Showing No Defects, but then changing in same outlet

This question is from Tools GFCI Outlet Tester - Green
February 20, 2016
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?

Answer: 
I bought two of these testers and it only does it on one of them. You have a defective unit. I am trying to find out how to get it replaced under warranty as I believe it has a 12-month warranty.

Answer: 
Dear Customer, our tester has RED and YELLOW lights only. I have no idea where the green lights came from. Base on your statement, it should be a hidden wiring problem. Thank you and have a great day.

Answer: 
It will work on any three wire 120 VAc outlet. The test button only works to test a GFCI outlet. The button is moot on all other outlets. I have not seen any green lights on this device.

Answer: 
No, a GFCI tester injects a small current (slightly more than 5mA) between the neutral and the ground wire at which point the GFCI should trip and need to be reset.

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A small tool every home owner should have. This is a small tool every home owner , electrician or DIY should have. The Commercial Electric GFCI Receptacle Tester. is not only GFCI tester but also is designed to detect the most common wiring problems in standard receptacles. The tester can detect conditions such as correct wiring , open ground, reverse polarity, open hot, open neutral and hot/ground reversed etc. I had this from my local Home Depot, and it never failed, and it is a very useful product. July 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 25, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by "Agree with last review, If you are going to leave a review make sure it's for the right model.
