Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  Mike G. replied 1 year ago.

In order to troubleshoot the problem you'll need to make a few tests. Without a tester there isn't anything that can be done. Testers are available at any home center for under $20.00. Get one and we can continue.
