Appliances with GFCI, ALCI and IDCI Protection

Some consumer appliances such as portable hair dryers have built-in protection. These appliances will have a large box-like device with RESET and TEST buttons and a polarized plug.


ALCI is an Appliance Leakage Circuit Interrupter and IDCI is an Immersion Detection Circuit Interrupter. GFCI, ALCI and IDCI work in different ways but they are all intended to shut off power to the appliance when an abnormality is detected.

How GFCI Receptacles Work

GFCI outlets constantly monitor the flow of electricity through the outlet's circuit. If an imbalance is detected by even a very small amount, the GFCI interrupts power instantly thereby protecting the electronic device connected to the outlet and, ultimately, the person handling the device.

Possible Causes of GFCI Outlet Trip

Back to Top

Reset a Tripped GFCI

The cause of the fault should be determined before resetting the circuit in order to avoid damage to household equipment. When a protected appliance or outlet is tripped, power is instantly shut off and the RESET button on the appliance or outlet pops out.

Testing a GFCI Outlet

Test your GFCI outlets every month to make sure they function properly.

National Electrical Code (NEC)

The National Electrical Code (NEC) is the standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the United States.  The NEC, while having no legally binding regulation as written, is generally adopted by states and municipalities as the standards by which they enforce safe electrical practices within their jurisdiction. Considered the benchmark for safe electrical installations, the NEC is published by The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) every three years.


Don’t try to replace or fix a faulty GFCI outlet yourself; it could be very dangerous! Nisat Electric's Licensed Master Electrician is trained to troubleshoot and repair electrical problems related to malfunctioning or defective GFCI outlets, and perform all work in accordance with NEC.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Receptacle

A GFCI receptacle is an inexpensive outlet designed to stop electricity when a fault is detected. When wired and functioning properly, GFCIs protect people from electrical shock. GFCI outlets are easily identified by the two buttons in the middle: a RESET button (often red) and a TEST button (often black).

GFCI Outlets

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets can save your life! The National Electrical Code (NEC) mandates that every electrician in Frisco, Texas install GFCI outlets in many locations throughout your home or business, particularly in places considered "wet locations." These areas include:



If you live in an older home with original wiring, chances are that if you sell your home the electrical inspector will require that GFCI outlets be installed in place of non-GFCI outlets in all wet areas.


What Is A Ground Fault?

A ground fault is an unintentional electrical current between a power source and a grounded surface. Ground faults most often occur when equipment is damaged or defective, resulting in live electrical parts that are no longer adequately protected from unintended contact. If your body provides a path to the ground for this current you could receive an electrical shot, serious burns or electrocution.
