Replacing GFI Outlet Leads to Sparks
I was replacing a GFCI receptacle, and the wires were hanging out with power in the travelers, and I had accidentally pushed the travelers together with a flat head screwdriver, so the wires sparked, and now my whole bathroom and bedroom, has no power whats so ever, what can be my problem?
I was thinking because it became a closed circuit when they both touched each other, the breaker burned.
