Frequently Asked Questions About Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters
Ground fault circuit interruptors (GFCIs) first saw use in the 1970s. Since then, they have saved thousands of lives from accidental electrocution.
What is the purpose of GFCIs?
How do GFCIs work?
Can I install GFCIs myself?
How do I know my GFCIs are working?
1. Push the “reset” button in on the GFCI.
2. Plug a light into the GFCI and turn it ON. The light should now be on.
3. Push the “test” button of the GFCI. The light should turn OFF.
4. Push the “reset” button again. The light should now go ON again.
If the light does not turn off when the “test” button is pushed, the GFCI is not working properly and it should be serviced by a licensed electrician.
