Fairly new less than one month old Eaton 20a gfci breaker to trip with nothing but the white common coil attached. Meaning the breaker is in the main box with no load circuit connected. Meaning I pulled the wires off and pushed to the side.
Back story called out on a service call pool motor down. The original breaker would not reset with or without the load remove hots pushed aside it wouldn’t reset so installed new Eaton breaker checked for motor operation, dead short bad motor. Installed new motor powered up fired up all is well.
Two weeks later return call motor down. I go out try the tripped breaker immediately trips check wiring at motor all is well no shorts, remove hots from new breaker try to reset breaker no load nothing but coiled common attached no go..... it immediately trips.
I’m stumped defective breaker?
