yes, the reset button is tripping. I need to go down and see what the voltage is, I'm not sure. I have a digital multimeter...not real sure how to even use it. it has a VOLT portion on the dial with 1000,200,20,2,200m. what should I put it on?
yes I took a photo of it and connected accordingly
it has OHM/VOLT/AMP/FARAD. each with multiple numirical amounts to select from. inbetween there is an hFE and also an arrow with a +
ok....that will be great if that fixes it. I wish I didn't delete the pics I took of the fried thermostat. I guess I couldn't tell the difference or somehow or another mixed them up. thanks again for your patience and help!
