Let me start off by saying, I'm lost lol seriously. Ok I'll try my best to explain my situation here.
I have 5 outlets on a 20 amp breaker with 14/2 wire
All 5 outlets read around .57 to .76 voltage.
I have pulled out each outlet and tested the wires separately and they all read the same around.57 to .76, common sense says that there's a loose wire reducing the voltage or there's a nail in the wall that hit a wire right
OK the outlets have been working fine until today then just all of a sudden I get a loss of power, no recent reconstruction no recent nails, all the wires are tight and the 20 amp breaker has an output of 120 volts
If that doesn't throw you off enough, there's 2 receptacles that only have one wire coming in and nothing coming out, these 2 receptacles are on 2 sperate wall while the other 3 are on one wall beside each other and there's no gfci in the circuit ... what in the mother of Jesus is going on here and why are there two ends in a circuit.
I thought it might be another receptacle throwing all the other off, that's what anybody in the right state of mind would think right, but the breaker only control those 5, I can't help but laugh instead of cry cause its so mind boggling, haha please help so I can have a fridge again :(
3 receptacles on one wall, one has 3 wires coming in and the other 2 receptacles have 2 wires for in and out,
I also thought, hey maybe the breaker is not throwing the current far enough so I switched it with another 20 amp
Please don't say a 12 amp breaker shouldn't be on 14/2 wire cause its against the code... I didn't install the wiring, I'm just trying to fix it
