So they've blown out a few times, and I always do the "right thing" by replacing them with the exact same type. I know its possible to go up to like, what, a 10k, and maybe it wont happen as often?
This happened again a few weeks back and I (in a bad mood), just soldered a wire bridging the gap for both of the resistors on the controller board of my system.
I read that the resistors were there to make sure that there was no fire hazard. But after a few weeks, and no noticeable smoke / heat... Is it safe to keep it like this, or am I damaging my system more than I know?
