Question about Gb Electrical Electrical Supplies
The Solution posted by jyackle5 is incorrect. If you HAD a problem with a breaker with Hot and Neutral reversed, you'd have the possibility for a short circuit, and it would adversely affect any electronic device plugged into a outlet on that circuit.
Fortunately, you are describing an issue with your test meter.
If you have the leads reversed on your GB (Gardner Bender) meter/tester, it will provide a negative value/number instead of a positive valve in the readout. Depending on the diagnostics you're trying to do and if you're testing voltage or resistance, you should have the correct orientation of the lead.
It's always best to make sure the red and black leads are in the proper jacks for AC or DC Voltage and in the Ohms sockets when taking resisitance measurements. Always start with the higher setting if in doubt about the voltage you're testing and you can go down one setting at a time until you have a good reading.
Hope you find this helpful and best regards!
