Yes There is a pigtail fuse in unit. It solders to main board. In order to replace you have to pull main p.c.b to get access to bottom of board.

Can i use my Bose for playing iheart radio or pandora or is it not capable of adaptation or blue tooth

Bose wave is not BlueTooth unless you buy the optional adapter, but you can connect other device via the auxillary input. You should get Heart Radio on FM.

Why does my bose wave radio turns itself off every twenty minutes?

I am not sure how to fix your radio; but my wave radio wasn't working and I took it into a Bose store and got an excellent trade in for a new one. I traded a wave radio without a CD player for a new Wave radio with a CD player. I would take your radio into the nearest Bose store.

I have a Bose Wave Radio/CD player and the transformer inside does not work. Where can I get this spare part for it please/

First of all make sure that the thermal fuse is intact or is blown , if so you can short connect and use if it works.
If not the transformer must be sourced from Bose unless you can get this rewound at a rewinding center.

Bose radio will not turn on. I have a Bose Wave radio, model AWR1-1W, D.O.M. 980305, that will not turn on. I've verified that there is power to the radio (checked outlet plug of cord). I've looked...

I have the same issue with the same model. I found an open primary winding in the large transformer inside the unit. Now the problem is finding somewhere to buy the transformer...

I have a bose awrc1p radio display light changes

This could be the battery causing the display to act strangely. If the radio still works audio-wise, the following should fix the display: The older model wave radios have either a 9v or 3 AA batteries (accessible from the bottom). Remove any battery, and reset the system by unplugging the power cord for about 40 seconds. Plug it back in without the battery attached. If the problem goes away- replace the battery or batteries. (which is only there to hold the clock time, presets etc when not plugged in) BTW- you'll have to set the clock, alarm, presets etc after this procedure. If the problem doesn't go away, call Bose. I think they can repair this for $99 and/or offer a new one as a trade-in discounted.

Loud popping and static-vol ctrl has no effect on noise

Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of their units. If you check their web site,, you'll find that they will repair your unit for $100 or possibly give you $200 credit towards a new model. Before you take them up on either offer, you might want to check out the new lines of HD radios. Better souind quality, MUCH lower prices than a Bose.

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.
