Before you Begin
Plugging in for power:
- Connect the power adapter to a convenient wall outlet.
- Once connected with power, the clock flashes. Refer to the Clock section for instructions on properly setting the Clock.
Battery back-up operation
- This clock is equipped with a timekeeping system that can be powered with 2 AAA batteries (not included).
The power failure protection circuit will not operate unless batteries are installed.
- When normal household power is interrupted, the batteries will power the clock to keep track of time and alarm settings programmed into memory.
- Normal operation will resume after AC power is restored so you will not have to reset the time or the alarm.
To install the batteries:
- Remove battery compartment door (located at the bottom of the clock) by applying thumb pressure to the tab on battery door and then lift the door out and off the cabinet.
- Insert 2 AAA batteries (not included) to the battery compartment.
- Replace the compartment door.
Power failure indicator: If you have not installed 2 AAA batteries (not included) in the product, or the batteries run out while power is interrupted, all the settings (clock and alarm) will be lost.
After AC power is restored, the Digital Display will flash to indicate that power was interrupted and you should readjust the time settings.
Note: It is recommended to replace the batteries at least once per year even if no power failures have occurred.
