    Hello,

    Attached is an image of a part I could use some help identifying.

    It is out of a generator and was in series with a potentiometer (only 2 of the three terminals, the other was unconnected)

    I guess it is a power resistor but this is a guess.

    I do get 230'ish ohms across the outside most (dirty) terminals and 140'ish ohm between the one other set (from the lead labeled common to the lead still attached.

    Thanks,
    Sparky

    It is not a resistor, that's for sure. What is the left most one?? Is it COM?? Looks like a multimeter pin:D

    That's what it looks like to me 10-20 watt.

    MMH - yes the left most label is "COMMON", middle =
    "110 115 240" and end opposite COMMON is "120"

    Thanks
