You have a weak breaker. The light(120 volts) is working off the good side of the breaker. Replace the breaker in the circuit panel to solve your problem.

Generator will not stay running


The toggle switch automatically resets all faults when it is turned to the off position. I would turn the toggle switch off, turn off the breaker on the generator and then turn off all the loads in the house except a few lights. Turn the generator breaker back on, then turn the toggle switch back to automatic. If it starts and stays running, you were overloading the generator. Turn on other loads slowly and keep track of what is on so you don't overload it again. If it still does not stay on, you may have a problem with the panel. Let me know what happens.

I triped my breaker that controlled the unit and reset breaker but of the 2 green lights the one on the left is blinking unit power on but doesnt stay on for but a few miniutes please advise the unit...


Please don't try again and again. The breaker tripping is an indication of fault in your a/c.

Check indoor and out door for loose contacts.If anything, rectify. Check blower motor, fan motor and compressor for grounding. Check with an ohms meter, keep one end with any tewrminal and second with ground. If anything reading even 00.00, it's grounding. The particular spare/s to be replaced. Call repairman to check, if you're not aware of it. Thanks.

Can a circuit breaker fail? There is no power in my daughters room, but the circuit breaker seems to be fine. It doesn't reset or fix the problem.


Make sure to click breaker completely over to one side and then click all the way back to reset.

Yes, breakers go bad.

You can check your breaker in a simple way.

Turn main breaker OFF.
Mark daughter's breaker.
Take cover off breaker box.
The main breaker will still have power on the lugs where big wires connect.
Rest of box will have no power.
Notice that each 120 volt breaker has a wire connected to end of breaker.
Use screwdriver and tighten this wire.
If screw is already tight, then loosen screw and pull wire out, and move wire to another breaker marked with same amperage. For example if daughter's breaker is 20, then move wire to another 20. Now there will be two wires connected to that breaker.
Turn power ON and see if daughter's room is restored.
This set up will work fine until you have time to replace breaker with same brand as marked on breaker box, usually available at home center (if available).

If power is not restored by moving wire, then there is a loose wire inside a junction box located in daughter's room.
Test each receptacle in room to confirm that nothing on that circuit has power.
If some receptacles have power, start opening other receptacle boxes looking for loose wire, especially at the quick-connects where wires stab into back of receptacle device.
If whole circuit is off, then to isolate location of loose wire, start at the ceiling box, and see if there is a loose black or white wire. Most electricians run wire from breaker to the ceiling box, and then other wires spread out from there and go box to box until each box has a black and white wire that connects back to original breaker.

Breaker tripped, wouldn't reset. After about 20 minutes it reset.


YES YOU ARE IN DANGER. DO NOT turn this breaker on again. Please get a registered electrician. There is a risk of fire or even explosion. BE CAREFUL. Have you got a smoke alarm?

Hi, Most likely the outlet has a loose wire or the cord for the refridgerator has a loose wire. Check the outlet on the wall see if it moves at all or has any loose wires in the back...if that looks ok replace the cord to the refridgerator. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike
