Blown 200mA fuse on DT-9205B+ Multimeter

Well, I goofed... I used the 200mA leads when I should've used the 20A leads. Zapped my ammeter with a little over an amp of inrush current testing a 120V AC solenoid valve.

Anyway, the rest of the multimeter functions, including the 20A leads, work just fine. Seems I just blew the fuse in the 200mA circuit, since it behaves like an open circuit now. Does Adafruit sell replacement fuses, or should I just get a whole new meter?

You shouldn't need a new meter, just a new fuse. Unfortunately we don't carry them.

Mouser or Digikey will have what you need though. Could you post a photo showing the one that blew and we'll see if we can hook you up with the right part. 800x600 images usually work best.

I believe it's the one labeled "FU1," in the center near the 200mA and ground pins.

Thank you.. that looks like a standard 5x20 package. This one should work as a replacement:
