GFCI Question

The three outlets in my garage are protected with a GFCI circuit.
I run a freezer in the garage. The freezer trips the ground fault occasionally when it turns on.
Do outlets in the garage have to have GFCI protection?
Is it common that a freezer will trip the GFCI when it turns on?
I can make two of the outlets GFCI and the third (the one that has the freezer plugged in) non-GFCI.
Thanks!

Greetings,

Yes. Except ...

You can install a single non-GFCI receptacle for dedicated appliances.
Hope this helps, William

Actually there will two outlets now. One for the freezer and one on the ceiling for the garage door opener.
