There are specfic rules we have to follow to install those items. You just can't " half a$$ed " rig them up.

Now next part you say killing the breaker is out of the question that is wrong right there you can shedule a short down time to shut a branch circuit breaker to that room and deal with it and OSHA will love to heard this one.

And I am sure you undestand this is a DIY fourm genrally geared to the homeowners not the commercal owner whom try to save money if not following the regulations or codes.

Again sorry to be harsh but the codes are strict on them espcally with motels.

I live in France and we do have very strict codes to follow it the same way with Americian electricians to do it.

So bottom line it much better just hire a electrician and go from there.

Bon Chance !!

Merci,
Marc
Thank you for your explanation. Based on the number of rooms and the cost for new hair dryers as appose to hiring an electrician I may just go with buying new hair dryers.

If I cannot replace a hair dryer without calling an electrician then it's not worth it in the long run.

I completely accept criticism and harsh truth if it is explained in a civil and intelligent manner.

Thanks again.

That is not a problem at all as long you can understand our point of view what we are try to do is steer them in correct way for safety reason.

I am pretty sure there is other kind of hairdryer you can use a new style which it will not affect the GFCI receptale at all and it is still semi perament mounting but it will have a cord end that still attached to the receptale so that may elemated the need of electrician on that part.

Our European verison we used we have dryer shelf or port if you want to call it and it is semi perament and it have hanger to hang up the hair dryer which it do included a automatique switch so when you hang it up it will shut it off.

So that one option you can take a look at it. There are few way you can do it in safe manner.

Merci,
Marc

Right, the ones we have in the room now are simple. They have a bracket to hold the hair dryer and a regular plug in with a pig tail cord. I've had a few burn out and what was ordered ages ago was the strange ones I mentioned previously.

I can find something similar.
