Well, after getting passed around to six different people, I found that GE doesn’t own Protimeter anymore and it’s owned now by Amphenol. They want $325 to fix my Surverymaster even thought it’s never worked.
I took it to a local electronics repair shop and they said it’s pulling three times the power from the battery even when it’s off.
Kind of ridiculous and I don’t want to spend this much money just to get another faulty product.
Does anybody have a suggestion for a different meter? I talked to a few other people in my area that have Surverymasters and they all said they have the same problem with them.
I use an extech MO297. This moisture meter is awesome and very accurate. It can be used pinned or pinless, gives you relative humidity and temperature. Also has a IR thermometer if you need it. I can also Bluetooth it to my Flir camera if needed.
I would never trade it for another. cost is about $700.00. They make a model exactly the same but without the blue tooth for a little cheaper.
I have not changed the battery since I bought it over a year ago.
