If the circuit breaker as tripped ,how do I get it to untripp it


If the fault that caused the breaker to trip still exists, it will not reset. Unplug any devices from the circuit in question and reset the breaker. Then plug in items one at a time until you find the device that is causing the breaker to trip. Then fix or replace. You may also have a bad breaker that needs to be replaced if it will not reset even with all devices off the circuit.

LAst night we lost two rooms completely light and outlets. we try the reset the breaker nothing would come on. This morning we unplug everything turned on the breaker, and plug everything back in...


1) A circuit breaker will not reset if breaker is hot, or if there is a short to ground.

2) Hot breaker: If circuit is pulling more amps than the breaker rating, or if breaker is loose on the busbar, then breaker gets hot, and trips.
3) Volts x amps = watts. Add up wattage of everything on breaker and divide by 120Volts and that gives you amps.
If your breaker is 15 amps, the SAFE maximum is 80% or 12 amps.

4) If breaker is loose, you can smell burning and hear crackling sound. Jiggle the breaker around and listen for crackling.

5) If there was a short somewhere on the breaker circuit, the breaker will trip.
When you unpluged each device and then the breaker was reset, then that says problem is probably NOT the wiring or breaker.
The problem was probably inside one of the devices that was plugged in.

6) If breaker trips again, unplug each device one at a time, and then try to reset breaker after each unplug to see if you can isolate suspected device.

How do I reset a Eaton breaker with a tester on it?


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!

Breaker wont push back in


it is still detecting an overload in the circuit. Take the black wire off the breaker and see if it will reset. If so then you will have to trace the wires down to find the short circuit. If it doesn't reset then the breaker is bad

20amp breaker tripped unexpectly tonight. tried resetting at panel but won't click all the way over and little red indicator also on the breaker


Hello, In order to reset circuit breakers that have tripped under load, you must first flip the breaker all the way OFF, before you can then turn the breaker back ON. This should reset the breaker to turn the power back on to the circuit supplied by this breaker.

The red indicator is just there to make it easier to find the tripped breaker. Typically, the red indicator flag is a special feature of Square D QD breakers and panels.

If the breaker immediately trips again and doesn't stay on, then the device it is providing power to, still has a fault and it needs to be looked at to determine what is causing the fault and the tripping of the breaker.

Be sure to turn the breaker OFF if you are going to check the device for potential problems.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Circuit Breakers Comparison


A circuit breaker is an automatically-operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overload or short circuit. Unlike a fuse, which operates once and then has to be replaced, a circuit breaker can be reset (either manually or automatically) to resume normal operation.
