I just use analog, don't have to worry about a little water, have a separate temp meter and p/t chart to do superheat/subcool

Fluke 87v and a fluke i200s current clamp, can clamp the wire and have about 5 feet of cable to the meter, it also fits in those small spaces nice

depends on the model fluke, but make sure you have the right terminals hooked up (common and voltage AC, not Current), and switch the dial to the V~ symbol, start probing it. Most modern flukes are auto-ranging, so no need to worry about that

Should just look like a plug in the top of the tank, unscrew it and take a look

In Topic: Nothing but sound, not even any fury!

The user manual says one thing and the furnace data plate says another. You're shocked, I know.

Truly, I can't find any pressure switch on the PartsDirect parts list.

Gotta be there. If it was a bad inducer you'd hear it or smell it.

I've seen the inducer break at the hub, or come loose from the motor shaft, so the motor runs but doesn't induce a draft, and they won't even try to light then
