Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
What is the make and model of the surge strip? That is extremely odd, there should be no power on the neutral wire.
Sounds like the internals have failed, would like to see which model it is and get the specs.
I tried the surge protector strip on another work bench & it did not happen...
What do you mean on another work bench? How is the strip being used?
I am plugging the surge protector into a power strip on a work bench...& then I am plucking my components into the surge protector.
Ok, when you read voltage on the neutral, what was plugged into the strip?
Any motors or items with a capacitor?
Have you measured the strip on the bench for miswiring?
I would test when power is on the strip and on the work bench strip also: Hot to neutral,hot to ground and neutral to ground
I should get ( on the surge protector) hot to neutral= 120 ...Hot to ground =0 & neutral to ground = 120...is this correct...
no, hot to neutral 120, hot to ground 120, neutral to ground 0
same for the bench strip
You are the man!!! The work bench that I am working on is wired in reverse...all the other ones are correct!! I will give you a five!!!!!!
Ok, you know the strip is good at least. You are most welcome, glad to assist
