If you rewire a GFCI outlet so that the downstream outlets are no longer GFCI protected (move the two upper wires down to attach to the same terminals as the lower two wires), then if there is still a GFCI circuit interruption downstream, will the light on the GFCI be illuminated, even though the circuit still provides electricity downstream? I have done this and the power stays on downstream, but the light illuminates and the GFCI trips internally. The load down stream is a refrigerator and a freezer in the garage.
There are two holes for each terminal connection. I moved the wires from the load to the line so to eliminate the GFCI capability downstream so that the refrigerator in the garage would not trip the GFCI. The GFCI still trips as the refrigerator is still connected thru the new downstream connections, but the power is not disconnected.
