I currently have a receptacle/switch combination (the switch controls a light, the receptacle is hot with the switch on or off) with two black wires and one white wired, and ground, coming from the box connected to curren combo switch as follows:
- ground wire from box to receptacle ground.
- black wire from box to brass screw on one side of receptacle.
- white wire from box to brass screw on same side of receptacle.
- black wire from box to slver screw (painted black) on other side of receptacle (Other silver screw is also painted black, but is not used).
Note: it is very difficult to determine where the wires come from before entering the box.
The new GFCI receptacle switch combo has 2 back wires coming out of the receptacle case, ground screw, 2 brass screws and 2 silver screws. A piece of tape covers one of the brass screws and one of the silver screws.
How do I replace the old switch/receptacle with the new switch/GFCI receptacle?
