I just installed a new GFCI outlet to the exterior of my house. I ran the power from a switch inside the house. When i test the outlet with my voltage tester it blinks red indicating power...I plugged in a lamp and it did not turn on. I tried plugging in other items as well, with no luck. I'm very confused as to how this outlet is not working properly. I only have wires going in to the load part of the outlet, coming from the switch inside. There are three other switches in the same box, 2 of which are used to power the outside outlet. Please help!
