GFI Circuit Breaker
Electrical Question: My GFI Circuit Does Not Have Power.
- I have a GFI circuit breaker that some times has power, so I replace it still the same problem I when I replaced the new one (and I purchased the same one at home depot).
- As soon as I snap it in the electrical panel it worked , I checked out an hour later and it had not tripped and I went around and plugged in a radio to all the outlet that it carries, basement, outside plug,and bathroom and no power remember the GFI is not tripped.
- Could there be problem with the bus line in the electrical panel that could not be getting power to it and how could I tell if I pull the GFI breaker off what am I looking for .
