I am replacing a receptacle with a GFCI receptacle. I know very little about this process other than to just mirror the current process. However, this receptacle in question only has 3 wires (ground, white black).
Is my basic understanding of the set-up accurate in a sense that when both the top and bottom screw have copper wiring wrapped around it, typically 1 is coming from the "switch" (whether it be circuit breaker or elsewhere) and the other set of wires is going to a second outlet/lightswitch?
So since this outlet only has 1 set of wires then I just need to pick either the top or bottom outlet, wire in the wires and both top and bottom outlet will work?
