The light and outlets in my hot tub room stopped working. Figured my GFCI went bad so I put a new one in. Green light on so I figured I did everything right, still no lights or power to other receptacles. Thought I'd switch and use a standard receptacle and everything works. I want a GFCI there, so what am I missing?

Did you reset it? I believe most are shipped 'tripped' and you have to push the reset button once installed and powered up. Did you connect power to the 'line' terminals and the lights/outlets to the 'load' terminals?

I know these GFCI's are sensitive and I noticed some white corrosion on copper ground on a receptacle. Could that be whats not allowing things to work? If so shouldn't my GFCI light be red?

The instructions should tell you what the red and green light mean. Did you connect the incoming power to the line terminals?

You connected the white / black that read 120 to the line terminals? And the other black/whites to the load terminals?
