Two questions, One, I have a amprobe am-12 meter. In the ohms section the settings to select from are 2000k, 200k, 20k, 2000, 200. Which one do I click to? Second ques., where is the over temp sensor?

Ok set it to 200

The over temp sensor is in the discharge duct it is round about the size of a 50 cent piece with 2 wires going to it
