No repairs required for this unit, just some clean-up. The external clean-up has been documented in blog post Dirty Multimeter Clean-up, so most of the photos have been moved there.
Leaky capacitor issue discussion at EEVblog. There is also a video by Martin Lorton on the topic.
I need the knob of Fluke 189 as the contacts are miplaced.
i lost may Fluke 189 rotary switch contacts… can buy that things tnx..
None of the rotary switch parts are on the list of user-replaceable parts in the manual. So unfortunately, I do not know where you can obtain the contacts.
I have the same problem. Let me know, please, if you found the contacts somewhere.
Do you know where I can gets the battery terminal contacts strips, the whole set, like the ones you place on photograph 17????
My experience: I just repaired my Fluke 187. I had minor issues with some contacts (screen and power supply).
It took time till I realised that the rotary switch contacts can easily be lost during operation. Strangely, with one of them lacking, the Fluke seemed to work but could not switch off.
Thus, be very careful with these switch contacts when opening the device.
