Question about Bose Wave Radio
WHERE IS THE FUSE ON THE BOSE RADIO?
The line fuse for these sets is inside the radio on a printed circuit
board. NOTE: for your safety, disconnect the radio from its power
source before you open the case and poke around inside. The best way
to check the fuse is with an ohm meter, but you can probably check it
visually using a strong flashlight. There should be a wire filament
running the length of the fuse. If it's intact, so is the fuse. If
it's broken or not visible at all, the fuse is "blown" and needs to be
replaced. If the fuse checks out ok, the power transformert is likely
bad -- a problem that these sets are notorious for. Bose will charge
you $100 for the transformer repair (unless the set is still under
warranty), and having it done is strictly a matter of personal choice.
My choice would be to sell the Bose on eBay as a "tech special" and
pick up one of the newer HD radios. They offer much better sound at a
much lower price.

Upon opening the Bose Wave radio.. 4 screws only from the bottom. The fuse is located at the top side of the PCB. It is a small fuse. Kindly inform me if you need a picture. I am repairing one now
