This one’s got me baffled.
I plugged in my SureTest and had no display (my SureTest works fine). . .
So I plug in my "three-light" tester and get a "reverse polarity" indication. . .
Hmmm. . . ![icon_confused.gif](upload://qv5zppiN69qCk2Y6JzaFYhrff8S.gif)
Next I stick my "voltage tester" in and again, nothing.
I turn the voltage tester, neutral to ground, and get 120 volts
I turn it the other way, hot to ground, and get 120 volts ![icon_confused.gif](upload://qv5zppiN69qCk2Y6JzaFYhrff8S.gif)
The conductors were visible but had all been painted. I couldn't tell neutral from ground from hot.
Anyone care to guess?
