<< < (8/9) > >>

desert:
speaking of repair clinic and dryer coils. They say that trying to test dryer coils with a multitester would be inconclusive. Is that true? This is an electric part correct?. Looking for continuity would be a waste of time.?

Got a link to where you read that?


By multi tester do you mean multimeter or some kind of continuity tester with just a light and/or beeper on it?


This video talks about checking a heating element to check continuity on a dryer heating element.

I use a multimeter all the time to check continuity on dryer heating elements to see if they are bad or not.

when i say multitester i am mean a fluke digital VOM. I do not have a link i sent them a private message asking them what readings i should get on a meter for an ohms check and their response was testing the coils would be inconclusive.

Hmm, don't know why they would say that.
How did they suggest testing it then?


desert:
How do they suggest testing?..good question. I would see if i can pull up that message later but i think what they were trying to get at is just replace them.  I never got to the bottom of actually testing the coils or what the ohms reading should be. Oh, and yes I am a fluke fan:) :cheers:
