I did add an extra ground, but no relay. Simply put, a poor ground will have the same effect as low voltage.

No Bob, yes the resistor does dissipate some power, but it also blocks flow. So the current in the entire circuit is reduced.

?? I have reread Bob's comments, and they are correct. He shows it (the resistor) reduces (if it blocked, the fan would not turn, no current would flow!) the current (flow) in the entire circuit. Why the No comment?confused smiley

You are correct, Bob and Frank. I did not realize the top portion of Bobs post was a quote from American Mel's post. I thought Bob was writing that as an opening statement. Typically we separate someone else's post in one form or another. I never looked closely at the lower portion thinking Bob was trying to explain why the upper portion was correct. MY BAD.

Mel, I hope we are helping your understanding of this more clear. If not I will try again.

Heh heh.
Well, If we all agree then that Bob's explanation is the correct one, then I think I am kinda getting this electrical thing.
Sorts.
For now.
Until the next electrical question, thread comes up.
