Hello,

What are your go-to remedies for a resistor that heats up just too dang fast?

I'd welcome all thoughts.

Thanks.
 
Hello,

What is the circuit where this resistor is used?
When it heats up very quickly, the power is way to much for the resistor.

first the reason for overheating is because the power reaching the capacitors is somehow higher than expected. second, was your circuit working better before? if yes then test the functionality of other components to ensure they are well.
