    On my Android 5.1 I have a weird alarm on the Home screen and in the notification area.
    I don't know where it comes from and can't get rid of it.
    That Alarm is NOT visible in the Date/Time App !!!

    Joined are two Pics
    Pic1 :
    Showing the Alarm (Sun 10:00) and the Icon in the Notification Area
    Pic2 : Showing a new alarm I added together with a SECOND Icon in the Notification Area

    When the alarm of Pic2 is terminated, I'm back on the Pic1 situation.

    I tried already to remove/add the widget and had a look in all sort of Apps.
    Can't find a way to get rid of that alarm

    Any Ideas where / how I can see where it comes from ? How to remove it ?

    Use your clock app to remove or shut off the alarm

    In Android, the extra alarm icon usually appears 30 mins before the alarm time. So, the extra icon in the 2nd pic makes sense.

    As I wrote : That Alarm is NOT visible in the Date/Time App !!! = Clock App
    So I can't remove it there

    The second alarm icon is always there (see Pic 1)

    Just tested with an new added alarm hours away : the new alarm-time is shown on the home-screen but with only 1 alarm icon (see Pic3)
    So because the alarm is further away, no related Icon is shown for it. The icon shown is related to the problematic weird alarm.

    Pic2: See also the location in the notification area of the alarm icon's. One in left area, the erractic one in the right area

    you can also check your notifiactions that have been sent. it should be in your phone's settings.........that is if the alarm is on the notification side.
