Customer Question
My Bose radio has...

My Bose radio has gotten so hot it melted the right rear rubber foot. Can it be fixed?

Technician's Assistant: What Bose model do you have?

Serial # AWR10AU123387, Model AWR1 - 1W

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your AWR1?

Nothing--Just stopped using it.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

Some years ago, I sent this Bose into their repair shop because sound quality had degraded. When it was returned it was much better, but not as good as new.

How old is the unit?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I don't remember the purchase date. I bought it new approximately 15-20 years ago.
Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

To try and repair it would end up costing more than buying the same unit used online.

You can buy it for around $90 and it would cost around $100-$200 to repair it.
