questions measuring oven temp sensor

3 posts in this topic

I have pulled the oven temperature sensor out of the oven and am trying to measure it with my friend's analog multimeter.

When I put the leads on the sensor, the needle starts jumping all over the place. It doesn't stay still to get a reading.

Does this indicate that the sensor needs to be replaced?

thanks,

Assuming you are using your friend's meter correctly, the answer to your question is yes.

most are about 1100 ohms at room temp. the pins are real small, make shure your meter leads are making good contact
