Question about Cutler Hammer 1 Pole 15 Amp Ground Fault
A Cutler-Hammer Ground Fault circuit Breaker Type GFCB - Type HAGF trips each time a load is applied. If the circuit is changed out to a regular (non- ground fault) circuit breaker the load will not cause the circuit breaker to trip. The circuit is for 6 outside receptacles app. 100 feet of 12/2 w/ ground Romex wire.
The most likely causes in their order of probability are: 1) water somewhere in the circuit causing the hot wire to ground; 2) a legitimate trip caused by a defect in a device plugged into the circuit; and 3) a defective GFCI breaker. In the first case, wait until it has been dry for about a week and see if it trips. In the second case, make sure there is nothing plugged into the circuit and try resetting. In the third case go ahead and put the regular breaker in, then put a GFCI outlet into the first box downstream from the breaker. If installed according to the directions, that outlet should protect all of the outlets downstream.
