GFI on a 3-way circuit?
Well the light works fine, but my circuit tester says my GFCIs have an open ground. By my thinking, I should have two potential grounds since this is a 3-way circuit. What I'm wondering though is do I actually have a problem with my nuetral since I'm trying to get power from a 3-way circuit. Also, can I fix my problem by just eliminating one of the swithces on my 3-way circuit?
I'm not pluggin the anything into a circuit that's not properly grounded, especially something that combine water AND electricity.
I appreciate any help, and do have most basic test equipment (circuit tester, voltmeter, etc.)
Just had another thought.. Some circuit testers might give "open ground" readings on GFI outlets because of the difference between them and "regular" outlets. Just for fun, try replacing temporarily with a "regular" outlet and see if it reads "open ground" with that tester.
