Why do I get 88 volts from hot to neutral, and neutral to gnd shows 26 volts. Hot to gnd shows 120 volts.

This is for a motor.
cause 115 -88 = 26 (+/- 1 volt accuracy of your meter)

Can't find the panel. Some random box that was supplying power to a fan motor. How does the motor run when hot to neutral is only 26 volts?
What did your Journeyman say?
Or is this a home work question?

Why don't you post the whole question.
It would make an answer easier to explain.
