Customer Questions & Answers

300 V AC vs 250 V AC Setting

When I use the meter to measure a typical house outlet (which I know is 120 volts) and measure the voltage with the test leads using the 250 V (~) setting I get what I would expect ~ 120 volts ... however if I put the setting to 300 v ac (~) I get 50 volts. Can someone explain why I get different answers ? The scale does not even go up to 300 .. so I am not sure what that setting is even for.
Asked by: GJCT
I would not use the 300 VAC setting, unless it could be used first in a controlled setting. Testing would need to be done with a calibrated source. Also bear in mind that if testing with another meter in parallel the other meter if it is an analog meter may change the load on the circuit, which in turn changes the resulting voltage.

All my AC voltages in my house are reading 150 instead of 120V.. Can you tell me why?

Asked by: midge
I am guessing you are using the 300VAC volt scale that is not marked. Try using the 250VAC volt scale that is marked out well. Also, have you calibrated the needle on the meter while in Ohms mode? While in Ohms mode x1k touch the two leads of the meter together and it should read zero ohms (all the way over to the top right of the scale.) If it doesn't point directly to zero, turn the knob on the side back and forth until it does. That adjustment can effect the accuracy of the display of the voltage settings on some meters. After calibrating in that mode, turn the setting back to 250VAC and check the voltage again.

My M1015 will not work on 1.5v, but works fine on 9v batteries. Why?

Asked by: Jim
Dear Customer, it could be the resistance component defected, please contact customer service for repair or exchange. Thank you and have a great day.

Where does red lead plug and black lead

Asked by: ray
The red lead goes on the right side (V mA Ohm) and the black lead on the left side (com)

can i use this meter to test capacitors.

Asked by: deego
Doesn't have a cap check per say. If you had a formula for discharge you could, but you would need some in depth math ... so I will say no.

Which side is the AC on the meter?

Asked by: Paco
Dear customer, thanks for choosing our product. The left part with "V~" is the AC on the meter. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions please.

Howdy Anonymous, This unit only has a battery compartment door. This slides easily into the slot that holds that battery. Happy metering, Coach Dave

This meter is perfect for a low voltage electrician to use for testing. I purchased two to train some employees in some low voltage work. That said if you don't know that V=volts, A=amps, the horse shaped symbol is for ohms of resistance than you probably should let someone else do the testing so you don't get hurt. One person rated it low and said they couldn't understand why their is a fuse. I will tell you why: If there wasn't a fuse and by mistake you had it on the mA setting and went to check your wall socket ... the tip of the probe would melt off in a large flash of blinding light with the hot metal flying all over. Therefore a safety fuse. One person wondered why there is a knob on the side. It is not an off/on switch, it is a zero calibrator for the ohms setting. It is marked as such right on the front. You put the two leads together, the needle comes across and you turn the knob on the side until it stays on zero to calibrate it. All analog meters have one of these on them. Someone said the manual doesn't explain how to use the meter. A manual usually shows how a specific piece of equipment works different from another one of the same type. A meter manual like this has to assumes you know the basics of electricity, if not you would need several books to show all the different ways the meter could be used. Hopefully these facts are informative to everyone.

The symbols differentiating AC and DC might as well be hieroglyphics. I just use it for live circuits and continuity so once I figured out which was AC, it was fine. My biggest gripe is that the metal part of the probes isn't long enough to properly check outlets. You might as well remove the outlet cover and check from the sides of the outlet. I haven't found any optional probes that would allow the use of alligator clips either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get something else Bought this cause I was in a bind needed multimeter for a quick job and my normal one was not with me. I used once and then it quit working. Total waste of money. Ended up having to make trip back to shop to get mine. Would strongly advise getting something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value if you don't need instructions This meter works well, and what a fantastic bargain! Having used similar meters before, I didn't need to read the instructions. I used it as an ohmmeter (to check fuses), an AC ammeter to check line voltage, and as a battery tester. I appreciate the fact is has an analog display, not digital. I took a look at the instructions and realized that a novice could not possibly learn to use a meter with these instructions. But in my case, no need, the meter does what I want it to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor guide This thang is not for averege home owner.if your simple minded like me,the care guide doesn't does not care.you can tell ac from dc ect.unless with out knowing the symbols and what they mean and the care guide is terrible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confusing instructions for average home owner I can't honestly rate the products function because the owners manual isn't written for the average home owner, unless they also have an electrical engineering degree. The glaring error is the operating elements and connections section #3. The diagram has numbers but the cross reference listing doesn't, so you don't know what listing goes with what number. Unsure why the instructs can't include a simple diagram of where to set the dial depending on what type current you're measuring. As it is written now you need to know electrical symbols in order to work a $10.00 meter. Very, very frustrating.......

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Instruction book translated from gibberish to layman's English The line with the wave (left side) is AC. The dashed one is DC. Second, yep you need a small phillips head to install battery. Pretty self explanatory there. Works if checking batteries with it set on dashed (right) side when I checked the batteries from the TV remote. Tested it setting 250 on the wave squiggle side and it read 125 by plugging it into an extension cord, then plugging that into a wall. It's a heck alot cheaper than commercial rates that contractors charge. Still a better deal than lottery tickets too. I might consider getting some extra fuses for it. Good if you rarely ever use one and not interested in spending $45. I got it to work for at least 2 hours so far. Just remember to turn it if off I guess.
