Self Grounding Receptacle

Hi, are most of the 15A receptacles (duplex) that we buy in bulk from the Big Box store considered "self grounding" when used in EMT uses. Or is it a more expensive receptacle that I should look for?

THANKS.

In general the cheap, bulk, 15 amp receptacles are not self grounding. Personally, I don't trust self grounding devices anyway. Buy the green ground wires that come with screws and are made just for this purpose.

Ceiling fan with remote Q

I am removing an existing dining room light fixture. I am replacing the plastic blue box with a metal brace & box rated for the new fan & light. The present cable is 12/2 NM (with a ground). Is that cable going to be ok? I guesss the idea of the remote control is what is confusing me. The black conductors at the switch will be connected via wire nut and I planned on just putting a blank cover back on the wall switch box. Sorry, but I will not be purchasing the fan until tomorrow, so I do not have the directions yet.

THANKS!

You really should start a new thread for a new topic.

Your plan for the fan sounds fine.
