Stumped on GFCI Circuit Breaker
I recently moved in to this house. I have a GFCI circuit breaker in the panel that trips anytime I plug ANY load in to one of the protected outlets. The only thing I can plug in and not trip is is one of those plug in testers to verify wiring is done correctly. Anything else will trip it immediately.
I have tried replacing the GFCI circuit breaker no change. I tracked what I thought were every outlet and all look good. I have disconnected all the outlets except what I thought was the one connected directly to the circuit breaker. No change. Still trips.
This outlet is in the basement almost directly underneath the panel box. The only thing I can think is there must be another defective outlet in between, but I cannot find it.
I am baffled that I cannot find this hidden outlet. Does anyone know an easy way?
