One other possibility for you to look at.. One of the meters in my wifes TFM15 developed the same issue and after close inspection it wasn't the meter at all. The meter was "sticking" due to the back part of the meter had over time come loose and was out of place just enough to interfere with the proper movement of the needle.....

Re: TFM-15cb Meters Repair or Replacement

If your meter is not physically touching anything, you can lubricate meter movements with 1/2 drop of silicon spray stuff to free it up. While you in there feel the IC just below level control knobs see if it gets to hot to touch and check two 2.2k ohm 2W registors and see if they are discolored. These are the main culprits of electrical meter malfunctions. Good luck
