Understanding Your Circuit Breakers
One of the most common electrical troubles that you will run into is going to be a tripped circuit breaker of a blown fuse.
It is best to know where your circuit breakers or fuse box are located well in advance and become some what accustomed to it.
Don’t wait till you have no lights and then run across the house in dismay or panic not knowing what to do. More often than not for those who loose lights or power in one of the rooms of your own home you will just should re-set your circuit breaker or change your fuse.
Inside your circuit breaker box you will see a bunch of black items that appear like switches that move left to right or side to side. When a breaker is tripped it is best to see a red indicator on the left side of the breaker switch itself. Most breaker switches are designed this manner, although I’ve seen some that do not show this and the only way you’ll know that it is tripped is by re-setting the breaker.
Re-setting the breaker is solely done by switching from left to right, you’ll hear a distinct click as you do this, that’s the purpose of re-setting.
