GFCI Wall Outlet Blows

Anyone had this problem???? I turn the unit on and the GFCI keeps blowing, I reset it and turn the power on it is fine..... turn the dial and the fuse blows again. I then opened up the unit and unplugged the motor... seems fine, turn the dial and nothing blows..... plug the motor back in and it starts to run just fine.... I drag the unit a little bit and it blows the fuse.... strange I think so I repeat the ritual and now it consistently blows the fuse when the spin cycle starts.... seems maybe like some sort of a short or could the motor be bad? I have no idea but would love to hear some input. Thanks in advance.

No lights, won't run. Nothing. Worked fine yesterday.


Hello. Critical question--is the dishwasher on that GFCI circuit!? If so, (A) you might have voided any warranty and (B) you should NEVER have appliances with digital boards on a GFCI circuit. Why? Because the method GFCI breakers and outlets use to keep us safe(how they reference current to ground) can blow out the electronic control boards plugged in to the circuit they monitor. I am ALWAYS telling my customers to immediately switch out an outlet or breaker which is protecting a washer, dishwasher, or microwave. I know that electrical codes often mandate that a GFCI device be within 3 feet of a water source but the design engineers didn't think about that one...It often is buried in the users manual to NOT connect the device to a GFCI.
Now, after all that, I need the model number of your unit to help you most accurately--some dishwashers have a main fuse on or near the main control board. If this fuse opens, voila! The unit is D-E-A-D until you replace the fuse. However, if there isn't a fuse, you've got a blown main board(and possibly user control panel, too). Power slams like the one you experienced are notorious for damaging control boards. That's why power outages are so destructive--they either blow out boards immediately or cause them to fail in about 3-4 weeks afterwards due to the damaged chips on the board starting to fail from over-current/voltage. I hope I helped you!

Wall switch keeps going off when reset is hit


Question posted under MP3 player?
You have wall switch.
You have a short circuit.
Unknown what reset is being pushed.
Is this a GFCI reset?
Is this a switch-outlet GFCI combo?
What happens when your switch 'goes off?'
Do you mean that the light connected to the switch turns off?

What happens when wall switch is set to off position?
Can the reset be reset successfully when switch is OFF?

Add a comment and include more details about the type of switch, and type of reset button, and include if this is new installation or if the device worked before and started tripping, for best possible help.

No power. Will not turn on


Not intended to offend;
1. If using A/C (house electrical power), please check if electrical wall outlet is active. Attempt to plug-in another electrical device such as a lamp, clock, radio, etc.. If the electrical wall outlet has top and bottom plugs, try the top and then the bottom plug to see which one works. Sometimes, the top outlet will not work, yet the bottom outlet does work. The wall outlet should be replaced by qualified technician.
2. If both outlets do NOT work, and the outlet is GFCI breaker protected, maybe pressing the RESET switch on the outlet will power-up the outlet.
3. If the outlet is NOT GFCI breaker protected, check your electrical fuse box for a tripped fuse. Sometimes, a tripped fuse is NOT visible. May have to trip the specific fuse or all fuses to off, then back on. Recheck the wall outlet.
4. Once your know the outlet is live, check the power cord (a/c adapter for laptops) to make sure they are securely plugged-in to both the wall outlet AND the PC or Laptop.

Will need more information once the above steps are taken:

Is it a Desktop or Laptop?
Make and Model (if known)?
Any lights (glowing) on the desktop or laptop?
Any lights on the A/C adapter if its a laptop?

I have a samsung RS21DCSV And It keeps tripping out the power But when I Disconnect the 2 conectors on the compressor it stays on what is my problem Cheers and Thanks Clive!!!!


If it's popping the reset button on a GFCI outlet, I would recommend rewiring the outlet with no GFCI. Your compressor has a small leak to ground. The cost to replace the compressor is $500+. It should work fine with no GFCI. A good test is to plug it into an extension cord that is plugged into a regular outlet.

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.

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.
