GFI Circuit Breakers Keep Tripping

We just moved into a home built in 2014. We have three or four GFI circuit breakers in the panel box that keep tripping: if we run the vacuum cleaner, turn on a light or some times for no reason. Any suggestions?

Re: GFI Circuit Breakers Keep Tripping

Capacitor controlled motors and arching switches can cause GFCI's to trip, especially older model breakers. You can try replacing the breakers with different model.
