Circuit Breaker Tripped Off
How to Re-set a Circuit Breaker
The first thing to understand is that a circuit breaker can tripped off even when it still looks like it's set to the "ON" position. This is because when a circuit breaker shuts off it can sometimes trip off internally, without the On/Off handle actually flipping to the "OFF" position. Breakers trip for a reason so make sure you know why it tripped before reseting it and get the problem corrected first. So this is what you do when you have a loss of power that you suspect may be caused by a tripped circuit breaker.
1. Shut down any computer equipment that may be effected by a loss of power.
2. Go to your circuit breaker panel and firmly flip the first breaker OFF and then back ON again.
3. Do the same thing with each circuit breaker until you have flipped all of the circuit breakers OFF and then back ON again.
4. Now go check and see whatever didn't have power in now back on again.
If your power has been restored... You're done! If your power is still out, it's time to call True Tech Electric.
Note: About 25% of all electrical power problems can be solved using the above technique. Good Luck!
