Switched circuit for a garbage disposal that has never been installed. I intended to use it for under cabinet LED
lighting, but I am getting confusing readings at the single pole switch
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Today. It was wired previously with a single pole switch.. Switch OFF: 120V hot to ground, 120 V neutral to ground, 74 V hot to neutral
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: It WAS a simple wiring
job until I got unexpected readings on the existing circuit.
JA: How old is the system in question? And have you consulted an electrician yet?
Customer: Home built in 2004. I checked main panel. I have 120V between breaker load side (BLACK) and neutral bar
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: SWITCH ON: I get 120 V neutral to ground, 0 V hot to ground and 120 V neutral to hot
