If not a loose wire buy a new one and give that a try.

After a GFI breaker pops a couple times, the spring weakens. Replace the breaker. Cheap component.

Can be what you're using on it, too. Some things you use in the bathroom are "leaky", such as some razors with vibrator motors, hair and beard trimmers, that sort of thing. Will trip GFIs.

The most obvious answer is that there is something on that circuit that actually has a ground fault. Don't just assume that the GFCI is defective. Look at whatever is plugged into the outlets controlled by that GFCI. Unplug any that you can to see if the tripping problem goes away. If the fridge is on that circuit, put it in LP mode for awhile - the electric heater element on a fridge in AC mode is a fairly common cause of GFCI trips. Some converter/chargers have been known to cause it as well.
