Introduction. OSHA 1910.399 defines a ground fault circuit interrupter, or GFCI, as "a device whose function is to interrupt the electric circuit to load when a fault current to ground exceeds some predetermined value, that is less than that required to operate the over-current protective device... the system. The toroidal transformer detects this current and generates a signal in response that feeds to a highly sensitive electromagnetic relay. The relay mechanically actuates the tripping mechanism thereby instantaneously isolating the supply system. The National Electrical Code demands GFCI...

...questions and to take on the recommended fixes. Our hair-dryer evaluation might proceed as follows: The first item on our list, dropping the unit in water, has already been addressed by the industry. Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) at the plug end of the electric cord guard the user against...

...are functioning. If not, the surge protector might be to blame. Another likely culprit is a faulty wall outlet. Plug your computer directly into the outlet, sans surge protector. Ensure that the GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) hasn t been tripped. If your PC still won t turn on, plug something...
