    Hi Friends,

    I'm trying to help Andreas by repairing his AM temp Controller, but what I need is for someone just open thier unit to just give me the value of 2 resisters. It only mean opening 4 little screw, nothing seroius! The unit is a AM, but it has SAGA boards inside, seems AM just remarked the SAGA unit? So both should be the same.

    Thanks

    Lighty

    Thanks Gaz, done a basic scetch of what the board looks like, the resisters sit in the pic that are circled, if i remember correctly, if you maybe just draw a scetch and right down the colour codes. thx

    Thanks Gaz,

    Any chance you could confirm the colours of the 2 resisters

    1 = yellow - violet - brown - gold ?
    2 = violet - black - violet - gold?
