Need help with electronics part name
I have zero knowledge of electronics, but I know for a fact that I popped a certain part of my new iron's circuitboard when I accidentally plugged it into a 220v when I should've bought a 100V transformer.
That said, I'd like to ask if anyone knows what part the attached image has, so I can get an idea of how to go about repairing it.
I've gone through the whole thing, and the only notably-dirtied part of the iron is on one circuit board.
As far as I know, all I'd need to do is to clip it out, and solder in a new part, though any advice on how to go about it would be nice.
The encircled part seems to have exploded. I've managed to use the iron prior to taking it apart (after I've bought the 100V transformer), and while the ironing function works, the button (which is connected to the broken part) for enabling the steam-spraying function fails to activate, as well as the LED by the handle.
I'm willing to provide more images and info for anyone who'd be willing to help. I really wanna get this running again.
Hey zakk, thanks for replying! I'll try to answer as best as I can, since I got a bit lost with some of your jargon. (:
the area around the cracked/popped part had two letter-combinations near it, and I'm sure one of which belongs to it (the other belonging to the other wire).
in case the picture doesn't make it clear, the set of letters are AC2 and ZNR1. I don't know how that translates to you guys, but I hope that helps.
I'm afraid I don't own a multimeter, but here are pictures of the whole iron, and what portions of the affected section of the circuitboard I could get. I didn't want to remove everything from the body since I didn't want to compound the problem any further, and from what I know only the circuit from the handle is fried.
also thanks jayeff for the response! the faulty part just cracked, that's it (as far as I know). Googling the letters seems to give me Panasonic-brand "Transient/Surge Absorbers", so I guess that sheds some light here?
Is this a good question?
