A question for the electricians on this BB:
I have a track light that will not work with a GFCI enabled circuit. No
issues if I take the light bulbs out of the sockets. If I replace either
bulb or both bulbs the GFCI blows as soon as the switch is thrown. If I
place the track light onto a non-GFCI circuit all is fine. Of course, the
GFCI circuit is now fine as well.
Maybe the GFCI is trying to tell you something- like there's a ground
fault/ short in the circuit. I would check the connections throughout
that track light circuit, from where you connect it to GFCI to the
fixture end. Have you tried plugging it with extension cord to a
different GFCI?- just to confirm that the problem is with track light
part of the circuit.
I don't know why you have it on a GFCI protected circuit, so this is
just a guess.
I would take it off of it, if I couldn't I would then wonder if the
GFCI is 'too sensitive'. I was told as GFCI circuitry failed, it
failed 'safer', tripping a lot.
