Information was very helpful - after hours of trying to back into a solution, it turned out to be the extension cord. So much wasted time!
But, I have another problem which I am hoping you can help with...
I have an outlet that has a switch for the lights (on the top) and a 110 plug (on the bottom). The switch works the light - no problem. But, when the 110 plug isn't working - tried a fan, a 110-light, nothing.
Their is one electrical feed into the outlet - that feeds both the switch and the plug. Cannot figure out why the switch would work, but the plug would not. It is the same feed, into the same outlet??? If the switch works the light, then shouldn't the plug also work given their are from the same feed?
