    This is the most user un-friendly clock radio i have ever owned. I can never get the alarm or nap turned off and it get turned on too easily - like when it's being dusted. The cancel button doesn't turn it off. I'm ready to throw it away, unless i can get a manual somewhere.

    I have a similar problem: I can set the time and cancel the time for my alarm. However, there seems to be a second "alarm" that goes off (conveniently) at 12 am every night. This I cannot seem to change. Every night all I can do is hit the off button, but there is no way to change

Press the Cancel button. While the wake mode LED is blinking (either alarm or radio) press the Wake Mode button. The wake mode LED should now be off. To turn off the Nap function before the alarm sounds, press and hold the Nap button for 3-5 seconds. The Nap LED should stop blinking and be off.

There should be an option during initial set up that allows you to disable the alarm function. You may have to disconnect power, then apply power again to repeat set up.

How to turn off alarm on GE radio Model 7-4853c


The manual says to "DISABLE THE ALARM PERMANENTLY" you should:

"Press and hold WAKE 1 or WAKE 2 until the green indicator disappears."

I did this and the light indicator to the right of the clock digital readout went out after a few seconds. I won't know until tomorrow if the alarm is permanently disabled.

Need manual for Travel Companion Model S1500 Alarm Clock


Travel alarm clocks can have varying instructions, depending on the type of clock you are using. Here are some tips for use that will apply to any alarm clock.

  1. Power source
    • Travel alarm clocks will need to have some sort of power source. Depending on the type of alarm clock, it might be battery-powered or it might have a cord that needs to be plugged in. Battery-powered alarm clocks can take mini watch batteries, AAA batteries or sometimes AA batteries. Travel alarm clocks, because of their tiny size, usually have the small batteries that need to be bought from a watch store or a dollar store. Before you leave, make sure you have a working power source and can turn it on.
    Changing the time
    • After you reach your final destination, power the alarm clock on. Now you'll need to set the time and date correctly. Check a watch, cell phone or television to get the exact time and locate the buttons or dials on your alarm clock. On some, there will be a "time" or an "hour" button you need to press and hold to activate the alarm time change. While you are holding it down, turn the dial, press the hour button or press the (+) button until you notice a time change. On others, simply pressing the hour or minute button will let you change the time shown.
    Setting AM/PM
    • The AM/PM option is critical in setting your alarm clock correctly. Make sure the LCD display on your clock has a light beside the correct AM or PM setting, or look for the letters AM or PM on the display. If you get this wrong, the alarm won't go off in the morning!
    Setting alarm time
    • To set the alarm time, look for a button or a switch that says alarm. If there is a switch, move it to the alarm setting. If it is a button, you'll need to hold it down until the time starts flashing, signaling time to change the hours and minutes to the desired alarm time, or hold it down while you press the hours and minutes buttons to reach the alarm time you want.
    Turn alarm on
    • Now double-check that your regular and alarm times are correct by switching the switch back and forth again, or by pressing the alarm/time buttons long enough to read the time set. There should be a picture of a bell somewhere on your LCD display showing that the alarm is set to "on." If there isn't, look for the on/off alarm button and move it to the correct position.
    Music options
    • The last step is finding the alarm wake-up option. Not all travel alarm clocks have this option, but if yours does there will be a switch or button that lets you choose to wake up by a buzzer, the radio, a CD, or another device.

I have model #7-4837B AM/FM radio alarm clock. User manual has been misplaced and I am unable to disable the alarm.


On the top of the alarm clock is a CANCEL button. Press the button and the light next to the WAKE MODE indicator on the front of the clock will begin to flash. Press the WAKE MODE button on the top of the clock. The WAKE MODE indicator will go out and the alarm is off. If you want the alarm back on just press the WAKE MODE button again.

GE doesn't make this kind of product any longer but
on their site they say to call 1-800-447-1700 for assistance. Maybe someone there can find a copy of the instructions for you.

Alarms will not work


Hi. Often following a power outage there is a power surge when the power is restored. If you do not have your Bose protected by plugging it into a surge protector, an internal fuse will blow to protect the rest of the radio. Once that fuse is replaced you will be back up and running. J.

I need an instruction manual for my RCA Clock Radio Model RP3750A. Can't turn off the alarm - want radio to come on with the radio and not the alarm.


There are three buttons under the heading "Dual Wake", WK1, Cancel, WK2. The WK buttons refer to the two wake time settings you can have. Press Cancel and then WKx. That will turn off the alarm. If you press WKx more than once, it will cycle through small symbols on the bottom of the screen with the number x in front of them. First symbol means it will have a sound alarm for alarm x, second symbol means it will have a radio alarm and the third symbol means it will play the CD to alarm. You set the time for alarm with the slide switch at the back of the unit, selecting WK1 for alarm 1 and WK2 for alarm 2. You can have both alarms active at once, or either one singly.

To turn the alarm back on, simply press the WAKE Mode button on the top of the device.
