Turn on the multimeter: To turn on the device, press the power button.

Select the mode: Choose the mode that you want to measure, such as AC/DC voltage, current, or resistance.

Set the range: Select the appropriate range for the mode you are measuring. The range determines the maximum and minimum values that the multimeter can measure.

Connect the probes: Connect the probes to the device and the circuit or component that you want to measure. The red probe is usually connected to the positive terminal, while the black probe is connected to the negative terminal.

Take the reading: Take the reading by placing the probes across the component or circuit you are measuring. The multimeter will display the measured value on the screen.

Interpret the reading: Interpret the reading by comparing it to the expected value or range. If the value is within the expected range, the circuit or component is working correctly. If the value is outside the expected range, the circuit or component may be faulty.

Turn off the multimeter: Turn off the device by pressing the power button.

Remember to follow all safety precautions when using a Fluke multimeter, such as wearing appropriate personal protective equipment and avoiding touching live circuits.
