Looks like my Fluke is not going to work for this job. Either the thermistor I just checked is totally shot (no reading), or the resistence is to low for my meter.
From the manual (p54, table 3) posted by JWWebster, the thermistor values are kilo ohms. eg @20o
C is 6.2K, @0o
C is 16.3K. Use the 100K setting on your Fluke. If you get very low resistance, less than 1k, the thermistor is shorted.
If you don't get zero reading when putting two leads together, the problem is with your Fluke.
