The Next Alarm sounds after passage of the time setting of the NEXT ALARM dial, starting from the point that the 1st alarm begins to sound. The Next Alarm also has a snooze feature. The alarm on/off setting affects both the 1st Alarm and the Next Alarm. You cannot turn the 1st Alarm and Next Alarm on and off individually.

Alarm setting dial TO USE THE ALARM The 1st Alarm starts to sound when the current time reaches the time indicated by the alarm hand. The 1st Alarm stops sounding when you press SNOOZE(/LIGHT) or after it has sounded for about one minute. After the amount of time set by the Next Alarm Dial passes, the Next Alarm starts to sound. Pressing SNOOZE(/LIGHT) stops the Next Alarm sound for about five minutes, after which it starts to sound again. In all, the Next Alarm will sound seven times. If you do not press SNOOZE(/LIGHT) after the Next Alarm starts to sound, it will stop automatically after about one minute. To deactivate the snooze feature so the alarm will not sound again, change the Alarm ON/OFF switch setting to OFF.
