Over the last few years many answer on here told the person asking the question to check a certain component with a multimeter. This has caused some basic questions. How do I do this? Here is the short description of some of the more common components and how to check those. It will be a basic outline only, not a complete course in electronics.

The introduction in capacitors is intresting, but it misses some practical insights. Do you know that electrolytic capacitors can be inspected visually? The newer versions can be inspected on top. If the top is domed, the capacitor should be replaced. (mind voltage, cap value and polarity) Older versions can be inspected on the bottom. If there are signs of leakage, replace it! It is also good to know (especially for lovers of vintage amplifiers) that capacitors have a lifetime of 20 years. For some high-quality vintage amplifiers (such as Quad 303) uk-based companies provide replacement sets. (solder skills required)
