I had this outlet working this morning but now it keeps popping the breaker.
I have it wired up the same way as befor without adding in the new outlet and it still pops the breaker.
Am I useing an incorrect receptical?
I think I figured it out.
The little metal tab between the screws holding the red and black wire had to be snapped out for it to work.
I guess it was arking.
I will finnish the job and let you know what happened
