no proper voltage .

One of my power point is not working. Tested with a meter.
Phase to Neutral - 203V AC
Phase to Earth 237V ac

We should have 237V ac between Phase and Neutral.
But Oly this power point has 203V ac between Phase and Neutral.

What could be the fault.
Why I am not getting 230V AC.

Its probably a loose neutral, check your splices and connections. Be sure that they aren't burnt or melted. Tighten them.

Your using a digital meter and probably have a an open neutral. Could be phantom voltage to the neutral.
