SOURCE: Not receiving alerts anymore...
My wr-100 came with a special note inserted with the instructions that the WR-100 was programmed to not give off an audible alert on tests. This is to supposedly protect you from thinking you have a real emergency. Mine is new. Maybe the older ones had an audible test alert. I assume yours gave an alert at one time??

I will be honest with you, I haven't had any problems with this, but I will give you my opinion on what you should do. You can try to call tech support, but I do not think they are going to replace your radio because under their one year warranty, it says that they will repair or replace, at its option without charge, your radio if it fails due to a defect in material or workmanship within One Year following the initial consumer purchase. In other words, they are probably going to feel like this was your fault and your sole responsibility for the radio not working, not the radio itself. I will give you two possible solutions that you can try, but the only solution maybe to just get a new one. My first solution is to actually open the radio by unscrewing the bottom screws (the other two bottom screws are under the black grip-pads), and checking the circuit board and other contractions inside the radio to make sure everything is still intact. I've never tried this with the weather radio, but I did try it with a digital tire gauge I had bought. The tire gauge was not coming on when it was supposed to. I opened it up and played with some of the parts in it. I'm still not finished fixing it, but I did see that it was working better than it was before. Try playing with the parts in the radio and then put the radio back together and turn it on. If this does not work, than it's likely something that cannot be replaced and you will have to get another one. They have them at Wal-Mart for $29.99. I don't know if you are running your radio just on batteries or not, but if you are, maybe you should change the batteries. I hope this works out for you and remember, this is just a suggestion.
