The "day" date jumps every 12 hours instead of every 24. Have tried setting before noon & after noon and date will advance when it reaches the next "12:00"

Hi Peter French,

Just to clarify, the date is advancing weather the time is set to 12:00am or 12:00pm, correct?  If that is the case, please try the following reset procedure to see if that will correct the issue.

The following steps should help to resolve any issues you have been experiencing with your unit.

Before proceeding with the reset, please check your batteries. We recommend that the batteries meet the following criteria:

• Verify you are using standard alkaline batteries such as Rayovac or Energizer in the display. Lithium batteries, Rechargeable batteries, as well as batteries that indicate a heavy-duty quality are not recommended, and may cause irregularities.)
• Verify that you are using a fresh set of batteries. The battery expiration date should be at least 6 years out. Batteries can lose 3% of their power or more every year in storage.

1. Remove all the batteries from the display unit
2. Allow to sit for 5 minutes with no power.
3. Inside the battery compartment of the display there is a white sticker with 4 numbers on it, please reply with those numbers
4. Reinstall batteries into the display.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      5. Set time for 11:57pm and verify that when it turns 12:00am that the date changes properly                                                                                                                                                      6. Set time for 11:57am and verify that when it turns 12:00pm that the date does not change.

If that does not resolve the problem, please let us know.

Thank you
