Hello, My name is ***** ***** i would like to help you with this problem.
Have you ensured that the line and load terminals of the GFCI are correctly terminated. If you feed the load side of a GFCI this is a typical reaction.
and by 30 amp dp connector so you mean 30 amp double pole breaker?
I guess my next question is why a DP contactor is powering a GFCI recepticale and not an HVAC unit or walk in freezer.
Have you checked for continuity between hot/neutral hot/ground?
If you dont have a voltage leak causing the trip logic would point to the contactor
..were you prompted for a call?
wow, i never set that up.. i dont even have it in my chat box
anyway, if the breaker was tripping when it rains, odds are you had water losing the circuit and tripping the breaker. This can be a very small amount of water, to prevent this all outdoor receptacles must have rated weather protection.
My guess is you may have a few issues here.
Nice, i would make sure all new receptacles are wired correctly before i bought a new contactor. But if you are sure they are correct i would go ahead and try the contactor
Good luck! Be safe, and you know where to find me :)
were you able to get that circuit to hold boss?
sounds good. hope it works!
