Product no. 8: Alarm clock
Product purchased: October 2003
Product seller: Ikea, Espoo
Product price: Approx. 10 Euro
|It is hard to find any mechanical alarm clocks these days. We found this one in an Ikea shop. It is supposed to make a loud noise compared to today's electronic beepers, so we thought this should be the solution to our children always sleeping too late in the morning.
|Yes, after trying it the noise was enough. But after a while I tried it myself, winding the alarm time to the current time. No alarm sound! The clock didn't function any more.
|The bell mechanism arm is stuck, it cannot be moved. The clock is not repairable by user; the cover cannot be opened. No way. Too big of an effort to go back to Ikea and get a new one.
