    Q:Why is this not a NEMA rated outlet and does that mean it's not safe ?
    by|Mar 20, 2022

    Answer This Question

    A:  This is NEMA 5-15R which means that it's a receptacle that you can plug in a 15A, 125V "normal" plug into. NEMA configuration is a specification for the shape of the plug or receptacle. It has nothing to do with safety. For safety, look for a UL listing.

      A:  Good question, I didn't know the answer to the NEMA question. I've used these on many homes. They work as intended

        A:  Nema rating is for when you are dealing with weather, liquid, corrosion or chemicals. This is just your basic indoor GFI.

          Answer This Question

          A:  I don’t see why not, but before you do do anything you should check with a licensed electrician to check your existing wiring especially if it’s in an older house.

          by|May 11, 2022

          A:  If you are replacing a switch with the outlet, then no. If you are controlling the outlet with a switch, then yes.

          by|Feb 16, 2021

            A:  Sure, I don't know why not.

            Q:After installing several of these outlets they each seem to emit a high pitched hum or tone. You have to be pretty close to the receptacle to hear it. Is this normal? Anyone else experience this phenomena?

            A:  I have neither heard of this or experienced this yet. I would suggest you contact the manufacturer with this question. You can get General Technical Support Assistance at Leviton at this number: 1-800-824-3005. I think you want Option 5. Please share your answers with us.

            A:  Mine emits a very, very faint buzz but you need to place your ear almost upon it. Otherwise, they are silent. If you are hearing an audible high pitched hum, then you should recheck the wiring. Check a protected outlet downstream of the AFCI/GFCI outlet for power. If it's powered up, then go back to the AFCI/GFCI outlet and cycle it through a Test and Reset. If it doesn't trip when you press Test then shut off the power and check the wiring.. Make sure that the wires coming from your electric panel are on the proper Line/Load lugs of the AFCI/GFCI outlet. Likewise, make sure the Line//Load wires leaving the outlet and delivering power to the rest of the branch circuit are on the correct lugs. Refer to the Leviton drawing in the link below. I believe it's possible to generate an audible buzz if wired incorrectly. https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/e7/e75a73cd-9a41-4551-baff-29501739ef8b.pdf

              A:  I have three installed and do not have any high pitched hum or tone. After reading this I when over to the outlet and put my ear to the outlet and heard nothing. You could have a bad one or batch? Call the company for a solution.

              A:  I'm usually sensitive to noisy electronics and I have not noticed any sound from these. It's possible that they're interacting with something else in your house which is producing interference to make them ring. You could try turning everything else off to see if that is the cause.

              Q:Will this AFCI/GFCI outlet restore power to the receptacles after a power outage is restored? Need it to auto restore power.

              A:  If your outage is a utility outage you shouldn't have to do anything once the power comes back on. It would be rare for this dual function device to trip unless the outage is due to a nearby lightning strike.

              A:  No, all the dimensions provided in the specifications are all wrong. The actual depth as measured from the yoke is 1.27". I found the actual dimensions in the product brochure.

              A:  No - but it DOES require a 3.5" minimum depth outlet box. or larger.

              A:  I'm not sure what product description you saw because the one on the home depot site says it's 1.3 inches, which mine was. The height described on the site is 4.2 inches which I'm sure includes from the top of the bracket to the bottom. Hope this helped. I had no problem with the one I purchased, simple replacement, didn't have to modify the outlet at all.

              Q:Would wiring this on a circuit used to feed a dishwasher and garbage disposal create any cause for concern?

              Answer This Question

              A:  The only concern I can think of is where would this device be located? This dual function device cannot be split wired under the kitchen sink like a typical duplex receptacle has been used for decades. Seems this would be a good application for a dual function circuit breaker rather than this dual function receptacle.

              A:  BruceB, I am an electrician, you cannot have a GFI for a dishwasher or garbage disposal, it needs to be readily accessible.

                Q:Does this offer surge protection as well?
                by|Aug 27, 2020

                Answer This Question

                A:  No this product does not offer surge protection. It does however offer lots of frustration if you happen to install one that is defective and trips on a circuit that has no faults. If you need to add AFCI and/or GFCI protection your best bet for reliable protection is a dual function AFCI/GFCI circuit breaker. The Leviton Dual Function Outlets are, from my experience, absolute junk. I've installed hundreds, perhaps thousands of GFCI receptacles in my career and I've had the highest rate of problems with Leviton devices by far. I do not recommend.

                  A:  Yes, it does, when the downstream conductors are connected to the "Load" terminals of the device on either a 15 or 20 amp circuit. This device is rated at 20 amp feed-thru for when used on a 20 amp circuit.
