Cannot get my Fluke 36 clampmeter to read amps

1. make sure that all buttons can be pressed freely (not stuck)
2. make sure when measuring AC current that you press AC button and AC sigh is on LCD
3. make sure that jaws are closed completely
4. clamp meters use Hall effect and can only measure current flowing through ONE conductor (you cannot measure current around power cord (which has 2-3 or more conductors)
5. when in DC setting and you turn zero knob does value changes (it should)

My fluke 179 shows batt in any function and it does not go out, with battery even new

send it back to Fluke for service if you are certain that battery is good and connector is not damaged (check Voltage on 2 pins that come to the board)

Hi, that is the error message indicating a EEPROM error and unfortunatlely, you can't do anything except have the meter serviced by either Fluke directly, or by an authorized Fluke test equipment dealer.

Since Fluke doesn't provide the specs and coding for their products, you wouldn't be able to repair the meter properly, even if you could burn and program your own chipset.

Here's a copy of the manual for your meter, so you can contact Fluke for servicing and see the other info relating to it (for your future reference)

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Fluke products are typically quality test instruments and there might be a possibility that you're still covered under their warranty, so checking with them is the best avenue for getting it back to working condition.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
