This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Windermere (Cumbria, England) transmitter.

UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

J.R.Richardson:

Was/is your HiFi tuner connected to an external aerial?
If so, check the connections to your tuner. If it's coax to an external aerial then check the state of the coax.
Has the aerial moved at at all? Is it still where it should be and pointing correctly? If it's external and 23 years old, it's quite possible the connector on the aerial has deteriorated and water has entered and corroded the connections and entered the coax. If so you'll need a new aerial and coax.

If the tuner is connected to a simple indoor aerial and nothing has changed to interfere with its reception then maybe the tuner has deteriorated, electronic components can fail with time. You would need a really good electronics/radio engineer to look at it to see if it's ok/repairable, but it may not be worth spending money on. If so, consider a replacement tuner possibly one with DAB+ reception ability. Whilst you may not be able to receive any DAB+ transmissions at present, just ordinary DAB, it would be more future-proof as stations will eventually move to that mode of transmission.

Go to https://www.radioandtvhelp.co.uk and select Transmitter checker. Then select DAB Radio, enter your postcode etc details and check you can at least receive the main BBC multiplex.
If you can receive the Morecambe Bay transmitter, you may well get some commercial stations as well.

To add to the above, a lot of the commercial stations that are on the D1 multiplex transmitted from Morecambe Bay now use DAB+.
