Gas Dryer and Washing machine on another (regular) breaker and I added and outlet style GFCI. Only tested so far the gas dryer. It seems fine.
I thought GFCI didn't trip via the draw of current but only on detection of current leakage. But I guess you've seen this before and experience greater by far than mine. So I guess I'll just change out that outlet. It's a bit confusing from what I thought I understood...
Just to finish on the same discussion, looks like something happened to this freezer. It's a GE No Frost ... (got to get behind it to get the model number I think) though some numbers were on a door sticker. When plugged into a regular outlet, it seems to do nothing. Is it possibly shorted out? Maybe it needs a real appliance guy, but before going there I though I'd explore fully here.
Wow there's a cool answer! That's why I can't do this on my own! I will try that and let you know. Can't try it until much later today when I'm at that residence. I will let you know for sure.
