Is this the only thing that is not working on the radio? If so, then do you want to try to fix yourself or send off?

SOURCE: Second hand has stopped working.

Hello
Just setup the clock once again by replacing the battery and check. If this also does not help you, the the press fitting of the second is loose. you have to open it to make it pressed firm.


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each

hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to 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. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
OK.

Trying to get a manual for a Spartus Talking Horoscope Clock. Model No.1793


I found a Spartus Talking Horoscope Alarm Clock. When I de-corroded the battery compartment at first it worked...talked. Now it has stopped talking but still keeps time and the alarm function works. It seemed to stop talking when I discovered the removable module, took it out to examine it and replaced it. Any one have suggestions or solutions to this problem. The clock is beautiful and complete. I wouldn't sell it for $99.00. Try $100.00.
I can be reached at alcrawfordloves@yahoo or 501) 279-2481. Thanks!

How do you set the alarm?


I couldn't find a manual for this model, but you might be able to get information from the manufacturer. This information is from the GE site here:

In 1987 GE sold its home electronics business to ThomsonĀ®, Inc. For a time, ThomsonĀ® produced many products that carried the GE name, but now only manufactures telephone and communications products.

The items that they support but no longer manufacture include:

  • Audio products
  • Camcorder
  • Cassette recorder
  • CD player
  • Clock radio
  • Spacemaker radio
  • Spacemaker TV
  • Television
  • Video camera
For assistance with any of these older products or your current GE telephone products please call 1-800-447-1700 in the US. In Canada, call 1-800-522-0338 (English) or 1-800-522-0445 (French).

Thomson, Inc.
PO Box 671988
Marietta, GA 30006-0034

Try calling the phone number listed. They might be able to supply you with a copy of the manual. Hope this helps a little. Thanks for using Fixya!

Clock radio just stopped working.


You will have to buy a new Clock/Radio, because Emerson does not support out of warranty repairs for these Clock/Radios. What this means to you, is there is no support. No parts or service information for the service centers to work with. This is because these Clock/Radios are short productions run items and they do not produce extra parts and service information outside the manufacturer. Sorry to give you the bad news.

Westclox model 22717


Hi faulkquarter

I take it that the clock displayed with this problem if not a 22717 model. The one I have sighted is a digital clock. Generally, you need to hold down the "time" button and also press the "hours" and "mins" buttons at the same time to set the time. If this is not how your clock appears, please give me the button names and I can write a method of changing the time for you.

regards
