Hi there! I’m trying to sort out what’s going on with my GFCI outlet next to my bathroom sink. When I use an outlet tester it shows that it is “open ground”, but there is a grounding wire behind the outlet. It’s an older GFCI outlet, so there’s no red light/green light on the outlet itself. The outlet works. The test/reset function on the outlet seems to work (I hit test and there’s no power, I hit reset and the power is back, but shows as “open ground”). I’ve read some places that even though it’s “open ground”, because it’s a GFCI it’s okay… but I just don’t want anyone to get electrocuted! So thought I’d try an online forum.
Thanks so much for your help!
