Circuit Tester

Know if outlets are "live"


Important: When using, be careful not to touch live wires or the metal leads of

the tester. This is not a diagnostic instrument and is not intended to detect a

combination of defects in a wiring circuit. It is a simple tester for detecting the
presence of voltages between 90 and 300 volts. Voltages less than 90 volts may
be present but may not be detected by this device. Any indication of wiring faults

should be referred to a quolified electrician for correction.

How to Test Outlets:
Determine if the circuit is live by inserting

the tester leads into the outlet slots.

Tester will glow if circuit is live.

Check 0 3 SLOT-120VAC grounding outlet
by inserting one lead into the hot

(narrow) slot and the other lead into the

U-shaped ground slot. Tester should
glow. Then test between wide side

(neutral) and "U" shaped (ground). Tester
should NOT glow.

Check a 2-SLOT-120VAC outlet by
inserting one leod into the hot (narrow)

slot and the other into the wide slot.

Tester should glow. To determine hot

wire on 2 wire circuits, insert one probe

into the narrow slot and touch the other
probe to the metal mounting screw or
metal plate. If screw is grounded, tester

will glow. Remaining slot is the neutral.

3 SLOT-240VAC Receptacles: Test for
normal (llOV) glow between round hole

(ground) and either hot side. Note

brighter glow (220V) across both hot


Note: If circuit is properly grounded,

tester will glow with same brightness os
for live circuit. If brightness is less for

ground slot, refer the condition to a
qualified electrician.
