Why would a GFI blink red

Red Status

  • Blinking = Initial self-test upon first power up
  • Solid or blinking = Press TEST and RESET buttons to reset GFCI
  • If GFCI will not reset OR solid or blinking red continues, replace device

    This looks like the right answer, but for the good of the site, its better to mark this one as a duplicate rather than adding another answer here.
