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.

GFCI wont reset, or, runs for 5 minutes and shuts off


Refrigerators should not be plugged into a GFCI outlet. The surge of current when the compressor starts up will trip the GFCI.

My hot tub has been running perfectly until a few nights ago when the GFCI breaker tripped and now it wont reset


Either you have a ground fault or the GFCI is toasted. Turn off the power to the GFCI, open the box the GFCI is in and disconnect the output wires, close up the box, re-energize, and try to reset it again. This will tell you which problem you have.

Hello,I have an old jacuzzi vectra II hot tub (1988) 120 volt.the gfci on the unit trips every time the pump is on low speed with the thermostat calling for heat. there is no trip when there is no demand...


hi,

ok so when the pump is on high and the heater is running it doesent trip? you didnt say if it did. undo the heater leads so the pump is isolated completely. run the pump on the control centers gfci and see if it trips. if it does then try wiring directly - with an extension cord to a plug with a gfci in your house and see if it trips the gfci in your bathroom. if no trip inside house then bypass tubs gfci and run it with heater and pump through your bathroom gfci. if no trip then try and replace the tubs gfci, it gets pretty humid in the control center and gfci's have a semiconductor which which do fail after years of rough duty like that. if it trips the gfci in your house with the heater again it has a cracked heater element. craigslist always has old hot tubs and parts. you might have to buy a whole used old hot tub but that may be cheaper than a new heater box.

later

Whirlpool refrigerator trips gfci outlet


Yes ,, if the fridge outlet is behind the fridge and therefore not accessible for use by counter top appliances .. then yes change it to a regular outlet.
The cause is probably the compressor, getting a bit noisy..electrical noise I mean.

GFCI Trips After an Hour


It is possible that the extention cord is the problem. Over time wires will heat voltage will drop. Along with the added distance on the code the voltage drop cause a drain and trips the GFCI. Try replacing GFCI and also try opperating without the extension cord.
