SOURCE: replace fuse Bose Wave Radio
For the AWR1-1W turn it over and there are 4 screws that you must remove. When your looking at the circuit board the fuse is just below the power supply and back of radio. If the radio makes a ‘POP’ sound when you unplug it may not be the fuse as power is getting past the fuse. I have the same trouble with mine. I called BOSE Tech and he said if it makes that ‘POP’ sound after unplugging it is not fuse or power supply. They will not even allow me to send it in for repairs as the radio is over 15 years old and considered unserviceable.
Maybe someone else can give us a quick fix.

I have the exact same AWR1-1W model for repair last week. I am assuming you have a meter and you also have soldering skills here.
You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide pins. With the power disconnected, measure with a multimeter the resistance between the two outside pins of the Q4 transistor. If you measure anything between 0-3 ohms it is shorted. Replace this part with a similar part or you could replace it with the new Bose recommended part - 2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used an 2SC2655 instead and had no problems so far with the radio. This radio also came in totally dead with no display nor the radio working.

Mine did the same thing. I took the cover off and took the radio apart. I discovered the FM/AM tuning crystal was separated from the mother board (soldering failed). Anyway, when figured out where the crystal went I reinserted it and it worked great. I considered gluing it back in but opted to test my soldering skills and it worked out just fine. The crystal is a small silver electrical component with 2 prongs that plug into the motherboard.
