Question about Freezers
I rent an apartment over a restaurant. Today the owner asked me to remove the GFCI outlet that a freezer is plugged into. Her brother told her the freezer quit because the outlet was getting damp due to its location, beside the commercial disheasher. I politely tried to explain this was not legal due to the code, there must be more to the problem than her brother knows. Since I am not family and only have 10 plus years experience in all phases of construction I am assumed wrong. Could you provide the chapter and verse on this code?
This is self explanitory. If the outlet is getting wet, it either needs to trip or go up in smoke. Not very surprizing because most restaurant personel only know that the unit has failed. Don 't care why either. Just fix it. Can't sight chapter and verse but I do know that if the outlet is located within a certain number of feet of a water source, code calls for the GFI. All new homes built in the last 8 to 10 years must have a GFI in the bathrooms and kitchen areas. You may want to point that out.
