In this diagram multiple ground fault circuit interrupter receptacles are wired together using pigtails. Two-conductor cable is run between gfci’s, and the hot, neutral and ground wires from the source are spliced to the line terminals at each device. The load terminals are not used and each device provides its own, single-location protection.
In this diagram wall outlets are wired in a row using the terminal screws to pass voltage from one receptacle to the next. In this diagram, multiple receptacles are connected together using the device, instead of a pigtail splice as shown in the next diagram. Using this method, any break or malfunction at one outlet will likely cause all outlets that follow to fail as well.
In this diagram, a light switch and receptacle are wired in the same box. Both devices are spliced to the same hot source and the neutral to the neutral on the receptacle, and through to the light fixture located in a separate box.
This diagram illustrates the wiring for a circuit with gfci receptacles followed by an unprotected light and switch. The light switch is connected directly to the source and the load terminals on the gfci are not used.
The hot wire to the fan in a fan/light kit will usually be black and the light wire will be blue. The white wire is usually the neutral which is always connected directly to the source neutral, either at the source or through a splice in the switch box. The white wire may also be used to carry current when necessary.
This page contains wiring diagrams for a ground fault circuit interrupter (gfci) with a built in switch. This device can be used to protect a garbage disposal and provide a gfci protected receptacle in a single gang outlet box. The switch can be included in the protected circuit or it can be used to control an unprotected light or other fixture.
This page contains several diagrams for 2 or more receptacle outlets in one circuit. Wiring for multiple ground fault circuit interrupters (gfci) and standard duplex receptacles are included with protected and non-protected arrangements.
This page contains wiring diagrams for two outlets in one box. Included are arrangements for 2 receptacles in one box, a switch and receptacle outlet in one box, and 2 switches in the same box. In this diagram, two duplex receptacle outlets are wired using pigtails spliced to connect the terminals of each to the source wires.
