Equity Insta-Set clocks are available in five models, each with its own unique features. All Equity Insta-Set clocks automatically set the correct time and date when you turn on the power. Occasionally, the automatic time-setting feature malfunctions and you must reset the time yourself. Manually changing the time to the correct time on an Equity Insta-Set clock requires the push of only a few buttons to get the clock back on track.

Step 1

Press and hold the "Alarm Set" button for five to seven seconds if you have an Insta-Set 40001, 44100 or 44200 model; the year will begin to blink when the clock is ready for adjustment. If you have an Insta-Set 40009 or 40018, hold the "DST" button for five to seven seconds (until the hour begins to blink).
