    My Technos water purifier/ionizer refuses to turn itself off. After
    inspecting I've found a stuck closed voltage regulator. I'm trying to
    locate a compatible regulator. Where can I find a voltage regulator
    replacement for this one?

    Thanks.

    This is not a voltage regulator but a N channel MOSFET. Datasheet at
    http://www.fairchildsemi.com/pf/FQ/FQP50N06.html

    FW0128 is probably some production date code. The 'W' seems to be the
    Motorola logo. So the full part number is FQP50N06.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for searching. And thanks for the correction, Jeroen, which
    allowed me to replace it with a Motorolla N-Channel (MTW 14N50E 01,
    attached to a larger heat-sink) I'd salvaged from a computer monitor. I
    don't believe that salvaging a part from a computer monitor is
    professional but it seems to solve the problem quiet fine.

    You'd be surprised. :)

    but it seems to solve the problem quiet fine.

    Cheers!
