I am assuming your meter is working correctly, you moved the red lead to the mA jack on the meter, and the fuses are good in the meter. Does the meter zero on the mA and uA scales with nothing connected? If not, does it zero when you short the test leads together?
For the electronically challenged readers:
mA = milliamperes or one thousandth of an ampere
uA = microampere or one millionth of an ampere.
Max leakage current 0.34 mA = ⅓ mA (⅓ OF 1 mA). OR 340 uA
11 mA is 10 ⅔ mA to much. It is 11,000 uA which would overload the 400 uA scale.
Unplug the regulator/rectifier and see if the reading changes.
