If a pump connected to a gfci brkr is tripping it , gfci has detected a connection from hot wire to ground !! this could be a high resistance connection still allowing pump to run but "leaking" power to ground thru restance connection , this pump could become dangerious (if short gets worse) and should not be used for this application

My 30amp 2 pole gfci circuit breaker keeps tripping right after i reset it. It's connected to my endless pool and has never trip before. Is it a bad gfci ?


Replace GFCI and see if the breaker is bad.
Otherwise, my guess is that you have a short in the pool or pool heating element.
If you have AFCI (arc fault), then a loose wire connection anywhere along the line will trip breaker

Gfci keeps tripping


You need to determine if it is experiencing a ground failure or a short. You can purchase an outlet tester at Lowes for a low price that will indicate if you have an open ground, a short etc. If the GFCI outlet is bad then replace it.

Install another GFCI

Do not use anything that trips GFCI in water.
Just get another one and be safe.

REFRIGERATOR KEEPS TRIPPING THE GFCI OUTLET


A GFCI detects shorts in an electrical system and isolates power to prevent that device from harming other components upstream. GFCI's do go bad so that possibility exists. However, I would recommend trying to plug in your refrigerator into another outlet in your kitchen that has a different GFCI plug. If it does not trip then the GFCI needs to be replaced. If you do not have another available GFCI outlet and you plug it into a regular outlet, your breaker for that service line MAY trip. Better off testing with another GFCI. If your second GFCI trips, then the problem is with your refrigerator...meaning you have a short in your refrigerator. If you think this is something you can troubleshoot...BE CAREFUL!!! Always unplug your refrigerator before going into the components of the refrigerator. One thing you can do is turn both the freezer and refrigerator temperatures OFF or to their lowest setting. Plug your refrigerator in and see if the GFCI trips. If it trips you have a major short...probably in the bottom of the refrigerator. If it does not trip, turn the freezer temperature on first and see if it will run without tripping the GFCI. If it runs, then turn the freezer temp OFF. Then repeat the process testing the refrigerator components. Ice makers have been known to generate shorts in the system as well. There are various ways to troubleshoot a fridge. If you do not have the required electrical troubleshooting skills then PLEASE call a service technician.

Delfield freezer 6151-S keeps tripping GFCI


Try it in a normal plug. Freezers and refridgerators just pull too much to be used on a GFCI. The more a GFCI is used the eaiser it trips.

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


Hello

Coffee makers have a heating unit in them which draw a lot of current. If it is on the same circuit as refrigerator, toaster and other it will trip the breaker. Also, some breakers are more sensitive than others. Have an electrician run a separate circuit for the coffee maker outlet. Try running it in the dining room outlet, which I hope is separate from the kitchen outlets. Is the house old? Older homes have a lot of mixed up wiring.

The gfci on cord keeps tripping


GFCI's trip because theire is current leaking to ground. This often can be be caused simply by electrical components getting wet.

Or, it can be caused by a serious short to ground.

Fist, check to see if the inside circuits are getting wet from an internal leak. If so, fix leak, dry off components with a har dryer, try again.

If GFCI trips, it should be serviced by an experienced appliance repair person.
