Just bought one of these today and I couldn't get it to read zero after turning dial to the ohms switch x10 and shorting the leads. I changed the battery three times with new ones. What's wrong or what am I doing

Answer: 
You may have it backward. The zero of ohms is on the right side of the screen not the left so: Short the leads first and see the needle come over to the zero ohm right side. While your shorting the leads turn the knob until it zeros out on the right side of the screen. Another words, zero ohms appears as maximum continuity, and as the resistance increases it moves to the left. If the resistant is real Read More
You may have it backward. The zero of ohms is on the right side of the screen not the left so: Short the leads first and see the needle come over to the zero ohm right side. While your shorting the leads turn the knob until it zeros out on the right side of the screen.

So in ohms mode it reads right to left instead of left to right. Read Less

300 V AC vs 250 V AC Setting

This question is from Analogue Multimeter
Asked by
CT
Read all my Q&A
January 6, 2016
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.

Answer: 
The 300 volt graph is different and not well marked I would stick with using the 250 setting. Another words, it is in a different place on the meter because of a different max setting.

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.

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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter equipment! Bought 5 of them but one doesn't work. Will need to exchange it. I bought these to teach a Maker class I do with elementary school age children. They love being able to see the needle change when they do their battery experiments. Digital mulitmeters don't show ranges, just numbers and it's harder for kids to decipher a good battery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Commercial Electric meter model M1015B It's worked fine for me every time. I remove the battery which is no big deal to do with a small Phillips head screwdriver. No problems with it. No bad tool for basic testing of power conditions when doing DYI'er jobs around the house.
