    Hi there,

    I hope there are some smart fellows out there to help me. I have a small electronic board and need help to identify some parts.....

    1) A zener diode that has "16 4" written on it.It is really small around 3mm long.

    2) A blue ceramic pot that has "3107" written on it and a "M" ( probably companies name at the top.



    Thanks!

    The pot is a 10K pot.

    I am thinking that the diode is not a zener but rather an ordinary diode with the part number 1N914.

    Thanks for the fast reply!

    (which of these diodes is it?)

    Now, why the diode does it not have "1N914" written on it and has "16 4" instead.That was confusing :confused:

    I think you are just reading the number upside down. The 16 is actually 91 and 4 is written on a second line. The 1N is omitted since there is not enough room on the surface of the device.

    It is always a challenge to write the part number on such small components.

    The 3107 likely indicates it was manufactured the 31st week of 2007.
