On Feb 23, LJ In Texas responded to posting by deerhunter on replacing 15 amp receptacles on a 20 amp circuit. I said no, they must be rated 20 amps and that is not correct. Receptacles on a 20 amp home service may be either 15 or 20 amp. Receptacles on a 15 amp circuit may be only 15 amp rated receptacles. If a 20 amp circuit supplies only a single receptacle, that receptacle must be rated 20 amps. Apologies to LJ and deerhunter. Luck, Kizmet
