Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) The key item when connecting a GFCI receptacle is to make sure that you have the LINE and LOAD wires properly terminated and to the GFCI and not reversed.

Let me know if you have any other questions and I will be more than happy to answer them for you.
