ground-fault circuit interrupter

can someone tell me if this is normal. I put a circut tester one that beeps
to a gfci outlet outside of my home and it did not beep and show any flow of electricity but i hooked up something to it and it works fine , is this a normal reading. i tested my garage one and it beeped like it should when current is passing. so why did the outside gfci not beep but works fine? thanks


Maybe the one outside is defective…I have seen quite a few GFCI’s that work like a normal receptacle but dont trip or trip when tested…because they are defective or in the case of older models possibly wired incorrectly.

But I would er on the side of it being defective…heck GFCI’s cost about $ 6.00 now days…just replace it…no biggie…
