Qucik background info:
I am using a 117 Fluke, brand new bought in 2020 from Amazon.
This is a very simple circuit, but for some reason the resistor keeps heating when I try to use red LED's which are rated at 0.007 Amperes, so I tried to check the current going through the resistor, which caused the problem.
The LED simply goes out, and it won't turn on again. I tested this with a white LED also, same problem.
I can test the LEDs fine, and they show 0.0087 amps, which is fine, but the second I touch the resistor it burns up.
Does anyone have an idea, why this happens?
