I'm trying to convert this 1973 "Razor Only" socket to GFCI. I have the full conversion kit and I'm wondering the best way to approach wiring it. I've seen videos where electricians do it differently, either:
- first disconnecting the switch from the socket and then throwing a pigtail between the whites and blacks to the GFCI line terminals...
- OR first disconnecting the switch and then separating out line and load based on the voltages in the energized circuit.
Is one of those approaches superior to the other? I.e. Is there a meaningful difference between the wiring options ("GFCI Pigtail" vs "GFCI Proposed") in this diagram: Circuit Drawings
PS For wiring:
- Top Right Red - Light Switch Hot In
- Top Right Black - Always On (?) Hot In
- Bottom Right Black - Hot Out... to unknown (?)
- Top Left Black - Hot Out to vanity light.
