All day the forum text aligns to the right side of the screen! Anyone else having this problem? I am only having it on this forum on 2 different pcs. I do not see where I have changed any forum settings or any settings relevant to this issue.

First Post / Thermometer Question

06 March 2013 - 09:21 PM

Hey folks,


New tech here. I'm fairly new to appliance repair, although I have been repairing TVs/electronics in-home since the 1990's. Our company started repairing appliances about 18 months ago to supplement the "changing" TV repair business. We do warranty service for a few brands now: Samsung, LG, Sub-Zero/Wolf, Viking, Frigidaire/Electrolux. We do a lot of Samsung and are considered a MSC (of course we also do their electronics repairs). Being new to appliance repair, I have grown to enjoy it so far... and I know I am probably alone on this here in the Appliantology realm, but I like working on Samsung. I know them pretty well and can deal with most repairs pretty easily. I admit though, I have limited experience on other brands. Viking is a pain in the rear and seems to always be multiple trips with annoying customers.


ok... my question..

I so not have a good thermometer. I am drooling over the Fluke 52-2, but I am nut sure if I want to drop $200+ right now. Can anyone suggest something cheaper that would have reasonably similar function? How are the Fluke 116 as far as the accuracy of the thermometer? I use a  Fluke 115 and love it. I thought the 116 might be compact also since it would have the basic meter functions and thermometer in one package.


I am open to suggestions
