Hello all, I have a Westinghouse 16sd. The mica resistor pack that go to the the switch are corroded broken etc... Some one said I could substitute 3 resistors. Anyone know what values the 3 should be?

You only need two resistors, a 5 ohm and a 10 ohm placed in series for 15 ohms total. That motor pulls about 1.3 amps at 115 volts, so the resistors should be 150 watts
