    What is the value of this resistor ?

    Looks like 1900 ohms, 5% but...burning a resistor makes it look like something it isn't.

    I am measuring 300Ω :eek:...

    So what gives ?

    1.8KΩ 5% tolerance would be my guess.
    Edit: ...but if was burnt, all bets are off - possibly accounting for the measured discrepancy.

    What gives? I think it's been overheated.
    I also think djsfantasi is right. Try 1800 ohms, 2W, 5%

    The first band seams to be white and that is 9. But on a badly burned resistor. The colors may change.

    That looks to be brown, white, orange, gold. Which should be 19K ohms 5% tolerance. Though I can't really see for certain what the colors are. The orange could be faded red I guess.

    What kinda resistor would measure the value lower than the code ?

    A burnt resistor.

    After the magic smoke gets out, all guarantees are off.

    I agree with that, unless that's an inductor. Sometimes inductors come in that package, with a green or gray color. That could explain the low resistance. It could be a 2H inductor.

    My meter shows 86Ω. Thought meter battery went down, so checked with Milli-ohmter and it too gave me 86Ω.

    Coding says 100Ω. Go figure! :confused:

    By the way , It came from the STK One not from the panel ....and it is .in some over there thread. :cool:

    this is not from the panel....I personally replaced this resistor before and now again I am doing that.

    Hello,

    As it does not have a color coding for the tollerance, it could be even a 20% resistor.
    That may measure between 80 and 120 Ohms for a 100 Ohms one.

    20% is freak-in Ridiculous

    So wait, which component is the one in question? The one shown in post #1 or post #14?

    14 ....

    It was 100 Ω when I replaced in the first place. I did measure it.
    But today I am getting 86Ω.
