Holmes hch6150 will not produce heat


Without having the heater to tear apart to see what is not working, you may try the following. Your heater is a 1500 watt heater and pulls about 13 amps of current. If you plug it into a recepticle that is already have load turned on, most recepticle circuits are rated for 15 amps and you have probably tripped the breaker for this circuit. Check your breaker panel to see if a breaker is tripped. If it has tripped, this will tell you your pulling to much current. Try another circuit that allows the heater to operate or find the other load on the circuit that is causing the breaker to trip. By the way to reset the breaker take the breaker to full off, this resets the trip, and then turn it back to on.
Hope this helps

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...:)

I have a Bosch b52l iron, when i turn on the steam button, it cuts off the power, what could it be


It could be the iron itself (it may have a short circuit in it) and the circuit breaker trips when the steam switch is turned on.

Option 1)
Another option is that the entire circuit that that circuit breaker is controlling is overloaded. What other outlets / applicances / lights are disabled when that circuit breaker trips? You may have to iron only when those other applicances on that circuit are not being used.

Option 2a) Your outlet may be damaged and causing your circuit breaker to trip when the high current STEAM setting is set.
- OR -
Option 2b) the circuit breaker is damaged and is tripping too easily. Only replace with a similarly sized circuit breaker (15 amp lis likely but is says right on the breaker).

Try the solutions in that order.

1996 harley 883 headlight flickers off real quick every minute or so with a clicking sound and my front and rear blinkers are dead. I turned it off and pulled out the key and it still made the clicking...


You have a short in your electrical system somewhere that is causing your circuit breaker to trip. Harley uses automatic reset circuit breakers rather than fuses. If you get a short in your system somewhere, the current though the circuit breaker will cause it to trip. After a minute or so, the circuit breaker's bi-metal strip inside will cool and the circuit breaker will reset. If the short circuit still exist, the breaker will again trip.

To help find the source of the problem, you must determine which circuit breaker is tripping. In this case it sounds like the "lights" circuit breaker. Since your turn signals are on that circuit and they are not working, I'd start there to look for the reason.

When you turned off the key and it made the clicking noise again, this was probably the circuit breaker resetting itself after you removed the voltage and current flow through it by turning the switch off.

Good Luck

Is there a way to safely load test a breaker to make sure it will trip correctly


Short of using expensive load test equipment about all one can do is purposely overload the circuit. Usually 2 heavy loads will do it for a 20 amp circuit, such as 2 microwaves or a toaster oven. Turn both on at the same time and it won't take long for the breaker to trip. If the breaker trips on overload it will trip on short circuit, so, DO NOT purposely short circuit the breaker as that is a lot of unneccessary wear and tear on the breaker.

My breaker is conected to a hot tub. tub was working fine in auto mode. Turned on jets and breaker tripped. will not reset can you help me


I am assuming this is a GFCI circuit breaker? If it is it will have a "test" button on the breaker. When you say "jets" i'm assuming you mean when you turn on the blower to make the air bubbles? It could be you have a problem with the blower motor. When you start the blower, it trips the breaker. Be sure the blower is in off position when you reset the breaker. The most common fault though on a spa/hot tub is with the heater. If the element goes bad, and current flows to ground, it will trip the GFCI breaker. Again try and turn all functions off. Reset breaker, and then turn on one at a time till the breaker trips. First the pump, then the heat, then the blower.

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!
