Having issues with your 3 prong #240v #outlet? No power? Not sure what’s going on? This video will show you how to easily test the voltage of the outlet and how to use a digital multimeter to test!

This is a updated and revised version of my previous 240v outlet #test video located here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWYidR9krlU

I go over how to setup the digital multi meter to test the 240v outlet and how to test the outlet itself as well as some common issues you may encounter with your outlet. I installed this 3 prong 50 amp 240v outlet to run my welder off of a couple years ago. Initially the outlet was a 4 prong dryer plug which I changed to this 3 prong outlet.
