The meter makes an audible sound and reads "shrt"

I did not check it set to ohm's until you asked me to test the resistance and twist the inductor. This meter is pretty new and I am still learning how to use it.

I think something is funny with my meter, I read the 0.1 ohm resistors to the left of the inductor and the read 0.1 on ohms, but shrt on continuity. Is this my meter malfunctioning or does it just see low resistance as a short?

Anything under 15 ohms, my meter see's as a short.

Set the meter to ohms for critical measurements.

If it reads shrt under 15 ohms, you should not use that mode for this type of work.

If the meter is set to ohms, an I touch the leads to any resistor or the speaker terminal, I get a reading. If I switch the meter to diode/continuity, the meter reads "shrt" and beeps if I touch the leads to any resistor or the speaker terminals with a resistance below 15 ohms

Ok, so my meter just sees the low resistance as a short on that setting. That may explain alot of issues I have had with weird readings on other repairs.

So, is the resistance I am seeing on the terminals normal?

Not if there were no speakers on it.

Are you sure that you don't have any shorted or leaky output transistors?

Are you sure that the inductor isn't shorted to the board underneath it?

Are you sure that there is no conductive fiberglass?

With the probes clamped into the speaker terminals and reading ~5 ohms, can you move anything on the board that will make the resistance change significantly?

All outputs are good
No conductivity on the fiberglass
When I touch a probe to the part of the board where the fiberglass is melted off, then touch the inductor coil, I read short. No resistance.
No change in resistance when I wiggle or move anything.
