We're going to talk about testing the towel warmer switch today. If you look on this towel warmer switch you will see that there are three pins sticking out of the back of it. There's a gold one and two silver ones. For us to test if the switch is working or not we're going to be placing our test ohms probes on the two silver pins.

Now that you have the probes on the two silver pins, you want to take your ohm meter and set it for ohms. You can see here we have it set for the 200 range. We can also do continuity, anything like that. All we're going to be doing is moving the switch back and forth and looking for the display on the meter to change.

If the display on the meter changes each time you turn the switch on and off it tells you that your towel warmer switch is working correctly.
