  • New box between two GFCIs

    Hello. I have a series of GFCI receptacles in my kitchen that are linked together. I passed inspection with them and all is well. But now I am adding a range hood between two of them -- one of the to is the receptacle that contains the main power source from the circuit breaker. Here's my question: can I simply unhook the connections in the first receptacle -- that is, the main wire coming into the box, the wires to the first receptacle, and the wires to the next GFCI, and add in a new wire which will run to a new box which will be covered and which will contain the new wire and the wires from the range hood? I'm asking if that range hood box can stand alone and get its "power" from the first box, or does it have to be connected to the second receptacle too? Many thanks in advance.

    Take the feed coming in to the first box and splice that with a pigtail on the hot and neutral to the cable feeding the fan. Put the pigtails on the line side of the first GFCI and leave the load side (that feeds the next receptacle) alone. Twist all the grounds together with a splice cap and ground all to the first GFCI receptacle.
