How Do I Change the Time on My Zenith Clock Radio?

By Stephen Lilley

In addition to acting as regular AM/FM radios, clock radios from Zenith also have alarm functionality built in. For this alarm feature to work, however, the correct time must be set on the unit in the first place. To change the time on your Zenith clock radio you're going to need to push a few very specific buttons in unison, and then adjust the time according to your specific time zone.

Step 1

Make sure the power cord that runs off of the rear of your Zenith clock radio is plugged into a power outlet. If you have never set the time on your unit before, the red numbers on the front display panel will be flashing. If the time has been set on your unit before, they will be steady.

Step 2

Press the "Hour" button. Continue to hold this button while pressing the "Time Set" button to adjust the "Hour" time setting on the front of your Zenith clock radio. When you've reached the correct time, you can stop holding the "Hour" button.

Step 3

Press the "Minutes" button. Continue to hold this button while pressing the "Time Set" button to adjust the "Minutes" time setting on the front of your Zenith clock radio. When you've reached the correct time, you can stop holding the "Minutes" button. Your Zenith clock radio will now be set properly.
