Updating switch boxes christian online dating over 50
One set of wires will be the "line," or power supply.The other set will be the "load," which carries power to additional outlets on the same circuit.
Replacing outlets with safer GFCI outlets is a simple project for beginner DIYers to bring their kitchen and bathroom outlets up to code.
One GFCI outlet at the beginning of a circuit protects all the remaining outlets on that circuit. If the circuit breakers aren't labeled, you can locate the proper switch by plugging a radio into the outlet you plan to change. Then place a piece of tape over the switch to make sure no one accidentally turns it back on while you're working on the outlet.
A GFCI outlet, properly installed, will protect all the outlets on the "load" side.
If there are only two insulated wires entering the box this receptacle is at the end of the circuit. Turn the power back off and test the wires with the circuit tester to make sure the power is off.
Connect the power-supply wires to the terminals marked "line" and the load wires to the terminals marked "load." Connect the white wires to the silver screws and the black wires to the brass or gold screws.
