I plugged a 30 amp power supply cord from an rv to a 15 amp house outlet to run a/c to rv . gfci tripped and wont reset. damaged gfci or something else?


A GFI outlet works independently of sensing an overload condition. Overloads are dealt with by the circuit breaker or fuse in your electrical panel. The GFI simply compares the current on the hot terminal (black or red wire) with the current on the neutral terminal (white or gray wire) and interrupts the current if there is more than 5mA (0.005 Amps) difference between the two.

Remove the load - in this case the RV plug - from the GFI outlet and attempt a reset. Make sure you're pressing the RESET button and not the TEST button. If it resets - you're all set. Reconnect the RV plug to a different outlet - preferably NOT a GFI type.

If it still wont reset, it is important to know that GFI outlets can be wired in such a way that any circuit extended to other outlets (lights, too) via the LOAD terminal screws will also be protected by the GFI. We need to be sure that there wasn't something else causing the fault. Check other nearby outlets for functionality. Remove plugs from any outlet found not working and attempt to reset again.

If it will not reset - it is possible that the internal sensing circuitry has been damaged due to such a large amount of current trying to pass. In this case, replacing the GFI outlet will be needed.

Why did my treadmill stop abruptly while in use?


Your assumption is correct, if you have a household circuit breaker popping, you have a short or over current situation. If you have too many other things plugged into the same circuit you could be overloading that breaker. Depending on how your home is wired, you could have a few (older homes may have quite a few) outlets feed by a single breaker. If you have used the treadmill in that outlet (with the same items plugged into that circuit), the breaker it's self MIGHT be going bad (popping at too low of current).

For safety, inspect the power cord, for any damage, and be replaced if there is any.

If the power core is undamaged, I would try plugging the treadmill in another circuit. Choose an outlet that was not affected when the breaker popped. It you use an extension cord to get to another outlet, be sure it's rated for enough current. If it still pops the same breaker it's the same circuit, and you need to plug it in somewhere else (probably in another room). If a different breaker pops, then the short in in your treadmill. At this point you will need to know something about electricity to further isolate the short.

No power to two outlets other two work in the room on the same grid circuit box isn't tripping


There is a possibility that the two outlets that are not working are on the lower end of that particular circuit. If that is the case, there is also a big possibility that the connections on one of the working outlets is not transferring the current to the other two that are not working. Suggest you verify that the the connections feeding current on down the circuit line are tight and well connected. Hope this works. For safety sake, ensure that the breaker for that circuit is turned off before you start fiddeling arown with the connections. Good Luck.

Circuit tester when plugged into 3 pronged plug, comes up with 2 green lights and 1 yellow light. There is no code on other side of tester to access this problem


Circuit analyzer does not show all possible problems, and tester might be defective.
Use analyzer on other outlets.
Buy another circuit analyzer.
Buy a multimeter at local hardware, and test for voltage, and continuity, and compare with known outlet that are functioning correctly.
For example outlet may be 240Volt instead of 120V.
Copy following links to see typical circuit analyzer and code:

What is wrong when you install a GFI outlet and the green light in the corner goes on than goes right back off than when you try and plug something in the outlet it doesn't have power?


It means that the outlet has tripped. There are one of three problems which you can check. 1. The outlet was wired wrong. On many new GFCI receptacles if the wiring is incorrect the receptacle will trip and not allow you to use it. Proper wiring methods can be found by searching in your search bar "how to wire a gfci". It is possible that what was plugged in went over the amp rating of the GFCI. causing it to trip (note: not as likely as your main circuit breaker would have tripped first). The only other things, which has happened to me a lot is the outlet can be super sensitive to current change. GFCI measure high and quick rises in current. If it is too sensitive to the rise in current the receptacle will trip. In this case it will need replacement, and the store will exchange it for you free of charge.

Trying to change fuse in wii but need to know where to find it


Is your Wii just not turning on, no indicator lights? No red, yellow, or green, and pressing buttons doesn't work? Try re-setting the AC adapter.

If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

Hi..

To diagnose your solution you need to check this steps that i can provide you
  1. Check that the washer is plugged in securely
  2. Check the circuit breaker of fuse box. "A circuit breaker provides protection for each of your electrical circuits by stopping the flow of current if an overload or fault occurs. When an electrical fault occurs or the load on your circuit becomes too great, the breaker on that circuit trips and interrupts the flow of current to that circuit. A tripped circuit breaker is still sometimes referred to as a "blown fuse" in reference to the older technology that circuit breakers replaced. If your home uses an actual fuse and not a circuit breaker."
  3. Test the outlet for current. You can test an outlet to determine if current can flow with a voltage tester. Always test your test equipment for proper operation before use. If you don't have a voltage tester, simply use a shop light or other convenient electrical device. Start by making sure the tester is working and plug it into a circuit you know is working. Note that if you need to test a 220V outlet, these instructions do not cover that test.

If there is no voltage, make certain that the outlet isn't controlled by a switch. Try all nearby switches and check whether the tester lights up.
If you are troubleshooting an outlet that isn't working, some possibilities include:
  • The fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped. Click on the following links for more information on replacing fuses and resetting circuit breaker.
  • The outlet may be in a circuit with a GFCI outlet (ground fault circuit interrupt). If the GFCI outlet has tripped, it may cause other outlets on the same circuit to lose current. Look for an outlet that has a "Test" and "Reset" button. They are often located near water such as in a bathroom or kitchen. If the outlet has been tripped, unplug anything that may have caused the fault and then press the "Reset" button.
  • A wire connection has become loose. A wiring fault can occur in many places, the most common include the outlet box, another outlet or junction box the wire passes through or at the circuit breaker.
  • Outlets can wear out, a replacement may be needed.
4. Check that the water supply valves are turned on
5. Inspect the filter screen.
6. Test for overheating
7. Test the water level switch
8. Test the timer control
9. Test the lid switch
10.Test the water inlet valve


Good luck !!!

I,m wiring an outlet in the garage to plug my honda 3000 into , to power a few circuits in the house. How many amp circuit can I run with a Honda 3000? Thanks RJ


On your sump pump, there is something called a nameplate which lists model number, serial number, manufacturer, and power requirements. The power can either be listed in watts directly, or in amps (at 120v). Also click on this web page and You will be able to figure it out. http://www.donrowe.com/inverters/usage_chart.html Hope that answers Your question.

Television won't turn on. The standby light is out and the tv is just dead


Check the outlet. If you plug a lamp into the same outlet and it doesn't work, you have no power there (reset the circuit breaker or call an electrician).

If the lamp does work, look for a circuit breaker on the back of the TV - it's usually a red or brown rod (about half as thick as a pencil and less than an inch long) sticking out. Press it in. If that fixes it, fine. If it keeps happening, take it to a repair shop - something is wrong inside an, since it's plugged into the wall (lots of electricity available), it could cause a fire.

If there's power to the outlet and no circuit breaker (or pushing it in doesn't help) you'll need a repair shop. (With the current repair prices and the current prices for TV sets, it may be cheaper to buy a new one. Shop around.)
