I have some receptacles on a single circuit that are split (broke the
tab on the hot side) and the top halves of each receptacle are
switched (lower halves are constant hot). I ran 12/3 wire between the
receptacles, so the red wire is my switched hot, my black wire is the
constant hot, and my neutrals are spliced together at each receptacle.
When I measure the voltage coming out of the bottom halves of the
receptacles (constant hot), I get the expected 120V. On the top
halves (switched halves), however, I get the expected 120V when the
switch is ON, but I'm getting 53V when the switch is OFF (measuring
between the hot and ground wires-- get the same reading between the
hot and neutral wires).
Have I misconnected something?
