The time is about 20 minutes ahead...
I used to put all my clocks at the "radio" time, until I realized that I was late everywhere!!! LOL!
And realized that the clock is ahead of its time!
Can it be fixed Doc?

The next time it gongs multiple times turn the hour hand clockwise until it is pointing at the number of times it gonged. Next take off the dial nut off (make sure to put it in a plastic bag because they can be hard to replace) and turn the minute hand until it strikes once. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 6 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set. Fix Clock That Gongs Wrong
I have the same clock radio and I found out that you have to hold down the button and run through the times. The hour will change with the minutes. It goes pretty fast once you hold down the button, so I stop when I get close (like within 20 minutes of where I need it to be) and then click it one minute at a time until it's at the right time.
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.
Hold the 'Clock' button until the display flashes. It will first show

the time. Use + and - to set your time and press 'Clock' again.
Don't expect this clock to set the time by itself. It is not an atomic clock.
If it's an older clock it's set on the old (later) daylight saving time schedule, and there's nothing you can do to modify that. Your choices are to set it manually now, realizing that it will "spring ahead" again in a week or two, or replace it with a new clock that's programmed for the new schedule.

Set the display to time by pressing the tittle button. once time is displayed, press tittle button and hold until the time starts blinking. now adjust hour using arrow keys. now press mode once and use arrow keys for adjusting minutes. press mode again. now the time is set.
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
Press the SET button until you cycle through the alarms and the Colons on the time start to flash. use the right and left arrows from the CD buttons to adjust time; After time is set; press the SET button. Be careful to not fat finger and hit the CD button when pressing the SET buttons. That will turn on the AWFUL NAP timer. That's another headache.
.Stop the Nap alarmPress NAP to start NAP flashing. Press and hold NAP to cancel the napsetting. If this does not work; try again. It seems to take me a time or 2 to get it to work.
