Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Do you have a small digital multimeter? That would be the quickest way to track down the problem here. About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing.
