I was helping out a Pastor in Southern Florida. His clothes dryer wasn't working and a tech(?) from GE told him it was a breaker problem because There was 120 VAC from one hot to Neutral and only 57 VAC from the hot to Neutral.

So he calls an electrician who comes out and checks the breaker, no problem. The sparky than takes off the faceplate at the outlet and quickly solves the problem. No mice or vermin of any type. Some super moron spliced one side of the receptacle correctly, but used an Alligator clip to splice the other side. I really wonder what people are thinking at times.

I also suggested that all wiring be checked for other safety issues and to say some extra prayers that they still had a church to worship in.
