I installed a new GFCI breaker for a hot tub on the deck in a separate box from the main panel. Wired it to the hot tub . but it will not turn on.

Would a wire at a lug not fully secured cause the breaker to stay tripped?

  • There is power going to the box with the breaker in it, right? That power isn't still disconnected? – JPhi1618 Dec 19 '17 at 20:25

    Did you install the breaker correctly (following installation instructions)? – Tester101 Dec 19 '17 at 20:33

    A photo of the GFCI connections in the new box would probably show what is wrong. – Ed Beal Dec 19 '17 at 22:38

    We do need more information, history, etc. – Paul Logan Dec 19 '17 at 23:00

    Can you post photos of how the GFCI breaker is wired? – ThreePhaseEel Dec 20 '17 at 0:08
