    The most frequent reason is confusing AM & PM.

    There's no reason, but probably user error. Some alarm clocks are not user friendly, and have features like multiple alarms, and sleep timers that can easily drive someone mad if they can't figure out how to set or unset it correctly.

    The simplest cause is user error, eg. confusing AM/PM in either the alarm time or clock time setting.

    The other common reason is a power failure, that partly resets or randomises the settings in the clock.

    It's broken.
