My BC5000 has gone into a state of silence: no motor spinning, belts OK, display shows: 000 1.
I met a person the other day,who, from his former B&O servicing experience, told me that there might be a faulty resistor in the erea that controls the relay, located someplace in the back section, near the big capacitors; he could not tell which R.
Could anyone tell me which one he referred to before I start dismantling my beauty?.

Probably a 10 Ohm resistor working with one of the voltage regulators.
It's not shown in all manuals but it sits (fitted radially) right next to the regulator, almost center at the bottom board in the power supply. 
It's a safety component, make sure to fit a flameproof type.
