I'm not very strong with electrical, but I can do basic repairs. I plugged an extension cord in and somehow the 15 amp GFCI in my garage blew. I replaced it with a new 15 amp GFCI. I now have power to my garage and outside outlets except an outside GFCI by the front porch. I'm going to test for power with a multimeter and replace if necessary (hopefully an easy fix ). My main issue is now every time I switch on my fluorescent shop light (four foot, 2 bulb, plug in type) in a different outlet, it trips my new GFCI. Anything else I plug in is fine. I never had that issue before. I've recently been doing a lot of sanding. Could the sawdust be affecting the Ballasts and causing a short?
Any advice from you experienced electrical guys/ladies? I'm on a 20 amp breaker by the way.
Thanks in advance
