Bose Wave Radio/CD clock running very slow. Now that I've moved it across the pacific ocean(US to NZ) the clock is suddenly running very slow, losing 10-15 minutes per hour while running on any...

My guess is that the clock in the radio is based off of the AC line frequency (not voltage). In the US the line frequency is 60hz (hertz). I'm guessing that the line frequency in NZ is 50hz, which would seem to explain that extreme amount of time loss. I would check with Bose, but I'm betting they make different 50hz models for export.

WAVE radio transformer bad ???

If you can check ohms,you can also read volts. Open the radio again and look for DC volts on the rectifiers capacitors.They look like :cans", normally the color is blue. Check for positive dc v. against chassis ground. If no + tension,your rectifier or your secondary are open.

Grand kid's spilled pop onunit.bad r222 +c209 mod #awrc-1p bose.

Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. There is, however, a line fuse on a circuit board inside the radio. CAUTION: disconnect the set from its power source before you open it up or start poking around inside it. If you're lucky, all you will need is a simple fuse replacement. The sets are, however, notorious for "blowing" power transformers. If the fuse is not the problem, you will likely need to send the set to Bose for repair. On their web site,, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.
