I have a single pole light switch with a hot red wire secured at the top and a hot black wire at the bottom. I then have a handful of outlets wired with the metal tab broken separating the hot red and black wires.
However, all of the top and bottom outlets are always hot. The switch isn't doing anything. I tried swapping the switch (on the off chance the receptacle wasn't working) with a different one in the house that is working, but that didn't work either.
What could be causing the switch to not terminate?
