Passo 1 — Testing Power Cord Continuity ¶
Set the multimeter to continuity test mode.
Verify that the positive lead is plugged to the voltmeter/ ohmmeter outlet.
Passo 2 ¶
Test for a potential open circuit by using one multimeter lead to touch one of the prongs on the AC side of power cord. Use the other lead to touch one end of the console side of the power cord.
Repeat the above directions in step 2 for the other outlet and prong of the power cord.
Passo 3 ¶
Test for a potential short circuit by touching each prong on the AC side of the power cord.
If your power cord has passed all of the steps above, then you have successfully tested that your power cord is in working order.
