    My 50C element just went dead. Cleaned the contacts but still dead. Verified the meter is working with a 5C and my HT.
    I've seen the threads on opening it up and repairing it but don't have a good method to calibrate it against a known meter.

    Is Bird the best choice to have it repaired or should I just buy a new element? Anyone have experience with this?
