From the unit:

The bottom line rule on when to use a loading meter and when to use a DMM is this:

– When measuring AC power voltages used to drive a load, use a loading meter only. NEVER use a DMM on these types of voltages unless your DMM has the LoZ function.

Does that describe what you’re doing when you measure voltage on a dryer element?
