    \$\begingroup\$ @TomCarpenter Maybe just punishment for it killing the resistor. \$\endgroup\$ Jan 2, 2018 at 19:40

    \$\begingroup\$ They really crowded that resistor though. I doubt it will actually take 3W in that spot. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Trevor is saying that resistor is packed in so tight to the components next to it that there's not going to be much air circulation to help cool the resistor. It might not be able to dissipate 3W of heat when one side of it is basically covered up. \$\endgroup\$

It is an "axial-lead cement wirewound resistor" rated at 3W. Resistance is 0.22\$\Omega\$ +/-5%. Here is a datasheet.

I've been in their factory. ;-)

    \$\begingroup\$ Well, Spehro, watching them being made is passive. Why, I've blown up a few, and replaced others in a repair;-) \$\endgroup\$

No its not it's a 3W 0.22 Ohm power resistor.

    \$\begingroup\$ What is the "No its not" referring to? Everyone seems to agree it's a 220 mOhm 3 W power resistor. \$\endgroup\$ Jan 2, 2018 at 20:41
