VIKIS Alarm Clock Instructions

VIKIS Alarm Clock

Good News.  It seems as though I was not the only one to throw my VIKIS alarm clock manual out and confused as to how to set it after said tragic misstep.  A lot of good folks have been looking for answers. I am pleased and happy to provide real direction, or that is to say, “Here are the instructions, People!”

After a thorough search online and on Ikea’s website, all for naught, it dawned on me to e-mail Ikea for help.  I received a very courteous response and most importantly, a true, blue set of instructions to operating the puzzling VIKIS settings.  I am retyping them for legibility’s sake because they came to me in the form of a blurry PDF.  Enjoy and celebrate our re-found knowledge as provided below:


The SET and MODE buttons are used to set the various functions of the clock. Please see below for a more detailed description and illustrations.
The LIGHT button is used to set switch on the background lighting.

1.  Press the SET button 4 times to display MONTH. Use the MODE button to set the correct mPress the SET button once more to display the day.
2.  Press the SET button one more time to display HOURS. Use the MODE button to set the correct hour. Note that A/P or H appears to the right of the display. A = A.M. P = P.M. H = 24 hour clock. (Choose the desired format by pressing MODE button.)
3. Press the SET button one more time to display MINUTES. Use the MODE button to set the correct minute value.
4. To save the settings you have entered, press set and then MODE.


Press the MODE button to see the current settings.
Press 1 time to show current alarm time.
Press 2 times to show the current date.
Press 3 times to show current seconds (Press SET to zero the seconds.)
Press 4 times to return to current time.


To set the alarm:
Press the SET button once and then press the MODE button to activate the alarm function. Press SET one more time and use the MODE button to set the hour for the alarm signal.
1. Press SET again and use the MODE button to set the minutes for the alarm signal.
2. Press SET again to save these settings.


1. To switch off the signal when the alarm rings, press the SET button.
2. You can also choose to switch off the alarm signal temporarily with the MODE button. If you use this so called “snooze” function, the alarm will sound every 5 minutes until you switch it off completely by pressing the SET button.


1. Press the SET button once and then press the MODE button to activate or deactivate the alarm and hourly signal functions;

    Nothing is showing on my screen. Only the light button is working. Is there something wrong?

      Either there is something wrong with with the clock or the batteries may have run out. That’s my guess. Hope that helps.

    Did you delete the instructions for the clock?

    • Hi Lily,

      The instruction are there now. They got buried or erased when I had a programmer move some things around. So, I dug them up and typed them up again. I hope that you find them and that they are useful. Best.

    Why not leave the instructions on this page and put some advertising here to compensate yourself? Of course people are here just for the instructions – you are ranked first in a Google search when looking for the manual. Be thankful for the traffic you are receiving as just about everyone who visits for these instructions would have otherwise not known about your site to begin with. It would be better to promote your site from this page in a more creative way rather than just removing the content people are looking for (positive reinforcement, not negative). You are not being ‘used’. You are a resource, like just about every other place on the internet.

    you saved my sanity. thank you sooo much. i’ve had this clock for several years and it was set about 28 minutes fast and i would just figure that in to tell the time. i would never try to change it for daylight savings … just added another calculation. LOL. today i decided to google for instructions and yours are the first set that made any sense whatsoever. thanks again.

  19. Hi there mates, its fantastic paragraph on the topic of tutoringand fully
    defined, keep it up all the time.

  20. Grace

    Thank you so very much. Had to change the time re going off Daylight Savings Time and could not find my little instruction sheet. Had put it in a “safe” place. Thought I might be able to do it intuitively. Who was I kidding! Thanks so much.

  22. I Formatted the content in printable A4.
    It can be downlloaded as .pdf or .odf from:

    This download may not be available for long, so it would be good if it was somehow attached to this page.

  23. Grace

    Thank you for your post…I accidently set the alarm on this to go off at 12:08 am when I tried to reset the time…well you know where this is going. I almost threw out the clock, very grateful.

  24. Byron

    Thanks very much. We have an odd problem. The clock dropped and hit the floor. Still works but now the display is upside down. Anyone else seen this and/or know how to set it back? It works fine.

  25. Shane
