I have an old ELU 860 machine. It has been working well, but went 'pop' a couple of days ago.
I have looked inside the right hand side panel, and can see that a small electronic component has blown. Unfortunately, it has blown out the front face of the component, which results in not being able to read the component part number now.
Can anyone open their machine and take a good quality photo of the small circuit board that is located bottom right of the circuitry please?
The board is labelled B&D REG45V.
The component I'm after is the 3 pin black item.
This is very urgent as I prepare for Christmas gifts.
Might help if you posted a picture yourself to help others identify the part you are looking for. Have you checked for any other damage ? there is a good chance that something else caused this component to blow so simply replacing it may only result in exactly the same thing happening again
Yes the component might fail again. But it might just be a single component failure.
Unfortunately, the photo is too big a file size to upload.
If someone has an ELU 860 cnc machining centre, then simply remove the right hand board cover, and the small board is attached to a 2.5" x 2.5" aluminium plate which in turn is screwed to the lower face immediately at the front side of the machine.
I'm just looking to get the component part number details of the small black component (with 3 soldered connections).
I'm assuming it is a Voltage Regulator but may also be a Transistor, as they look the same as a component. The only way to tell is to have the part/type number. The component does not need to be removed to get these details.
Hi Alan, unfortunately the pic is now too small to see any detail, can you make it bigger? I think there might be a size limit until you have made a certain number of posts, you could email it to me and I could try uploading it. email@example.com
