What kind of meters do any of you guys use for check HV doides in Microwaves.

I've been using a old Micronta analog for a really long time and that's pretty much all i use it for besides capacitors and occasional micro switches.

I want to get a new one just so I wont be stuck in the water when this one fails, but for some reason a cant find one locally that will work.

what am I missing here, 9V supply, at least 10K, ???

OR

you can use just about any analog voltmeter with a 9v (or more) battery in series.

Personally, I use a Fluke 87 but I'm pretty sure this arrangement will work with just about any meter:
