GFCI tripping

Hi,

I noticed that one of GFCI outlets in the bathroom trips occasionally. I am wondering what might be the cause of it. I think most of the time it happens when I try to turn the lights on. I assume they are on the same circuit with GFCI. Some other electrical stuff (Jacuzzi, for example) never trip GFCI, because it is on different circuit.

What, generally, might cause GFCI tripping? What is the best way to trace the root cause?

If the GFCI receptacle is more than a few years old, replace it. GFCI receptacles do eventually wear out.
