Default Re: Wee Megger - HELP

Was labelled 1.5kV 100nF, Not an electrolytic (different capacitance value to yours as this was a different model of megger)

HI All, after testing with an AVO 8 meter there was not volts on AC or DC. On the Digital Meter there was over 100 Volts AC and about 20 DC.

I dismantled the meter to make sure it was not the brushes. I cleaned the commutator and still not connecting between the two stators. Then decided to pull it apart.

The winding is Open Circuit....between these winding points.

Sadly it is not the Easy one to get at. I guess it is the one that comes up by the side of the stator.....

Not sure what's next

Just thought I would let you all know

Regards

Typical example of a high impedance digital meter detecting ghosts! Thanks for reporting back, this helps people in the future with similar repair jobs.

Chances are that if you got another megger for parts it would not have the same fault. (more economic than contemplating a rewind anyway..)

Hi, Yes it was a bit misleading with that Digi meter.

As you say, it might give some guidance to others who have the same problem

Regards and thanks to all you guys,,
