In my Attic I a have an outlet, junction box that goes to Two ceiling Fans that are not working and a pull string mounted light.I used a voltage tester one all three(outlet, junction box, and light) there is no power to any of them. Can any one help troubleshoot for me?
Most circuits are wired as strings, from outlet to outlet to outlet in a line. (An outlet is a receptacle or a hardwired load). Sometimes they are wired in a tee or tree arrangement, but the same basic idea applies.
Let's say the circuit is a string, PANEL - V - W - X - Y - Z.
Let's say X and everything past it (Y and Z) lose power, and W is the last outlet that is still good. It is usually a faulty wire termination or damaged device at X or W.
People often overlook the importance of the location before, W.
