Gfci

HELP!!!!!!!!!!


The GFCI in my bathroom tripped and will not reset. I pulled it out and checked the wiring with a voltmeter and found 115 volts between hot (black) and ground. 15 volts between black (hot) and white (neutral). Is this correct?

Did you test between the black and white on the line side of the gfci? If so then you have a bad connection somewhere between there and the panel. Did you have something plugged in when it tripped?

I didn't have anything plugged in. My wife tried to run the blowdryer and it didn't work. It's been raining a lot but thats the only circuit that is down.

Sounds like an open neutral. This is usually a failed backstab connection of a white wire, somewhere (anywhere) on the circuit. Probably has nothing to do with GFCI.
