Hi all,

I was wondering if anybody has come across this fault before that I seem to be getting with my Megger MFT1552.

When I measure the voltage it reads around 260V (iv tried it in a few different properties). Then if I switch it to the RCD auto test or any of the RCD individual tests it bumps up to over 300v, flashes and doesn't let me continue. When I swotch off the socket/supply it does go do to 0 so its not registerong a voltage when there isn't one it just seems to be registering the voltages really high

I really don't want to have to call it a day with the MFT as its a great bit of kit albeit an oldey so was just wondering if anyone has come across this before?

Thanks for any info :)

Send the MFT away to Megger and ask them to check operation and a costing of any repairs that they uncover, if it's BER then time for a new one.

The 1500 series are no longer supported by Megger so it will need to be a private repair.

try The Calibration Centre at Stafford. They provide an excellent repair service at reasonable cost.

Ok thanks guys, so it's sounding like a repair jobby then rather than a turn off and on again :(

At least you admitted it, well done and a cheap fix.
