When turning the crank, the spring slips, and the crank flies back to original position. Spring will not wind up.

One day while cranking the freeplay PLUS Radio on a job site with no power, something inside snapped, and made a horrid grinding noise. All of my co - workers laughed. From then on I only used the radio with the AC plug in adapter.
After 8 years of keeping the freeplay plugged in to listen to it I finally decided to open it up and take a look.
Low, and behold I found some broken pieces that looked like a belt. HMMM?
After a little more investigating I found the 2 drive wheels that power the generator... with no belt on them. I looked in my junk drawer, and found a small blue rubber band amongst the others that I save from packaging items. It looked suitable to do the task. After stretching it around the generator drive wheels, I cranked it up, and IT WORKED!
I'm still waiting to see how long this fix works, but in a pinch... keep some rubber bands and a phillips head screwdriver around. This may be the same problem your having. I'm now getting the long lost last laugh.

Hope this helps! KMT

The crank on my radio stopped working. No friction produced.

The drive gear is plastic and has either stripped or become loose. You will need to open the radio to verify the problem with the plastic gear. Then you will need to act accordingly.

Crank problem

the drive mechanism has failed. try this. ensure it is fully unwound. then open it. then look for some part of the drive gears or belt that has broken or has slipped off. caution, you MUST ensure it is fully unwound prior to opening it.

Dynamo problem

In the original big black Baygen radio there is a blue wire with a solder joint that breaks. This wire shunts part of the load back to the generator and prevents it from running to fast and going over-voltage. I am guessing that a similar problem is affecting your newer smaller radio. On the original radio after you take the two halves of the case apart there is a blue wire that comes from the 3v input jack on the back half of the case and goes to the radio circuit board near the top corner. The solder joint where the wire is soldered breaks easily. With this wire broken the generator will run to fast because there is very little load. The radio will still play if you slow the generator with your hand as it is playing back. If you resolder this wire the radio will work and the generator will run at the proper speed. This takes only a moment or two.

Good luck.

Crank handle broken

MicheleMc, May be too late to help you but maybe someone else is looking for the same information. Finding the manufacturers web site is difficult since their name is Eton. Anyway to get support on these excellent radios go to the Customer Support web page and from the left hand frame and click on the *Warranty Repair* or ?Non-Warranty Repair? link depending on your case. This will generate a web form you fill in and send. From past experience someone contacted me within a day or two and my repaired unit was back in a couple of weeks. The support site also has links to manual downloads, FAQs and a parts (common) listing page. Hope this helps someone and please don?t forget to rate the post.
