Bathroom circuit: 60V between line and load?
Hello, we were trying to install a GFI in the bathroom power outlet today, the bathroom is on its own circuit, and the GFI kept resetting. Checked some voltages:
- Line to white: 120 VAC
- Line to ground: 120 VAC
- Line to load: 60 VAC
60 Volts?! We repeated all the checks several times. When the was fuse pulled, there was no voltage on any of the lines. There are three other loads in the bathroom:
- overhead light (compact fluorescent)
- Heat lamp with blower (converted to compact fluorescent)
- Exhaust fan
But they were all off when I took the measurements. Any ideas? Specifically, how do you get 60 volts?!
