I have an electrically powered Drop-shade that is hot-wired to the load side terminals of my GFCI. The GFCI is a dedicated circuit there are no other outlets daisy chained to this GCFI.
It worked fine for a month or two then fails and is not able to Reset. The Reset button can be depressed but does not give that detente click but just springs back.
I have had 2 of these GFI's fail. I called Levaton they said the load terminals cannot be used to connect a direct load but only are there to connect downstream non gfci outlets that need gf protection. This seems counter intuitive as any load connected to a downstream outlet is directly connected to the load terminals on the parent GFCI.
Maybe there's something else in play that I don't know about but if I replace the non-functioning GFCI with a new one it probably will be like watching the same movie again and i am hoping for a different ending.
