If you disconnect the load wires on the breaker and it will not reset, the breaker has a fatal flaw.

IF the breaker ONLY fails to reset with the load wires connected EITHER there is a wrong connection like servicing a shared neutral 3 wire cable from the breaker, or there is an electrical fault OR there is interference from a source that couples radio-like noise onto the wires to this.

Why are these breakers hot and constantly draw .35 amps from the ground bar?


When current is going through wiring and devices it normally operates warm. That is why most wire and devices such as breakers are rated at 70 degrees Celsius. In a panel, heat can be transferred through the buss bar they are connected to.
Breakers will trip for 2 reasons. Overload amperage and heat.

15amp Eaton Arc fault breaker type BRAF trips every day at same time. There are no high amp electrical things plugged in. What is causing this? should I have it replaced?


"Arc fault" breakers trip when an arc occurs, either in a receptacle or a light switch, for example. An arc can be caused by an old light switch, when turning it on. An arc can also occur when you unplug a chord while the device is still turned on or running.

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.
