Two brand new MELF resistors suitable for repairing GHD 4.2B, 4.2P or GHD Mk5 Gold where either R8 or R11 has gone high in value or open circuit.
Please change both resistors together.
A single pack contains 2 resistors.
See the R8 Resistor page for more details.
The resistors we sell are 51 ohms, just like the originals but are much higher rated at 1 watt and 350 volts and are high quality metal film types.
To our knowledge no other company sells the correct value of resistor, they all sell 47 ohm resistors and often call them 50ohms.
Note that these resistors often fail due to an faulty type 2 cable and socket connection. This is normally caused by a faulty cable socket and we would recommend inspecting the cable socket if you are replacing the resistors. Any sparking can cause either of these resistors to fail, loose mains adapter, dodgy extension lead, dirty mains switch contacts etc.
Type 2 cables and sockets must be replaced with the newer more reliable type 3 cable and socket.
You should check and clean the mains switch contacts.
The colours of the resistors and the coloured bands on the resistors supplied may vary from the image shown depending on our supplier's stocks.
They will also not match the original resistors markings. This is of no importance.
Image is for guidance only. Look for the markings R8 and R11 on the PCB for location identification.
