Even though I bought my unit in the original sealed packaging, there is no manual. And there is no audible sound when used in the 200 ohm range.

I HAVE THIS METER I LOANED IT OUT AND THE 10 AMP FUSE GOT BLOWN. DO I NEED TO REPLACE cost is almost as much as I paid

Asked by NotHandy November 26, 2018

Answers

To tell you the truth I'm not really sure, but you can check it in an outlet at your home and see if it works. I would say if it does, then no, I wouldn't replace the fuse. On the other hand these multi-meters are very inexpensive, so why not get you a brand new one for 10 bucks or less and be done with it! Good luck! Will P. . PS. I think the.fuse is just for the light inside the unit

The meter lights up with zeros when test like a battery the read stays on zero

You most likely have a burnt fuse. Take off the 4 small screws on the back at each corner and seperate the covers. There are 2 ceramic fuses (400ma, 600vdc) and test them with another multi-meter for continuity. I had one go out and it did exactly what yours is doing.

Nice meter. Bad test leads.
Right out of the box the test leads that plug into the unit are not a snug contact. No matter what setting it is on all I would get is zeros. It's because the test leads are loose. That's just plain defective. The factory should make sure the leads plug in snuggly to make a good contact. I had to cut away the plastic around the plugins and spread out the prongs. Now it seems to work just fine. Also to the other reviewers complaining about short test probes, there is a cap you can remove to make it longer.

Disappointed
It worked great the first few times I used it when I purchased it. I had it stored for about a year and went to use it and it doesn't work I tried replacing the battery and that didn't help. The screen displays random numbers when the leads are not in contact with anything (see images- you can see it still looks new too) and when switched to ohms it beeps even after I turn it off (couldn't upload video only images). I literally only used it about 3 times. I wouldn't recommend this product!

Fuses
Worked good till the fuse went out This meter takes a 400mA fuse. Home depot only sells 500mA fuses and I can't find 400's anywhere. Only. Wondering if the 500mA is a good idea to replace the 400 with. With my luck, probably not.
