I just came to ask if anyone else has experienced the same problem here - I have been using this phone since around February and every weekday since then my scheduled alarms have gone off (I have 4 in the mornings set to weekdays).
This morning none of my alarms went off and I was late for work. I can't see anything wrong with my phone and even tested some alarms at work and they worked fine.
I'm using the Wireless Stand Charger if that makes any difference - but I've been using that for months too.
Edit: Not sure if this changes anything - I soft reset my phone and it prompted me for a firmware update which I have just installed. From what I understand I thought I had updated to 1314 but it actually updated to 1308, and I was supposed to check for another update (2 updates pushed out the same morning, god knows why)

I've been having this same problem with my HTC 8x intermittently. I have not been able to notice any pattern, the alarm just fails to go off some mornings. Sometimes it will fail two nights in a row, then it won't have another issue for a couple of weeks. It's made me late to work numerous times...I'm thinking I'm going to need to pull out the old alarm clock at this point. Funny that someone mentioned the Blackberry, that was my previous phone as well and I was always amazed at how the alarm always went off without fail. The battery on the phone would be dead, yet it would still turn on for an alarm to go off.

I had this issue once, and I have solved it pretty much bizaarly. I have put a live tile on my HS. The tile has to be medium sized. Then in the bottom left corner u see when the alarm is set to go off. If it says just alarms, I click on the Tile, then turn the alarm off then on again, and no problem. I have established this as a evening ritual, together with the charging of my device.ex iPhone3G and iPhone4 user

I have the same problem with the default Alarm app on my Lumia 525.
I set up the alarm to ring weekdays at 7:20 in the morning.
But some days in the evening the live tile of the alarm does not show the time at which it will ring, just says 'Alarms'.
So i have to go into the app(the alarm is turn on) and turn off and back on the alarm. Than it shows '7:20' on the live tile instead of 'Alarms'.
And it rings in the morning.
I do not know what causes the alarm to disable itself.
Did anyone figure this out?

I think I found the problem and can reproduce it.
The default alarm app does not disable itself, it just does not update itself after it had rung one time.
Here are the steps to reproduce the bug:
1.Open default Alarm app.
2. Create new alarm or use one already created.
3. Set the time depending on the current time, if now is 12:00h, set it to 10:15h.
Just keep in mind difference between now and when the alarm should ring on the next day should be less than 2 hours.
4. Set it to ring only once.
5. Save the alarm.
After that if you pinned the app with medium size tile on the start screen you should see that the alarm is not activated.
On the tile in the left bottom corner says 'Alarms', but not the time that you set up.
This is ok.
The alarm should be activated after the difference between current time and that on the alarm is more than 2 hours.
If it is more than 2 hours, the live tile should change and display(in the bottom left corner) the time at which it will ring on the next day.
But the live tile does not update(by some reason), so the alarm wont ring on the next day.
I think I should escalate this as a bug to Microsoft.
Could someone try the steps above and confirm the bug?
