Q:Does it check the continuity when theres is no power in outlet?

Answer This Question

A:  The tester will only display when current is present, but will id correct wiring vs common mistakes (hot and neutral reversed-etc). It will not test continuity from the receptacle back to the panel box with no power.

A:  No it does not check continuity, neither if the electricity is on or off.

by|May 18, 2021

    A:  No, it never checks continuity. It checks that power is correctly reaching the terminals of a receptacle. It has no batteries and works by illuminating lights. No power, no lights.

      A:  No, it only works with a powered outlet.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Your question indicates that you are putting your health and possibly your life at risk working on house wiring. Open neutral means that between the wide slot of a grounded receptacle and the neutral bus of the breaker panel, the white wire isn't connected. Shut off the house power. Look at the the screws and check the copper of the white wire(s) is tightly held under those screws. Check the receptacle to cracks. See if the wires all look like they have good plastic insulation all the way to under the screw heads. If the receptacle is discolored or cracked, the screws pitted or discolored, replace the receptacle. If the receptacle, the connection and the wires look good, the break is somewhere else. Without proper tools and experience you could spend days trying to find what a competent electrician could find in an hour.

          A:  It means your neutral connection in the circuit somewhere is not properly connected. It may not be at the outlet, it may be at the circuit breaker panel. I suggest you have an electrician look at it. We cannot give that kind of advice.

              Great Value for a basic receptacle tester! I also use them in power strips to confirm that they are either on or off at a glance-you can get 3 of these for the same cost as 1 or 2 others.

                    PRICE POINT - This is a home gamer tool. EVERY home should have an AC tester. Most of the issues I have with residential outlets are reversed neutral and hot. This will show you if your outlets is wired correctly and if it has a ground. I keep these to give to friends that ask me about electrical problems. This is not a tool you will use daily and last for years. But it is a tool that works for the intended purpose.
