Important Notice About Daylight Saving Time (DST) and
Emerson SmartSet® Clocks and Clock Radios
Congress recently passed a new Energy Bill which includes a provision to extend Daylight Savings Time. At the beginning of 2007, Daylight Savings time will begin on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November. Because of this change your SmartSet® Clock or Clock Radio will need to be updated.
In order to set your unit we will need the following information from you:
1. Model Number
You can find your model number on the back or bottom of your unit.
(Click here for an example)
2. Serial Number
You can find your serial number on the back or bottom of your unit. (Click here for an example)
Based on this information we can identify which setting is necessary to adjust your unit for compliance with day light savings. There are three possible groups your SmartSet® Clock or Clock Radio could fall into: Group One changes the time zone to a previous time zone.
Group Two adjusts for the spring and fall settings.
Group Three is already set for 2007 daylight savings compliance.
Group identification begins with your serial number. The first three to four digits of the serial number represent the year and month of manufacture. (If your serial number begins with 0607, that would indicate July 2006, 506 would indicate June 2005.)
Models manufactured before January 2006 (serial number 506, 512, etc.) will follow Group One settings.
Models manufactured between January 2006 and July 2006 (serial number 0601, 0603, etc.) will follow Group Two settings.
Models manufactured after July 2006 (serial numbers beginning with 0608) are Group Three and do not require any changes.
