Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

Unit will not power up

The power company inadvertently disconnected my neutral at the transformer causing power surges on my house wiring. My Bose Wave Radio/CD has not worked since. When I turn on the power button nothing happens.

The player is 6 years old, how much would it cost to repair? Or should I look at replacing it.

The power company is responsible for the damage. They prefer to repair rather than replace, where can i get this kind of service done. I live in the Houston Texas area.

thank you
Kevin

Where can i obtain a wiring diagram


A one phase 3 wire system has a center tap. Two hots and a neutral. Typical 120/240 volts.
A three phase 4 wire system has Three hots in a Y or Delta. The Y system has three hots and the neutral comes from the center of the Y, this is the neutral and grounded conductor, 120 volts from hot to ground and 208 volts hot to hot. In a 3 phase system the voltage is not doubled hot to hot as in a single phase system because the hots are 120 degrees phased from each other and the square root of 3 is the factor, multiply the 120 volts by 1.73 to get 208 volts hot to hot. Multiply 208 by the reciprocal of 1.73 and get 120 volts. Your exact application is not given so it is not known. A delta system is a triangle and the angle of each triangle is a hot wire, one angle would be grounded or the center tap of one of the sides of the triangle. Y is the configuration of the windings of the alternator or transformer and Delta is the configuration as a triangle of the windings of the alternator or transformer where the power supply is.

With a three phase home service, you can only connect two hots from your single phase generator, and the neutral. One of the house's hot does not get connected and any three phase loads in the house should be switched off and kept from energyzing or a circuit breaker or fuse serving that 3 phase load may trip.
Only one power supply can be connected at a time. The power company power must not be connected at all while using an alternate power supply unless your power supply has means to synchronize the alternating cycle.

It is adviced that the loads be kept within 10% of their rated voltage, especially motors.

MALIBU 200 WATT IRON CORE TRANSFORMER MODEL NO 8100-0200-01 LIGHTS WONT TURN OFF


Plug power pack into cheap wall timer, and that will operate lights until warranty is resolved with Malibu or product-seller.

Simple power outage, or nearby lightning strike, can cause surge that will knock out digital timers. And knock out analog series power packs too.
You probably need receipt for warranty claim.
This timer is not shown on Intermatic site, and not subject to Intermatic 5-year warranty, but certainly Malibu must have a warranty of unknown length, and a corresponding claim procedure.

Double-check your installation, and additional resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html

Whole-house surge protection is hot item among folks these days since so many household items are now electronic, including appliances, washer-dryer, water heaters, timers, etc.
This will protect both 120Volt and 240Volt circuits, although it is unknown if your timer failed because of surge..

Where is the compressor capacitor located in a Carrier Comfort series air conditioner? The compressor is not turning on and I need to troubleshoot the contactr and capacitor.. Thank you.


The controls are in a compartment above where the copper lines attach to the unit. In this top corner you will find your capacitor, which may be a combined fan/compressor cap. Check the T-stat wiring to the unit also, many folks inadvertently cut these wire with a weed eater doing yard work. There is a power cut off at the wall (follow the large covered wiring to the cut off box) and kill the power before you get into your unit, to mess with any controls. Then you can check the compressor by turning the power back on and pressing in on the relay finger pivot. There will be 220vav there so be careful. IF you try this and the compressor and the fan come on you have, bad t-stat wiring, or a bad relay. Most compressor relays are 24Vac and pick up power from the t-stat power transformer mounted inside the evap. unit inside the house. You can use a door bell transformer if you are good with wiring. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Current in Neurtal wire


Some things you can check are,

1. Has someone installed a generator backup
2. Are there any in-ground sprinkler systems installed?
3. Does anybody there use a water well and pump?
4. Do any houses have solar panels installed?
5. Is the copper earth ground wire on your main transformer pole intact, or has it been damaged or cut?
6. Are all of your other power poles properly grounded?
7 Are all the houses properly grounded near the power meter with an earth ground pole?

