Yes I did get voltage reading 120v from each hot wire to ground, but was not able to get a ohm reading from this ground to a nearby standard outlet ground. should I? I will have to get an electrician to look at it.Did you check BOTH Fuses? It looks like there are two of them. I don't have that model so am just passing on my thoughts.
One other thing, are you certain the receptacle has a valid ground? Can you get voltage from each hot wire to the ground wire (not the neutral if present)?
well that confirms it, I did not get 0 ohms ground to ground like I should, but did from ground to neutral. I opened the nearby junction box and it was a butcher job in there. The incoming ground was cut! good news is that the charger maybe be ok!You should get a reading of ~ 0 ohms from ground to ground. If not, one of the outlets is not properly grounded.
On the 110 volt outlet, check for voltage from Hot to ground. Should be ~ 110 Volts.
Also, obviously, it should be ~ 110 Volts from Hot to Neutral.
Absolutely!. You never know what's lying in wait for you in the middle of the night to happen just at that time. Some people shouldn't do electrical work on their home or their car just as some people shouldn't pick up a wrench. I always say, it's not rocker science" just common sense but some times that's at a premium.That would be terrific! You might also be able to just run a ground from the good receptacle to the bad one, although it is best to get that butchered wiring straightened out. Some folks shouldn't do electrical work & it sounds like they were doing it in your junction box.
Good luck with fixing it.
