Testing Your GFCI

Testing Your GFCI
Water and electrical components can be a dangerous combination. Be sure to test your GFCI monthly to be sure it is functioning correctly. A GFCI receptacle can be tested with the built-in test button, which will cause a small ground fault, tripping a properly working device.
    To test your GFCI you should:
    • Push the “reset” button on the GFCI
    • Plug in a light or small appliance (turn on)
    • Push the “test” button – the light or small appliance should turn off
    • Push the “reset” button – the light or small appliance should turn on
    If your GFCI does not function as above you should contact Alight Gas & Electric to have the GFCI checked and repaired.
