(5) Repeat step (4) with meter connected to terminals 3 and 4.
(6) Tape the bulb of a thermometer or junction of a thermocouple to the body of the heater thermostat,
and connect the multimeter to terminals one and two. Use a 150 watt lamp bulb or a heat source. Gradually
apply heat while observing both the thermometer and the multimeter. Continuity should dropout at 145 to 155°
F (63 to 68o C). Remove heat source and let the thermostat cool while observing the thermostat and multimeter.
Continuity should be re-establishd ed 100 to 120° F (38 to 49oC).
