GFI problem

OK, I have a GFI in the bathroom that has worked for 3 years now wihout problems. Now - problems!! It started to shut the circuit down - 1 time, then the next day 2 times and then wouldn't stay on at all. Seems to be when frig turned on however, changing that didn't work. Assumed GFI going bad - got new one and put in. It malfunctioned. Had RV tech come out and redo - after about 24 hours trouble back. Had RV tech out again - GFI working - for i day!! Decided to put Frig on other side circuit permanently. Yup in about a day the GFI was blinking a little red light and power on the circuit was gone. Any ideas?? Going to have to take in for work on it by service.

Have you been in the rain?
Any kind of moisture in the GFCI protected outlets could cause it to trip.

First make sure that nothing is plugged into any of the outlest on that string, and see if it still trips. A faulty appliance could do it.

If that does not work....
All the outlets that go dead when this trips are in series.
I would pick one in the middle of the string and disconnect it.
Now 1/2 the outlet have been removed from the circuit.
See if it still trips.
If yes, disconnect the first outlet after the GFCI, and try again.

Your trying to find out where in the string the current leak is.

You may also also have a bad ground/earth connection in the string.

Regards,

Dan

Outlet

Did you check any outside outlets. They are tied into the G.F. receptacle.

kokofriend, here is a circuit layout diagram for the Palazzo. The GFCI outlets are on "S2". Each GFCI outlet protects all STANDARD outlets downstream on the same circuit.
"Decided to put Frig on other side circuit permanently."
Interesting, which circuit did you use and how did you accomplish that?

finally had time to check everything. All outlets seem good and gfi was completely off as where all outlets on it. Finally just went back to the breaker box and fliped the gfi breaker back and forth several times and rest the gfi. Green light came on and is still on after about 40 hours. I even haven electric heater attached it for about 24 hours. Anybody know how to replace those little breaker in the box? Or where to get them?
