So I'm adding some more outlets to my room. It's an old farm house and my room has the wires run in the plastic things you can just stick to the wall. Well I just put two more outlets in on the opposite side of the room and went to wire them into the preexisting wire and came across a problem that I can't quite understand.
I have one wire coming through my wall that gives my room power they ran that to a switch outlet combo. They put the hot wire on the top left white on the top right and then ran a wire of the bottom posts to the rest of the room goes to an outlet and then to my ceiling fan.
From what I've gathered the left side is for the outlet and the right is for the switch so they have 2 blacks to each side of the outlet and then 2 whites to the switch all the power works right and the switch controls the fan but the outlets stay on. how from my thinking if I flip the switch I should lose all the power not just the fan since it cuts the neutral wire right as it comes in and then the outlet if there's a black on each side how does the rest of my room get power wouldn't the circuit have to be closed for the power to continue.
