SOURCE: craftsman garage door opener trips the GFCI

When garage doors get sticky, bent, and the chain needs lube they will trip the controls. A door may suddenly reverse for no apparent reason, that is friction. A GFCI is real sensitive to load. Also check the wiring to the unit. Any bad connection will upset the GFCI. Check all the way back to the breaker box, sometimes the screws on the wires need to be tightened.

SOURCE: I have an electrical circuit in my home that

They put the GFI in line at the front, all the other plugs run off it. One of the other plugs, has lost ground, has lost neutral, a simple plug in tester will tell you this, find the fault, or,, you have a fluorescent bulb plugged into it. The gfi's are very sensitive, they snap at the drop of the barometer.

The gfci test button doesnt work. The green light is on but reset button doesn't work.


....When multiple GFCI outlets on the same circuit, tripping one usually trips all others. You have to start with the first GFCI closest to the breaker box and work your way down stream.....Verify all breakers are reset. Check all GFCI's everywhere you have one to see if one is tripped. If so .... Reset it. IF not ..............

It's broke ............ Call an electrician.

Tip

Wiring a GFIC alternative.


When wiring a GFCI (Ground Fault Interrupter Circuit) receptacle you would normally connect the wire coming from the service panel or the hot wire to the LINE connection at the GFCI and then connect the other receptacles you wish to protect to the LOAD side on the GFCI. But let's say you have installed a GFCI in a garage circuit and want to run a wire to the garage door opener from that circuit without the garage door opener receptacle being protected by the GFCI but still want all other receptacles protected. Reason being that the garage door opener will trip the GFCI more often than not. You may also want to have a receptacle for a freezer in the garage. You do not want that freezer protected by the GFCI circuit as it may trip without your knowledge and cause all the food to spoil. Warning: Only install a single plug receptacle for the freezer and not a double plug receptacle. That way only one thing, the freezer, can be plugged into this receptacle as it is not GFCI protected. The way to avoid the breaker tripping is to connect the garage door opener & freezer receptacle to the LINE side of the GFCI. This way it is not protected by the GFCI and there is no danger of that receptacle loosing power due to a tripped breaker on the GFCI. When the GFCI trips power will still be available at any receptacle connected on the line side. On any GFCI you can connect two sets of wires to the LINE side. If you have more than two you will have to connect those together under a wire nut and then use a jumper wire to connect to the LINE on the GFCI. Look at the photo and you will see the 2 sets of holes to connect at the LINE side (Bottom) on the back of the GFCI receptacle. There are also 2 sets of holes to connect on the LOAD side (Upper). Of course you would use a wire nut and jumper to connect all the ground wires.8dd2149.png

My tub keeps tripping the breaker, but after it kools down I can trip the breaker back on, but it hits 100 and trips the breaker again, could this be the heater?


What Trips?
  • the "Actual" electrical circuit breaker?
    • Is it GFCI Style?
or...
  • Is the high limit switch tripping?,
    • which isn't actually a breaker.
  • A circuit breaker is a breaker that toggles as a switch, and to reset it you have to switch the toggle switch ALL the way to Off position to reset, then switch it to on.
    • Same thing if it were a GFCI style, it just has a 'Test' button on the body of the breaker, that button is usually a white rectangular button.
  • Some systems have a GFCI breaker that looks totally differnent from above... It's located on the control system itself, very similar to what you may have in your bathroom or kitchen of your home! It will have a 'Test' button AND a 'Reset' button.
A High Limit Switch, acts like a breaker, as it will trip when it senses a temperature greater that it is set for as a safe temperature. Once that temp is breached, it will trip.

So... Which one is tripping for you? What are you resetting to turn it back on?
if circuit breaker, it has nothing to do with the 100 degree temp you mentioned. If that trips,= electrical problem, either a short or overheated electrical appliance (internal wires) aging motor pulling too much current, loose electrical connections generate heat, etc.
if High Limit, then possible overheat of water? Many times, failed thermostat. I already know what you're thinking... But I never saw water get Hot! But... Many times that IS just the case , it's just you never noticed the water hot, and it has been cooling down when you saw it.

My hydroquip 9000 trips the gfci when it starts now. the heater,pump,blower and everything was working fine till the power went out. when the power came on the spa didn't work? there is a reset button on...


If the GFCI is tripping, the reset button will not do anything. If it was fine before the electricity shut off, it is possible that while the pump was not running, water got into the inside of the pack, and that is what is causing the GFCI to trip. An electrical surge may have damaged the GFCI, itself. Those are the two things that might be related to the power going out.
The most common cause for tripping GFCI's are a heater that has a ground fault. A distant second is a bad GFCI. If it starts to run, then quickly trips, it is almost certainly the heater.

MY JETS WONT TURN ON


The threaded knob should not be related to the problem, it just controls how much air gets mixed into the water jets. One possibility is that the electricity is off. These tubs should receive power through a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) type of circuit breaker for your protection from electrical shock. Check your circuit breaker panel(s) for a breaker with a little square white or yellow "test" button. Refer to the label (if it is there) to see if it refers to "tub" or "spa" or "bath" or something like that. You may have to turn the breaker handle off (push extra hard to make it reset) and then back on again. If the breaker handle is in the "on" position and the "test" button does not "trip it off," call an electrician. If no luck there, check the bathroom for an electrical outlet with GFCI protection, again looking for white or yellow (or red) buttons - one should be engraved "test" and the other "reset" as the electrician (I hope it was an electrician) may have supplied the tub from this outlet (not actually up to code). Plug an appliance or light into the outlet. If it doesn't work, push the reset button on the outlet and test again. If working, now test the spa. If that doesn't work, test every other GFCI outlet you can find - in the kitchen, other baths, garage, outdoors, basement, etc. using the same testing procedure. If you find a GFCI breaker or outlet "tripped" that restores the tub, that indicates there is something wrong with your electrical system that could cause you to get electrocuted, and requires that you hire a qualified electrician to investigate the problem. The same is true for any GFCI outlet that does not "trip" and/or "reset." If this doesn't fix the tub, the problem may not be electrical but some other problem with the system, indicating a plumber or spa tech may need to be consulted. Note: these GFCI breakers and outlets are supposed to be tested and reset once every month. How many of us do that? Well, at least as often as we test our smoke detectors, I suppose.

look for 2 things. 1. the GFCI button on the plug, you may have to press the 'reset' button to turn it on. 2. there may be a reset button on the motor or the unit somewhere this will usually be round, and often red, but maybe black also. hope this helps

What is a GFCI Receptacle?


A special type of receptacle called a GFCI (or GFI), short for ground-fault circuit interrupter, protects kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor receptacles in a home from the serious shock that can occur where electricity and water meet. Identified by the reset and test buttons located on its face, a GFCI will sense even a tiny short and will shut down itself and, in some cases, other receptacles on the same circuit. Just push the reset button to reset the receptacles. Push the test button periodically to insure that the device is working.
