He's right, small appliances should not be wired to a gfi in the first place. It should be on it's own dedicated circuit.

Remove the gfci outlet and wire the circuit directly to the dishwasher. dishwashers are not required to be gfci protected.

Why would our Model 702-27, be kicking the breaker. Tried changing plugs, but as soon as the breaker is reset and then the machine is turned on it kicks. The machine is full of product, and was runn

What breaker? The GFI on the wall plug?
If so,liquid may have entered the device and tripped the gfi breaker at the wall plug OR the main panel that provides power to that wall plug.

Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

My dolphin pool vacuum keeps kicking my gfi as soon as i turn it on ! It will not work at all !! What can be wrong ? Please help !!!!!

If it continually trips the GFI then most likely you are putting to much load on that circuit. Try plugging into a different outlet you know is not on that circuit. If that's not available make sure to turn off all light(s) or other appliances on that circuit to minimize the load.

To rule out the possibility of a faulty motor or extension cord, plug another appliance into the same location and turn it on. A hair dryer is the best to test that or a vacuum cleaner because they draw a lot of Amps. If it faults again then you know its not your motor and more than likely an electrician will be required to fix your outlet.

The initial start up on a motor like that requires a lot of amps to start. Once its running it will require less amperage to operate. This is the first step in troubleshooting your issue before searching elsewhere.

I hope this information help you with your question. Please remember to rate this information.
Thank you,

I have a very old hotpoint fridg it was working fine then it started kicking out the gfi outlet can you help

The security switch is being kicked on (Gfi) because there is something wrong with the fridge. It could be the compressor, it could be the overall electrics...etc.

What type of sound are you hearing? Smell anything? Does it happen at night or during the day, all the time?

Is there anything else big in the area that is a new item that may be drawing more electricity than the circuits in that area can handle? Example would be Toaster, Coffee pot, Oven and Fridge sharing the same electric source, not the same plug - same wires.

Do you live in a newer home or an older home?

My dishwasher kicks off and pops the GFI why

This is a common problem as the pump motor and the heater often pull more amps than the GFI is rated at. Try another power source that does not have a bunch of other things running off the same breaker.

Even the lowest drawing commericial dishmachines must be wired to a "dedicated" 20 AMP breaker.

Forget using an extention cord as this will also defeat your purpose.

Dishwasher kicks gfi outlet every time I start it.

Well I would verify that the GFCI outlet is functioning properly. It is possible that the outlet is defective. If the outlet is good then the dishwasher is causing a significant electrical draw due to a possible internal electrical short.
