    After a few minutes on, mine too emitted an High Tone. 2nd IF Filter was bad, a small black plastic box with 450F on the top. 455 are more common but has to be 450 and same pin configuration. I found a pair on Ebay from Poland, and (5) from China cheaper.

If you hold the WEATHER/SNOOZE button and the VOLUME UP button, it resets the radio to its deafult factory settings.

    I tried what you said fixya and it still has a high pitched siren and no audio. I have the Midland wr-100. We tried manufacturers reset like the gentlemen above said and that's not working. My radio is about 9 years old and maybe used 4 times, could it be outdated ? Thank you

The high pitch sound is a sign of the autooscillation of the intermediate frequency amplifier from the tuner in your radio - hardware defect. The only way to fix that is to replace the tuner and realign it. This would cost you about $100 for the part and labor.
Since you can buy a brand new unit for less than $40 it's clear what you should do.

SOURCE: need to make sure programmed

Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you're reading this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. The problem is that you are hearing a high pitch tone coming from the speaker. First check to make sure the weather mode is on. To do this, switch the radio to the right side and make sure the Weather Radio On/Off switch is switched to On. You should also check the alarm to make sure it's not on and set. If the alarm is on, turn it off. Your alert type may also be a cause for this. If your alert type is set on TONE, try changing it to DISPLAY or VOICE. Reply back if you still receive problems. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a nice day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this. Hope this helps and remember our site the next time you need troubleshooting assistance.

Hi my 2007 ford ranger 2.5 tdci (duratorq) has recently developed a high pitched squealing noise akin to a slipping drive belt ,which only occurs under load not at idle. no fault codes no excessive smoke...


Your water pump may need a lubricant. Water pump lubricant is added to the radiator.
When the weather is warm enough, and the engine runs hotter, then the thermostat opens more frequently, the lubricant will mix with the radiator fluid and circulate through the sysem lubricating the water pump.
I had squealing problem after changing the serpentine belt.
Tried changing idler sprocket, no difference.
I added the lubricant to the radiator, unfortunately the weather was cold, and the lubricant did not mix well with the radiator fluid, and did not circulate well do to cold weather and short drives.
Once the weather got warmer and the thermostat opened more often the squealing stopped.

We have had severe weather all day and it didn't go off. It had been working perfectly for a year. When I turn on the weather/snooze button I get a constant loud squeal on every channel. any ideas??


Check this website's FAQs page- http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq. Your answer may be in FAQ #10. It may be also that your local NWS transmitter may not have been receiving a good transmission because of the type of severe weather that you had. Maybe you should call your local NWS office and plea your case. I don't know if this will help, but this is my suggestion.
