    The top of the GFCI outlet is the LINE side and the bottom the LOAD side. Assume all the grounds are wired properly. I didn't want to over crowd the diagram. I want to make sure the bottom two outlets will be GFCI protected by the top outlet. I want to make sure the bottom 2 outlets can be...

    Hey All! I can't for the life of me figure this one out. A 2-Pole Eaton AFCI breaker, supporting a MWBC, that has been installed for ~ a year has suddenly started tripping consistently. One leg of the MWBC has a Garage Door Opener, two Lutron Caseta/RA2 Dimmers, three non-dimmer Lutron...

    Hopefully I can explain this without confusing you all. Today I went on a service call to a deli. The meat slicer is tripping the GFCI's on the counter. One gfci was circuit 7 (which was a solo homerun back to the panel) and the other was circuit 5 (which was one gfci and one outlet protected by...
  5. NEC Code Forum
    I get into this discussion every now and then with other electricians: Some say that as of NEC 2014, a grounding type receptacle in non-grounded receptacle location no longer needs to be GFCI protected in dwelling units; they say that AFCI protection is adequate. How does one come to that...

    I have a dual GFCI outlet mounted in the wall of my garage. We are going to put a used refrigerator/freezer in the garage but I will need to add a power strip to power it. Will any power strip do or are there power strips made that will accommodate the safety feature of the GFCI wall outlet.

    I’m trouble shooting a hot tub GFCI disconnect that keeps tripping. After I checked all the connections from the disconnect to the hot tub and everything looks hooked up properly. If I turn the disconnect on without a load hooked up to it, the GFCI trips. I tried doing it with the lines...

    Hey All, New to the forum. I am doing some volunteer work for the Am Legion and re-doing their outdoor meter and panel for a memorial they have. On the panel they currently have some LV lighting on a mechanical timer and a 120V irrigation system controller. Do all of these loads need to be GFCI...

    I’m putting in a GFCI outlet to power my sump pump and the NEC rules state the outlet should be easily accessible. If someone had to crawl under hvac material to access it then it would be in breach. My pump,which is located in the crawl space, is far enough away that the outlet would have to...

    Hey everyone, New to the forum, but not to DIY. Pretty handy with most things (cars, general carpentry, DIY around the house, etc), but not afraid to ask for help when I need it and for this project wanted to consult some of the experts so I get it right the first time since it'll be a pain to...

    We are installing 2, 600V 3 phase submersible pumps on a large pond to assist in aeration of a pond. Our engineer is stating that CEC 26-956(1)(d) says we need to protect the pump with a GFCI. I am having problems sourcing a 600V 3phase 40A GFCI. The pond is airside, restricted entry, and...

    Hello evenryone! I encountered some issue during gfci installation and appreciate any input from you. Thank you very much! I bought 30 or 40 gfci and afci and the ones both with gfci and afci to rewire the whole house. I have an experienced electrician who replaced everything for me. But during...

    Hi, I have 2 outlets in my garage. The first one has a GFCI outlet and the second one doesn't. They both stopped working, so I took the GFCI out and noticed that it has a black spot by one of the terminal. I replaced it, and it works as long as I don't connect the outlet that is down the...

    I have a larger 2 level residential shed (24'x40). There are 2 commercial type ceiling fans fans installed on a 15A circuit. 1 fan is on ground level, 2nd fan is on second floor. Each fan has its own speed control that was supplied by the fan manufacturer. When the fans are turned off, the GFCI...

    I have a finished basement with a bathroom. I am looking to install an additional light over the shower/tub area with its own switch/outlet. Since its a bathroom, I assume I have to put in a GFCI outlet of some kind. Luckily, the wall where I want to install this switch/outlet is adjacent to...

    Good day, I am doing some wiring as a homeowner and have a question about sharing neutral lines. I have attached a diagram for more information. I would like to put in GFCI breakers to service the exterior outlets of my home and one kitchen outlet. As it is currently wired, the single...

    I'm adding a GFCI receptacle on the outside of a house in Canada. This one will be right by the panel in the basement so it will have its own dedicated circuit. I was going to drill a hole in the footing from the outside, run my cable and then Hilti the weatherproof box onto the footing over...

    This one got me thinking about how it can possibly be done, i'm a bit new to electrical, this is just a bit more complicated than usual so I figured it'd take a pro to answer this.. I have a dishwasher and garbage disposal on what looks like a 20A dual pole circuit breaker (both are switch...
