Can I replace the 1N5395 diode in this diagram with a FR157 diode? Basically I need to lower the heat of my hair dryer and I think the 1N5395 diode in this diagram does exactly this but I have only a FR157 and also I read it's better to use 4 amps or even 6 amps diode like the BY500-400! Care to elaborate? Thanks!
Wouldn't a FR157 or a RL205 work to cut the power in half thus reducing the temps?
