What’s the cause and fix on an outdoor outlet to read 120v from hot to ground and hot to neutral but provides no power. I thought maybe an open neutral somewhere albut Plug in tester shows good.

I’ve proven the breaker and outlet are good.

It’s a single buried line running from the house to an outlet that feeds a septic pump.

to add to the mystery - the led lights on the plug in tester light up but even the smallest wattage light plugged in doesn’t light up. I even hooked the light up directly to the wires to for sure isolate the outlet. No change.

only thing I can think of is a “barely” open neutral.

If so, how do I isolate where the break is.
