    Hello,
    Sorry I am new here and if this needs to go elsewhere please move. I have a small control board for a wine cooler that one 3-pin oscillator is smashed on. I cannot seem to find anywhere to order one that does not require me to order 40 of them and wait for 30-60 days for it to be shipped from China. I only need 1! Lol. Can anyone point me in the right direction to purchase one or two here in the states? The one I have looks just like this: [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Would any of the 3 prongs ones in that list work? I didn't know if it had to be explicitly "z4.00m"

    As long as it is a 4 Mhz ceramic resonator, they are 99.9% of the time drop-in replacements.

    Aside for the lead spacing, the only real difference is the load capacitance. I don't know what that is for the part you posted, but it should be one of the 15pF, 30pF, or 47pF in the list.

    Not crystal. Ceramic resonator. Maybe you were just looking for the wrong thing.

    I really have not been able to find info for that either. But atleast I can order 2 instead of 40 lol!

    Thanks again.

    Possibly, I was looking for it as the exact notation on the unit "z4.00m" and could only find it described on a few chinese wholesale websites as a ceramic crystal oscillator.

    Just FYI: "Ceramic crystal" == ceramic resonator. "Crystal" == quartz crystal.

    Thanks Joey, I've repaired a few things using either junked units or finding goodies at radio shack when they were around. I couldn't find another one marked "z4.00m" in anything I had. I don't know enough about this stuff obviously, but I can de-solder and put it back on to make a working board. Mostly repairing controllers for remote controlled airplanes and boats.

    Thanks again for the help.
