I have a 7 yr. old Bose clock radio w single cd player. One morning it woke me to a sound I can only describe as loud grinding loudness on top of static sounding loudness.
The clock works but any attempt to turn any part of the radio, cd or alarm on, results in the horrific sound.
Bose said they'd take $125 to send it in for repair. I'd rather buy the Kmart special for 20 bucks than invest MORE money into this product.
Have you ever heard of this problem?

Re: Horrific bone crunching sound from clock radio
Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. Before you spend
the big bucks on repair or a Bose "upgrade", you might want to check out the new HD radios.
Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.
My radio stopped working. I was able to take it into a Bose store and trade it in on a new radio. My old one was about ten years old and it did not have a CD player. I was able to trade it in on a new one with a CD player.
If you can check ohms,you can also read volts. Open the radio again and look for DC volts on the rectifiers capacitors.They look like :cans", normally the color is blue. Check for positive dc v. against chassis ground. If no + tension,your rectifier or your secondary are open.
please my name is dele i have this BOSE radio/cd system model number is AWRC2G which transformer burnt out rightly, that the input is 240volts which output is the problem and in nigria. please i just want to know the output on each coloured wire of the secondary that has 8 wires output from the secondary (2 purple - brn = volt, 2 blue = volts, and 2 black - gray = volts. so that similar that i can use to work it. thank you