CARRIER AIR CONDITIONER/HEAT PUMP PROBLEM WOULD NOT RESPOND TO THERMOSTAT. UNIT IS AT LAKE HOUSE WHERE WE DO HAVE BAD STORMS. IN CHECKING, INSIDE PART OF UNIT HAD BURNED UP THE TRANSFORMER BUT NOT...


what I have always been told is if your 24 volt side burns out check the high volt side if the hi volt side burns out check the low volt side.

A quick way if the primary side is burningout due to a problem with the low volt side:
1 MArk all the thermostat wires at the indoor unit
2 Disconnect them at the indoor unit.
3 Check main line voltage before proceeding (A 208 volt is not considered 220V and 240v Is not considered 208V> In these circumstances the voltage may have changed with the power company replacing a transformer and now you need to change the main power input lines at your control transformer for the correct operating voltage). If okj then proceed:

4 If you have an amp meter attach it to one of the lines going to the transformer.
5 Apply main power and listen for hum, note if smell starts again and if so problem has to be in board or main incoming voltage too high or too low. Amp draw should be less than 3 amps.
6 If your to this point and still havent found any trouble in the above as of yet, Connect the wire marked "C" together. Then just touch the thermostat wires one at a time to the places where they go on the indoor unit and watch the amp meter. If you donmt see the meter jump the circut is probably ok but leave them disconnected until you touch all of them to the correct place or wire. Here is a possible problem I ahve seen a thermostat wireing problem if the wires are stripped too far and a "whisker" of the wire sticks out and allowes one of the other wires to cross short out. In this case just cut off the excess wire or bend it over out of the way asnd continue with the test. You can always cut it off later after the tests. If you see the meter jump up and stay up and /or blowes the fuse the wire that you used and it blew is where to consentrate.
7 No wiring problem found means that you could have a relay or contactor not pulling in properly.
and this will cause the amp draw to go way over the transformers power out put or VA rating.
8 Inspect the thermostat wiring for the "whisker" I mentioned above.
9 If you have done this to the end of the thermostat wires and your main incomming voltage is correctly wired in on the transformer andf your relays and contactors are pulling in evenly and not delaying excessively your problem should be fixed.

If this helps you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Think Power surge blew out radio. Can it be fixed?


The fix may be as simple as replacing a fuse. Location varies by model, but each has an internal fuse on one of its circuit boards. SAFETY NOTE: It may seem obvious, but be sure to disconnect power from the set before you open the case.

If the fuse is not the problem, you will need to seek professional repair. Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

Bose SA-3 Amp / Blown Fuse


The problem is not the transformer. You now have shorted output transistors at the very least. By corssing the wires you presented a zero(0) ohm impedence load to the output section. It quickly went into overload. Before the fuses had a chance to open up, the outputs fried. This unit will require new output transistors and perhaps the previous driver circuit will require parts as well. Figure on $20-$50 in parts plus hte local labor rate for the repair.

Power surges


Does it attempt to startup at all? Do you get any lights or any indication that the unit is trying to start? If not, there should be a small transformer inside that is the standby transformer. It generates the 5V standby voltage. I have seen these go open in the primary since there is a fuse built into the transformer. You may need to replace this transformer. You should be able to get to the primary winding. With the unit unplugged, measure across the primary side with an ohmmeter. You should read a low value. If it reads infinity, the primary is open and you need to replace the transformer.

Microwave/small appliances do not turn on when plugged on to the power outlets on one wall.


What does "control panel has all fuses working" mean?

Are you saying you have an old-fashioned fuse panel in your house, instead of a modern circuit breaker panel?

If so, then I would suspect a bad connection in the panel.

If you indeed have breakers, a breaker can snap into the on and positions and still be bad.

Either problem sounds like it should be handled by a qualified electrician.

The power company or your insurance company would likely reimburse you for all or part of the electrician's bill, but you shoudl call first to be sure.

It's possible to have a faulty neutral connection in your wiring. That can lead to damage of several appliances and bulbs, and even pose a real fire or smoke hazard.

Please do not hesitate to get things fixed when you have home electrical problems!
