INSTALLATION
Unravel the AC cord and connect it to a conveniently

9V
If the AC cord is disconnected or if there is a power
failure, this electronic clock is designed to continue operating internally (without
showing the time on the Clock Display) with a 9 volt
battery (not included). To install the battery, open the
battery compartment by pressing in the tab and lifting off
the door. Connect the battery to the terminals of the
battery snap inside the compartment (use of an alkaline
battery is recommended) and slide the battery
compartment cover into place.
Be sure to check the condition of the battery periodically
by disconnecting the AC cord and connecting it again 2 or
3 minutes later. The preset times should continue
operating. If a flashing time appears on the Clock Display,
it indicates the battery is dead or not connected properly. The 9 volt battery will keep
the internal time accurately for approximately 30 minutes. If the power is restored after
30 minutes, the time may need to be reset.
