SOURCE: My Eaton 20 amp Arc fault breaker tripped during a

Has this problem been corrected yet? If so, great! If not, contact me and I'll help you out. In most cases with these circuit breakers, they need to be reset first (press in the yellow button). And then turn off the circuit breaker, and turn it back on. They're a little temperamental (pain in the neck)! This should allow everything to go back into its original order. Good Luck with this, and feel free to contact me again if this solution hasn't corrected it yet. - Jim

If you disconnect the load wires on the breaker and it will not reset, the breaker has a fatal flaw.

IF the breaker ONLY fails to reset with the load wires connected EITHER there is a wrong connection like servicing a shared neutral 3 wire cable from the breaker, or there is an electrical fault OR there is interference from a source that couples radio-like noise onto the wires to this.

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!
