Question about La Crosse Radio Controlled Atomic Clock
Our laCross kitchen wall clock keeps resetting itself from both EST time to DST. Without any prodding from myself. On the effective date of DST, the clock prefectly reset. It lasted for about a week; Now, on a daily basis, usually somewhere between 5 and 7PM, it resets itself to EST. Yet, when I awake in the morning, it will once again reset itself to the correct DST.
I also have a wall Den clock that does practically the same thing. I move that clock to a window in another room. It automatically resets to DST. Then when i return it to its proper location, between 5 and 7PM, it reset to EST. It will stay that way until I move it to that window.
Perplexed!!! thanks for the help

I have a mantle clock version and to set the clock to recognize the radio signal, I need to hold down both the ET and PT time zone buttons for a few seconds. The clock hands will then continue to move until they reset themselves to the correct time.

It may be a manufacturing defect. I'm an electronics tech in S. Florida and all the LaCrosse clocks (WT-3126) in our new building read an hour earlier than is correct. Complaints to the factory resulted in new clocks being sent to replace the originals...sounds like a manufacturing problem to me because the new ones (WT-3122) work fine.

The clock is searching for a strong enough radio signal from NIST station WWVB. When it can't lock on it, it gives up, moves the dial four hours, and goes to sleep to wait for better reception. Put the clock in a window facing towards Boulder, CO, overnight. (Radio propagation is better after dark.)

The manual for one of their clocks says the clock will change the second hand to two-second intervals to conserve energy when the battery voltage gets low. Perhaps your battery is VERY low.
