After checking your cord for continuity which you probably have already done. I would suspect that that problem is with the transformer, part number 23-81-0545. Of which we have in stock and ready to ship out.
I have heard of these radios being left out in all kinds of weather conditions and still working like a champ. And others, once they get wet nothing works. In the past I have seen others with your same scenario replace the following items. Volume control switch part number, 23-66-0740, or the speaker PCB kit part number,14-46-1546. The switch being the least expensive of the two would be the first to try.
I hope this works,
Have the radio and enjoy it on the job every day. Until the other day it went and just quit. The problem was one of the resistors on the circuit board inside the transformer case. It fried it to the point that there was nothing left of the resistor. The resistor that fried was in the hole (C29). Can you give me the information as to the resistor that goes in that hole. I have been searching your site to try and find the schematics so I can go buy the resistor that I need and fix it. Thanks
My Milwaukee job site radio will not turn on, although the clock still works on the display. I have 120V coming into the transformer but only 2V coming out at the board contacts. I am trying to find any fuses for the radio but I am not seeing them. I would appreciate some assistance. Thanks.
Hi, radio will not turn on but clock still works on display. I have 120vac into xformer but only 2.5vac coming out at the board. Not sure what voltage I'm supposed to have at board. I'm looking for fuses but have not found any. Any assistance would be much appreciated. thanks. greg
dose it work on a battery? transformer should have 12v dc .

My apprentice accidently plugged my 49-24-0200 job site radio into a 220 volt socket for a planer it hummed really loud and then I hurried up and unplugged it and pluged it into a 120 volt socket and it doesnt do anything anymore! What should I do where do I start? the transformer assembly smells fried and i dont have any volts coming out of the transformer to the board.Help! plz
I have owned this radio for about 4 years now, and not one single problem with it, I use it on construstion sites everyday, in the heat, rain, cold, has never failed me, except the ant fell off today :P
I am dissappointed in the overall sound quality of this radio. I am a professional sound technician by trade, so my expectations are probably much higher than most people, but this radio (at least the one I own) is severely lacking in high frequency response. It would also be nice if it could charge batteries, but I understand that Dewalt holds the patent on this design. I just purchased the new Makita Jobsite radio, the white model with the AUX inputs, it is a much nicer sounding unit. I do appreciate the storage unit of this model though.
