Question about Hioki 3281 Clamp Meters

1 Answer

I have a Hioki 3281 clamp meter which blew off couple of days ago while doing a tests. It does not turn on now. It was during a controller testing situation where the turbine went to runaway and voltage crossed this product voltage rating. I am not exactly sure but this is the instance where it blew off. I was wondering if the meter is repairable or not?

What does E-7 mean?on my accu chek meter after inserting strip with blood?

It can mean one of a couple of things:
~An error occurred, when this happens you should turn it off, reset the unit, and turn it back on after at least 20 seconds have passed. You can also remove the battery and put it back in if you don't want to reset the meter
~You need to run a control test with control solution to realign the machine
~You inserted a used test strip or faulty test strip into the meter, try another strip

No continuety by ohms

if all other functions work them you probably have blown input protection (maybe applied voltage while trying to measure ohms)

The fuse blew on the Motor Control. I replaced it and it blew again, then I unplugged the motor and replaced the fuse and it did not blow. Could that mean the motor is bad?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} It certainly sounds as though it is motor related. First check the carbon brushes if they are worn down replace them. Then the commutators on the armature (The little copper segments that the brushes rub on as the motor turns) if one of these have lifted or become dislodged you will need a new motor. It could also be wiring related so check all the wires and make sure they are sound and not shorting out on anything. As the fuse has blown twice check all the tracks on the module and timer to be sure they are still OK. If you have a Megger then do a resistance test to be sure there are no other short circuits in the system. Really any electrical testing should be done with a test meter such as a Megger, although for continuity testing a multi meter is fine. If you have never done any testing with a meter use this link to show you how

Does not spin clothes dry

Run the washer empty on the lowest water level. Cold will save energy. Watch it fill, close the lid, stay there. Don't advance the timer no matter how tempting as this could skip a program interval. When you hear the water draining listen for a sound change and open the top and see if it drained completely -- pumped out empty. Close the lid so the cycle can continue. During the spin cycle open the lid. See if the drum was really turning fast -- it will be slowing down as soon as you open the lid because that stops the motor. If everything seems normal, then the problem may be transmission or belt slipping under load. Do you have the problem only on large loads? If the spin speed is slow during the test then the transmission is not shifting in to high, controlled by a solenoid. Check the solenoid for power during the spin cycle. Operate the washer on blocks or outside on saw horses to see full function of underneath parts and have access to electrical wires for testing. Use precautions testing and plug into a GFCI. Take your car battery jumper cables and clamp to a water pipe ground and to the underneath frame where the motor mounts. This should keep you from getting electricuted standing in water and holding a test meter.

Blows warm air, unpluged it for 2 days plugged back in blew very

Either the start relay and start capacitor or the Adaptive Defrost control is burned out. If you have a voltage meter we can test a few things like the compressor and the capasitor. The part number for the Adaptive defrost is 241508001 and found inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. I can help you locate the problem if you like. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

ok You have a blown Motor controller module. There could also be another fault that caused this to blow up. eg a faulty drain pump, lid lock or Diverter valve, inlet valve. you'd need to use a ohm meter to test all these. cheers

Cant figure out my car audio problems!!!!!

There are a couple of tests you can perform. I'd first recommend checking the shield ground. You'll need an ohm meter. The details can be found on the following page.

RCA shield ground test

You can also test the output with the multimeter. Set the multimeter to AC volts. If it's not an auto-ranging meter, set it to a voltage range of ~2v AC. Disconnect the RCA cables from the head unit. Touch one meter probe to the outer ring of the head unit's RCA jack. Touch the other probe to the metal contact in the center of the RCA jack. With the head unit near full volume and a clean signal source, you should read at least one volt on musical peaks. If you have a bass disc or a test tone disc (~60hz sine wave), use those.
