I have a switch in the bathroom that controls the light, the bathroom fan, and the "razor only" outlet. I replaced the "razor only" outlet with a GFCI outlet and all works as it did before. I would like the outlet to remain powered even when the light and fan are off. I have read in the newsgroup about the wiring in the switch (which I haven't looked at). Does the wiring in the outlet box matter?
With the "razor only" outlet, the three cables (each with a white and black/hot wire) were all twisted together (all three white wires and all three black wires) to the wires leading to the outlet. I determined which of these cables was the line/source and relegated the other two as "load" cables. I wired the GFCI outlet appropriately. I'm wondering if the wiring in the outlet box needs to be considered when changing the wiring in the light switch box. Again, I haven't looked in the light switch box, but there is only one switch that is either on or off.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations or suggestions!
