Took an extension cord plugged it into another outlet. tested between its neutral and ground to the hot of the bad outlet and got 120 volts between them. The ground and neutral are missing from the bad outlet. See this is why you use a non contact meter I could have electrocuted myself if I didn’t use it.

This is why they make these tools, for idiots like me not to kill myself. Don’t down play this tool it is an easy way test for power. I surely don’t take the non contact meter for an end all for sure but it did its job this time. There was definitely power there just needed to find it. As in most cases one tool isn’t an end all to the problem. You can’t call a pro every time you have a problem.

Thanks Jents,
