Showing No Defects, but then changing in same outlet

I purchased the newer style of this tester (correct if center light is green with no other lights), but couldn't find it on the site. I have found that at first, it will show a perfectly good outlet, but will change to read a bad ground. It does the same on outlets that are known to be wired properly. I noticed that if you don't plug it into the outlet all the way, the reading does not change. What is going on-do I have defective outlets, a hidden wiring problem, a faulty tester, or something else? Also, which is most likely to be the true reading?
Asked by: WhatIsHappening
Usually means the GFCI is tripped versus not tripped. The pattern of lights changes in any other outlets connected to the same GFCI circuit (even if the outlet you are testing doesn't have the test/reset buttons) depending on the state of the main GFCI circuit.

Does a GFCI outlet tester also work on a regular 3-prong (non-GFCI) outlet?

what is the red button for

Asked by: watty
The red button is for testing GFCI circuits. You plug the device in and then press the red button and if the GFCI is working, it will trip the circuit so that it needs to be reset. If it is tripped but wired incorrectly, the corresponding lights will light up.

Tools GFCI Outlet Tester, Green is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Unfortunately this tester proved to be defective. Like others, I too was shown "bad ground" on every outlet in my house (three levels). After returning the item, I went with a competitor product that functions, though not as "cool" looking (especially in terms of the light colors). Buyer beware until the product is either updated or pulled.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product may be ok, but company doesn't exist I had the same bad ground problem as others who posted here. That was my first clue that it might be a product problem. However, I wanted to know what triggers the "bad ground" reading so I searched in vain for any company information, tech support, online documentation to explain how the device works. Zip, zero, nada. I finally searched the model number and found the exact same product listed on Amazon being made by Sperry Instruments. The documentation there states that it has a 10 ohm ceiling for ground resistance. I will check it in some other houses and compare the results. I have to assume that CE is just a made up brand for Home Depot that is manufactured by Sperry. When I called the tech support line, it was answered as Gardner-Bender. I guess there has been some industry consolidation. I don't like buying technical products from an unknown manufacturer and I won't do it again. I will resort to alternate testing to try and confirm the ground resistance result from this device, as this was a new sub panel with a new 5/8 copper clad ground rod. I need to see if there is a problem with the ground rod or a badly calibrated outlet tester.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Fine The GFCI tester seems to work fine. Works also for testing non-GFCI circuits. Legend to interprete meaning of lights is on the device. Seems reasonably durable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT PURCHASE DEAR CE Product Expert-Ye You are confused. The model CE-HGT6120 has a green light in the middle. That is the ALL ok light. I just purchased this tester (March 2016) as a replacement for a good one that was removed from my tool bag. My tester, and as it seams many others light up the "BAD GROUND" Red light after performing a good test. I do not even want to tell you the trouble this defect has caused me. Many hours and $$$ I will never get back. SO DO NOT PURCHASE this tester until they fix it. The tester will test the GFCI correctly but then every ground will show BAD. This was tested on 3 separate, ALL wired correctly homes- with the same results- bad ground.

I purchased this Item (GFCI Tester) model MS102H to find out if I had a bad outlet.
