What does open hot outlet mean?

Home Alliance Tech Expert

An 'open hot' reading on your outlet tester means the wire that should have power doesn't have any. If this happens, there could be a few reasons why. Perhaps the outlet is connected to a switch that's turned off. But if not, or if it is and the switch is set to 'on,' something has interrupted the flow of electricity somewhere along the line. And this can create fire hazards, so it's best to get an electrician to take care of it as soon as possible.
