Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if one of my circuit breakers is actually tripped?

Circuit breakers are designed to trip in the case of an overload or short. In many cases we get call from people stating that they have checked the breakers and didn’t see any tripped. The problem is that most brands of circuit breakers don’t actually move when they are tripped. In order to know for sure you need to check each one by either gently tapping on the breaker toward the “off” position. In many cases if the breaker is tripped, it will move easily to the middle or off position. Just flip it all the way to OFF then to ON. This will reset the breaker provided the problem no longer exists. If you can’t determine if a breaker is tripped by this method, you may have to flip each breaker to OFF then back to ON until you find the one that was tripped.
