    I would change the resistor. I think this is a "ballast" in series with the light circuits to absorb the surge when you switch on a cold filament lamp.

    Replace it - its not expensive and if it blows again - well you might be looking at the triacs.

    BTY I have P400 and so far I have just replaced fuses when a lamp goes- touch wood.
