Switch controlled receptacle stop working
I have a 3 year old home. In my bedroom, I have a switch that controls the two upper half portions of the receptacles on both sides of my bed. Everything worked fine when I purchased the home. About a year ago I installed a ceiling fan in my bedroom, not long after that installation I realized that my switch controlled receptacles didn't work.
I tested the voltage and get 83 volts. I've completed some troubleshooting. I get 120 volts to the hot side of receptacle when I go from hot to ground. I only get the 83 volts when I go from hot to neutral.
I checked the main circuit breaker that feeds the master bedroom, it is a GFCI circuit that seem to be functioning properly.
Do you think in installing the ceiling fan I misconnected the neutral causing this issue?
If so, should I take down the fan and see if that where my troubles started?
I'm thinking that there is a cause and effect here and I was it.
Any help would be appreciated.
Your troubles probably started where you picked up the power for the fan.
You need to describe exactly what you did to install this fan.
