I have a kal Equip m 4260 batt load tester. I hook it up to the batt & engage the switch. The elements get hot but no reading. Seems to be the meter. The connections look good. Is there anything I can do to it?

I have a 1992 gmc jimmy on a water access only island. it stands out in all weathers in the Vancouver area of BC. The vehicle is only used at weekends and when parked I disconnect the battery negative...


Cranking and not even trying to fire is usually a fuel pump failure. First be sure it is quiet at the vehicle area. Battery is fully charged. Set in vehicle, radio & a/c-heater off. Turn key to on/run position for 3-5 seconds there should be a faint sound of electric motor (fuel pump) running. Turn key off for 10 seconds & try again. No sound of it running? Then next simple check is to have a person crank the engine while you hit the bottom of the fuel tank in center area with a hammer. Repeatedly hit it with solid hits (not too hard, you do not want to damage the tank) while cranking. If the engine starts the cause is the fuel pump motor failure. This requires to remove the fuel from the tank & lower the tank to replace the fuel pump. You must get at the level below 1/4 tank to safely handle the tank.
If your engine did not start & you do hear a fuel pump 3-5 second prime then you could have a ignition failure. The most common is the coil wire corrosion in the boot and the tower of the coil. Check this at the distributor also. Also check all spark plug wires for corrosion. Best to replace these parts if corroded. If you do not replace them next best is to wire brush and seal with wheel bearing grease or ignition dielectric grease. Use grease on new parts you are replacing also. Sometimes the grease you add causes the boot to seal & air in the boot pushes the boot back off a little. The boot needs to be released of the air in it. Slip a very small screwdriver under the boot while pushing it on then there is a way for the air to escape.

Installed new upper & lower elements & thermostats, only top htr works


If original problem was caused by sediment burning out lower element, did you clean sediment out of water heater when changing lower element?
Two element water heaters are 240V.
Thermostats cut power on one hot wire, but 240V circuit has 2 hot wires. So lower element has power at all times coming from the red wire.
1) Use ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> test each screw of lower element to bare metal part of water heater. Each screw should show 120V. If there is no power, then upper thermostat is defective, screw on upper thermostat is loose, or red wire between upper and lower parts of water heater is bad.
2) Remove wires from lower element. Use continuity tester or multimeter set to ohms <> test across both screws of element to see if power travels through element <> if element is bad, then continuity tester will not light up and multimeter will show no ohms. Put wires back on element after test.
3) Start with cold water in tank. Turn on water heater & upper element will turn on. Put ear on side of tank to hear if upper element is heating water. Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 240V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 0V.
Put ear on side of tank. When upper element turns off: Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 0V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 240V. If this test shows 0V and 0V, then upper thermostat is bad. If reading is correct, immediately move to next test.

4) Turn temp on lower thermostat to 150. Using ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> Test across both screws of lower element. If there is no reading, and you know element is good from step 2, then lower thermostat is bad, or wire is bad between lower element and lower thermostat, or wire is bad between lower thermostat and top part of heater.
5) Test across both lower thermostat screws, should read 240V.If this test is good, it means wires are good. Put jumper wire across both screws of lower thermostat, and test lower element again. If element finally turns on with jumper wire, then lower thermostat is bad.

If wire is bad between upper and lower parts of water heater, and water heater has tight-fitting 2" foam insulation, it usually indicates water heater replacement.

I hooked up the leviton IP106 dimmer switch for a single pole and when I test the it, switching it off and on it stays hot.


I'm assuming you've connected the line (hot) on the black and the load (out to fixture) to the red? So does the light stay on or your tester is measuring voltage. Some electronic controls will test voltage on a tester. if there is no load connected
