Clock radio I plugged my General Electric Model 7-4612B clock radio in while traveling Australia in a 220 V socket. I later found out my clock is only wired for 120 V usage and it no longer works. Is there an easy fix, or would it be cheaper to throw it in the garbage?

    that 120 V usage tricked somebody else also.
    there is no internal fuse ,the transformer indication are ~80v for the blue-white output and 1.07v for the red-black output. what parts other then the transformer could be damaged?

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!

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.

I have the S1721 Travel Soother Radio Alarm Clock. It has stopped & a radio technician said it can't be fixed. It is THE best radio on the planet because it has a radio timer. I cannot find anything...


I came home and found a weird display showing 12 00 and ______f. Nothing worked, even when I unplugged it and took the batteries out. (I really, really like this clock radio so I wanted to find a solution).

I looked for a "reset" button and found one in the back inside the battery case (you have to remove the battery case cover). I took a pin and pressed it into the reset slot. I had to do this several times, turning it on/off and pressing several buttons and plugging, unplugging the clock/radio. It cycled through several times, then slowly the functions started to return, almost one function at a time. After several cycles of this, it turned itself back on and started working again!

Static occurs when movement in the room


This problem sound like you have had some damaged to the earth ground in your electrical wiring system. You should have a electrician thoroughly test the electrical outlets and wiring in your house or apartment. You should be very careful using any electronic equipment with a problem like this. Your Clock/Radio should be unplugged from the a/c wall socket and the internal battery removed. This will allow the microprocessor that controls all the Clock/Radios functions to reset. The Clock/Radio should be left unplugged for a period of a few hours to discharge the microprocessor. This will help the microprocessor to heal itself from the lightning strike. You will need to get the ceiling light fixed. There might be a shorted wire or something causing its failure. This could also be a burnt wire. Lightning power overloads can be very dangerous to all electric and electronic equipment. Try putting your clock Radio on a rubber mat to isolate it from any traveling static electricity that may be in the air. Try to discharge any static electricity that may have built up on your hands by discharging it on a piece of metal like a screw driver or metal surface.Do this each time before you try to use the clock/Radios button functions. This will stop further damage from occurring during you handling of the Clock/Radio. After discharging the microprocessor, reassemble the battery into the Clock/Radio and plug in the wall socket. The operation should return to normal. If not you may have more serious damage to the microprocessor. You can call the Emerson Customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020. Give then the make and model number of your Clock/ Radio and ask them for assistance. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
