Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. You are having an issue with your power supply from your house. There should be 120 VAC across the middle to each outer leg, and 240VAC between the 2 outer legs at the cord. You have an issue with your power. Turn the breaker off and inspect the outlet for burnt or loose wires.
