    Resistor Color Code Guide

    I soaked the resister in a combination of CLR / Bleach / Hydrogen Peroxide for a few hours to see if it would clean up enough to see any portion of the inside bands.Well, per the "four" bands on the resistor what I could identify was: #1-Red, #2-Red, #3, (maybe Blue or Black), #4-Gold Based on the item, a shaver, 115V coming in, going through one diode, and the voltage held at 35V (based on the patent specs), what is your best guess now as to the rating of that resistor?Thanks!Walter

    Yes, (correction) it is a Model 9700 as shown in the cast molding of the shaver. It is a very old model and that was why WAHL had no specs on it (that model went back to the 60's) It came in a kit that was noted as kit # 9743 On the inside of the back casing it had a US Patent Pending # 2795967 & 2789347 & 2876538 which on a search of the USPTO did not show the motor. Did come across this one filed by WAHL in 1970 that sowed the motor: http://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=03805136&IDKey=691FCFEB98B2%0D%0A&HomeUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetacgi%2Fnph-Parser%3FSect1%3DPTO2%2526Sect2%3DHITOFF%2526u%3D%25252Fnetahtml%25252FPTO%25252Fsearch-adv.htm%2526r%3D226%2526f%3DG%2526l%3D50%2526d%3DPALL%2526s1%3D%252522WAHL%252Bclipper%252522.ASNM.%2526p%3D5%252...see more »Yes, (correction) it is a Model 9700 as shown in the cast molding of the shaver.

It did note the Diode kept the voltage to 30V I took a close-up picture of the Resistor and it is attached
