Can I disconnect a GFCI so that my freezer never goes off because the GFCI trips

AssuredElectrical :

Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.

AssuredElectrical :

Can you add wiring at the GFCI location to add another receptacle strictly for the freezer?

Customer:

Yes

AssuredElectrical :

Ok, what you do is this, connect your new wires to the LINE terminals on the GFCI. Leave the LOAD terminal wiring as it is and all the other receptacles will still be GFCI protected for tools etc.

AssuredElectrical :

The appliance is not required to be on a GFCI but any toher receptacle for tools etc are required.

Customer:

Excellent - Thanks!
