There's some pretty good procedures in the manual on how to test them. That's what I'd use.

It is very easy -use an ohm meter connect the 2 wires one way then reverse them .You should only get a reading one way. Remember a diode is like a one way valve for electricity (kinda like a check valve for liquid)electricity can flow in one direction & not the other.I hope this helps.
