Installed two Leviton GFCIs yesterday, each one for that outlet only, not
protecting anything else downstream. One works just fine. The other one
doesn't: it resets OK and powers up, plug-in circuit tester shows it's wired
correctly, test button _on_the_plug-in_tester_ trips the GFCI, it resets OK,
but the test button on the GFCI itself does *not*
trip it. Cycled through this
repeatedly, with no change in behavior.
Took the misbehaving one back to the retailer and exchanged it. Installed the
replacement: identical behavior.
Swapped it with the other GFCI to see if the problem would follow the unit,
or stay with the box. *Both*
units work properly.
Speculations as to what's going on? I'm at a complete loss to explain this.
