Gfci pops


I installed a bathroom exhuast fan,I thought it would be a good idea to install a gfci with the on/off switch ,the fan works ok but when you turn off the fan the gfci pops ,my source of power for the bathroom fan is the attic fan

IS the fan protected by the GFI? If so, it not required to be GFI protected unless it is mounted over the shower or tub. Could be caused by the motor. Could be defective GFI. Check wiring.
