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..

Need more info:
What fuse? the one at the end of the cord on the pressure washer? Or the circuit breaker on your house?

If it is the one on the cord it may have gone bad. To test replace it with normal plug (non-GFI) and plug it into an outdoor or bathroom GFCI (GFI) outlet. If it still trips that outlet then there is a ground fault in the device which may be minor or major.

If it is a home circuit breaker remember that electric pressure washers use a lot of power - typically 1500 watts. If anything else is plugged in it can trip the house circuit breaker.

Purchase new 32'' tv 2-day ago, will not work in a GFI plug outlet trips GFI each time you reset, is there something wrong with unit? works fine in a non GFI outlet


Good News!!! GFI outlets are made to trip when a large amount of power is pulled through them. A GFI is basically a small circuit breaker.Your television set is probably just pulling more amperage than the GFI is rated to handle. That means the GFI is working properly And so is the TV!

Pump plugged in to grounded receptacle trips the


If by "trips the breaker" you mean the GFI then you are leaking current to ground, GFI's trip when there is an imbalance between the current going to the motor on the HOT side and returning from the motor on the NEUTRAL side, if it is tripping the GFI it is likely the sign of a failing motor.

Refrigerators and freezers should not be run on a GFI outlet the it will weaken and start tripping.Most manufacturers now print this in the owners manual.

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.

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.
