button for an iPod docked in the unit).
  2. When the display blinks (on one model, the volume control knob lights up), press the Hour button (Vol. -) to set the hour, then press the Minutes button (Vol. +) to set the minutes. On the model with the light-up volume control, rotate the volume control knob to set the time.
  3. When you have the time set, either wait 15 seconds or press the Time Set button again to start the clock.
Setting the alarm works the same way on single alarm models, but the Alarm Set button may be the Skip Search Forward button. Dual alarm models have separate Alarm A and Alarm B buttons.

How to set time/alarm GE Auto Clock Set Radio Model 7-4892A


What I have found with my alarm clock like this one is that you CANNOT be soft on it. When setting the time, hold down the F or R button extra hard. I know that seems odd, but it works!
