Don’t change the value of the resistor.
Besides, a 5W resistor will dissipate  just as much energy as a 3W if they are of the same ohmic value.
And don’t think a resistor is bad just because it runs warm.
The resistor in question will run warm. If the lamp has been out – or the
Beomaster hasn’t seen use for a long time, dust on the resistor may emit a warm smell
and even a little smoke for a minute or two as it warms up for the first time.
Not unlike many valve-based items.
That’s all normal.

If the resistor has indeed gone bad or measures very wrong, I suggest you ask at Beoparts-shop for a possible replacement.
