I wanted to know how to proceed with what I believe is a wire wound resistor. I think it is supposed to be 500,000 ohms.
It tests at .554 megs when measured from the blue arrows but only .4 ohms when measured from the yellow arrows. I removed the brown paper that is at both ends to test it. I then unsoldered one end, tested again and got .4 ohms.
Is this a wire wound resistor and if so, how do you properly test them and if a replacement is need, what is it replaced with as far as wattage etc.
I am not certain why no-body picked-up on this one or has not responded to your dilema. This is not a wire wound resistor. It is a piece of shielded cable to the volume control or tone control. As it is just a piece of shielded cable you need only to be certain that it is not OPEN (broken). One example of a wire wound resistor would be the long red resistor with the green end. But there are othern types.
