Why Won’t My Circuit Breaker Stay On?

The Plumbing & Electrical Doctor

Fuse won't stay on? A circuit breaker is an automatically operated electrical switch designed to act as a big ON-OFF switch. Once a fault/overload is detected your circuit breaker will “trip” halting the flow of electricity. Unlike a fuse which needs replacement, once it blows a circuit breaker simply gets reset to “ON” position, which means flipping the lever from the tripped position, to the fully “OFF” position, then flipping it back “ON”. If the breaker refuses to “ON” it has either blown or the electrical overload in the circuit is still present, this time you need to call the pros. Contact The Plumbing & Electrical Doctor we’ll send one of our Electricians to have it checked.
