Re: UNKNOWN VALUE OF VOLTAGE ZENER DIODES
I was not able to find any service or schematic for this model. The colors means that the value is 22.6 volts zener diode with the other blue band indicating where the cathode is.
Could you tell me where or what other components this zener diode is connected to?

Zener diodes are invariably used as low power voltage regulators or as a voltage reference for voltage regulating circuitry.
Zener diodes are sold by wattage and reference voltage by numerous component suppliers and constructor stores and in theory the voltage is marked on them, though difficult to see and easily defaced.
Finding an equivalent for what appears to be a manufacturer's part number presents a rather difficult challenge. The official service sheet will probably provide the required voltage. Without that information you will either have to purchase the component from the manufacturer under the part number or experiment until the required value is discovered.
just read the model and then google it, beside, if you short them, you need to replace them with same value, and this will be determined by the circuit, if you did not change the circuit - just buy two new diodes and install them, do not bother with voltages as they have some tolerance and type will determine it.
