Answer: 
First put AA battery in place in the back. You will need a thin Phillips to get to it.
Adjust the Ohm with a left side wheel. Put terminals together and then bring needle to zero (all the way to the right top scale) using the wheel.
AC side is left with a symbol that is a capital V followed by a squiggly line. Use this for household current.
DC is on the right side with a capital V followed a straight

AC side is left with a symbol that is a capital V followed by a squiggly line. Use this for household current.
DC is on the right side with a capital V followed a straight line over a dashed line. This side is for batteries and some doorbells.

Answer: 
If you can't find a replacement, which is probably impossible to do, get yourself an 18 inch length of 14 or 12 gauge copper wire, strip an inch at both ends, and give this a try.
Be very careful not to touch the stripped wire with your bare hands as it will give you a most unpleasant and possibly lethal electrical shock! Understand that I do not recommend this method but it might serve you as an

You would do everyone a favor by throwing this multi-meter where it belongs and getting another one of better quality.

Rated 1.6 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nothing... just not working I replaced battery from factory battery, still nothing working. I need another Analog Multimeter for my son.. It will waste your time and money. Worst Analog Multimeter ever.. And I noticed many review has been LOWest star on this produce. I should have check this information before I buy em. March 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works fine for what I want I bought this to test batteries. Yesterday, I used it to test Christmas tree bulbs. Works fine. To check battery in unit, cross the probes and watch how far the needle moves in the "battery test" area of the dial. My only complaint is the roller switch for on/off is not marked; and, in fact, doesn't have any effect. Great price. And I love that it's analogue. I had to really hunt for analogue! mb December 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Non Functioning Poor Instructions Bought this multimeter and brought it home. The directions included were unfollowable. Spent over an hour on-line trying to find directions. Never did figure it completely out. When I did figure out 1 test it did not work. I don't know why Home Depot continues to sell it. I use Home Depot all the time and they always refund for me what doesn't work or is defaulty, but his item is not worthy to be the store. November 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great meter for the price Works well when used correctly. Not sure why they would put a fuse in it. To replace the fuse would cost more than the meter itself. December 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible manual. I really do feel the need to echo everyone else's frustrations with the manual. It is next to useless. The only thing the manual effectively explains is how to test batteries. Additionally, I am disappointed in Home Depot's turnaround time on this. It's October of 2013. Home Depot acknowledged the problem over a year and a half ago. They responded to user Rembrandt's review that he wrote on 2/8/12. It says: "Response from Home Depot THD Customer Service February 10, 2012 Thank you for your feedback. Mastech is aware of the issue with the instructions and is working on updating the manuals. THD Customer Service" So what happened, Home Depot? October 29, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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....... September 4, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No instruction manual Unless you're an electrical engineer the dial on this thing is meaningless. There's symbols which, I'm sure, mean something to someone but no translation in the meager little manual that comes with it. There's not even a picture of the dial in the manual. There's gold, white and green colors on the dial but no indication on the dial or manual what those colors refer to. There is no online manual from this company either. Doesn't HD check whether a product has a decent manual before they purchase it? It would sure cut down on returns such as mine is going to be. August 25, 2013
