Signs that a Bathroom GFCI Outlet May Need to be Replaced
- When there is a problem that is happening with just one GFCI outlet then it may be time to replace that GFI with a new one.
- GFI outlets can wear out and go bad without warning and the most obvious indication is that it will not RESET.
- The GFI TEST Button should be checked frequently as well, because another indication that the GFI outlet is bad is when it stays ON all the time and will not trip OFF – and that is dangerous!
