    I am trying to repair my Pool Clorinator power supply that self destructed after a colony of ants moved in.

    I have replaced a blown FET and the only other component that looks off is this resistor that is measuring almost a dead short. I do expect it to be a low value, but I think it seems to be too low.

    What us the value of a Brown Grey Silver Gold Black (or V.V.) resistor?

    None of the 5 band online calculators that I have tried accept this value as the last band should not be either brown or black?

    I don't have a schematic and the service manual only suggests replacement of the power supply if faulty, so no help for repairs.

    Thanks in Advance

    Peter.

    My guess is that it's 0.18 ohms 5%, so yeah, it will appear almost like a dead short

    Bugger, guess I'll have to keep searching for something else.

    Thanks.

    It is probably used for current sensing, such as for shutdown with shorts.
