    How does one align the alarm dial to set alarm on a Ingraham clock?

    I believe you manually rotate the alarm wheel in the dial until the hour at which you want the alarm to sound is behind the hour hand. David, owen.or

    That's correct. The alarm will be within around 15 minutes of where you set it, and be warned: it will wake the dead :) Don't wind more than a couple of turns, 'cause when it goes off the only way to stop it is wait for it to wind down.

    Sometimes turning the dial can be a royal pain (In my case, my waterbury kitchen clock). I sometimes wish there was more to grab onto than a little disk. Not sure if your alarm setting disk is placed inside the face or further out to grab. My waterbury has the dial placed inside of the face, so you have to cram your fingers in there to reach it. Nothing's wrong with the clock, but that was just how it was made. Nice clock, though! Make sure you rotate the disk in a clockwise manner.
