Replace fuse Bose Wave Radio

I need to replace the fuse in my Bose Wave Radio. In order to do this, I must remove the PC board so that I can solder in a new fuse. Does anyone know how I disassemble the radio to get to the PC board? I can remove the top cover, but I cant see how to expose the PC board.

    I have an Bose Wave radio, AWR1-1W that won't power up, makes a loud pop when unplugged.
    I know the fix for the newer version of this radio is the 5vdc power supply transistor.
    Do you have any suggestions. If you can offer some info I'd appreciate it. Thanks

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 same problem. I don't know the fix but I certainly would not take Bose service tech at his word. Bose simply has goal to sell new units.

Water spilt into top of wave radio cd system and it is dead


Bose radios do not have an integrated fuse link. the water has shorted the main board. the best action here is to, replace the entire unit. this can only be done by sending it in to bose. i understand that this is not the option you wanted but, all replacement boards and internal components are not available for consumer purchase.

This repair or, exchange can only be initiated and completed by the manufacture(bose).

Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. There is, however, a line fuse on a circuit board inside the radio. CAUTION: disconnect the set from its power source before you open it up or start poking around inside it. If you're lucky, all you will need is a simple fuse replacement. The sets are, however, notorious for "blowing" power transformers. If the fuse is not the problem, you will likely need to send the set to Bose for repair. On their web site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

My 10 year old Bose wave radio quit working.


There's a line fuse inside the radio, mounted on a PC board. CAUTION: disconnect the set from power before opening the case or poking around inside. The fuse could be bad, but these sets are notorious for losing the power transformer. If the fuse is ok then you are looking at a $100 repair fee from Bose. You might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound, MUCH lower price.

In line fuse


I suspect that the fuse is 0.75 A, and I believe that it is soldered in place. Can you see that it is blown?

Boes wave radio


All Wave Radios have a Pigtail fuse on main board. May just be Fuse. I have seen alot of them that when dead have water damage as root cause. These radios are very reliable and water damage failure seems to be the most common. Bose has a flat rate repair service on these radios http://www.bose.com/controller?event=VIEW_STATIC_PAGE_EVENT&url=/contact/index.jsp&ck=0
