That points to a faulty, or missing, AC Mains Ground connection. Does the wall outlet you are using have the Ground pins that connect at the sides of the plug like this Type F outlet or does it only engage the two prongs like this Type C outlet?

Also, in your pictures, where are you connecting the other end of your tester?

Does the mondo alway need the ground connection ? Why?

Is this mondo connected ground loop on its metal box?

Is I need to change power cord?

Ah-Ha! You will need to change the power cord to one that has a ground pin on it.
