Resistors in Nutrimill

I have a used Nutrimill that stopped working.  A friend is repairing it for me and the problem seems to be a cheap resistor on the circuit board that controls the motor speed.  Problem is, the resistor blew and the color is unrecognizeable :(  Is anyone handy enough to open theirs up (obviously not if it will void your warranty) and tell me what color the resistors are?  Or is there another way to find out this information?  I hate to buy another mill just because a $.75 resistor blew!

Thanks!

If I had one I would open it for you. I would suggest when replacing the resistor go up on the wattage rating of the new one. If its a 1-watt put in a 2-watt if space permits.

Wouldn't this have been covered under the warranty?  Call their repair number and see if they can tell you.

It's the last line I'm not sure about.  It should be either gold, silver or nothing.  I'm sure it was covered in the warranty, but that only extends to the original owner.  Good idea though, maybe I'll call the service center on Monday and see if they can tell me.

If its the last line then its not to big of a deal.The last line is only the tolerance. Meaning how close to the stated spec the resistor should read. Get a gold one and you'll be fine, thats a 5% tolerance from the indicated value. Most electronics are 5% rated.
