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

Some amusing answers below; zeroing the meter for Ohm's test has no effect on measuring voltages (AC or DC).

how to set knob dont know dc side from ac side how to read dc volts &dc amps please help booklet has blank diagrams on it

Asked by: jim
The LEFT side of the dial's scale is for AC testing, indicated by a "V" with a wavy line (alternating current). The RIGHT side of the dial's scale is for DC, indicated by a "V" with a constant line (steady current) over a dashed line (AC current rectified into DC current). As for testing a circuit's current, first note that this meter only reads up to 10 milliamps (mA) on the "10" setting (bottom right of the dial), or 250 milliamps on the "250" setting, depending on the dial's setting. Testing currents greater than these two respective settings will fry your unit's fuse (located inside the unit; the fuse can be replaced) or will damage the unit altogether. This tester is only good for low-current testing of circuits powered by small batteries (AAA, AA, C, D, 9V, etc.), or common 110V AC/DC transformers (wall warts, as some call them--check the amperage output listed on the outside of the DC transformer to ensure it does not exceed 250 mA). Before you test for amps, calibrate your multimeter's needle by setting the dial to the X1k (resistance) setting, touching the metal tips of the black and red leads together firmly, and then adjusting the adjustment dial on the left side of the multimeter until the needle is dead-centered on the zero (far right) of the analog scale. Okay, to test for amperage in a circuit: (1) first REMOVE (or DISCONNECT) the negative side battery wire from the negative battery terminal/connector of your circuit to be tested. (2) Next, on your multimeter, set the dial to measure either 250mA or 10mA, as needed. (3) Ensure the multimeter's black lead is connected to the "COM" plug to the left side of the multimeter's dial, and that the red lead is connected to the VmAΩ plug to the right side of the multimeter's dial. (4) Then attach/touch the multimeter's black lead tip to the battery's negative battery post (or the transformer's negative connector). (5) Finally, touch the multimeter's red lead tip to the DISCONNECTED negative battery wire of the circuit to be tested. The current (milliamperes) will be indicated by the multimeter needle. Note: It is very important that the circuit you are testing is NOT energized during this test! The negative terminal of the battery must be disconnected from the negative battery connector of the circuit you are testing. Failure to skip this step may damage your multimeter.

Where does red lead plug and black lead

Asked by: ray
Red goes into the right one with the red circle and mA, V and Ohm symbols. Black goes into the left one marked COM. Red is positive (+) and Black is negative (-).

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.

Most reviews that rate this meter low are from untrained customers. Understanding ohms law and how to apply it takes training.

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.

As a very experienced electronics tech for 45 years, this is a perfectly fine little, basic meter for most household and hobbyist tasks. Don't compare it to a Simpson 260 or a Fluke 87.

This is my primary multimeter for low voltage electronics work (circuit board/mainboard repair). It is reliable for measuring voltage (AC/DC), resistance, and small amperage (up to 250 mA). For home 110/220V electrical work, this tool is not well suited for such. In this case, I recommend a low budget Klein Tools (ET200) Electronic Voltage/Continuity Tester, which serves very well for the handyman home electrician.

First, if you don't know how to use it, don't look up a product manual. Just go online and lookup how to use analoqg multimeter. They all work the same, manufacturer assumes you know your backside from a tea kettle. So disregard all the reviews complaining about a lack of manual. If you dont know how to use one, dont buy one. Second, disregard most of the reviews who said it only worked once, unless they say they tested the fuse and the battery. Third, about the thumb wheel on the side, go back to number one. Its not an on/off switch, it zeroes the ohm meter, thats all it does. So this is a good basic analog multimeter. If you know how to use one, buy it. If not, then you've got no business buying one. Hire someone who knows what they are doing insteqd.

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 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.
