I have a Curtis Model No KCR2609 Undercounter CD Clock Radio. The volume is way too loud and I can't turn it down. When I turn the volume all the way to "1" its just as loud as the highest volume...I turn it to "0" and it goes off. Can you help?

Try running the stereo on batteries or an external AC adapter. I suspect there is a bad filter capacitor in the stereo's built-in power supply, causing the power-line hum when you use it plugged in. This is a common failure.
There's usually only one or two capacitors (cylinder-shaped parts, found near the connections where the AC power comes in) used. Radio Shack and other electronic parts places would have suitable replacements. Capacitors are measured in microfarads, abbreviated uf or mfd on the part, and they also have a voltage rating. The value isn't critical as long as you don't go below what's marked. In fact, it's usually best to get a replacement with the next higher voltage rating. Under-rating the part to keep cost down is why they fail in the first place. These parts have polarity markings, so be sure you get the + and - leads right.
This is a simple repair for someone with some experience replacing parts and doing electronic soldering. A service shop could certainly do it, but it might cost almost as much as a replacement stereo. This might be a good time to find out which of your friends likes to tinker.
HELLO,DO YOU HAVE A PART # FOR YOUR CD PLAYER ? TO GET A USER MANUAL I'LL NEED IT.ALSO IS IT A WALKMAN OR A CLOCK RADIO ? ECT WHAT TYPE OF CD PLAYER IS IT ? MOST HAVE A REPEAT OPTION OR BUTTON YOU CAN PUSH TO REPEAT THAT SONG IF IT DOES HAVE THE REPEAT OPTION THEN JUST HIT IT WHEN THE CD PLAYER GETS TO THAT SONG TO REPEAT IT OVER AND OVER OR LOOP IT THEN TO TAKE IT OFF AND PLAY NORMAL HIT IT AGAIN
Make sure the cd is snapped into place, and the speakers are plugged in to the correct jacks (right speaker, left speaker specific). Turn the unit on and press the function button (far left) until you see "CD" - the other functions are "RADIO" and "AUX" - you should be able to adjust volume, track numbers, etc. If that doesn't work, you might have a lemon --- 90 day warranty, so be sure to get it back!
