Re: DIY repair on a vacuum cleaner circuit board

@r23on  It was a few years ago, but yep, 1.5KΩ from memory.  Sorry, but not going to take my mates Shark apart to verify :smile:

 

 We did find some similar circuits (used) on eBay, although some are obviously earlier or later variants.

 

I will say, my mates vacuum cleaner is still going strong 3 years later, so I call that a win.

"We spent some time trying to get a local electrician to do a board level repair."

Ha Ha Ha Ha

One thing needs to be said about resistors, once you put enough power through them to dis-colour the bands (which they normally

have done when repair is necessary), that is what you have.

You need to de-solder them and test them, if they aren't actually screwed.
