4.4 might be it lol. Sorry I'm terrible at reading resistors. Gold gold black red I think is the combo. Actually final color might be brown.

Hi,
red = 2 or brown = 1
black = 0
gold = divide by 10
gold = 5%
red black gold gold = 2r0 +-5% non standard value from e24 range
brn blk g g = 1r0 +-5%, more likely since this is an e6 and e12 value.

This may be a silly question but is there a bridge rectifier that I may be able to find locally at say radio shack or something?

And yes I read backwards so 2ohms....

I'm gonna run over to my wifes grandmothers and grab my DMM. I'll try testing between those points.

Ok, checked with a DMM between the +/- to the ground and they do in fact fill. I held it there until about 10k ohms. So that looks ok. Would be nice if I could find some rectifiers locally though. Guessing rat shack doesn't really have anything though.

Not the best for the bucks but a local source.
As others pointed out> ditch the connectors and solder both bridge rectifiers!

Ok thanks! I'll try and grab some tomorrow. I'll definitely solder them. Would it be a bad idea if I just replace the one with that style? Or should I do them both?

I would do them one at a time and test between mods. Screw them down no more glue of course.

just disconnect the rectifier and test it. It's just 4 diodes. check wikipedia if you need to know which way they go.

Test with your meter set to the diode check, and see what the voltage is across each diode. if they read 0 or you get no reading, then it's fried. If you get a reasonable drop for all 4 diodes, you probably need to look elsewhere.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a bad connection. Usually things like that are soldered, and there could easily be enough current to cook the contacts on those connectors.

I don't doubt there could have been a bad connection, but I don't see how it would make it heat up hot enough to spread the high temp hot glue all over the place. I'll check it out in a bit when I get back from taking the wife to work.
