(I am the agent responsible for converting liquid ice cream into gas, but that is a completely separate Anyway, I have a sense that this thing is working as advertised, but I can't tell for sure since it hasn't tripped or freaked out after a few electrical experiments. I think you did a good job! (In my opinion.
Wiring layout that is the dumbest I've ever seen. A couple of weeks ago, I installed one of these GFI outlets after discovering that my old outlet had tripped several hours before it was noticed, and my freezer in the garage was losing temperature. Not only does it have an LED indicator for operation but it also has an audible alarm that can be heard from anywhere Depending on the circuit, we now know if the issue is with the circuit as soon as it happens. I am very happy with this product. Installation was simple and it works perfectly.
As well as a freezer and refrigerator, I have them in my garage. In the event that this GFCI ever trips, I threaten to lose a lot of food if I don't discover it immediately. Therefore, I wanted the GFCI to not only give a visual indicator of trip, but also a voice announcement while it is tripping. My wife and I will now hear this GFCI every time she steps out of the car or we walk through the garage in order to get outside if the circuit is failing. This is great! The volume is not too loud, and others have pointed that out as well. There's no such thing as an alarm that is as loud as you might expect. In this case, unless there are any loud noises to drown it out, the alternating tones will attract your attention.
In Leviton's opinion, it lives up to its claims. Other people had stated they could hear it throughout the entire house, so I decided on this specific model. This alarm works great (I had a freezer hooked up in the garage and I learned I needed an alarm). It's simple to install and works well. I liked the way it worked. The problem is. I can hear it within 3 feet of my ear. You must have thought that it had to be faulty, didn't you? As a result of my call to Leviton, a replacement was shipped I have no problem with that. This unit has the same story as the previous one. Leviton again, this time on the phone. The only thing I have is that. It is about as loud as a dishwasher at 69 dB. The quality of the work is not up to my standards. As I searched Leviton's website and elsewhere for the GFTA2, I did not find it We couldn't find information about how loud it is in the specifications. The only information that I have is the information Leviton tech support provided. I don't think that's too loud. I am very disappointed and will have to locate a new battery - The alarm is very loud when it is operated.
Two outlets that used to work fine, but did not alarm, needed to be replaced with these. An electric freezer was powered by one. That outlet went out because of a ground fault, so I'd like to begin diagnosing it as soon as possible. There have been times when it has tripped due to When I installed the first outlet, it was a very easy process. By simply swapping the wires from the old outlet to the new one, I was able to connect them. It worked on the first outlet, but not on the second. My original thought was it was defective.
I contacted Leviton support, who were wonderful to work with. A few wires had to be rearranged to fix the problem. The old one was not wired safely, so it is not working. I was able to solve a wiring issue in my home with the new outlet in addition to giving me an alarm. They were great at following up with me throughout this problem as I worked on it.
In the laundry room, I have a freezer. In my neighborhood, tucked behind the washer and sink, you need a circuit protected by a GFCI. I had gotten a few deer during hunting season a few years ago, so I don't expose myself to water. It did not recover from the power outage, and the old GFCI outlet inside was damaged. Previously, there was an automatic nightlight attached to it, but I guess we got too accustomed to it and forgot to check it after the A week passed before we noticed that the smell of rotting meat was coming from the kitchen. My poor feeling was immense, as I felt terribly guilty about throwing away two deer's worth of meat! My mind tells me that those animals died needlessly. There's one of these GFCI outlets with an alarm that I picked up. After a power outage, this will, when power is restored, sound an alarm as soon as the outlet is tripped. I believe it was worth it, because we have only had to reset the outlet once since the power came back on, but, in my view, there hasn't been any more meat to trash. The two refrigerators I have now have these insulated door panels on them, so my fruits and vegetables won't be wasted.
A licensed electrician should be contacted if necessary! It is set at a medium volume level in the Audible alarm It is lower. You can use the scale to measure it. Even though it is noticeable, it is not in any way unbearably Install this if you frequently travel near the socket you plan to install it on or if you live relatively close to it. I did not plan to return this product and am satisfied with it overall.
Having read reviews that claimed otherwise, I bought two of these outlets strictly for the audible alarm that goes off when an electrical circuit is One was installed in the basement about 12 feet from the stairs to the first floor. I could not hear it by the time I got to the top of the stairs. It may be okay to have the trip alert turn on audibly, but I needed something to wake me on the third floor where it is installed from a sound sleep. As long as you're not concerned about it not being loud enough to hear more than maybe 10 feet away, and that's in a quiet environment, I'd still recommend it.
