    I guess I missed out on that one.

    I do know that a GFI for an appliance is different than a Personal Protective GFI.

    Personal Protective GFIs trip in the 5 MA or so range

    and Appliance GFIs trip at around 30 MA.


    If you run a appliance on a Personal Protective GFI, You are Very Lucky if it Does Not Trip on occasion.


    If You really want to be 100% safe, Turning OFF the Main Breaker works much better than anything...

    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.
