It was an old fridge. I just replaced it with a brand new fridge. The new fridge is tripping the GFI too.if its an older fridge its going bad. has your bill seemed to be going up over the last few months? the gfi could be going out and is easy to replace on your own. i would try running a could to another outlet not in the garage and see if it holds. hope that helps
Thanks. Sounds like replacing the GFI is my project for the day.I have been a licensed electrician for 40 years so kind of know what I'm talking about . GFCI outlets fail, it's common. Even new out of the box sometimes. What do you expect for ~$8? I'd replace it and see what happens. Also, did this just start happening when all this hard rain showed up? Some are more sensitive to moisture in the air than others.
