Question about Gb Electrical Gardner Bender GVD-504A Circuit Alert Non-Contact Voltage Tester
I used a Circuit Alert Non-Contact Voltage Tester on them and 3 indicate voltage on both poles of the outlet. The other 3 indicate voltage only on the 'black' or hot pole.
I would start by determining if these 6 outlets are on the same circuit. Also I am usually not too confident in the non contact voltage tester you are using. They tend to give false positives if they contact anything or even if you move them fast. I would invest in an inexpensive multimeter whcih will allow you to test actual voltage across the poles and ground and also check for continuity between poles/ground (WITH CIRCUIT OFF ONLY).
Did these outlets previously work properly?
