Could be that your auguris binding and putting heavy load on the motor. It could also be a bad GFI circuit. I doubt that your thermometer could put enough load on the circuit to cause the GFI to trip unless there's a big-time short in it. Could also be a short elsewhere in the wiring harness or fan motor.

Hot gfi keeps tripping


You didn't specify how your pool is set up, but the GFI tripping means you have too much power, too many devices plugged into it. I think you need an electrician, just to be safe.

Traeger trip gfi


Could be the hot rod igniter has accumulated too much moisture.

From Traeger:
Why won't my Grill Ignite?
  1. If your grill is plugged into an electrical outlet with a GFI (ground fault interrupter) plug, chances are the hot rod has absorbed or been exposed to too much moisture and is leaking to ground causing the plug to trip.
  2. Open your cooking chamber lid, remove cooking grill, angled drip pan and U-shaped firepot cover. Is there ash build up in the firepot and/or around the firepot? If so, this needs to be cleaned out. The ash is choking out the fire.
  3. Check the fuse on the back of the control board. To do this, first UNPLUG the grill from the electrical outlet. Then, unscrew the control board and look at the fuse-is it blown or not?
  4. If the fuse is good, check for power by switching the colored plugs first. Unplug the purple plug and the orange plug. Plug the purple plug into the orange plug. Now plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the grill on. Does the induction fan operate? If so, you will need a new hot rod and fuse. If not, you will need a new control board. Unplug the purple from the orange and reconnect the plugs together to their correct color plug.
  5. Always start your grill on the SMOKE setting.

What's youI just wired in my J-300 Jacuzzi hot tub. The GFI trips every time I reset it. I took the GFI out of the equation and the tub runs fine, does not trip the breaker at the main breaker box


#1. DO NOT GET INTO TUB FULL OF WATER WITH A GROUND FAULT.
2. There is a short. You need to get multimeter and start checking each part for current running to ground wire.
3) Power is ON. Connect power without GFCI.
4) Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
5) Do not touch anything directly or you will become the ground rod.
6) Ground wire must be present, and bonded back to main panel box.
7) Do not sit or touch directly on cement or bare ground. Do not touch or lean into anything made of metal.
8) Body and parts must be on sheet of plywood, or similar non-conductive dry surface.
9) Test each part with spa, but also test electric line coming from main box.
10) GFCI will also trip with any fault detected on line. So the wire coming to spa may have the fault.
11) Add a new dedicated line from main box to spa.

My Traeger keeps tripping GFI outlet. Replaced outlets and this still happens. Suggestions?


I think you have already discovered that the outlet is not at fault. So, now you have to troubleshoot the electrical parts of the grill and their wiring. Most of this you can do with a visual inspection, looking for frayed wires, incomplete connections or bare wire(s) touching the metal framing of the grill and even a circuit that is wire incorrectly.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual (which has a wiring diagram) have included a link to it that you can download and print for future reference. Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

Just installed hott rod to camper and it keeps blowing fuses what's wrong


A six gallon universal style hott rod, is supposed to draw only 4 amps when heating. What you need to do is double check any other items running on that same circuit. Not uncommon for people to plug it in to outside GFI and then find out that GFI protected receptacle near sink inside is on same circuit, and they are using that for coffee maker, or hot plate etc, which will in most cases overload the circuit.
Shut that circuit breaker off, and see what else isn't working then do an amperage draw calculation to see if you may be overloading it. If no chance of overload, then you may want to re-check how you wired it in case of a short, or loose connection. If all that checks out good, then I'd look at the hott rod itself as the culprit.

Our hot tub keeps tripping the gfi breaker, but if we don't put it on a gfi then it works fine. How do you fix this


The GFI is sensing a fault, and tripping to protect you. If there is another GFI in the circuit somewhere then you could use that normal receptacle. I mean if there is a GFI in the main panel.

Please Vote !!
