You might of just blown the power supply / transformer inside of the unit, pull the back cover off and see if the transformer is blown, smells odd, and if you can read the fine print you might be able to replace just the transfomer. What voltage is it?

If you mean a US 120 volt clock radio was plugged into 220 volts -
it's shot - not to be fixed

I have a kenmore 790.9021 electric range. The burners and broil world but the oven doesn't. Have changed the element with another and that isn't the problem. Clock and everything else works fine

Below is from the Sears website, you might happen to have the opposite half of the 220 volts working where your clock works and theirs didn't. The other possibility is that a relay or triac (electronic component) on the control board is no longer working.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details it sounds like a problem with the incoming power supply. The line one (L1) voltage supply is not likely supplying the voltage to the clock. When a burner is turned on, the line two (L2) voltage is passing through the burner and switch providing the line one voltage to the clock which will then power up. This could be caused by one of the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the range has tripped or your missing the Line One voltage supply to the range. It could also be an issue with the circuit breaker or the incoming voltage supply to the breaker or wiring issue within the range.

The first thing that should be checked and confirmed is the voltage supply to the range where the power cord is attached. There will be three terminals on the terminal block. The voltage must measure 220-240 volts when measuring across the two outside terminals. The voltage must also measure 110-120 across the center terminal to each outside terminal.

NOTE: I do not recommend measuring voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I strongly recommend calling a service technician to diagnose the failure.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.

Most likely the clock radio is damaged beyond repair. If it can be repaired it may cost nearly a much as a new clock radio.

My Tivoli radio overheated and doesnt work anymore

This is not good, the voltage in Europe is 220 and normally the damage it creates to a 110 unit is catatrophic, the only suggestion I can make is allow a technician to check it to see if it can be restored to operational mode.

Bought a used iPal and it only came with a european compatible plug. I bought a US converter. Plugged it in and can't make sense of it. The radio doesn't work. When off, there's no green light....

If the radio has a European-style plug, it's probably expecting 220-volt power since that's their standard. If you got a plug adapter but not a voltage converter, the radio won't work because the line voltage is too low.

Check the radio for a ratings label which will tell you for sure what the radio expects. There may be a selector switch on the back which will let the radio work on our line voltage. Otherwise you'll need to purchase a voltage converter to use the radio.

Over-voltage connection - 220v - instead of 110v

That thing is fried.If you can do your own electronic repair,there are a few components where the plug comes in that would be cheap to replace.Without a solder gun and voltage meter though I would replace.

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!
