Sometimes it’s easy to identify what part needs to replaced on your appliance because you can see the damage: a torn gasket, a broken hinge, a cracked drawer.
But when it comes to electrical components like fuses, thermostats, switches, heating elements, and circuit boards it can be a bit trickier because you can’t just look at the part and see that it needs to be replaced.
The best thing to do is to test them with a volt-ohm, or multimeter. Multimeters can be found in both digital and analog formats and allow you to quickly and easily check that the part is operating at the right resistance or has continuity.
