IS THE RECEPTICLE A 20 AMP OR 15 AMP

Asked by james September 7, 2018
6
Answers

Do not use a 15A receptacle on a 20A circuit. Think about it like this. If your circuit breaker is rated at 20A and your wiring is #12 (rated for 20A), what is stopping you from drawing 20A through your 15A receptacle? If you draw 20A through a product that's designed and rated for 15A, it will likely burn up and possibly cause a meltdown at the receptacle. The only thing a breaker does is protect the wire from melting its insulation, hence preventing shorts and fires. A GFCI receptacle does not provide ANY overcurrent protection. It detects leakage of current to ground ONLY at or after (downstream of) the GFCI receptacle itself. Think of a GFCI receptacle as "people protection". It sees that path to ground as possibly going through YOU and stops it from happening. Remember to always turn off power to the circuit before beginning your work. And I recommend a cheap GFCI tester (under $10) to make sure the receptacle is wired correctly once you're done. Be safe.

You might have to reset the GFI or you may have to recheck your wire connections. There are hot wires or line wires and Load wires which are the wire going to the next outlet.

If the receptacle has never worked since installation, it may be wired wrong.The power should be hooked to the "Line" side terminals. Also you may need to verify that the black wire is your "hot" wire and that it has not been reversed. If you are certain it is correct, have an electrician check it out. There are a number of possible problems before determining the receptacle is defective.

Answers

yes the gfi needs a single gang box to house it as the Taymac is only a cover and the space under the cover is for cord and plug. you can use an in wall box if you do not mind cutting open your wall or you can probably use a "on the wall" mount housing for the GFGI plug - generally a steel housing box or an outdoor rated plastic receptacle, Then the taymac cover mounts on the plug housing

Quick and easy install. Port protectors are firmly in place and don't fall out. I also like that I can lock the lid down and still have something plugged in. Will be getting more of these for my outdoor outlets.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This 1-Gang Horizontal or Vertical Mount Weatherproof Extra Duty In-Use Cover/GFCI Combo by Taymac is a great outdoor electrical box. I used this to replace a old outdoor box that broke. It was very simple and easy to mount and wire. The screws on the sides of the receptacle make for a no hassle wiring job. Just strip the white and black wires and slip them in the holes and tighten the screws and install the ground wire under it's screw and your done. Being a GFCI receptacle it has the test and reset buttons. The box has a gasket on the back to make a waterproof seal around it. The cover is big enough to be able to close it with a extension or tool in it.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Excellent for intended outdoor use - I have this installed where the water sprinkler can spray water onto it. The cover protects the receptacle, just right. Installation has very simplified instructions, not too fancy, but I did have to struggle with all the screws on this. So, wear gloves in case the screwdriver slips. A great feature is the "bubble" cover - because I have a mini-transformer plugged in. The cover is big enough to cover it and be closed. Also, there is a removable piece on the bottom to drop your cord. The reset and test buttons are just right, even with the mini-transformer over them - I don't push the mini transformer/plug on too hard and it is good enough.

I am embarrassed to have installed this. I just needed an outdoor weatherproof cover. This also comes with GFCI receptacle which I did not need. I bought it anyway for the cover. My main issue with the cover is that it is not sturdy. The whole front cover shakes. Feels like a toy. I highly recommend this alternative product from Leviton (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Leviton-Decora-GFCI-1-Gang-Extra-Heavy-Duty-Raintight-While-In-Use-Device-Mount-Horizontal-Cover-with-Lid-Gray-5981-UGY/301940682) which I have installed and is much sturdier. Probably why the review are much better on the Leviton product.
