Question about Aiwa FR-A530 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Slowdown more than an hour

I have brought one of this clock to China and plug it on a 110V outlet since the clock is compatible with 110V. But weird thing happens, it slow down almost one hour during eight hours usage. I DO set up the time right. And I've tried two or three 110V outlets already, still slow down.

Maybe the clock is trying to set itself back to its home time;)

Depending on which parts of china you're in, there may be radio wavelengths that is interfering with clock you have, therefore, slowing down the transmitter. of the time.

What is the voltage required to run rival hand mixer?


This plugs into a standard 120v household outlet, it's only 150 watts, running 10 of these is like one hair dryer. Most products say 110v, 115v in the USA.

The actual voltage is around 120v at the breaker panel and around 118v at the outlet.

But all products marked 110v, 115, 117, all work on a standard outlet.

How to Verify Power from a 110V Outlet


Video about How to Verify Power from a 110V Outlet


  • The first step of troubleshooting a power issue with a machine equipped with a power cord is to verify that the outlet being used is working



    • This video demonstrates a simple method of testing the outlet




  • Make sure that the outlet and appliance have matching plug and receptacle before plugging in



    • Failure to do so could result in injury and/or damage to electrical circuit and/or appliance




  • This procedure is a quick and easy way to test the functionality of a 110 volt outlet


  • Plug in a small appliance such as the fan used in the video and make sure the appliance works



    • If so, you know that the outlet is not your problem




  • You could also use a light, small lamp, or radio for this test



    • Any small appliance that you can plug in and turn on and know the appliance is working




  • This completes our demonstration of testing a 110V outlet for power

My Bose radio will not turn on. I plug it in and the radio lights up and then it goes dead this all happens in about 60 seconds...any suggestions ? I am in Xian China the radio worked fine prior to coming...


Hi,
If that unit came from the states, the power would be 110V and in China tjhe voltage they use is 220V.
That means, you have to check the fuse in the radio, replace if it is already open.If the fuse is still okay, the power circuit has a burned parts.
My advise is to send it to a electronic tech or the nearby service center.
Hope that helps!

How to use it if we have 220V outlet?


If the AC unit is 110V then you must plug it into a regular 110V outlet. You cannot plug it into the 220V outlet. Either get a bigger 220V unit or use a 12 gauge extension cord to get it to a 110V outlet.

I want to put machine in my house but need 110 motor instead of 220. nothing wrong with motor or control box


I'm assuming that you brought a vacuum cleaner from a country that uses 220V to a country that uses 110V.

You either have to change the motor to a 110V motor, or find a way of plugging the cleaner into a 220V supply.

You could contact the manufacturer and ask them if they have a 110V replacement motor for your model. (Safety warning... it will take double the electrical current, which will cause four times the heating in the cable; this could be dangerous.)

A better solution would be to have an electrician fit a 220V outlet in your house. The pin arrangement will be different to prevent 110V deviced being plugged in to it. You'll have to cut the existing plug and replace it with the correct one for that voltage for your country. (I have used a British 'Dyson' in this way, plugged in to a tumble-dryer outlet; I use a GFI for extra safety.)

Moved back to South Africa from Los Angeles. Brought my Bose wave with me. 110V in the U.S., 220V in South Africa. Any advice how to make it work here. Don't want to damage it in any way. Please...


You need to get a stepdown autotransformer that takes the 220~240vac input and step it down to 120vac (BOSE can handle 50 or 60Hz line frequency), the problem will be getting one with the NEMA5-15R US style outlet so you can plug your BOSE into this step down autotransformer.

Stove top or oven does not work however, clock


check your 220v outlet, you could have 110v and not the needed 220v to operate the elements. If you only have 110v at the outlet the one side of the double breaker is bad

Doesn't work


Sorry it took so long to help you. You should have returned the Clock/Radio to the place of purchase for exchange. The Clock/Radio has had problem with component failure. This is probably happen during its shipping from china to the USA. This does happen unfortunately. Shipping can be the cause of many problem with electronic equipment. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

Electric Dryer


If your dryer came with a 4-prong plug, do not change it. For the very reasons you quoted with the article, you may screw up the 110v accessories required of your appliance (like the clock or digital display). It is best to change the household outlet to a 4-prong type. Just make sure your wiring is correct. You will need a neutral on the 4th leg, which means you will probably have to run new wiring from the outlet to the distribution panel.
