Some wide-tolerance resistors only had 2 color bands. The body is the 3rd color. It could also be an inductor or capacitor. It really depends on its place and function in the circuit.

Electronics over-ride?

I don't think you can as to the fact that it has electronic parts the operate the main components unless you have a generator to power it up thats just my opinion actuallly I'm pretty sure you can't.

Shuts off after slowe burning ,8888 flashes, and all burner lights fash. Monitor 441 oil heater.

There is specific instruction on web site for 8888 code flashing, as bbtoast has instructed.

From a distance we are unable to do the test procedure, you will need to do it, follow the instructions given on THIS PAGE. you also will need a multimeter to test for the 2.4volts and also a 10K ohm resistor to test.

Without testing as instructed here are your options

Sorry no magic wand available, you will need to get your hands dirty, part identifiers and circuit diagrams are also on given site

I think you will find that Brian has already indicated this much and there is not anything more anybody could tell you.

I wanted to clean inside the heater and I happened to disconnect two wires and now that I connected them back to where I thought they belong it makes a short is there a way to see a diagram of the wiring...

I am not sure but if the wires comes from the resistors try to see how they were banded before. You cannot make a short. you will see exactly what you did when you'll power it up.

My heater keeps shutting off regardless of hte setting I hae it on, after one minute

This is most commonly a failure of the electronics rather than a sensor. The capacitors on these heaters overheat and swell up and throw the machine into protection mode. The way around this is to unplug the machine for a few hours, then pull the cover off, check that all the air filters are clean and the machine can get fresh air. Then check that none of the electronical components are soldered in securely and no loose wires. Check for any burn marks on the main circuit board which would indicate a bad electronical component such as a faulty capacitor.

Looking for the resistor R15 data or part number to a DESA heater ignitor PC board 113471-01. Only indicator is DALE/R1F. I want to repair the pc board but cannot find the specfic part number to purcahse...

I also need this resistor! ignitor element shorted and took this resistor with it. If i cant find the size i will start with a high watt, high resistance resistor and work my way down until it lights i suppose. It appears that DALE R1F is a resistor series but the actual wattage and resistance are not given

I'm installing a Honeywell Thermostat RTH2410. In Step 1 you need to identify the system type. I have a Carrier Heat Pump model FA4BNF030. Is this a heat pump with or without auxiliary/backup heat?

Auxiliary heat is electric heat that is put into the air handler on the inside of the house. Its used when your heat pump doesn't provide enough heat, but heat strips are not always used. To see if you have auxiliary heat, look inside and see if you have breakers on the front panel of the air handler or anywhere close. No breakers, no electric heat. Hope this helps!

If you go to your local home depot, and get a new thermostat, it will come with different diagrams for wiring in the instructions that are pretty easy to understand. I hope this helps.

Hi I have a Coleman furnace that has the electronic ignition model # G9to601oupb13c that will come on for about 3 seconds then shuts down if i turn off the power and restart it willl come back on and then...

If you mean hot surface ignition and not spark then look in front of the far burner from the glow plug and clean the rod in front of the burner with a piece of steel wool, the rod is probably dirty and can not sense the flame, so the gas shuts off.
