Default testing ice maker heater
Model Number: RSW2400EAE   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years

I am trying to test different parts of the ice maker module to see if they are good, such as the heater. I have been told to use a multimeter set on RX1.
I have a digital multimeter but the scale setting doesn't have X1. So, I can't make any sense out of the readings I get. My scale is 200, 2K, 20K, 200K, etc. Can someone tell me how to test with the multimeter I have?

Choose the 200 setting.

The following article on our forum will explain in detail how to run a continuity test using either an analog meter or a digital meter - How To Check Continuity With Ohmmeter
