Hello, yes if you would send the picture(s). That would make it easier to help you
ok. So the devices (switch and GFCI) were removed and you need to know how to rewire them?
is there another switch that controls that same light?
Do you happen to have a multi-meter to test voltage and continuity? Is the light down where you can see the wiring in that box?
You mean that light/fan is on it's own breaker?
ok. I'm assuming that in the r/b/w the red is for the light and the black is for the GFCI. That would mean that the whites go together with a wire nut and a pigtail is run from the whites to the GFCI line side "White". Then the black goes to the GFCI Line side "Black". The Red goes on the switch terminal and the black from the left cable goes on the other switch terminal
Twist the grounds all together and cap - and put in two pigtails, one for switch and one for GFCI.
I assume that there is not an open breaker for the red and the black then?
If these will be 2 circuits sharing that neutral then they need to have a 2-pole 15 or 20 amp breaker.
I you just want to use one breaker then you might as well just connect either the red or the black and tape or cap the other one off in the panel and the box
That would mean that in the switch box, the whites go together with a wire nut and a pigtail is run from the whites to the GFCI line side "White". Then the black from the r/b/w goes together with 2 pigtail wires - one for the GFCI Line side "Black" and the other for a terminal on the switch. Then the black from the left cable goes on the other switch terminal. Finally twist the grounds all together and cap - and put in two pigtails, one for switch and one for GFCI.
In the panel you said neutral is connected to neutral bar. So then just connect ground in also and black would go to spare breaker.
It just means add a short section of wire to connect the devices. See the graphic
So put the 2 existing ground wires together with 2 more short sections of wire (pigtails) all under one wire nut and connect the pigtails to the devices
Sure but if you don't need me again. Please don't forget to come back and rate my answer. its the only way I get credit here with JA
Awesome! Glad to help. Thanks for the follow up pic. I always like to see the end result
