    My 3D printer went out and I need to replace a transistor. Do you guys know where I can find a CC1179 transistor?

    This is admittedly a long shot.

    engineering student, but I just used Google:

    Is this it?

    hope that helps

    Yeah Digikey is a good bet. Check with your EE Office at your school, at my school we get a pretty good discount and free overnight shipping.

    That's not a transistor. It's a time-delay solid-state relay, and a pretty high-power one at that (50 amps @ 240VAC).

    I'm not sure why a 3D printer would have a time-delay SSR of any kind, much less one of that power. It seems more like something for an HVAC or furnace system.

    Also, the part number that google so obligingly found is a Digikey part number (stock number), not the manufacturer's number that would be printed on the part. So I suspect it's not the correct part, but I could be wrong.

    Best thing to do at this point is for the OP to take a picture of the dead part and post it. Also, compare with the picture on the Digikey product page.

    I just googled the part # didn't really pay attention to what it was. I know digikey would likely have it.

    Between Digikey and Mouser, you can likely find 99% of every electronic component currently being manufactured.
