    Sorry, I know next to nothing about boards and components. I was wondering if someone would be able to identify what component is highlighted in the picture. Thanks![​IMG]

    The silk screen shows it as R32 which indicates a resistor, obviously a cooked one so very difficult to ID the value.

    See if anything is written on the epoxy part remaining and look for the other half rattling around in the case.

    Need brand and model and type of equipment.
    CERTAINLY looks to be the source / emittter resistor of Q2, since you also see a fine current sensing trace running off from that pad..
    Since its already open cased, if the nichrome wire burnup is off center, you could measure from one intact end to the mechanical center of the winding and double its value.
    Also give us the alpha + numbering from Q2 and Q? right beside it.
