This is what i found:
Clock Setting
The clock can be only set while the unit is in standby mode
1. While the unit is in standby mode, press the TIME_SET button into clock setting. The LED
display will start flashing, press REV/DOWN or FF/UP to select 12h display or 24h display.
Confirm your setting by press TIME_SET again
2. While the unit is in standby mode, press and hold the TIME_SET button for 2-3 seconds, the
hours will start flashing, press REV/DOWN or FF/UP to set the current hour, press the
TIME_SET button to confirm the setting, then the minutes will start flashing, press
REV/DOWN or FF/UP to set the current minutes, press the TIME_SET again to confirm all
setting. The time is now set

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.
