How much can you sell 2 of the following?
I need to replace 2-100 ohm 2 watts resistors in my Kustom Profile_one unit. You recommended replacing with 2-130 ohm 2 watt metal oxide resistors. Currently one...
It sounds awfully like the resistors are close to breakdown voltage, I would Suggest that you do replace them with the resistors specified, because using anything else in a high voltage product is a fire risk, now who was it that suggested replacing them with higher ohm resistors? was it a service tech or was that right out of a manual or was if from the manufacturer themselves?
Anything to do with resistor replacement, as yo sound like you know, should be taken very carefully, because if you use the wrong resistors, you risk losing the components after the resister due to a higher voltage or sometimes even causing them to stop working due to a lack of current...
Be very careful and please go back to the manufacturer to get the exact resistors quoted from them and make sure you have it in writing from them so that if something fails you have at least done what you could.
Hope this helps, need any more advice, just ask!
