GFCI breaker


The pump for my new pond ran dry for 2 seconds and the GFCI breaker in the house tripped now the receptical will not read 110 volts thru the slots in the receptical but i get voltage on the hot side and the ground. I reset the breaker and let it cool down. Now what?

GFCI breaker


You probably have a loose or broken neutral.

You said it's a GFCI breaker. Do you know if the receptacle you are having trouble with is the ONLY one powered by that breaker?

Edit-by breaker I mean is it in the service panel?
