The solution is to buy a new radio. Clock radios cost as little as $12 on Amazon.

    I am 24 years old and this is the oldest item I still have. Got it when I was 5 or 6 for Christmas and would be upset if I ever encounter a problem with this tech mech late 80's alarm clock. I'm still wondering what year it actually is; I can't seem to find any information on that.

If the electric motor says 120/240 then yes. It it only says 120 on the data plate then no. I have attached a good read for you. Should you change your motor from 120V to 240V

I have a frigidaire electric stove,model # 316433603 there is power to the stove the only working is the clock

General answer for all electric stoves: Electric stoves are usually 220V in the USA. The clock is 120V. My first "guess" is that you have 120v to your clock and maybe light if the stove has one. You should have a separate 220v power cable ( see photo attached) that will power the range itself. The cord may be missing ( simple to unbolt), the cord my be unplugged, or the 220 circuit may be turned off at the fuse box or circuit breaker.

My oven is dead - no display, no nothing. Circuit breakers are fine. Turned them off overnight, still nothing on oven this morning. This happened about a year ago but oven came on again ten minutes...

What you need to check is for power at the clock.TURN OFF BREAKER gain access to clock and use volt meter. One the clock will be wires maked L1 & N on those 2 wires when breaker is turned back on their should be 120 vac. IF 120 vac at those 2 wires,replace the clock, if not 120 vac into clock check for burnt/broken wires

Everything I read says this is a 120VAC Single pole breaker.

There is a 120/240 version THQB1120AF that is also a 20A

This link shows a picture of one but please NOTE the link is for a reconditioned CB

Here is a link for a NEW breaker:

^--Seems a bit pricey to me. I would shop around. I have seen these in the $80.00 range but never thought to look to see if they were new or re-conditioned until today.

There is no way I would use your THQB1120GF on a 220VAC circuit.

Clock radio

Unless thate is an internal fuse it that blew, most likely it will be more expensive to repair than replace. The transformer primary winding is probably burned out. You have nothing to lose, take it apart and see if there is a fuse. If so, replace it with the EXACT same value as the original. If not, its not worth fixing.

You didn't say what the symptoms were, other than it didn't work anymore. I am assuming it is completely dead.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
