    Default ungrouded GFCI test

    I have an older home with a mix of grounded and ungrounded outlets. In the bathroom, there is an ungrounded outlet with a GFCI receptacle. Should it trip with a GFCI outlet tester? it does trip with the test button and resets ok
    Regards

    An ungrounded GFCI will trip with the built in test button, but not with the test button of a plugin tester.

    It's supposed to have a little sticker on it that says "No Equipment Ground", for what that's worth.
