The bigger issue is that you haven't recognized an open neutral as a
safety problem. You clearly have an open neutral, probably at the annex
pannel. Open neutrals are pretty much the scariest, most dangerous
electrical problem you can have in a house. They can result in large
metal appliances, and occasionally even plumbing fixtures, becoming
energized. 120V may show up in some rather unexpected places. It is
also usually easy to fix, especially since it seems to affect one or
more entire circuits. This is a minor troubleshooting job and a major
safety hazard -- two important facts that you have not realized. That
is why you should not be doing it yourself.
