Wire Resistors issue?
« on: November 03, 2021, 05:26:26 AM »
Hello, I'm wondering if I ruined a resistor I installed. It may have gotten a bit too hot and it started sweating a yellow color. I'm hoping it isn't a problem because I kept working and have forgotten which resistor it is. Should it be OK? Thanks to any responses.

What you likely saw was flux from your solder.

Thank you Paul. I was thrown off as the solder Flux was coming out of the top of the resistor.
