Introduction: Circuit Symbols

Picture of Circuit Symbols

Here are some links/photos of most basic schematic symbols.
Useful if you are ever trying to understand someone else's circuit and don't recognize some of the parts.

Electronic-Symbols.com can be very useful.  Has a great database of every variation of each symbol.  Easy to look up some odd symbols you may come across

I just wanted to pass along a big THANK YOU to you for your "instructable" on fixing a Bosch dishwasher !! I own a very similar model (it is just a little older than yours) and as it turned out, my heater relay on the control panel had a cracked solder joint. I didn't have another relay of the same type, however I figured for the cost of a little of my time and solder, I could save over $140 bucks (the cheapest price I could find for a new board online). Again, Thank you for your time and effort in making that "instructable" - Glenn Howarth, Westbrook, Maine, USA

I go to school at Cleveland Institute of Electronics and they just published a 21 page Electronics Symbols Handbook on their web site:
