Hello, I was hoping to get some insight into what would be causing by breaker to trip on a wiring project I am undertaking in the bathroom.
I have a 20 amp circuit running 12/2 to one box in the bathroom where the hot feeds are pigtailed onto the switches.
I borrowed this killer diagram from Stubbie, who created it to assist with another questioner. Though there are a few differences in my project, this diagram is remarkably close to what I am trying to do.
Differences- I used two 12/2 cables from the box to the fan and light instead of a 12/3. In retrospect this was dumb, but live and learn.
Also, On my project the outlet will be extending from the vanity light.
Unfortunately, the fuse blows when I try to turn it on.
Also- is there a better way to deal with all the grounding wires? Becuase of the maximum capacity on my wire nuts I have three different arrays of grounding wires, which all to to one grounding screw in the box. I thought about using more grounding screws in the box, but it seemed like I was just replacing one wire nut arrangement for another.
I do wonder if the sheer quantity of copper wire in the box could have something to do with my issue.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
