Question about Electrical Supplies
GFCI tripped in kitchen and now the hot wire is only showing between 2.8v and 4.5v
1) Copy following links:
2) Move hot wire to different, same-amp, circuit breaker and see if problem persists.
Look for loose quick connect on back of each switch and outlet on circuit, including GFCI, replace GFCI.
3) Add comment and say what you find.

Testimonial: "This was great advice, and sniffed right the correct path. It turned out to be a tripped breaker in the sub panel, which feeds the breaker box (or whatever you want to call it) power. Thank you for the quick response; this was confusing one. -jason"

SOURCE: gfci breaker for spa
gfci's are designed to trip if they receive voltage on there ground/neutral side, therefore my vote is for Smithbrother I would say there is probably a partial short somewhere in you system.

You mentioned a 8-3 cable suppling power to the sub-panel. I am assuming you have a 8-3 WITH ground or 4 conductors, black, red, white AND ground.
In the sub-panel do not bond the neutral bar to the box or ground bar. If there is a green bonding screw on the neutral bar...remove it. If you have only one (1) neutral bar add another bar for your grounds and bond this bar to the box. Keep the neutrals isolated from the grounds.
I hope this has helped. If you need additional information please send me a follow-question.

You should not have multiple GFCI devices in any one circuit. Change out the outlet and label it
GFCI Protected if necessary...Your problem of nuisance trips should go away.
