Question

I just moved into a house and was trying to connect a microwave to an outlet. The wall outlet is just a regular 110v outlet, but it is wired to a GFCI outlet. Everytime I try to connect the microwave (or anything else) to the regular outlet, it trips the GFCI outlet. If I connect the same item to the GFCI outlet, it works. Could the GFCI outlet be faulty? Thanks.

The GFCI that ontrols this oulet could be faulty, or the outlet itself could be faulty. I would suspect the GFCI first and replace it.

could be a bad gfci, or on other hand it could be a bad recep or wireing. since it works in the gfci im thinking its in the recep. 1 sure fire way to tell is eather buy a tester and test the gfci, or simply replace gfci. if after repalceing gfci u still have same problem replace the outlet that the gfci supplys, if u r still haveing problems post back or email me and ill help.
