an outlet on the ceiling of the garage has the auto. door opener plugged into it…there is one remaining receptacle. This outlet is not GFCI. Does it need to be? I would think that since it’s not dedicated to the opener and there is another receptacle that someone could plug something into and run it outside, that it should be GFCI.
a ceiling fan with lights. there are 3 light receptacles…only one light bulb was installed and the bulb did not go on when i hit the switch. Report it and tell them to test it with new bulbs or is this just being petty since it’s a ceiling fan and could be removed anyway.
(2) Garages, and also accessory buildings that have a floor
located at or below grade level not intended as habitable
rooms and limited to storage areas, work areas,
and areas of similar use
*Exception No. 1: Receptacles that are not readily accessible.
Exception No. 2: A single receptacle or a duplex receptacle
for two appliances located within dedicated space for
each appliance that, in normal use, is not easily moved
from one place to another and that is cord-and-plug connected
in accordance with 400.7(A)(6), (A)(7), or (A)(8).
Note: Even IF the garage is not considered a habitable location it still DOES require a switched lighting outlet.
This INFO is for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY- NOT A REPORT !
The only compelling argument I have heard for making this a single is if you don’t it is a very attractive place to plug a drop light into.
If you really wanted to be safe you would just put it on the GFCI.
