A bit of wd40 or similar in the working gears, they get a bit of something in there and clog, in kitchens they get fat deposits..

Mine does the same thing. I contacted the manufacturer and they told me there's nothing I can do to fix it. They suggested I return it if it's under warranty (which it isn't). With no warranty they said there is no way to repair it.

SOURCE: I have a La Crosse wall clock, model WT-3102. It

Sounds like it is not picking up the radio signal.
Try placing it in a window overnight where the radio signals do not get obstructed.

SOURCE: The second hand on our LaCrosse atomic clock has

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.

SOURCE: Second hand has stopped working.

Hello
Just setup the clock once again by replacing the battery and check. If this also does not help you, the the press fitting of the second is loose. you have to open it to make it pressed firm.


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.
Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
OK.

The second hand on my wall clock won't go


Does the second hand move down if you move it to the one o'clock position? Usually the second hand doing that indicates a low battery, so I'd try that first. The old battery isn't strong enough to move the second hand up, but can still move it down.

Minute hand on atomic clock keeps moving


Take the battery out and put it back in the opposite direction. Wait 5 seconds. Put it back in the correct position. The minute hand will go around very fast and eventually come to a stop. This can take a couple days. That means it is waiting for a radio signal from Colorado. For a better signal, place the clock in a window that is facing Colorado. The minute hand will begin to spin very fast until it stops at the correct time. Again, this could take up to 2 days.

The hour and minute hands can be pushed onto their respective shafts at any point in most clocks.
If you already know the time that the alarm is set, let the clock run until it sounds.
When the alarm sounds, install the hour hand and the minute hand to the exact alarm set time. If, say, the alarm is set for 6:30, push the hour hand onto it's shaft at exactly half way between 6 and 7 and then push the minute hand onto it's shaft pointing at exactly 6.
I think this should get you operating.

Try to move the clock to a different place. Atomic clocks work by receiving a radio signal. If it has no reception, it may do that. However, I would suspect that no reception would lead to it not setting at all(at least based on the ones I've seen) and it may be something wrong with it (i.e. having difficulty detecting where it's hands are) Good luck.
