Put a tester on your output. Best to do this with you machine connected and running.

Same story, test the voltage with a tester.
What do you mean it'll tell you if it's a circuit?

You need a multi meter, at least that's what they are called here. Test volts, amps, ohms etc.

Can anyone answer what the symptoms are if you suspect your power supply is not giving consistent current?
