    Hi! I'm trying to fix zenith c472w-3 Alarm Clock Radio. I'm looking for any information how works the system "Touch 'n Snooze". I tried find any manual on the web but not found it.

    Just two contacts built-in for mechanism and when I click snooze button it connect and start radio. I thought that there should be other way around. )

    Apparently I just do not understand how to operate this mechanism was originally.

    Who has such a watch, or just know, please write it here. THANKS!

    I suspect 78Rus, that you have two snoozing choices after the alarm sounds. One, nine or ten minutes of silence after which the alarm again sounds its "wake-up" sound or two, snooze along for a few minutes to the sound from the radio; news, weather, sports or soft music, you've pre-selected at the loudness you've set the volume control.

    No other changes on the loudness dial. If i set alarm with roll dial (left) it works, until i set left hand to "off" position. If after i pressed snooze button (white on the top), it starts radio again until end of time.

    And i not understand differences between position "auto, radio" and position "auto, radio, alarm".
    Control of the alarm by using only two pins. The situation on or off. If alarm tripped, it connected two pins and radio is ON. If i press SNOOZE button it connected two pins too and radio ON.

    With Auto/Radio, expect to be awakened by radio only. With Auto/Radio/Alarm, expect to be awakened by radio followed by alarm after short time.

    Thanks for the info. I has already sorted out. I wonder what the buzzer was electromechanical and works with the magnetic field motor. Very cool!

    I would like to know that the model of the clock mechanism is used? In my copy was broken ring seconds. I have it restored but minutes are not moving smoothly. Need for some instructions or a scheme of this mechanism. Or pictures of the ring seconds.
