When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (2 seconds per step x 4 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.

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.

Hands started spinning and won't stop. I replaced battery - still spinning


Remove the battery and replace with a new one. Just because.
Depress the tab on the back of the clock mechanism firmly (it pushes in a button beneath it) 22 times. While you're pressing the tab, the hands will begin to rotate. They will stop at 12 , 4 or 8 o'clock.

Place the clock in a window where it will be able to receive the radio signal.

Next morning the clock should have re-set to U.S. Pacific time. Press the on the clock mechanism that corresponds to your time zone and you should now have the correct time again.

Remote that gives outside temp does not work put in new batteries, still does not work!


Pull the batteries out of the clock, wait a minute, and then put them back in. That will reset the link between the two. The temperature should be OK in just a few minutes. The clock will read the wrong time and date until it resets during the night. The next day, all will be well.

Screwed up electronics in 2003 Hyundai Sonata


Sound like the vehicles ECU (electronic control unit) is acting up. All electronics are controled through this module as well as the features your car is programed with. Many manufacturers have different names for these modules but they all perform the same tasks. Your best bet is to bring it to a dealer where they can hook up a computer whith their diagnostic software in it to pinpoint the problem. All electronics in vehicles are controled by modules which are like mini computers.

Needles flying around the clock


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.
