Hello Larry, my name is***** welcome to Just Answer/ Pearl, I will try to answer your electrical question today.
I will quickly look up your model number , but my first question is was this an active circuit before you installed the GFi and did you wire both conductors( black and white) to the "line" side screws of the receptacle?
When you say "wrong" what do you mean, wired to load side screws instead of line , or hot and white wire reversed ? It's possible that the device is faulty , if you wire to the load side but hot and neutral were wired correctly to their respective screws then it would still function unless it was defective from the factory.
