Wiring fan switch to the load side of GFCI outlet question.
An HVAC contractor installed an exhaust fan right above the tub in my master bathroom. He did not make the fan protected by GFCI circuit. I aked him to wire the fan switch to the load side of the GFCI outlet. Finally he came back today and did the work. It took him 2 hours.
Now when I run test on the GFCI outlet. The fan's electricity goes out. That's right. But I found my master bedroom's electricity also goes out!! When I reset the GFCI outlet, all the electricity in the master bathroom and bedroom comes back. I had expected that the GFCI outlet testing can only make the electricity in the masterbathroom go out instead of also the master bedroom.
I can live with it. But I am just curious if this is the normal result after the exhaust fan being wired from the load side of the GFCI outlet.
Thank you very much.
