Like Grant said check those line bypass caps. I have a 500 A, they
are still present, and I don't have any trouble. I use a 3 wire
cord on mine.
If you don't mind, why are your using a GFI? Around here the code
only require them within 3 ft. of a water source. Sometimes RF can
give them fits as well. So if you aren't violating code, I would
remove the GRI and put in a standard socket. First you might get a
long extension cord and try it in a standard socket to see what
happens. If it opens a circuit breaker, then find out why.
Have fun and live it up.
