I have a GFCI receptacle that will not reset, and all of the switches -- which are to my garbage disposal, dishwasher, and over-sink light -- will not work. I checked it with a voltage detector after shutting the power off and I still had live wires. How do I get this resolved?
Is this a new outlet where there was not a GFCI before?
Was the unit working before and suddenly stopped working?
There seem to be too many downstream devices on the load side of the GFCI. I would have expected this list of devices to be on at least 3 circuits. That may explain why there still live circuits after shutoff to the GFCI.
In general, GFCIs won't reset when
To isolate the GFCI from any downstream problems, disconnect the load terminals and see if it will reset.
