This is a GFI (Ground Circuit Interrupter) Breaker. So you need to turn off the circuit breaker first. Then you need to reset the GFI (yellow button) by pressing in the button. And then turning the breaker back on. Now, with some GFI's, you need power on to reset them. So if this is the case, reset the circuit breaker by turning it off and then back on. Then press the yellow button in, and it should hold. Then you should have power restored. I hope this works for you. If not, feel free to contact me again. Good Luck!

I'd be careful with any BullDog or Pushmatic breakers. They ceased manufacturing these years ago due to problems with the contactors inside the breaker being prone to arcing and sticking (becoming "welded" together). UL and other agencies deemed them unreliable and the company decided to cease production due to several problems with installations of their products and the growing safety concerns.
If you can get a replacement breaker, I would seriously consider replacing it when you can. Otherwise, keep an eye on it, since this might fail while in the "on" position and if the contacts continue to arc, (that's symptomatic of the buzzing sound you heard), it's possible that the contacts could become "welded" together and the breaker won't trip in an overloaded circuit condition and potentially cause damage to whatever is on that circuit up to and including a situation for having a fire potential.
There is a company that is making replacement breakers under the same tradename and they are using different manufacturing techniques so as to not have the types of problems the original design could cause. Usually you can find them at most electrical supply houses and at True Value stores, depending where in the country you're located.
Hope you found this helpful and best regards!

If the lever is in the middle position, you will need to move it all the way to the off position, (towards the outside of the panel) and then back to the on position (towards the middle of the panel) If it trips again, try to turn all of the light switches of that circuit to the "off" position and try again. the arc fault breakers are designed to sense loose connections in outlets, light switches and lights. by turning the light switches off it will give you a chance to find out which sets of lights may be causing the problem. keep in mind that it could be a total accumulation of the lights (total amp draw) so if it resets and then trips, try turning on the lights in a different order.

My arc fault breaker trips in my bedroom when ever a load is put on line. The trunk line comes into a three gang switch box and feeds the entire room. At times I can turn my ceiling fan and light on for 10 to 20 minutes before the breaker trips. Other times the breaker will trip when either switch is first turned on. I plugged a 4 watt night light in a wall receptical, without the ceiling light or fan on, it also trips the breaker. I have had other plug in lamps, 60 watt, work in other recepticals for a while. The problem seems to appear in all recepticals and lighting in the room.

SOURCE: Cutler Hammer 20 Arc Fault
The circuit breaker must be turned to the "off" position first from the middle position, and then to the "on" position. The cutler hammer arc breakers carry a lifetime warranty so if it will not reset you may want to contact the manufacture.
