Just got my TT back and it was a loose wire in the back of the breaker box. It came loose and effected some of the outlets and the fridge.

Works great now and didn't cost anything!! WOOT.

i think one of the reasons they run multiple outlets off of just one GFCI at least in residential use, as it doesn't really require more, and you won't have to run around checking every room if one trips. i have a small house, and it only has two... well, maybe three now that i think... but if one trips, i usually know which one... (teenager with a 'straightening iron', whatever the **** that is)...

funny i haven't had that problem since she went to college... i have an entirely different problem(s) now!

The reason they only use 1 GFCI instead of multiple is because of cost. You can the same safe protection from 1 GFCI outlet that is used to protect multiple outlets. A regular receptacle costs abou $1.50 while a GFCI costs around $8.00

With the price of copper now, it may be cheaper to install another GFCI than make a long run from one side of your house to the other. It would also depends on where your panel is located.
