Customer reply replied 8 months ago
it is "humming" along, but not in a good way!
Electronics Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 8 months ago

Humming is usually an interference noise.

Try moving the unit to another room or location and see if it continues there

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Unfortunately, I played the radio in every room in my house and the hum remained, so interference is NOT the explanation. What's next?
Electronics Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 8 months ago

Sorry for the long wait -- Unfortunately, you opted me out of the question 5 days ago so I couldn't reply back.

Do you have the hum on every station?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the radio hums independently of tuning.
Electronics Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 8 months ago

Unfortunately, it will need to be looked at locally to see what the issue is.
