The Steps of Resetting a Tripped Circuit Breaker

Your electricity in Annapolis comes with a few built-in safety features that protect your electrical system from excessive voltage. These residential electric service safety features can be especially helpful during the holidays when people use decorative outdoor lighting to celebrate. Watch this video clip for a quick look at the steps of resetting a tripped circuit breaker.

Your circuit breaker might trip when your circuit becomes overloaded. This occurs so that the rest of your electrical system is protected when too much electricity flows through the breaker. If only one socket stops working, try unplugging your appliances and pushing the reset button on the outlet. If an entire wall or room loses power, you will need the panel box. Find the tripped breaker and push it to the off position before switching it back to the on position. If it will not turn on, plug in one appliance at a time to find the root of the residential electric service problem.
