    But. The GFCI will only trip under 2 conditions: When there is a power overload beyond the amp
    range of the breaker (this in not happening).And when there is a milliamp leakage current from
    either hot...

    Since you say it only happens at boil it makes me think it's happening when the ssr goes from
    on all the time to suddenly switching on and off. And in duty cycle mode it's more of a pwm

    mode (20% and 60% manual power) and had the same problem with any of those options. Do you
    think it has a...

    honestly, i'm not sure. My electrician family friend had this element (which is a steam table
