I installed a GFCI outlet in a bathroom last night to replace an old duplex outlet. After I finished, I tried the Test button, but was not able to reset it. I could reset it only when I killed the power to the circuit, however, the outlet tripped again as soon as I turned the power back on. Also all the outlets “downstream” did not work. However, the GFCI outlet did work. I thought the device might be faulty, so I tried another and got the same result. Everything worked before and I was very careful to install it correctly. Any ideas?
It is imperative for someone at the end of an HVAC installation to commission the job to ensure the efficiency of the system.
