Nuheat heating pad continuity


I have a Nuheat underfloor heating being installed.
I checked resistance and continuity before installation .
I had it installed by a contractor. Now I rechecked it after install and
Have the proper resistance. I cannot get my meter to read any continuity.
One lead to the grey ground wires and one to the white lead. My meter does. Ot have a sound alert but I believe it should go fr reading one to zero when testing.
Am I having a brain cramp Have I done something wrong doing the test.

Do you have any other wires than the gray and white

How do the resistance reading compare to what was taken when the mat was right out of the box?

You should be measuring resistance from black to white. And black to gray and white to gray should be open.

I measured resistance using black to white and read 60 ohms which is correct, it's grey to black or white I'm not getting a zero reading as apprised to the 1 reading you get when not testing
