Jet 1642 HELP

John Packett
>I've lurked here for a long time but this is my 1st post. Not a turner yet but decided to take the plunge. Picked up my new 1642 last weekend and put it together today. Everything went well until I pluged it in and started it. It trips the GFI. The same GFI circuit works well with a CSMS, table saw, or planer, and other tools. I ran an ext. cord and tried it on a non GFI and it works fine. One other thing, with it plugged in and turned off the display reads zero. Is it normal for the display to be on 24/7 with the lathe turned off but plugged in.

Thanks for any help you can give.
