    I fixed it myself. I asked a friend who advised me that you have to sometimes WAIT 15 or 20 minutes before turning the switch to the on position.
    nobody mentioned that to me.

Disconnect the black wire and try to reset it. Either the circuit has a short in it or the breaker is bad. At any rate, get it checked out by a licensed electrician.

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!

Why does the 30 amp circuit breaker behind the battery box on my 1990 fatboy click once when i push the ignition button? The bike won't start.


Try to reset the circuit breaker. also check for an earth fault on the starter motor .If this is not a circuit breaker and is a relay, you should make sure everything is ready for a start, (ie : in neutral, sidestand up and clutch in and that the battery is charged.) the neutral light being "on" doesn't mean it is in neutral. I hope this helps.

THere is no electricity in the bedrooms and I can't get them back on?


If the circuit breaker will not reset - all the way off and then back on with a click sound. Then something you have plugged into the outlets in those rooms is probably shorted causing an over current condition. If the circuit breaker won't reset, shut off all lights and then unplug EVERYTHING and then see if it will reset. If it does, then replug everything one at a time until the electricity goes off again, that is the bad apple.But if it won't reset, then your breaker is probably bad. Yes, they do go bad, just infrequently.

Plug a light into the outlet used for the A/C, if the light does not come on when reset then the circuit breaker that provided the power to the outlet need to be reset or replaced.
