    How to Measure Voltage Drop Across Thermistors

    @Scottekarate I use this same meter - It's seems to be a pretty good meter but I have found I really don't like the AMP fork design, (forks to fat to fit between tight wire bundles and can't let it hang from the wires like with a clamp), other than that it's a great meter. The only other thing is I seem to always forget to push the function button to change to AC voltage check as it always starts in DC mode when set to voltage test.

    How to Measure Voltage Drop Across Thermistors

    The problem with using LoZ for low voltage DC measurements isn’t whether or not it auto ranges (AC to DC). The problem with using LoZ on low voltage DC circuits is that the input impedance of the meter on the LoZ setting is too low (“LoZ” stands for “low input impedance”). A low input impedance means more amps can go through the meter than the low voltage DC power supply on the board can handle. (The first webinar recording that Sam posted explains all this in detail.) The low input impedance causes the regulated power supply voltage to get “loaded down.”

    How to Measure Voltage Drop Across Thermistors

    If you’re measuring an AC circuit and you have a meter with a LoZ function, you should always use LoZ over the non-loading function. It’s the more reliable measurement. If you’re measuring low voltage DC with that meter you mentioned, then you should use the normal V function, since you don’t want to load down the circuit.

    It’s a ball and socket joint. I’ve seen the ball part completely sheared off before.

    I use this meter https://www.harborfreight.com/cm200a-200-a-fork-style-clamp-meter-64016.html LoZ switches between ac and dc would you still recommend using the V function? It's switches automatically too.

    i've ordered the rear bearing kit, will swap it out and respond back how it goes. thank you all for your help
  19. My main fuse is good and I have power to the unit. What next?

    Kenmore Dryer Humming

    I see what you mean about the holes on the motor mount, just noticed them after you pointed it out, however this unit is all factory from purchasing it 17 years ago and has never been opened up until yesterday (thought it was ten years old but was vastly off lol) . I've added a couple more photo's to that album I shared. I took another listen and the noise is definitely coming from the area I circled, which I assume would point to the rear bearing? I unfortunately dont have a 240 outlet in my garage where i worked on it yesterday and my laundry room is pretty narrow so Its a tad difficult getting decent pictures, and access for listening/troubleshooting behind it while it has power.

    @ifbinary I was looking at the picture you provided of the motor and idler. I'm not certain but something doesn't look quite right with the motor mount screws securing the motor mount to the floor? I see two holes that looks like it's possible where the original motor mount screws went? Did someone in the past drill holes and mount the plate to the base using other than the original mounting screws? I'm not sure about that but it caught my attention. Do some more manipulating of the idler and spring. Use your ears. A good trick locating noises at times is using a long screw driver or extension as a stethoscope...

    Thanks everyone for your replies. So after removing the back panel I removed the spring so that the motor was not turning the belt and drum, and the noise does go away. Also when i manipulate the metal arm (idler arm?) towards the right (denoted with arrow in picture) when the motor is driving the belt, the noise also goes away. I'm assuming this is loosening the tension? I did look at the blower wheel yesterday when i had the unit taken apart yesterday and it did appear fine to me, no noticable cracks that I could see but can do it again for a closer inspection. Forgive me for lack of correct terminology. For some reason i couldnt add pictures from the URL, so here is a link to a shared album if you dont mind taking a look. https://photos.app.goo.gl/DsPoFsDHrRjebB7t5
