Question about Tivoli Henry Kloss Model Two FM/AM Radio

1 Answer

Hum but no other sound

My 3 year old Model Two has been working fine until about 6 months ago. At that time, it would play for a few hours and then the music would stop with a 'click' and the radio would generate a hum. Turning it off and on later would repeat the cycle. If this is heat related, it is not because of the location of the radio which has plenty of air-flow and is sitting on an open counter. It has not suffered any electrical or mechanical damage.

The problem has escalated and the radio will do nothing but hum now. Does this radio have a 'known problem' with a particular weak component? Has anyone had any success repairing this radio. When it worked, it was perfect for my application.

    Fixed it.
    I cracked the Model Two open and took a peek inside. I fully expected this to be as about a lame an exercise as when I open the hood of may car expecting to see a big yellow circle around the problem part. But lo and behold, with a little poking around I identified the problem. One of the internal plugs was loose; I unplugged it completely and reseated it with a 'click'. Tried the radio and shazam - music.

You most likely have a bad filter capacitor. i assume you run this radio on ac power.
the cap is the largest one inside the radio be sure to put the same values back mf and dc volts.

Hi. As for a warranty, most battery suppliers give a 6 month warranty or a 1-year warranty. The machine will take 35 amp/hour batteries. Make a few phone calls around your area, and go for the best price and best warranty.
Good luck. Neil.

Siemens Condensor Dryer E46-38. After a few


Mine is 4 years old and the pump went within 8 months! The dryer has had 6 new pumps in total! It was last fixed 6 months ago and now playing up again! I dont even constantly use my dryer! I am very disappointed with Siemens now, my last dryer lasted me 10 years and it was constantly on the go when my children were young! Here comes, tomorrow I have got to book another repair! No more Siemens for me.

System shuts off and turns to red light standby


Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!
