Default Re: AVO VCM163 - Some faults I have had

What a very good observation I must admit I had never considered this. Of couse, a failed heater would lead to rather poor readings on the dead side! As I use the full test regime (leaks. Ia and gm), that would rapidly become apparent. But on a quick heater check regime it would be highly misleading.
