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.

Can i make a 40 amp circuit breaker with two 20 amp breakers?


Yes. A two-pole breaker is just two breakers hooked together. But the very important part is that if one pole trips THEY MUST BOTH TRIP. If only one trips, then the circuit won't operate the appliance (whatever it is) but one of the poles will still be live!

How to reset Culter Hammer GFCB115


Hi Tenny,

I'm an electrician and can help with this problem. First, did you just install this breaker - or was it working before? If you installed it - skip down to the end.

If it was working before, I can tell you that resetting a GFCB115 is the same as any other "regular" circuit breaker in the panel:

1) Clear the source of the fault.

2) Push the breaker handle from the "Tripped" (or mid) position to "Off"

3) Push the breaker handle from "Off" to "On"

That's it. Most times, people skip #1 and go right to #2. If the breaker handle fails to remain in the "On" or immediately moves to the "Tripped" position after or during a reset operation, one of two things is wrong: 1) The breaker is defective. This does not happen that often - but it does happen now and then. 2) The offending load has not been cleared. This is more likely to be the case. Start by trying to isolate the source of the fault which many times is the most recent device connected to an outlet. One by one, unplug the devices on the circuit and power up to see if the breaker "holds" the load without tripping. Once it holds, it is a safe bet that this last device is the source of the problem. Reinsert all the plugs back into the outlets - except the last one. If the breaker is still holding, the device that was left unplugged is probably the culprit and will need to be checked out before connecting again. It is NOT advised to simply use the device on a non-GFCI protected circuit. There is probably an issue with the device - and it will be present on the non-GFCI circuit that could result in shock, burns or loss of life.

Keep in mind, most GFCI circuit breakers will trip when a ground fault or a current overload is detected. There is no distinction or indication if the breaker tripped due to one condition or the other. If it has tripped due to overload, clearing the fault is done by simply reducing the load on the circuit. Once the load is reduced, the breaker will reset normally.

If you just installed it and it won't work, tell me how you connected it to the panel and how you connected the circuit to it.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Try reseting it by unplugging it. Also is there any display lights on (troubles). If that dont work it might have fried the circuit board in the black out.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

LD3600WV MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER


I'm not sure what your question is - since all you did was put in a model number of a circuit breaker.

If you need to reset this circuit breaker: 1) Slide the handle to the OFF position. 2) Slide all the other breakers in the panel to the OFF position. 3) Stand to the side (not directly in front of the panel) 4) Slide the handle of the main breaker to the ON position. if it trips, there is a majot fault that should be addressed by a qualified person (electrician).

If the main breaker does not move to the TRIP or OFF position: 1) One by one, starting with the double wide / large value circuit breakers, slide the handles to ON. 2) Any breaker that goes to TRIPPED or OFF should be attempted to be reset ONCE. If it trips again, an electrician should be called, and the breaker left in the TRIPPED or OFF position. 3) One by one, return the handles of the remaining circuit breakers to ON.

If you're looking for different information - please provide as much detail as you can. Include the breaker panel manufacturer's name and model - and the circuit breaker data.

I have a square D breaker with shunt trip. The breaker keeps tripping so how do I check the breaker?


A shunt trip breaker operation.

It works just like a normal circuit breaker with one additional function. A shunt-trip breaker also has a built-in magnetic coil that can be energized externally to trip the breaker.


So what is wired to the shunt that is not letting the breaker reset?

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!

Dryer trips circuit breaker smell almost like something burning coming from dryer


In order to trip a circuit breaker, there is almost for sure, a dead short to ground. Takes quite a bit to trip a breaker. The smell is most likely something electrical burning. Stop resetting the breaker and have it checked out. Continous resetting and tripping can cause more damage. The breaker is doing it's job.

3-pole 60 Amp Circuit Breaker is tripped and won't reset.


When this breaker tripped, it did not go fully to off. Push the breaker all the way off and then all the way to on. It should be fine. If not manually push it to full off once again and then back on. If both attempts fail the breaker will have to be replaced. good luck.
