Replacement 15A circuit breaker does not work

When the replacement breaker (that lights the kitchen) is flipped on, the kitchen light flickers but does not stay on.

    Thanks for the quick response. Let me be more specific.



    When the breaker is flipped, the kitchen light does flicker, however, none of the electricity that is provided by that breaker works.



    The outlets do not provide electricity. None of lights are working.



    Thanks

If the light is a flouresent light more than likely the ballast is bad. Very simple to replace but make sure power is of..Very common problem.

    I the breaker is new try checking to make sure it is secure in the box. If you have a voltmeter you need to check to see if you have power at the breaker between the line and ground. If there is power then you have a open wire between the breaker and the source which is the outlets and lights. Check the first things first. Hope this helps you find problemotherwise you may need to get an electrician out.

Each outlet receives power from previous outlet box or switch box in a long chain of parallel wiring back to ceiling box, or junction box, and then back to circuit breaker.
Use process-of-elimination to find problem.
Locate all boxes on same circuit breaker. Locate box before the two dead boxes... it can be in ceiling light, or switch box, or outlet box. Then test those wires. Look for loose quick connect where wires are pushed into hole on back of device, or loose white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box.

Plastic clips that hold breaker in broke off


1) If this is for main breaker, then replacement is only option.

2) If this is for 120V or 240V breaker, then move breakers around so you can make space by adding tandem breaker(s) if available.

3) You can also make space by doubling lesser used circuit onto one breaker, making sure that 14 gauge wire goes on size 15A breaker and 12 gauge wire goes on 20A breaker.

How many lights or ceiling fans can I hook up to one 15a single pole circuit breaker.


First of all, are there any other appliances or lights on this circuit? If so, they must be included in the total wattage for the circuit. The fan units are either listed with the Amp rating or wattage rating (Volt Amp) VA. The total amperage allowed on a 15 A circuit is 12A.(80% of the total per NEC). The total wattage would be 1380 watts. ( 115 Volt single phase X 15A = 1725 watts, 1725 x 80% = 1380 watts)

Power must be reaching the stove for the lights to work so it would seem something has gone wrong inside the stove. Only exposing the internal connections and testing the circuits will trace the fault.

My dry quite working after my was work in electric box he was flipping power on and off


Your dryer is a 220 appliance and should be on a circuit all by itself. Are the items in your circuit box labeled (Lights? kitchen, etc.) One should be labeled "dryer". If you cannot locate one that is labeled for your dryer, Check out the position of the circuit breakers. If the dryer breaker is turned off it will be in the oppoite postion of the others.Caution: DO NOT do what he did and begin flipping breakers! If your dryer breaker is in the off position,is you should be able to flip it back on. Before you do this, have the dryer turned off.

If this does not work, unplug your dryer and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes or so, so that the dryers' operating system can reset itself. Then try turning it back on.

Had been having trouble with one or two burners, then today oven heating element was out and none of burners work although surface indicator light goes on, and circuit breaker has not flipped.


did you reset you circuit breaker by shutting it off all the way and flipping it back on? try it. some times a breaker will only trip partiallly.

or its possible you have a bad connection where the power cord hooks up to the range

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light


Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.

Clock and lights work but burners and oven will noy heat turn on


Your wire connection from service panel to stove is corroded. It needs replacement. Check the length of the wires (three: two hots, and one neutral). Turn the breaker off first. Call me at at 757-454-2358 if you need anymore help. I don't get online often, so you need to call if you want anything clarify.
