If the Siemens 20Amp 1-pole arc-fault circuit breaker is wired correctly and there are no problems with the circuit that it is protecting, when first turning it to the ON position, the amber light will come on then go out after about 10 seconds or so.

If the breaker is wired incorrectly or there is a fault in the circuit the amber light will stay on.

is it 110 or 220? if it is a 110 first check your breaker/ fuse panel for tripped breaker or blown fuse if 220 it would be a double breaker. if you find tripped breaker remember some panels require you to turn the breaker fully off then back on to reset. if 110 and no blown breakers, check your laundry room for a GFI (ground fault interrupt) outlet. make sure that it is not tripped either. to reset that just push the reset button on the outlet. best of luck to you

I have an Symmetra RM APC and there is an amber light showing and a beeping about every 30 seconds.


Hi Ewiesemann,

The amber light on the UPS usually means that the unit is 'on battery' -- meaning that input power is affected. Check to make sure that unit is plugged in and check to make sure that a breaker on a panel feeding the UPS power hasn't tripped.

Hope this helps.

Breaker popped and wont reset yellow light on arc fault breaker after plugging in small humidifier unplugged but it wont reset


Hi, I don't know if this has been solved or not, but anytime these G.F.I. breakers trip, it is for safety because it is picking up a voltage leak from what ever appliance has been plugged in. If it does not reset, it must be a older breaker and you will need to run down and pick up another one. Home Depot is a good place to get one for around $20. With it tripped, no voltage will be present. Just take a flat blade screw driver to remove the wire from the breaker. Depending on the type/style, most just hook opposite the screw side. Just grasp the breaker where the terminal screw is and give it a pull straight out to you. When you install new one, just hook the right side under the lip, and push left side in place and reconnect hot and neutral coiled wire. You will be set! Always be safe when working around any high voltage source. Please rate me on my help to you. Thank you!

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.

My daughter's '97 Honda Accord has a "maintenance required" light on the dash that's in the red. Does this mean there's something serious wrong? Or just scheduled maintenance is overdue? The milage is...


It just means it time to change your oil. If it has been changed recently and you just want to shut your light off just hold down the trip reset button. While holding it down turn the ignition on but do not start the engine. keep holding the button down for approx. 10 secs. the light should start flashing and then go out. then release the trip reset button and turn the ignition off. and the light will be reset.

Eaton Arc Fault Breaker type BRAF tripped. I reset it but lights will not work. Ideas please?


My arc fault breaker trips in my bedroom when ever a load is put on line. The trunk line comes into a three gang switch box and feeds the entire room. At times I can turn my ceiling fan and light on for 10 to 20 minutes before the breaker trips. Other times the breaker will trip when either switch is first turned on. I plugged a 4 watt night light in a wall receptical, without the ceiling light or fan on, it also trips the breaker. I have had other plug in lamps, 60 watt, work in other recepticals for a while. The problem seems to appear in all recepticals and lighting in the room.

My service engine light just came on and i'm wondering what that might mean and what i need to do about it now.


service due light or engine management light??
service light should be a spanner symbol engine light should be amber -yellow colour and looks like a gearbox.
service light.check if your vehicle is due a service if so book it in with your main dealer for a service and they will reset the warning indicator ,or if you know someone local who maintains your car they can reset the service light by holding in the reset trip button whilst turning ignition to pre start position on the display it should count down from ten -0 then reset itself and the light should go out.
management light
this can only be looked at by a suzuki main dealer where they have the correct diagnostic equipment .
dont worry to much if the car feels and drives ok its probably picked up a small fault in the ecu and will be cleared with the diagnostic check .

My Eaton 20 amp Arc fault breaker tripped during a storm this morning. I tried the usual turn it off and back on deal and its still tripped off. It has a test button, which ive tried in the off and on...


this is going to be a long process, you have a short on the line or the breaker is gone.
you need to unplug all of the appliances that are on that line. (controlled by that breaker).
turn on the breaker. plug in one appliance at a time till the breaker trip again. unplug the last appliance that you have plugged in. that will be the cause of the short.
after all appliance unplugged and still trip the breaker, then you need a new breaker.

3-pole 60 Amp Circuit Breaker is tripped and won't reset.


When this breaker tripped, it did not go fully to off. Push the breaker all the way off and then all the way to on. It should be fine. If not manually push it to full off once again and then back on. If both attempts fail the breaker will have to be replaced. good luck.
