I have two outlets in our kitchen, one on either side of the sink, where only the top plugs work. I've tried to do some trouble shooting and here is what I know:
- There is a red, white, black, and ground wire on both.
- The tabs are broken on the hot side (the side with the black and ride wire)
- They are run off two breakers on the breaker panel that are tied together
- I checked the panel with my multimeter and both wires at the breaker (red and black) give a reading of ~120v
I'm not sure how to troubleshoot further to figure out what's failing. It's an old house so I'm chalking it up to age.
