1. Safety Information
WARNING
Before attempting battery & fuse removal or replacement,
disconnect the test leads from any energized circuits to
avoid hazard.
6-1. Battery Replacement
Replace the battery when “
” appears on the display.
+
1. Remove the two screws on the case cover. Then, detach
it from the top case.
To ensure that the meter is used safely, follow all of the
safety and operation instructions in this manual. If the
meter is not used as described in the manual, the safety
features of the meter might be impaired.
• Do not use the meter if the meter or the test leads look damaged,
or if you suspect that the meter is not operating properly.
• Turn off the power to the circuit under test before cutting,
unsoldering, or breaking the circuit. Small amounts of current
can be dangerous.
• Use caution when working above 60VDC or 30VAC rms.
Such voltages pose a shock hazard.
• When using the test lead, keep your fingers behind the guards
on the test lead.
• Disconnect the live test lead before disconnecting the
common test lead.
2. Unsnap the battery from the connector and replace it
with a new 9 volt battery.
• To avoid damage to the meter, do not exceed the input limits
shown below.
• This digital multimeter is designed for indoor use only.

`
This marking adjacent to another marking, terminal, or
operating device indicates that the operator must refer
to the explanation in the operating instructions to avoid
damage to the equipment and/or to avoid personal
injury.
WARNING
This WARNING sign denotes a hazard. It calls
attention to a procedure, practice or the like, which if
not correctly performed or adhered to, could result in
personal injury.

5-1 Preparation & Caution Before Measurement
1. The function switch should be set to the range to be
measured before operation. If the function must be
switched during a measurement, always remove the test
leads from the circuit being measured.
2. If the unit is used near noise-generating equipment, be
aware that the display may become unstable or indicate
large errors.
3. Avoid using the unit in places with rapid temperature
variations.
4. In order to prevent damage or injury to the unit, never
fail to keep the maximum tolerable voltage and current,
especially for the 10A current range.
5. Carefully inspect the test leads. If damaged, discard and
replace.
6. Be sure to check the annunciator on the display for
safety indicator.
