Hi Electrical Experts...
Quick question concerning a GFCI in my kitchen. I was sitting here at my computer doing some work, and I heard a buzzing sound; almost like an alarm clock. Went into the kitchen and my GFCI receptacle was tripped and a litttle bit of smoke coming from it. I reset it, and tested it with a voltmeter. It was okay. This GFCI receptacle only has two other receptacles wired off it. Nothing was plugged into any of them. My house will be two years old in August, so it's new wiring. If anyone can shed some insight on this, or if they've experienced anything like this, and could share a remedy....I'd appreciate it. As it sits, I'm going to switch out the GFCI with a new one. Thanx much!!
