It’s a three wire 14/2 Romex with ground . I tested for power with a non contact volt meter. If you split the wires apart you can normally test each wire for power.

I am capable of running electricity, not really a worry for me and I have a electrician coming to help out. He never heard of it before. I just don’t want to have to tear out all the wiring to find the problem. Thought maybe someone have heard of this before.

A short in the wires would cause the breaker to trip, short to ground should cause the gfci to trip.

I have remolded houses and never come across anything like this before. Just thought it was a interesting predicament. The only other thing is that the meter is giving me a false reading. I was just looking for some ideas so I don’t have to pay a electrician to spend my money investigating.

Thanks all.
