Thank you for your question. You will need to call our Tech Support team at 866.248.6357 because we have a contract with Ozark and handle repairs a little differently for O'Reilly stores than we would typical repairs.

Hello. I have one of these meters where I work (FleetPride) and for a number of years it worked great. However now as soon as you attach it to a battery the bottom coil starts glowing red and at times will even smoke. It will not test correctly.

I have one of these meters and as soon as I attach it to a battery the bottom coil very quickly is glowing red hot. It didn't do this before and now it reads every battery as faulty.

Hi Sara, thank you for contacting us. We would recommend reaching out to our Technical Support Team at 866-248-6356 to go over a few troubleshooting steps, but we'll likely need to issue you an RMA to return the tester to us for evaluation.
