Re: Hot Snubber

I am the last person to ask regarding anything electronic. Having said that, it seems to me that a resistor would have to be conducting current to get warm and a capacitor is supposed to block DC current. Is the snubber actually passing enough AC through the network to produce current fluctuations strong enough to heat the resistor?
 
Thanks for clarifying my ignorance.
