I too have also had a couple GFCI outlets go bad but I think that they would not reset when they did go bad. Except that last year, I had one almost start a fire. I started smelling burning rubber and when I reached unplug stuff, I realized that the GFCI was really hot but never tripped. When I pulled it out of the wall, it was badly burned and melted. Dodged a bullet.
