    Breaker GFCI AFCI

    Hi Everyone, I have a question regarding GFCI AFCI Breakers in my main panel. I have a Siemens residential household box with QP breakers. I wanted to replace a standard one with a GFCI AFCI Breaker. I noticed that the cable conduit that houses that circuit has a black, red, and white wire...

    Hot Tub GFCI troubleshooting

    I am the homeowner of a hot tub that's been working for well for 6 years. One day the water began to provide a shocking sensation which would prevent you from putting your finger fully into the water. I determined the shock was coming from a 12V light mounted in the tub whose water seal had...

    Add GFCI outlet off single pole switch (source from light)

    Greetings! I've got a single 12/2 wire coming into an outlet box that is connected to a single pole light switch used to control a vanity light. The light is the source in this setup, which I understand is turned on and off due to the interruption of the current via the switch. I'd like to...

    USA GFCI issue

    I have a garage refrigerator that immediately trips GFCI when plugged directly into GFCI. If I use a heavy ext cord it does not trip. If I move fridge to another outlet fed off of a remotely located GFCI, that one does not trip either. It seems to be fridge related. But no issue when more wire...

    GFCI question connecting to 40 amp line

    I am a DIY, but not sure if my current problem is DIY solvable given my limited electrical knowledge. I recently purchased a home that has a 40 amp line that runs to a non-working (always displays fault light) GFCI receptacle in a bathroom and then shares the current with two other bathrooms...

    Domestic Water on electronics, no breaker drops

    Hi everyone, I rented out an outdoor space for a party and they brought a DJ. Unfortunately there was a water pipe that burst and showered the entire party as well as the DJ stand (just my luck). The DJ is now telling me that all of his equipment is fried, laptops, TV, disk players...
