Square D circuit breaker in a home fuse panel and I have already replaced the breaker with a new one.


i strongly recommend that you get in an electrician to investigate the problem
from your description of the amount of power required from your circuit breaker I would consider that there are to power wires from the back of that unit
one circuit to run half the points and another wire to run the rest
If only 1/2 are working, I am thinking that one of the wires at the back of the breakers is loose or come undone/broken and that will require the services of an electrician
To further explain this line of thought, each circuit in a house is designed to carry a maxim of 10 amp total (wire current capacity) so that with all outlets in operation the maximum current is 10 amps
if the required current allowed exceeds that the electricians break the numbers up so that a second circuit is employed again up to 10 amps max
if again there was a requirement that exceeded the 20 amps ( circuit breaker amp) a second circuit breaker would be installed and a 3rd circuit and so on

Curcuit Breaker appears to be on but no power?


It sounds like something in that circuit is causing the overload. Disconnect anything that is in that circuit, flip the breaker, and one item at a time plug whatever was on that circuit back in until it trips again. Then try that item in a different circuit and see if it does the same thing. It could also be that the breaker is worn out and is tripping at a lower point that it supposed to. In that case you would have to replace the breaker.

How to reset a cutler hammer HMCP E Breaker


Well, you should first - stand off to the side (not in front of any electrical panel, or device) when re-energizing a circuit breaker/switch, etc... Use your off hand, not your dominant hand when doing this. Reason is, if the breaker/switch blows up or out - and it happens to burn your hand (hopefully not...) - you will still have your good hand to work and get around with. Also, look away when doing this too - which will protect your eyes and face. This is why you DON'T stand in front of these electrical devices when turning them ON. Now, stand off to the side of this breaker/switch - look away, and using your less dominant hand - first turn the breaker/switch OFF (listen and feel for it to click in the OFF position)...then, turn the breaker/switch back ON. This should re-energize the breaker! If it trips again, then leave it in the TRIP position - and ask for further help. You'll need an experienced electrician to troubleshoot the problem. On this particular breaker - the two 40amp breakers are together, and the two 30amp breakers on the outside are together. When turning these OFF, and back ON...turn the two 40amp breakers OFF together, then back ON - and do the same to the two outside 30amp breakers as well. What you have here is what they call a Quad Breaker (4poles/circuits - which take up two spots in your electrical panel). So, you have a 2 pole/circuit...240 volt/40amp breaker - inside of a; 2 pole/circuit...240 volt/30amp breaker. This is most likely running a dryer and a range. Either way, SAFETY FIRST! I hope your problem is just a tripped circuit breaker! Also, make sure whatever you are trying to re-energize again - is ALL OFF!!! If your breaker trips again, disconnect ALL appliances involved - and then try it one more time! If it trips again, then call a licensed/certified electrician! Best of Luck to You...:)

Electrical problem,nno power to two 3 way switches and one outlet


First are they normal breakers or are they GFI breakers? If they are normal then odds are one you have a short on the output of the breaker or perhaps the wires on the output of the breaker are loose. You also might want to check the boxes behind all of the effected items (switches and outlet). There could be a loose connection behind them. If they are GFI breakers then you either have a bad breaker or a bad ground on the output of the breaker. GFI's sense bad grounds this is what protects you. I'm not sure if the idiot light breakers light only if there is power available to them or if they only light if there is power flowing through them. If it is the fore then I say you have a high power draw on the output, most likely a short if it is blowing the breaker. If the breaker is not blowing then you have a loose connection or bad connection. Get this fix quickly either way because it can cause a fire.

Blown circuit breaker will not reset and lock into position


Replace the breaker. You could switch it with another same rating just to see if that is the problem.

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!

A hager b6 fuse has blown - normally the switch flips off and you push the switch back to on and power is restored - here the switch is limp and wont stay in the on position - i cannot see how you remove...


I have just done this myself and without blowing myself up.
1. Tools needed will be a torch and a philips screwdriver
2. Switch off your mains.
3. Check your mains are off
4. On the fuse itself they are two screws. One above the hager sign and one below. Unscrew these. The top screw keeps the wire in from the mains and bottom screw is to keep fuse screwed to the actual fuse box
5. You should be able to remove your fuse now
6. On your new fuse there will be a white piece at the back. Pull that down
7. When the fuse is removed you will see the wire which is now free and on the bottom a plug which is where your new fuse slots in.
8. Slot your new fuse on the plug and tighten the bottom screw.
9. Put your wire in place on the top of the fuse and tighten the top screw.
10. Switch your new fuse on the "on" position.
11. Put back your cover on your fuse box
12. Switch your mains back on.

First switch off the power at the main breaker or pull the meter from the meter socket. If you flip off the main breaker and it is mounted in the same breaker panel, just be aware that the wires above the breaker are still hot. Connect the white wire to the neutral bar, the green wire to the ground bar, and the black wire to the breaker. Then tilt the breaker to get the front black lug under the bar and push the back of the breaker onto the lug on the bus bar.
