I have a model 50 Keurig that started tripping the 15 amp GFI in the kitchen. I went to the opposite counter with out the GFI and had no further problems with power.This a.m. the machine was trying to heat the water but would never reach the "ready to brew " prompt. What do you think this might be?

Most Keurig cofee makers will trip 15amp GFI'S .
So you should unplug the machine take all the water out wait about 1/2 hour . Then plug it into an outlet that has at least 115volts and 20 amp breaker or fuse . You can purchase plu in testers at radio shack or electrical supply store.

let me know.

Microwave clock and panel was lit in am wasn't used but in evening when went to use it isn't lit and won't work at all


Hello Anonymous

At the risk of starting with the very basics, when you say that the clock and panel aren't lit and wont' work at all, the first place to look is the wall power. You may be missing power from the wall because:
  1. The microwave isn't plugged in. Someone may have yanked a plug to plug in a mixer, phone charger, thanksgiving animated ornament, or what have you. Trace the cord back and make sure it's plugged in.
  2. Make sure the outlet has power. Take some plug-in-able item and plug to the outlet and see if it can turn on. If not:
  1. A number of kitchen outlets may have GFI switches, especially if they are anywhere near sinks. The GFI may have been tripped. There should be a reset switch in the middle of the plug. See if it's tripped, and reset if necessary.
  2. The breaker may have been tripped. Most kitchen circuits are wired to 20Amp breakers. If this is elsewhere in the house, like in an entertainment room or such, it is likely a 15 Amp outlet. Microwaves can draw a fair amount of power. Someone using another kitchen appliance, hair dryer, or what have you, on the same circuit, may have tripped the breaker. Newer code may specify an AFI or GFI breaker for kitchen outlets. In that case, a fault with something else on the circuit may have tripped the breaker. If that is the case, and it trips again, talk to an electrician. You don't want a fault like that undiagnosed.

    3) You may also want to try plugging the microwave into another outlet, even if the normal outlet seems OK

    If there's wall power and a good plug-in, then you work back to the microwave itself. A number will have fuses. Also, there may be interlocks that kick in if, for instance, the carousel rotation is impeded - that can mean something on the carousel is hitting a wall, which can risk tipping something over and spilling, or risk mucking up the reduction gears for the carousel axle if it keeps pushing.

    At that point, looking for specifics on your microwave model will be needed. You may also try the Microsoft Support approach - i.e unplug it for 5 minutes, then plug it back in and see if it works.

    Hoping this helps, Good Luck!

Hi, I have a Kenmore top freezer refrigerator model number 363.79567990. The freezer stopped working and I found out that I had to press the "Reset" button on the outlet while it was unplugged...


It sounds like you've plugged your fridge into a GFI (ground fault interrupter) outlet.

The National Electrical Code (NEC) article 210.8 A (6) says in dwelling units, only those outlets in a kitchen (I'm assuming your fridge is in the kitchen - right?) "where the receptacles are installed to serve the countertop surfaces" must be provide ground fault protection aka "GFI outlet". Unless your town, city, county or state has laws that supersede the NEC, you should have the outlet changed to a standard, grounded outlet to prevent the nuisance tripping you are experiencing when the cooling compressor is trying to start. A refrigerator is not a counter surface appliance, and therefore does not require GFI protection.

The other outlets are fed from this outlet, so when you connect the fridge to another outlet on the circuit, the same GFI plug trips again. When you replace the GFI plug with a "regular one, the GFI plug should be installed in another outlet to provide the GFI protection needed in the kitchen - as described in the NEC above. If you are not familiar with how to do this, please, call a licensed electrician to do this very important job for you. Be safe & be smart.

I hope this helps!

Our Keurig keeps kicking off the GFI outlet when turned on. Worked fine yesterday. When the outlet is reset I can hear a click insied the machine. Any help would be great. Thank You Kevin McShera


This is not an exact science. The GFI is trying to trip when it thinks you have a dangerous short. But a powerful device will require a surge when it starts up that is always pretty close to what appears to be a dangerous short. You could switch the GFI out with one rated higher, like 20 amps instead of 15 amps. It would be harder to tell if the Keurig is drawing excessively, because it would only be a transient, for a fraction of a second. You would almost need an oscilloscope to tell what it was doing accurately.
My advice would be to try a surge protector, such as:
http://www.hardwareandtools.com/invt/u720584
The idea being that a surge protector has capacitors in it, to slow down or clip rapid current flow or voltage build up. Which should reduce any eroneous tripping. Basically this one is a plug in version of what you have in the wall, but higher quality and easier to install.

Maytag MGR series double oven gas burner trips GFI outlet. There is no direct shorts. Would work when bypassed GFI. but not for long. Now nothing and gfi replaced. Stove fried last one. Stove running for...


the manufacturer recommends a 15 amp time delay breaker or fuse. Which means to me that a GFI outlet will not work on this unit. most of the time it just causes more problems than it is worth? I would only use those type of outlets if code required it.

My 48" Viking Range top trips the GFI


One leg of the power is "dead shorted" to ground. Use a Multimeter and start looking/testing to determine which component is bad.

My under counter Uline refrigerator/ice maker suddenly trips GFI


I here this alot. If you have a compressor on a gfi the compressor after awhile would trip it. The compressor start amps is usually higher than the gfi is rated. So you have 2 choices. Replace the GFI and try to find one with higher amp ratings. Or install a normal outlet for your unit. Your code will usually call for a gfi, If it does then replace with a new gfi.
To explain the start amps on a compressor depending on your model could be 10 amps. This is for a split second. However the gfi can become week after time. You can also try to plug the unit into a normal outlet to make sure everything is good on the unit. I believe it is the gfi

Keeps tripping GFI outlets


The key here is to identify the problem as being either the coffee maker or the GFI receptacle... a simple test can be done as follows...
Try plugging the Coffee Maker into another GFI receptacle .. you may have one in the bathroom? If it trips that too, then you have an internal wiring problem with your coffee maker.. if it doesn;t ..then your GFI receptacle may be bad or on the verge of going bad .. either way..this should narrow the problem down to one or the other.. hope this helps..
