Sounds like you've blown a capacitor in the power supply section. 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.

What caps might need replacement when a Bose AWRCC2 has ac hum?


It's not always, as everyone believes, that all capacitors are bad. In your particular case, the capacitors that would cause this, are the 2 large(in physical size and capacitance) directly off the bridge rectifier in the power supply.

I have a bose wave radio fo many years, when turn it on there is a constant buzz as the radio plays. the buzz varies if i move or position the radio differently. sounds antenna related but there is no...


The antenna is built in. The buzz you're hearing is a 60cycle hum (electricity from a nearby appliance) Try this, put an extension cord on it and walk it around your listening room for best reception. You can also find the culprit appliance by turning items off 1 by 1 until buzz subsides.

Bose Wave Radio, Model AWR1-1W When turned on radio emits a loud buzz and no other sound. Pushing tuning, volume, and aux buttons has no effect. Is this fixable? If so, how?


Loud buzz is usually caused by static and radio interference in radios. If none of this is affecting you unit presently there there is a probability that some cables which aid the fm antenna in receiving stations this could act as static which brings about the buzz on the unit. Either way it is caused by interference on the fm receiver end and all you have to do is get that serviced and the problem is solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have a BOSE, model # AWR1-1W that has a loud hum that almost drowns out the music. What do I need to look at to cure this problem?


Need to know is ti a first generation of the bose wave radio or second, could you tell what battery it has? Also does it have an external AM antenna? With old radio, first generation, you will need to replaced all capacitors, And I mean ALL. Radio will be good as new. Unless radio suffered a some kind of liquid damage and then it could be anything. Good place to repair Bose wave radio in Chicago, Electronic Engineers. 773-202-0909

Have a Bose wave Music Sys model AWRCC2 with stuck


Yes I think you can, get out your tools and take apart the unit, what do you have to loose you can always take it to a pro if you can't get it out. Be careful to unplug the unit. Don't force anything when you take it apart, be careful not to break any parts, put all pieces back together as you took them apart. Should be very straight forward if you are careful at what you do, get a bowl to put small parts in. Good Luck.....

When the XMP3 is connected to my home audio system just loud hum


I am having the same problem. I tried to isolate it - unplugged the charger and the buzz got much better. So I'm thinking mine must have something to do with the transformer causing interference. But I haven't solved it yet.

Cd "not playable" on Bose Wave AWrcc2


Sounds like a weak or bad optical pick-up. You could try gently cleaning it, but you'll probably have to send to Bose for repair.
