Hi people

I have a Rolson 1000 Amps Digital Clamp Meter. I'm not an electrician and hoped for some simple advice.

What I expected to happen was when I put the clamp jaws around a cable I would see a value in Amps. But anything I clamp always comes up 0.00. There is a "lock" button so you can lock the values on screen but this is off. I have tried everything from a kettle lead to a input on a distribution board.

I have tried all of the settings on the dial but I get nothing. The battery is new and the digital display does work, and when you switch the setting dial around the numbers do come up and then settle to 0.00 again.

Am I using the wrong tool or am I using it incorrectly? The cable goes through the loop and the loop closes on itself right??

Thanks for the advice
