You are correct, the object in the picture fell off when I wiggled it. Must have been some debris from the wiring. So yes, there is no jumper between terminals 2 & 3. Sorry for not checking that more closely...was hard to get my fingers around there.

Next problem, as you said, I just looked at the scale and read ohms while I was measuring voltage. So I recalibrated the unit to 0, set the selector to RX 1KOhms (the only resistance setting it has) and tested the terminals. They read 0.  I'm guessing my little radioshak analog multimeter doesn't have a range that I can use to measure this...

Ok, so new digital multimeter purchased and a reading (while setting it to the 200Ohms range) gives me 4.9. I assume that's 49 Ohms, which would mean I'm pulling close to 2.5amps? that sounds much better to me, but not sure if it's correct.

Let me know what you think. Again, sorry for the ingorance on multimeters and resistance readings. First time for me.

Thanks,
