last year i replaced all the electrical outlets in the condo my wife and i have. there is a GFI in the kitchen that is hooked in with 5 outlets. the circuit breaker for that circuit when turned on will not trip but the GFI does without anything plugged into 4 of the 5 outlets. the 5th outlet has a floor lamp plugged into it that works just fine. i would imagine that socket is before the GFI. because the GFI just started tripping all the time. yesterday it would trip and i would reset it and it would be ok for a while then would trip again. today it will not reset at all. my question is.... is it possible the GFI is bad? apparently there is not a short in that circuit anywhere because the floor lamp still works.
