15A switches on a 20A circuit
I am running a 20A circuit (per code) to my new bathroom. I found a lighted switch that I'd like to use, but it's rated at 15 amps.
The circuit only has a 20 amp GFCI and the vanity light.
Can I use this 15 amp switch on this circuit or must it be rated at 20 amps?
15A rating on switch is the rated load. You can use it on a 20A circuit. Don't load it over 15A.
