I would be interested in this option too since my most expensive multimeter is useless. I asked about this option in this thread couple months ago but no response so far...

I've tried to make a bit more targeted photos of my meter (SN 180701835 that is behaving well).

I can see some damage on that PTC and the shrink around it.

(the DMM case side is not damaged. What looks like damage is shadow of the component)

Not sure if you're asking for info or just pointing this out, but of course future readers should push the metal shield tight against the side of the bottom case before re-assembly to avoid damaging the PTC.

FYI, I have asked KaneTest for comment.

They have come back and said they can't see how it could have survived the factory calibrator HV test if it was a manufacturing error. But they have agreed to replace it. So email me your courier details.
