GFCI Nuisance Tripping


Customer has a nuisance trip.

To avoid nuisance tripping, a GFCI should not supply:

  • Circuits longer than 100 feet
  • Fluorescent or other types of electric-discharge lighting fixtures
  • Permanently installed electric motors This is a BIG one in bathrooms.  We have had more than one bathroom with this condition.

Here is a very good article concerning Nuisance Tripping.
