    I am looking for what looks like a ceramic, wirewound resistor that
    came off the controller board in my threadmill. The item measures
    1.375" x .375" x .375" with 2 blade type connectors on the bottom. It
    has a symbol which looks like a diamond inside a square followed by
    the #s 7W 2K7J. I'm assuming it is a 7watt, 2K ohm. Where can I get
    such a part?
    Is this part supposed to run too hot to touch? The QC sticker attached
    to it turnrd brown from the heat.
  2. Hi Falcon,

    Sounds more like 2,7k 7W.
    Try local electronic shops.

    I've been looking everywhere online and local Rat Shack. Can you
    suggest any sources? Thanks again.
    BTW, I put the multimeter on the resistor and it shows no reading.
  4. Hi Falcon,

    Well, I don't know where you live....try RS Components / Farnell,
    maybe the "famous" Radio Shack etc.

  5. Also, you should try a higher power dissipation if the one you have
    failed due to overheating. Say, ten watts, maybe.

    Assuming it is a 2.7K 7 watt resistor, you can get
    it from Mouser Electronics.

    Order part number 280-CR10-2.7K
    That's 10 watts, 2.7K. It'll cost you more for the shipping
    than the part. If you have the space, a better approach
    is to order two resistors, and put them in series:
    280-CR10-1.2K and 280-CR10-1.5K - that'll give you 20
