That's exactly what I'm looking for. In another reply by Bert, quote, "MOT
current limiting for consumer-grade ovens is designed to limit the fault
current during abnormal transient arcing conditions". unquote.
Always good to check here first!
Now I have a procedure to follow. Excellent!

The best way to measure a MOT is by feeding 120V or 240V (depending on MOT)
into the secondary. The primary should be around 5 to 6 Volts output. Then
you take 120V or measured mains voltage and divide by primary Volts.
_____ = 20:1 transformer or 2400 VAC
......then once your done that step use the mA current setting to measure
output current on the primary. This will tell you what sort of drawing rate
the transformer has.
