Hello Joesal,
A GFI receptacle senses and imbalance between the hot ( line voltage) feed and ground. There should be no current sensed on the ground. This protection feature will disable the line voltage in milliseconds if it sense current passing thru to ground. The intent is to sense current flow to ground and in the event that you are that path ( meaning current is flowing thru you as a ground)..it disables that line voltage in milliseconds to keep you from being electrocuted. You have either a bad GFI receptacle or there is leakage current getting thru to ground. In either case, its a good idea to determine which is the problem.. I suggest you try your coffee maker on another GFI receptacle in your home ( perhaps in the bathroom or basement) to verify the coffee maker isn't malfunctioning. If it is,, then you may want to discard it or if you are elecrically handy, repair it,... Do not compromise you or your familys safety with these things.. Be careful and good luck..
In addition,if you do run the coffee maker off an extension cord, make sure it is properly sized for the current that your coffee maker requires.. I wouldn't use any extension cord less than 14 gauge ( #14 )
Good Luck..

Our Magic Comfort plus is 4 years old and it keeps blowing the gfi instantly when I plug it in. I have had this problem occassionally in the past and it resolves after one or two gfi trips. Now if tripo...


The problem believe it or not your gfi is warn out. I am actually surprised it lasted as long as it has and surprised it worked at all. Espresso machines use a huge amount of power when turning on compared to maintaining power. When espresso machines first turn on the take a huge surge of power to start heating up the elements. Normally you want to put an espresso on a circuit /outlet that is directly to your breaker that is at least a 20 amp breaker. By code kitchens and bathrooms, where an outlet is near water, has to have a gfi outlet, this is for safety for something plugged in near water so it will trip if accident happens with appliance near water. The bad news there not to good with high demand power appliances such as espresso machines. Yes , you can replace the gfi circuit, by turning off main breaker, unscrew gfi from wall, pull out, and undo wires, and copy exactly when re-wiring the new one. Then turn on main breaker again. NOTE: you can buy a gfi all most any home improvement center, lowers, home depot, ace hardware etc.... Think of a gfi kind of like a advanced in line fuse, they do wear out. BUT AGAIN, my advice is plug it in a outlet that does not have gfi and is on a main breaker of at least 20 amps if you have that opportunity to do in your kitchen area. Hope this helps you, thank you....... MIKE

The gfi trips every time I turn it on


Chances are while you have a 20amp circuit in your kitchen the gfi you are plugging into is rated at 15amps. First make sure your outlet is connected to a 20amp circuit breaker and then change out the gfi for a 20amp one. This coffee pot is more for commercial than residential usage, I had the same problem until I changed out the gfi plug.

When i plug it in it trips my gfi and it is not on


This can be caused by one of two things. (1) The GFI plug has a problem: it could be broken behind the face plate, or some of the wires in the box are so close that when you push a plug into the outlet, they touch and trip the GFI. (2) The other source is due to a defect in the appliance between the cord and the power switch. That is why the GFI faults even before it the coffee maker is turned on.

Have the outlet checked thoroughly and make any needed adjustments / repair /replacement and reconnect the coffee maker again. If it trips, the coffee maker will need to be serviced. DO NOT use the coffee maker in another non-GFI outlet until it has been checked out. The chances of electrical shock or burns is significant until the problem is found and corrected.

Trips GFI circuit brakers


First of all, lets clarify what is going on. You say it trips the GFI breaker, so I'm assuming that it is not a GFCI receptacle that you are plugging into. So you are going to the electrical panel and resetting the GFCI breaker.  If it were a GFCI receptacle, have you tried other loads in this receptacle for 30-40 seconds, ie: Toaster, hairdryer, coffee pot? If everything works fine then there is something wrong with the ESP8XL. It would seem that there is a leakage path to ground from one of the conductors. If it is new, bring it back.

You're not alone.  Same problem here.  Breakaway power cord on my Waring deep frier burnt to a crisp.  Don't known about you, but I'll never buy Waring products again.
