Mines similar, outlets work but radio will only work on battery. Radio will not work on mains only. Charger works at same time so ok. SORTED IT TONIGHT. Inside the charger inside the box there is a fuse (240v 2A) I think, tiny radio fuse. Changed that tonight and radio now works on mains only or battery. Very awkwark job but better than watching a load of cr** on tv. Hope this helps someone.

Our Magic Comfort plus is 4 years old and it keeps blowing the gfi instantly when I plug it in. I have had this problem occassionally in the past and it resolves after one or two gfi trips. Now if tripo...

The problem believe it or not your gfi is warn out. I am actually surprised it lasted as long as it has and surprised it worked at all. Espresso machines use a huge amount of power when turning on compared to maintaining power. When espresso machines first turn on the take a huge surge of power to start heating up the elements. Normally you want to put an espresso on a circuit /outlet that is directly to your breaker that is at least a 20 amp breaker. By code kitchens and bathrooms, where an outlet is near water, has to have a gfi outlet, this is for safety for something plugged in near water so it will trip if accident happens with appliance near water. The bad news there not to good with high demand power appliances such as espresso machines. Yes , you can replace the gfi circuit, by turning off main breaker, unscrew gfi from wall, pull out, and undo wires, and copy exactly when re-wiring the new one. Then turn on main breaker again. NOTE: you can buy a gfi all most any home improvement center, lowers, home depot, ace hardware etc.... Think of a gfi kind of like a advanced in line fuse, they do wear out. BUT AGAIN, my advice is plug it in a outlet that does not have gfi and is on a main breaker of at least 20 amps if you have that opportunity to do in your kitchen area. Hope this helps you, thank you....... MIKE

Purchase new 32'' tv 2-day ago, will not work in a GFI plug outlet trips GFI each time you reset, is there something wrong with unit? works fine in a non GFI outlet

Good News!!! GFI outlets are made to trip when a large amount of power is pulled through them. A GFI is basically a small circuit breaker.Your television set is probably just pulling more amperage than the GFI is rated to handle. That means the GFI is working properly And so is the TV!

Is a refrigerator usually plugged in to a GFI outlet that's connected to multiple other outlets? Is it mere poor practice or should it never be done?

A GFI outlet (Ground Fault Interrupt) is actually designed to provide extra protection from electrocution in wet areas where water can come into contact with a hot wire, and as long as the refrigerator is plugged directly into the GFI outlet and is not plugged into the GFI outlet by using any extension cord then there should not be any problem as long as the GFI outlet is not over-loaded with other appliances or large electrical demands. If the GFI outlet is tripping then either there is a faulty appliance or electrical device plugged into the GFI outlet or the GFI outlet is simply over-loaded with too much electrical demand, or the GFI breaker could be faulty. Plugging a refrigerator into a GFI outlet is not bad practice, however over-loading one is and that is what should never be done.

Hi my name is samantha and i have a problem i have an amp of 250 watts and i was playing it yesterday and it was fine and then today i was playing it again i connected it to my lap top and it was fine....

Houses and outlets have protections called GFI. The room (or outlet) does not have to be in a wet area to be on the circuit of an GFI plug.

Get a lamp, and test the outlet. If the lamp does not light, then you know the outlet is turned off. Look for the circuit breaker box, or a tripped GFI outlet.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Iran a 220 line from breaker box im getting 110 from each side of plug but the air wont work it has one of those trip plugs

A GFI? ... Outlets in the home away from water do not require GFI protection. If this GFI outlet is over your sink ... consider moving your AC to another location. If it is away from the sink ... plug it into a non GFI protected outlet.

I have a Bosch Power Box PB10-CD, the GFI outlets clicks on/off

Disconnected the GFCI outlets, and everything works just fine. Ridiculous that Bosch manufactures GFCI outlets that does not last for 2 years. The cheepest American made GFCI outlets last practically for ever. Beeing "Bosch", the replacement outlets cost $38 plus shipping.
It is ridiculous.

It keeps tripping a GFI outlet

GFI outlets tend to wear out very quickly with a refrigerator running on them,most Manufacturers do not recommend plugging any major appliance into a GFI outlet.If you plug it into a non GFI outlet and it works fine the problem is in the outlet.

GFI outlet is tripping because of refrigerator in the garage.

Hi: Yes, replace the GFI outlet. A refrigerator should not be plugged into one for what you are experiencing and food loss. This was an easy answer for me, but unfortunately not for you The owners manual covers this, but us men don't read them (Well I had to as I worked with them for 30 years). Good luck, Jeff

Radio in bathtub keeps tripping gfi

The electrician should not have insulted you with his attitude but the GFI trips when a ground fault is detected. The water &/or steam is creating that fault path and so the Ground Fault Interrupt trips to protect you. The GFI outlet is working properly. Note that a GFI outlet is not designed to trip many, many times and sooner or later will fail to reset. BUT:

The only type of radio to be used in a wet area is a battery operated unit. Any AC voltage equipment of any type should not be used near the tub or shower.

Good Luck!
