How Do I Reset or Test My GFCI Receptacle?
If the GFCI receptacle trips, all of the receptacles on that circuit will not work. Please unplug all devices and reset the GFCI circuit at the receptacle (NOT at the main panel). If the GFCI receptacle fails to reset and trips after several attempts, there may be a more serious problem. Please contact us to discuss the issue in more detail.
The red button is the reset button that you depress to reactivate the outlet or outlets in the event of deactivation resulting from a fault (trip) or from a test (see below).
The black button is a test button and, when pressed, should deactivate the outlet and any other outlet fed from it. This deactivation indicates a properly functioning device. After testing, press the red button to reset the circuit.
