I plugged in my wet vac in my GFI and it worked. I hit the test button and the wet vac turns off. When the wet vac shut off, I used my tick tracer, non-voltage contact tester, and put it in the hot slot and it went off. I then used my meter, black in the common slot, red in the hot slot, it showed 120v when on, hitting the reset button, Zero volts when I hit off, the Test button. I did the same with another GFI hooked to a different line/circuit breaker and got the same results. Why does it show voltage with the tick tracer?
