I currently work as a Maintenance Manager and was completing a stress test in a house today. Noted that the GFCI circuit in the kitchen was not disabled through a GFCI receptacle but passed straight through to the breaker in service panel. Breaker is a GFCI and tripped when tested through receptacles. The problem with this configuration in this particular unit, is the service panel is located in a locked owners closet. Florida…
- Is there any code requirement stating the receptacles in the kitchen should trigger a GFCI receptacle or is it approved to have the breaker act as the GFCI?
- Can a breaker panel be located in a locked room such as an owners closet?
Currently working through the Electrical module for home inspection
